Here's a laugh.  The laptops come in 3 SSD sizes.  The largest size is only 
available for Windows.  We buy a lot from Dell, and have our own account rep 
and configurations.  We asked Dell if we could get Ubuntu on the largest 
drive.

The initial answer was something like "Yes you are correct, there are only 3 
drive sizes."

When we rephrased the request (in homage to the movie "Philadelphia", so a 4 
year old could understand it) we were told that, "no, you can only get the 
larger drive with XP preinstalled."

So, although we are a Dell shop, we are going to give it one last shot at 
getting a bare drive with access to any proprietary drivers for the Ubuntu 
install, and then install Ubuntu ourselves.  If that fails, we are going to 
buy eeePCs instead.
