I really like dell kit, not a fan of inspirons though would rather have
latitudes though, personally I would rather dell offered it on a lot more
machines rather than just them and 1 desktop. 

As for my professional relationship with Dell, they are the main pc
manufacturer we put into clients and if we could get optiplexes and
latitudes with Ubuntu on them I would seriously consider using them for
this, and they have been told this also.

Some people like Dell kit :)

There's also the fact that you're showing Dell support. Proving that
there are people out there who will buy a PC with non-Windows.
