    Re: What DELL model do you have?

    I have a Dell Inspiron 530 running Linux Mint 1.10 , Ubuntu 12.4 ,Puppy Linux Wary-431-Lupo 528-and Lighthouse Puppy and WinXp in Virtual Box My main business machine, runs great.
    Bought this machine for 240.00 including 20 inch LCD from a person losing it in pawn.

    Also Dell Dimension 4100 runing Lubuntu 1.04 and Puppy Linux Wary 5 given to me. Runs great

    Also Dell Dimension 4500 I paid 20.00 for running Puppy Linux 431 Retro and Lubuntu 11.4 -Runs great! Love the slide in drive setup.

    Also Dell Inspiron 531s I just bought at the thrift shop owned by a local church for $2.50 ! It is running LM 13 , Win Vista is installed but I am having trouble with an out of range error I suspect is due to a faulty NVidia driver. It runs great and the price was right!

    I have sold more old Dells than I can remember since getting into Linux and have used them myself. The problems I have had with them are few and repairing them and finding drivers is no problem. If only my father had taken a chance and invested $1000.00 to buy 10% of Dell when it was still a home biz and his buddy who knew the founders gave him that chance would have Dell tatooed on my arm :}

    Re: What DELL model do you have?

    In addition to the Dell Vostro 1400 I noted earlier in this thread, I recently purchased an M101z, and I've been very happy with it.

    The trackpad is one of the best I've used, and Ubuntu responds well to two-finger scrolling with it.

    Unity 3d performs like a champ, and both Ethernet and wifi worked out of the box.

    In fact, the only thing that makes this a 99%-compatible system is the long-standing issue we've seen with so many models in which waking from sleep a certain number of times will eventually cause it to be unable to reconnect to wifi. It works great 10, 15, sometimes 20 sleep cycles, but eventually it won't be able to reconnect.

    Fortunately I put a fast SSD in this puppy so rebooting takes only a few seconds. And the issue is so intermittent that I rarely need to do that.

    I just installed Mint 13-64 on my old Dell Inspiron 530n. This model came with Ubuntu 7.10 or 7.04 already installed.

    I am amazed, at how fast this machine is. I did install 4Gb memory on the machine (it came with only 2GB). I had been running 8.04 on it for the past 4 years. Performance is excellent now. Thought I would have to junk the machine, but it run extremely well.

    I am now running Ubuntu 12.04-64 on an older HP Pavilion (about 3 years old) with added memory and a new hard drive (the old HD died). Runs extremely well too.

    No question that the upgrades to 64bit and added memory make a huge difference.
