[ubuntu-uk] Who's got/ordered Dell Ubuntu Laptops?

Why buy the Dell laptop then?(and not another cheaper or maybe more
expensive but better model)

Surely the point in buying a Dell Ubuntu laptop is that there is support
with it to help setup the pc, isn't this is more an end user thing?

Or am I being stupid?

No idea, but since I didn't buy into the support package, I don't 
suppose it really makes any difference to me. The only reason I'd need 
to contact Dell is if there was a hardware fault. Most OS/Software 
faults I can diagnose/repair myself.
