Back when it was easy to get Ubuntu on Dells in the late 2000-aughts, I got an Inspiron 1545n, with Ubuntu. It came with 8.04, but, by the time I purchased it, 9.04 was in release. With my hardware upgrades at time of purchase, I think it cost about $400.

I still have the machine. In the intervening years, I've doubled the RAM to 4GB and it's now running Slackware --Current.

I remember the 1545, I really liked that model. Had one myself, although I had to spend extra and get Windows in order to get the high resolution LCD.
