I own a LC2210D

coincidence - I own one of these. I bought pre-configured with Debian/Sarge. I didn't know that they sold with Ubuntu as well (may be a new thing).

Anyway, I would second this review. The hardware is solid, and all core features work. Suspend-to-disk works but Suspend-to-ram doesn't. In any case, suspend-to-disk is fast enough for me, and that is what I like anyway.

Multimedia features work fine on mine.

Actually, the best thing (from my perspective anyway) is that I was able to get LinuxCertified's help in configuring Wireless in couple of different situations on Linux. I wouldn't have been able to do it myself, and certainly wouldn't have been able to call Dell, if I bought my laptop from them.
