Dell Linux Laptop???

About 3 weeks ago, I saw that Dell had their 15.4" Linux laptop on sale for about $450. Wanted to try a major brand Ubuntu based Laptop, so I ordered one.

Well I still don't have the machine and I got a call from Dell telling me that the machine is backordered another week.

No wonder Michael Dell had to come back. What a mess. My previous experiences with Dell have been very positive. Generally you would order something and get it within a week. This time they projected a 2 week turn around, and now I'm looking at more like 4 weeks. Not a good way to do business.

Still looking forward to the machine. My previous Dell's had great keyboards and were very durable. It will be nice to have one again, without Windows on it!
