They really can't say that as we needed another new laptop for an associate 
pastor and could not get one from Dell.  We all, except one who runs Kubuntu 
on his Mac, run Dell Inspiron 1525n laptops.  We need a webcam for Skype, 
Open Office, and decent DVD video playing ability.  We had to go to in order to get a suitable one.  We 
also replaced our desktops and because we could not get a Dell desktop 
either, we bought two Phoenix Pros from here, with Ubuntu 9.10 on them which of 
course we instantly upgraded to Kubuntu to match our backed up office files.  
We will change them to LTS a couple of weeks from now.  Sadly, we can no 
longer trust Dell to provide decent machines for us so will likely upgrade 
through these two places.  And because it is a business system, we do fire 
people for trying to connect to our network with a windoze machine.
