Couldn't really say this on the pcspecialist site for obvious reasons.
Glad you made it here.  Dell is now offering a laptop (one of the
Inspiron range) pre-loaded with Ubuntu.  I quote Raj Mohan from Dell in
a recent e-mail: "Regarding the availability of Ubuntu Linux OS on the
Dell system, recently, we have received updated from the sales team that
this OS is available as of now on Inspiron 15R only."
I have an older Inspiron that I changed over to Ubuntu and the touchpad
on that is just fine.
