Hi Ubuntu users,

I want to purchase a new laptop, thinking of relatively small one (~11 inch) but not a netbook. I called Dell, they told me that they discontinued to serve for Ubuntu preinstalled laptops. Do you know any other laptops that has ubuntu preinstalled I can buy in the UK? Also, has anyone try Ubuntu on HP Pavilion dm1-3201sa?

Also, for those who buy a new Win installed PC, do you usually decided to use the dual-boot? Until now I always have used the used PCs for Ubuntu so I had no problem to delete Win. But now I have an option to buy a brand new PC (although I prefer to get Ubuntu pre-installed machine), I wonder what you guys decided to do on Windows (delete? dualboot? virtual machine?) since you at least put some money on Win portion...

Any good idea will be appreciated.

cheers,

Uki
