    Dell Inspiron 3471 compatibility with Ubuntu 18.04 and future LTS

    Hi, I am thinking of buying a Dell Inspiron 3471 desktop computer. Does anyone have any experiences - good or bad - with using this hardware to run recent versions of Ubuntu?

    I am using Ubuntu 18.04 at the moment but will certainly want to upgrade to 20.xx when it is out and stable.

    The reason I am thinking of buying the new computer is that I have experienced an issue with an old acer m3985 which was to do with it not booting up correctly. This other issue is here: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2440471. Of course I definitely don't want to have this issue with the new system!

    I have posted in this forum because there are two related issues which I have raised in this forum and hoped that this would be okay given how closely related the three issues are.

    Not comparable with the other situation and neither is a matter of compatibility.

    From the specs I have read on Dell's website https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/desk...n-3671-desktop ,
    you should have no issues running any one of the current *buntu distros.
    Are you planning to dual boot *buntu/win10? Be sure to read up on installation into a dual boot configuration (see what oldfred has written on this)
