    Dell XPS 15z

    I'm in need of a new laptop, and I've been looking at the Dell XPS 15z. I plan to set it up to dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu (same setup I'm running now on my aging Dell XPS).

    Does anyone have any gouge on known issues with the XPSz and Ubuntu? The graphics card is an NVidia with Optimus, but my impression is that there are workarounds for that.

    If anyone can point me to some warnings/issues, or explain why this is a bad/good idea, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks!
