I have been asked by lot of people about machine with Pre-Installed Ubuntu. So, Since last six month, i am finding Pre-installed Ubuntu on Desktops, Netbooks and Laptops in consumer / retail market (Say Malls / On-line / Off-line Hardware Shops ). I was looking for OEM Supplied Pre-Installed Ubuntu and their advertisement in Local Newspaper / Demo Machine @ Shops / On-line Shops, etc…. I have also documented few in past andĀ  blogged them, like Desktop with Pre-installed Ubuntu and Netbook with Pre-installed Ubuntu.

Now, time for laptop. Dell Vostro 1015 is coming with Pre-installed Ubuntu and it’s also advertise it [1] in Local News paper, check this one from Divya Bhasker, Gujarat. Here is PDF version of it.

So, now we have complete range of Pre-Installed UbuntuĀ  Desktop / Laptop / Netbook. It’s clearly says that OEMs are interested in promoting Pre-Installed Ubuntu machines. It gives them freedom also.

    Yes, Dell has been better of all Manufacturers at using Ubuntu in their products. And their Ubuntu version works very well, all drivers covered. Good to go.
    But I wish they start pushing bit more in consumer space, as Vostro is still Business brand, small business :)
    I hope they start putting Ubuntu in Inspiron,Studio range more. That will cut costs and give freedom to users.

    Thanks Hardik,
    You should have a permanent, regularly updated (as it happens) page of Ubuntu gear available in India. I too get asked quite often, and it’s a drag to spend a couple of hours to find it. This should not be a state secret or somethin’ but widely-publicised information.
    Thanks

    Thanks for this really nice and informative post.
    I have been looking for Dell Netbooks with preinstalled Ubuntu for months but luck hasnt been on my side (yet). So I would be really grateful if you could tell me whether there are any websites where I can buy online or guide me to stores in Delhi.

    Thanks you :)
