Few hours ago we informed that Dell expanded its Ubuntu offering. They introduced a brand new Inspiron version, coded 1420 N. Unlike previously, this time we can make exact price comparison with a Windows-based model (Inspiron 1420). De-select a custom color of the Windows notebook (and save $20) and the only difference will be an operating system. Ubuntu ($774) vs. Windows Vista Home Basic Edition (the most crippled version, $799). So it looks like Home Basic costs Dell $25 + what_it_gets_from_software_vendors_for_installing_their_crapware.
Windows-based dell is exactly $25 more expensive
