Dell Preinstalled Ubuntu System

My wife and I bought a laptop from Dell preinstalled with Ubuntu. I am impressed with Dell for this offering. I have only been using this system for a short couple of hours but I like it.

The specifications are a Intel Centrino dual core 1.83 mhz cpu 1 Gb of ram 15.4 inch screen. Has a green top DVD burner and even has some ports I wasnt expecting. The wireless card was an intel that was already installed and ready to go. So far I am impressed and again thanks to Dell for offering this with Ubuntu.

I have been with this laptop now for about 6 months and I tell you I couldn't be happier. Everything works as stated its a solid laptop and the best part is I didn't have to pay the Redmond Tax.

this is the sd and media slot. got to use this a few times to take pictures from our camera and put them on the notebook.

right side of the laptop has a burner and lots of USB ports.

the left side has vga out, hdmi, firewire, ethernet and more USB ports.

laptop keyboard and monitor.
