New Dell Linux systems

To coincide with the release of new Inspiron laptops and desktops running Windows, Dell has also launched two new Linux equivalents, loaded with Ubuntu. The laptop is a version of the 1420N, measuring 14.1 inches; it runs off a 1.5GHz Core 2 Duo processor, and has integrated graphics and 1GB of RAM. The hard disk holds 80GB, and the optical drive is a 24x DVD combo model. Wireless comes in the form of 802.11a/b/g.

The desktop is the 530N, which offers a choice of three Core 2 Duo processors, ranging from a 1.6GHz model with 1MB of L2 cache to a 1.8GHz chipset with a 2MB cache. Graphics are integrated here as well, and RAM is limited to 512MB, but storage is doubled to 160GB, and the combo drive is a faster 48x. A 17-inch LCD is included, as is a keyboard and mouse. The 530N starts at $449, while the 1420N begins at $774.
