I just purchased Dell Vostro 2520
One of the factors that led me to choose the Dell Vostro was it comes with Ubuntu Linux instead of windows 7 or 8. Not only is Linux a clearly superior OS, it also makes the laptop cheaper.
I do not play latest games. I only play emulator based games that were popular in early 90s such as Final Fight, Alien VS Predator and Midnight Resistance.
And other notable specs are -
4GB, DDR3, 1600MHz, 1 DIMM
Intel Core I3-2328M,2.2,SNB,C MLK
15.6" HD WLED Anti Glare
Intel HD Graphics/HD Graphics 3000
I want to discuss the display. I feel Intel HD 3000 can play video clips without any problem. I read it competes against lower-end dedicated graphics cards.
I am not sure how many of you are aware of the Dell technology called "TrueLife" but it appears this Vostro does not come with that. I always work with Photoshop and I am a little bit worried about that.
