Default High Spec models now shipping with Ubuntu - 09-30-2008, 02:46 PM

Dell have updated their website to allow a choice of Ubuntu on the 2 higher (both originally Windows XP) specs.

Naturally, the price for these units is slightly cheaper...

Bummer.... if that had been an option i would have gone for the 16 gig nd better webcam.... i might have even added the bluetooth


--- EDIT 1 ---
The other interesting thing is that when you select the ubuntu option on the high spec there does not apper to be a shippping delay warning like there still is on the 4/512 standard mini... make me wonder if there may be other differences in the system???
