Can't buy preinstalled 10.10 on Dell Latitude E5520

Asked by Neil Simmonds on 2011-04-19

Ubuntu certification refers to preinstalled 10.10 only on the Dell Latitude E5520.
Dell say they can't sell it pre-installed.
How does that work ?

This is all they will give me by way of 'guarantee'.

Hi,

The latitude E5520 will support Ubuntu 10.10 version .

Hi Neil,

This system is known to have problems with Ubuntu 10.10 using a 'stock' Ubuntu image (the one available from ubuntu.com). The Dell agent may have a different definition of 'support' than you do, or we do.

The aim is to have it working well with Ubuntu 11.04 (out very soon).

Thanks,

Can you help with this problem?
