    Why don't you check out ...They have great products, and support ONLY Ubuntu! Just a thought.

    Otherwise, most of your specs look fine...the only one that I would wonder about is your modem. But then again, the only experience I have had with a 56k modem and Ubuntu wasn't a pleasant one.

    Good luck!

    first of all that computer should work fine with ubuntu. The intel wireless chip is very compatible and it is good that you have nvidia over ati.

    As for system76 Im not positive if they ship to italy. If not though you can also checkout

    Another question:
    Does nVidia Quadro NVS 135M support 3D effect? (Compiz, Gaming, ....)
