Let's also recall that Dell has been accused of installing spyware on its Windows systems.
Frankly, I'd prefer that Dell offered a laptop (or other desktop, workstations, ...) with no OS of any kind, but with known good hardware that is known to work with generic kernels and readily available modules.
Having them try and pick and choose one or more distributions at minimum will piss off those whose distribution isn't available from dell.
