Dell Ubuntu PC $225 more expensive

Last week word was out on the streets that a Dell PC with Ubuntu would be, on average, $50 cheaper than a comparable system with Windows Vista.

A Slashdot reader today writes about the nasty truth:
Today the status has changed on that page to 'Reneged: Ubuntu Dell is $225 More Than Windows Dell.' The full price of a Ubuntu Inspiron 1420N is indeed $50 cheaper than the identical hardware configuration with Vista — except that a $275 free upgrade to 2GB memory and a 160-GB hard drive is available for Windows only."
