http://forums.opensuse.org – Ubuntu-ready Dell desktop looks like a nettop - News - Linux for Devices "Dell announced new Ubuntu Linux-ready OptiPlex desktops, including a power-efficient model claimed to be the "world's smallest fully-functional commercial desktop." In addition to the 9.4 x 2.6 x 9.3-inch, Intel Core 2 Duo-ready OptiPlex 780 USFF desktop, Dell announced a 13-inch Vostro V13 laptop that also offers Ubuntu. (...) The new Vostro V13 notebook measures 13.0 by 9.1 by 0.65 inches, only slightly larger than high-end netbooks, and it weighs only 3.5 pounds. However, the device's business-like look, featuring a brushed-aluminum casing with reinforced zinc hinges, appears to target users who want a lightweight notebook, but are ashamed that a netbook will look too childish."
