Dell Introduces $299 Ubuntu Laptop

Dell last week introduced a 15.6 ” notebook with Ubuntu 8.10  installed by default.  Base specification of the new Dell 15n are

Intel® Celeron® 585 (1MB cache/2.16GHz/667Mhz FSB)
Ubuntu Desktop Edition version 8.10
Jet Black
1Yr Ltd Warranty and Mail-In Service
Glossy, widescreen 15.6 inch display (1366×768)
2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 800MHz
160GB SATA Hard Drive (5400RPM)
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD
8X CD / DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive)
Dell Wireless 1397 802.11g Half Mini-Card
4-cell battery
High Definition Audio 2.0
Integrated 10/100 Network Card

This laptop is a full $50 less than the Windows Vista version you know you really didn’t want and would be fantastic for all the basic tasks laptops are used for…web browsing, chat and basic office tasks.  Best of all it comes with Ubuntu and all the great software available in their repositories (forget paying extra for an office suite or DVD burning software, it’s in there) at no extra cost.  I recently bought a netbook so I’m not currently in the market for a new portable machine but if I were I expect there would be a new Dell 15n in my shopping cart.
