Dell launches notebooks with Mandriva Linux

Posted on Tuesday, September 20 2005 @ 10:13:18 CEST by

Last week Dell and Mandriva announced the availability of world's first notebooks pre-loaded with Mandriva Linux. Mandriva worked with Dell to certify this first consumer laptop, which is now being sold direct to students by Dell. The company ensured the optimum integration of its Mandriva Linux Limited Edition 2005 - a major hit in recent Linux downloads and reviews - with Dell's Latitude 110L. The certified computer is a WIFI 1,4 to 1,7 GHZ mobile Celeron or Pentium M, with 256 to 1280 MB of ram, and a DVD Drive.

The availability of Linux on pre-loaded computers is the simplest way for users to start with this operating system (exactly as it is for Windows). People don't have to go through a complex installation, their basic hardware is already configured, and what's more, Mandriva Linux has an all-inclusive collection of quality applications and professional tools.

The Mandriva Dell laptop comes complete with multimedia and productivity software, like the popular Windows-office compatible suite, OpenOffice.org, which means students don't have to buy or install supplementary applications, and actually save money and time. At only 759 euros (~ $940), the combination of Mandriva Linux and the Dell Latitude 110L is currently one of the most affordable notebooks available in developed countries.
