    Anyone try a Dell Studio Hybrid yet?

    Dell has been showing off this "green" PC for a while now, but this week is the first time I can recall actually seeing it on sale. You can get it with up to a T9500, 4GB RAM, Blu-Ray, and X3100. It has DVI and HDMI outs and TosLINK, so in theory, this could make a sweet little front end. Since theory doesn't always line up with reality, if you happen to grab one, post up your review here.

    I was wondering the exact same thing. I need a new frontend and this box would look nice next to my tv. Anyone out there confirmed that it works well in Ubuntu?

    I am a little concerned about its Intel based graphics card. I believe it used a "Intel® Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator X3100". Anyone know if that accelerator works well in Ubuntu? OpenGL and that sort of thing.

    Addition:

    There is another thread about this system: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=875771

    The X3100 chipset works great with MythTV! See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=822606
