The Specs for My Ubuntu PC

A reader recently asked me for the exact specs of my Ubuntu PC, which I recently purchased from Dell. Here are the specs, but please note that I’m still waiting for the PC to arrive.

For (US) $1,290.00, I purchased the following system:

  • Intel Core 2 Duo Processor at 2.13GHz with 4MB cache
  • 2GB DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz
  • Dell USB keyboard
  • 22 inch LCD display
  • 256MB nVidia video card
  • 320GB serial ATA 2 Hard Drive with 7200RPM
  • Dell 13-in-one media card reader
  • Ubuntu Desktop Edition 7.04 with 1 year basic support
  • Dell USB 2-button mouse
  • Integrated NIC cvard
  • No modem requested
  • 16X DVD-ROM and 16X DVD+/-RW
  • Integrated audio
  • Dell 30 Watt 2.1 steeo speakers and subwoofer
  • 1 year limited warranty
  • Extended support from Ubuntu (Dell doesn’t offer support for Ubuntu, even though it comes pre-installed)

I also paid about (US) $110.00 in tax, for a total bill of about (US) $1400.00. I expect the system to ship around June 12 with an arrival date sometime shortly thereafter. I’ll let you know how it goes.
