Ordered a New Laptop - Dell Studio 17 - Running Ubuntu

I just ordered a new laptop for home. This will be used as my workstation/desktop replacement.

Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope comes out April 23, and this machine will get a fresh copy. I'm hoping all my hardware works good with it.


  • Dell Studio 17
  • 64 bit
  • Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 (2.00GHz/800Mhz FSB/2MB cache)
  • 4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 800MHz
  • 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650
  • 250GB SATA Hard Drive (7200RPM)
  • Glossy widescreen 17.0 inch display (1920x1200)
  • 8X CD/DVD Burner
  • Intel WiFi Link 5100 802.11agn Half Mini-Card
  • Back-lit Keyboard

I will post again to tell how the hardware compatibility with Ubuntu and Linux is.
