    They're here! Today we're unveiling our three consumer systems -- the XPS 410n and Dimension E520n desktops and the Inspiron E1505n notebook -- with the Ubuntu 7.04 Linux distribution factory installed. Available 4pm (CST) today in the U.S., the systems target the Linux enthusiast community and are a direct result of your feedback here on IdeaStorm. It's true… later today you will be able to customize and purchase Dell’s Ubuntu systems at www.dell.com/open.


    Just as you asked, the base price for each system is competitively priced and fully configured. Hardware support is available through normal Dell support channels, along with the option of selecting Ubuntu-specific support through Canonical, and a variety of software support options are available. Click here to read all the details about the configurations and the support options. And check out today's post on Direct2Dell to watch a vlog from Dell's Linux Engineering team sharing their perspectives on today's announcement. Be sure to stop by and tell us what you think on Direct2Dell.
    They'll be available in 30 minutes!

    I was hoping they'd have a extremely basic laptop for a little cheaper than $599. If it was about the same price as Dell's cheapest laptop . . . I'd pick one up.
