Well, I'll possibly be getting a shiny, *new* Dell Studio 15 laptop. Dell offer Ubuntu on this laptop, but I'll need Windows (and then I'll partition the drive to put Ubuntu on it as dual boot). I assume the Windows laptop is no different from the Ubuntu laptop save for a few pounds. Has anyone had a good experience with this laptop, can they recommend it?

Thanks, Tom.

I have a Studio 1535 and it's a really nice Laptop. I haven't tried Ubuntu on it yet as I don't hate Vista as much as I thought I would (Plus I need Office 2007 so I didn't see the point in getting rid of Vista). I've heard about problems with the Touch Media Buttons but I've not had any problems.

Does anyone know how well it works with Compiz and 3D graphics? It's got a 256 MB ATI Radeon but how compatible is this?
