Hardware, Embedded Systems El Reg reviews the Dell Inspiron 6400, and concludes: "With a base price - for the T7200 Core 2 Duo - of GPB 789 inc. VAT and shipping, the Inspiron 6400 is an excellent and affordable route into the Core 2 Duo world. It has all the credentials to be a dependable multimedia companion with its great screen, comprehensive connectivity and decent processing power. But be aware it's neither exciting to look at nor to game on."

//Is it possble that OSnews is slowly becoming a hardware site?//

Good question.

What I want to know (from OSNews especially, and which is not clear from the original article) is:

(1) does it run Linux? If not fully, then what hardware does not work and what are the prospects of getting that fixed?, and

(2) can I buy it without Windows? Alternatively if not, will Dell provide a refund for unused Windows OS software?

"Jag håller med"

Also here in Sweden the macbook pro is just 4% more expensive than a comparable speced Dell 6400/E1505... Hard choice...

Taking into account all the mobile device news that's a good question.
