Sorry for posting a comment on an older article. I'm thinking about purchasing a Vostro 3400 and was wondering if you tried the latest 10.10 release of Ubuntu or any other Linux distro on this machine? I'm concerned that I would have to do a little extra to get the wireless card working.

Sorry for late reply... Ubuntu 10.10 works fine. No difference with 10.04, except maybe improved graphic performance. You won't have any problem :)
Dell launch Vastro series, It is better to other one of Dell series. I have to great experience to use Dell Vostro 3400.
