Post Ubuntu Version of Dell Inspiron Mini Released in Europe - 09-25-2008, 09:51 AM

[news-img:2u3ipfqp]http://www.mydellmini.com/images/news/ubuntu_logo.jpg[/news-img:2u3ipfqp]Dell have just updated their website to add an Ubuntu model for their European consumers.

The unit has the same spec as the existing european model, except its has pre-installed Ubuntu 8.04 with a downgraded 8gb SSD, and the 1.3mp webcam now comes as an optional upgrade from a 0.3mp. The whole units clocks it at £269/€349 delivered. The Windows XP Home model remains untouched, except being moved into a customisable cart - with no customisable options other than warranty.

Both models are still explicitly only available in black, so we must wait more for the exciting new colour ranges!

Check out the Dell European Models.

Hmm £20 less then the Windows XP version yet it has half the disk space and no xp license, can the cost of both of these things put together be less then £20????

Bit of a rip off imo, its more cost effective to just buy the 16GB and then install Ubuntu

What's the shipping date? I've still got 2 weeks before Dell is supposed to ship mine, and I ordered 3 weeks ago (I'm in the US).

1.3 Megapixel version removed - I ordered while it was an option and I soon got an email saying I had to downgrade to 0.3 megapixel or cancel my order.

By the way, amazon have 16 GB SD cards for £20 including postage & packing...
