Yes - that's what I did with my current laptop, but only because the 
later versions of Ubuntu (beginning with 10.04 and now with 12.04) 
supported the hardware - previous versions did not. (Well not all of it).
That's my concern - that if I buy an up to the minute laptop with 
Windows installed, and then find that 12.04 doesn't work properly, I'm 
in for a (possible) lot of hassle - hence the desire to get one with 
Ubuntu pre-installed.
