It may take them a while to add their customizations. But with each new release, more of the Dell additions make it upstream into the main Ubuntu release. I am using the 8.04 beta on my 1520 and while quite a few things needed tweaking in 7.04, there was less in 7.10 and NOTHING that needed tweaking in 8.04 for me.

I'd say you could safely do a dist upgrade as soon as you get your laptop.
