Dell XPS M1330 Linux in US

Dell this morning followed through on its promise last week and began offering the XPS M1330 with Linux in the US. The system is the first XPS in the country to come preloaded with Ubuntu Linux and brings features that were not previously options with Dell's Linux systems, such as an LED-lit display and a slot-loading DVD burner.

The American model, however, is more limited than versions in Europe. Beyond being confined to a black outer shell color, the M1330 in the US lacks the 64GB solid-state and 320GB rotating hard drive options of its overseas equivalent. The system is accordingly less expensive. At $954, the stock model ships with a 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of memory, a 120GB hard drive, and GMA X3100 video. Upgrades boost the system up to 2.2GHz along with 4GB of memory and a 200GB conventional hard disk. Orders begin today with stock systems arriving in customer hands in less than two weeks.
