Dell $499 computer - Might make great LMCE box!

Sell the 19" panel it comes with, buy more storage, done!

Has the AMD 4000 dual core chip, a sleek looking case, and onboard nvidia 6150 graphics, although for $50 more, you can add the 8300gs to it (which might help in driver detection, giving you an easier install).

It should work but when I got one  I ran into enough problems in the internals and limitations in the BIOS and special stuff that I passed on doing anything with it and sent it back. It was quite the bargain from the outlet store. Shame.

So you are saying that buying a standard Kubuntu loaded Dell desktop is incompatible with LinuxMCE?
I'm really confused. I respectfully request guidance on this issue.
