Dell to offer Ubuntu on more systems

via DesktopLinux.com, Dell is apparently going to offer Ubuntu on a couple of new systems:

Dell isn’t resting on its recent consumer Linux PC laurels. The computing giant has added a new laptop — the Inspiron 1420 Notebook — to its Ubuntu Linux 7.04 offering. It is also replacing the Dimension E520 desktop with the new, low-priced Inspiron 530.

The E530 seems like a lower-powered entry-level system. Which is probably a good idea for budget-conscious users. And those are exactly the type of users that may be willing to switch to Ubuntu to save some dollars. But I’d prefer to see a higher-end desktop configured with Ubuntu. Give me something with a faster processor and a more powerful nVidia GPU, por favor!
