There where 3 main reasons I bought it.
1. I wanted to support a big manufacturer putting linux onto
desktop/laptop machines, as unless people support it, it won't take off.
2. It was fantastic to have a machine turn up at the door that worked
with what I wanted out of the box. No more opening the box then
reformatting/sorting out hardware problems etc
3. I didn't buy it. Being a penniless student my old man purchased it
for me. He trusts Dell with his card details rather than some other name
he might not have heard of.
Mainly though I got it for points 1 and 2, though having it as I wanted
it more or less out of the box was a really big boon for me as I enjoy
being lazy :-)
