I got the W7 version. Not sure if that one is as hot a deal as the Ubuntu version though

Pass this info along to help you guys decide easier:

dell.com has this with no sale $419 but with 2GB ram only..
Specs: copy from other thread.

Ports, Slots & Chassis

Network connector RJ45
VGA
HDMI
(3) USB 2.0
AC adapter connector
Headphone jack
Microphone jack
Audio jack
3-in-1 card reader

Webcam: Camera resolution
1.3 Mega-pixel
Video resolution (maximum)
640 x 480 at 30 FPS
1) When you boot the Ubuntu version for the first time,,, it gives you an option to later on make your own RECOVERY DISC, do that right away.

2) you can wipe out the HDD and install Windows OS yourself without any problem.
3)If you choose to install Windows (eg. Windows 7 64bit), make sure to visit Dell site and download all the Windows drivers first!

4) If you don't want any trouble installing/upgrading Win7, choose $319 vostro 2420 for win 7 option from the link above.

sorry, i only have limited knowledge of computers. I find FS and BB have similar laptops in the same price range with 15.6 screen size. Is this dell laptop much better than those deals offered by FS, BB and staples?
