Due to the size of the keyboard, this issue is usually related to your hands (palm) touching the touchpad while you type. For an experiment, turn off the touchpad and see if the issue goes away. (In XP, there is a DELL Touchpad icon in the toolbar, not sure of the setting in ubuntu).

If you want to know a way to actually fix it, a quick google search:

Follow that and it *should* work.
-2 GB RAM
-4 GB SSD [2 GB SD Card: getting 16 GB SDHC]
Sold for $180 so I could buy Mini 10, XP/Ubuntu, 160GB HD, 1GB RAM, 1366x768 screen, 6-cell for $260.
[Extra screen space IS AMAZING, as is having a working keyboard]
