I've built computers over the last 6 years. But recently I have grown tired of tracking down components and building a PC up from there. (I am in the military and it is hard on base to find good cheap computer parts.) About seven months ago my old desktop computer was dying (it was about two years old so about time to replace it) so instead of doing what I always did I purchased a Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop.

I enjoyed the fact that I got exactly what I wanted in a new PC, at half the cost I would normally pay, and without have to track down the individual parts and put them together. In fact I enjoyed it so much that when my laptop was starting to run sluggish, lost it's on board WAN card, and it's on board wired card was running at 10H. I broke down and purchased a Dell Inspiron 1525.

Both of these PCs are excellent considering what I paid for them, plus I have support for three years, and will probably not need to replace them till then. Before Dell announced they were going to release Ubuntu PCs, I would have never purchased from them. But, since they are showing support for one of my favorite OS's, I gave them the benefit of the doubt this time and I am glad I did.

I'm one of those people who purchased the 1420 N. I love it. Sure it's not as thin as a Macbook. It's also a bit heavy with the 9 cell battery but overall I think that it is extremely fast and with Ubuntu 8.04 I find it to be very stable. Honestly, I hardly use my iMac now.
