Help to improve my Dell inspiron and Linux understanding


Hi mark i typed in as you suggested and it came up with some techno info about my computer…should i take a screenshot and put it here ? thanks


Hi Tony,

Yes the inxi -Fxz gives a print out of your laptop specs. This aids the decision making, thus be able to offer an informed opinion, rather than a guess, based on inadequate information.

Copy and paste your inxi -Fxz print out in the reply box, then look for this </> symbol as it formats and preserves the print out integrity. I have listed my spare laptop, which I keep up to 8 distro’s, to review how the other half live.
