I am writing this on an e6330, 16GB ddr3 1333 ram, 256Gb ssd, upgrade to dual band AC WLAN. Still in Dell warranty.

OS is now Ubuntu 15.10, and it has been periodically upgraded.

Everything works - save dealing with flash, which is not a compatibility problem to the unit. Using chrome as a browser or tweaking chromium is the workaround.

All the physical parts are compatible. I listen to XM/Sirius on it directly from its speakers, or through headphones, or with a remote BT speaker. When my wife and I travel, we may watch Netflix or such and use the remote BT speaker.

Cheese webcam gives me good control over the webcam.

As y'all know, these are solid, if heavy, units. That trade-off is one I will take every time. They lack the dedicated graphics of a gaming machine, but that is not what I use it for. It is an extraordinary work and, connected to fast internet, entertainment machine.

I run Oracle VirtualBox on it, but use it less and less often. Works seamlessly.

FWIW, I favor SUSE on biz desktops. But I find Ubuntu and its variants most convenient on Dell laptops.


I run the variant called “Elementary” on my twin 7 YO granddaughters' laptops because it is transparent for them to use, sort of like a Mac could be, if it were tuition free, so to speak.


FWIW, if you have a latitude e6330, do yourself a favor and run Ubuntu. It's fast, solid, and complete.
