Entry level at best


Dell has finally unveiled its new range of systems which comes pre-installed with Linux. This isn't the first time Dell has offered Linux systems, but it's the first time it has offered consumer level machines with Linux. As rumoured Dell is using the Ubuntu distribution, 7.04 to be precise.

The desktop models consists of the XPS 410n and the Dimension E520n. Both systems are powere by an Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 processor and feature 1GB of system memory. Graphics comes from Nvidia in the shape of a GeForce 7300LE with 256MB of Turbo Cache. The XPS 410n comes with a 19in TFT as standard while the Dimension E520n comes with a 17in model. The XPS 410n start at US$849, with the Dimension E520n coming in at US$599.

Interestingly enough, you can pick up a Dell XPS 410, with Windows Vista Home Premium for $899, which goes to show that Microsofts software might not be worth quite as much as the software giant is trying to tell us.

The third system is a notebook and is an Inspiron 1505n which has a 15.4in widescreen display, integrated Intel GMA950 graphics, 512MB of RAM and a Core Duo T2080 processors. It also starts at a US$599 price point.

It doesn't seem like these new systems have appeared on the Dell website as yet, but expect them to show up shortly.
