View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing to Dell Studio 15 - comments please.

March 31st, 2009, 11:42 PM
Hi guys - I am buying a Dell Studio 15 with 2.53GHz chip, 1066MHz bus, 4Gb ram and 256Mb ATI Radeon HD 3450 graphics card running a resolution of 1920 x 1200.
Hope this is okay for my planned installation of latest version of Ubuntu.
I am looking forward to running it with 3D effects in all their glory (not games, got bored of those years ago). Will mostly use the machine for editing photos using the GIMP unless there are any other suggestions of good alternative to or in addition to the GIMP for editing...
Does anyone have any experience with this sort of spec and running Ubuntu on it?
This is me coming back from a short spell in the wilderness of having to put up with Windows XP being the only OS that will run on my ageing Acer until recently getting Freespire 2.0 to run flawlessly now for around two months. I have even toyed with installing Freespire on my new machine as it works well. Does everything I need.

Any comments welcomed.

Cheers guys.
