I'm thinking about getting a dell precision m4600 and wondering if anybody has yet tried to install ubuntu (or some other distro) one of these puppies.

I've been trying to get the drones at dell chat to give me information on the status of the certified version as outlined here:

http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/...re/201101-6977

But of course have learned nothing.

I'm thinking about just jumping the gun, buying one, and just trying my luck, but was hoping to get some feedback off of you guys first, and to start a thread where news about install woes could be posted as it trickles in.

Is it a good idea at this point to just buy it, or should I wait?

cheers,
