Don't expect Windows 8 with the lame 'Metro' interface to boost PC sales. The Metro interface will be the dealbreaker for new PC sales. I sure hope Dell is stocking up on Windows 7 licenses. Also, it sure is a good thing Dell offers Ubuntu Linux as an alternative to Windows. I'm using a Vostro 1014 laptop that shipped with Ubuntu Linux right now. Works great and cost less then $350 including shipping. I upgraded it myself to a budget Ultrabook. I upgraded the memory to 8gb, installed a 64gb SSD and upgraded the processor from a Celeron to a Core 2 Duo. Then I upgraded Ubuntu Linux to Linux Mint Maya. Now my budget Ultrabook is complete and costs half what most regular ultrabooks go for.
