    Well, I must confess that I did not read all 52 pages of this thread; shame on me.
    That being said, I'd be willing to bet that I have one of the oldest (if not THE oldest )
    Dells. It's a Dimension 4550, P-4. I did upgrade it's ram (initially 512M) to the max for this system, to 1G and I upgraded the video card so that it now has 512M of video ram. It's my main machine 'cause we're broke and will upgrade within the next few years, unless it explodes, prior.
    When purchased back around 2002, it obviously didn't come with ubuntu; that wasn't accomplished until 2007; a hearty thank you to M$ and their Vista for causing this change. I could go on, but won't bore you folks any further.

    Re: What DELL model do you have?

    Dell Vostro 3750
    8GB RAM
    500GB 7200rpm HD
    i7-2670M
    Kubuntu x64

    A little pi$$ed that the laptop has the dual Intel/nvidia graphics cards in which I can't utilize 3D suuport without installing bumblebee.

    Everything seems to work except the following:

    - nvidia graphics adapter (currently running on the Intel HD)
    - Fingerprint Reader

    That's about it so far....

    Inspiron 9400 running 12.04

    I'm still learning about how to tweak graphics but I'm impressed at how well compiz can be tweaked even on this intel graphics chip (unfortunately the unity plugin for compiz is choppy, but unity 2d panel + compiz + docky + synapse gives me the experience I like at good speeds)
