    I have had nothing but awesomeness with a base-level Dell Inspiron 6000 (no Bluetooth, 512mb Ram, Intel Extreme Graphics 2). Everything worked out of the box including wifi, sound, video and Ethernet. Runs Compiz fine (better now I upgraded to 1gb ram).

    OOTB 8.04.1, 8.10, 9.04-beta on the mini 9 just work great
    OS upgrade with no hardware upgrade: $0.
    having a smooth first install: ....priceless.

    xps m1330 here. Works fine. Bought it with vista on, and wiped that off within a week.

    I have Dell Inspiron 640M (Intel 945GM, Core Duo E2400, 512 MB Ram, Intel Pro 10/100 Ethernet) laptop with MS Windows XP preinstalled.

    Ubuntu 8.10 runs out of the box and I did not require to configure even for the wifi card. I recommend Ubuntu 8.10 for all who possess Dell Inspiron laptops.

    My dell vostro 1710 works really well.
    * Core2Duo T8300
    * Nvidia 8600M GS
    * Dell minipci Wireless-N

    works almost perfectly. The only problem I've had was with the touchpad/keyboard not working sometimes but that is easily fixed by adding i8042.reset to the end of the kernel boot line.

    I have a Precision M4300 laptop it came with windows xp installed. I installed 8.04 and had problems with the broadcom wireless setup, but some searching and I got the fix for it and it has run smoothly ever since. no problems.

    Re: Which Dell laptop works best with Ubuntu?

    I wish it (wubi ubuntu 8.10) for my Dell Inspiron 1100...I've tried twice to install it but it just won't work. It doesn't give me any error messages...but it does not completely load the ubuntu OS. It goes through the process to the very end but then when I reboot after the install all it does is take me to a blank white screen where I can see the mouse pointer and then hangs there doing nothing. Ugh; and I really want to try Linux
