Looks like the 1420n is gone for some reason. You can buy it with 
Windows hastalaVista though and then install Ubuntu. Just avoid any Dell 
h/w (wireless, bluetooth), go Intel basically. As for graphics I chose 
Intel but I guess Nvidia should also work. And as for built-in webcam 
your guess is as good as mine, I opted to buy without it.
