    My computer recently broke and I've decided I'd like to go with Linux on my next one. I'm currently thinking about going with a Dell pre-installed with Ubuntu, since I don't have a ton of Linux experience. I also tend to not keep up with the latest trends with computers.

    That said, I'm currently trying to decide between the Inspiron 1525 and the Studio 15 http://www.dell.com/content/topics/segtopic.aspx/linux_3x?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs . I'm looking to spend about $800. Due to a $200 coupon I can get them with similar specs at the same price, though the Studio seems to have a much better display. Which computer would you guys go with? I'm having trouble deciding. I'm also afraid of buying now and having something new come out tomorrow, if this is possible I can wait a while before buying.

    Also, if you have better recommendations for my first Linux computer, what would they be?
