The Dell small/medium business site is like an Easter Egg hunt in late August. You may find some eggs, but they won't be nice fresh units with very much RAM.
In addition to the Latitude 2120, I found 3 "Ubuntu Vostro" laptops. They are the V131, 1440, and 1540, they all have just 2Gbytes of RAM. The RAM might be expandable, but I couldn't do it through the ordering page that I found. (2Gbytes is pathetic for 2012, but not as pathetic as the 1Gb base (upgradable to 2Gb) for the Latitude 2120.)
I looked at a few high end servers on both the HP and Dell sites, and they supported Linux. The challenge is finding Linux as an option on a laptop. I could not find any HP laptops that shipped with Linux. Did anyone else have better luck? Did I miss any Dell laptops with Linux?
