My old Dell Inspiron 9300

A long time a ago, I bought a Dell Inspiron 9300 with a 1920×1200 screen. We are only just getting back to this sort of resolution being available again in 2015.

Later, this went to my dad. Now, the CPU/GPU is not doing it for him in Photoshop anymore, so I guess my 6 year old is the winner!

For various reasons, we have an Ubuntu installation here (15.10). As usual, stuff could be better:

  • Touch pad only is recognised as a mouse. No tap to click, let alone gestures. Kernel issue apparently.
  • Close the lid, suspend/hibernate sort of works. It goes off, but never comes back.
  • Weird UI
  • Weird UI

I love Linux and have been a keen user since the mid 90’s. Just want me to be the target market without putting in any effort or cash to make that happen.

I guess that makes me the “average” user, right?
