New Inspiron Notebooks: Your Choice of Color, Wireless Connectivity, Integrated Cameras & More


*cough*

Okay, I admit it. I have thrown in the towel; my next laptop is going to be a Dell.

Over the years I had started to think of certain brands (Dell, Apple etc.) as being rather overhyped. However, having joined Dell's Ideastorm.com, I've come to realise that the company is turning the attention back where it belongs - on consumer demands. So, what does this mean?

It means Linux Ubuntu as an Operating System, 1GB RAM on base laptop models (that are under $800 too), laptops without all the stupid trial software which take *hours* to uninstall. And yes, shiny new laptop colors.

Now the only question is: red, green or brown?

ETA: The Pros and Cons
- Green: will always be shiny + winning votes by a mile
- Red: the only other red laptop I've seen (the acer ferrari) costs nearly $2000 *gulp*
- Brown: it might be a good idea to get a laptop in a color that does not scream "OMG STEAL ME NOW!!!1". Earthy and comfortable.
