Dell Unveils New Vostros With Ubuntu

On Wednesday morning Dell announced two new entry-level Vostro laptops and two new entry-level desktops featuring a choice of Ubuntu or Windows Vista.

Dell is targeting emerging countries and small businesses with its newest release of entry-level Vostro laptops and desktops. By eliminating non-essential computing components, Dell says they were able to drive down prices while still providing a reliable product. As it turns out, these new Vostro products come pre-configured with Ubuntu Linux and offer Windows Vista varieties as an available option. The Ubuntu systems come with free open source software including an unspecified office application suite.
