New Dell Ubuntu notebooks

Dell has begun shipping two new Ubuntu Linux variants of existing computers, according to an announcement. The first of these is the Studio 15n, which follows shortly after the release of the standard Studio 15. In its top configuration, the system can be equipped with a 2.56GHz Core 2 Duo, a 1920x1200, 15.4-inch display, 4GB of RAM, and a 200GB hard drive running at 7200rpm. It is limited to integrated graphics, but has a starting price of $700.

The other notebook takes off on an older model, the XPS M1530. The M1530n has the option of a 2.6GHz Core 2 Duo, and comes with 4GB of RAM by default. People can also choose between 250 or 320GB hard drives, or swapping in a 128GB SSD. Video options scale up to a 256MB GeForce 8600M GT. The notebook has a base cost of $1,269.
