Ubuntu Dell Inspiron 6400 : a quick review

Filed under
Ubuntu

A month ago I ordered one of the new Ubuntu Dell on the Dell France website : the Inspiron 6400. The base price was around 450 euros, and I took almost all the upgrades, for a final price of around 750 euros.

The specs are : a Intel dual proc, 2Gb of RAM, 160Gb HD, 15′4 inch screen, i965 video chipset, DVD+RW burner, 9-cell battery, and a 4-year-warranty. That’s it for the laptop itself. I will now focus on Dell’s integration of Ubuntu (more specifically feisty), something that intrigued me.

I boot the computer, Feisty took around one minute to load (with a switch to text view because something was being generated, fonts IIRC), I had a first-time wizard to process, then first bad surprise : I’m in 1024×768 in a 1200×800 widescreen, and I can’t change it.
