Dell XPS M1330 with Linux

Dell today continued its releases with word of its first notebook outside of the Inspiron 1420 to carry Linux. The XPS M1330n is the first high-performance system from the PC maker to come with Ubuntu instead of Windows and adds features that have previously been off-limits to earlier systems running the OS, including the option of a 64GB solid-state drive, a 320GB rotating disk, as well as a display with a webcam and an LED-backlit display. DVD playback support is already installed rather than requiring an add-on software pack, Dell adds.

The system is initially available in Europe starting with France, Germany, Spain, and the UK; in the latter country, the stock M1330n will sell for 599 ($1,167) after tax with a 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of memory, a 120GB hard drive, and Intel's GMA X3100 for integrated graphics; up to a 2.2GHz processor, 4GB of memory, and a 128MB GeForce 8400M GS video chipset will be available. A US release is planned for next week.
