While perusing through the Small Business site, I came across
Dell's "n" series, available in various lines:

"The n series features select popular models from the DimensionTM,
OptiPlexTM and Dell PrecisionTM desktop lines sold without a
Microsoft® operating system. Offered for IT professionals who want
control over operating system development and installation, n series
desktops are available with a copy of the FreeDOSTM open-source
operating system included in the box, ready to install."

I wish they offered the No OS option on the laptops as well (at least in
the small business section). Last time I checked, Windows adds roughly
$50 to the cost of a PC from a major manufacturer. That's not much of a
difference, but for those of us completely uninterested in Windows, it
would be nice to have that option.
