Here’s a leak we can share on an upcoming HP laptop that will be launched this year, and it’s a HP computer that will ship with FreeDOS installed.
Yep, no Windows or Chrome on this model out of the box, just the DOS-compatible but open source operating system that’s free. Though it has a Windows button for users who chose to install Windows later on.
This is not the only HP laptop with FreeDOS though, as HP has to a limited degree even launched a laptop in their Omen family with the FreeDOS.
But this model, the HP 157 will be cheaper than the one in the Omen family, despite featuring digitizer support and even a cradle for the pen built into the keyboard.
