Hola Don,

If you want the machine to arrive with a Distro pre-installed, that 
suggests to me a lack of confidence in doing the job yourself. That 
suggests to me further that you'd be better off getting a Dell for no 
other reason than there appears to me one metric f*** load of forums 
(forii? fora?) on the Internet (which is a series of tubes) where many 
are trying to do exactly the same as you will be, with the exact same 
piece of kit. IE, a choice guided by extent of after-sales help rather 
than any other factor.
