Whoever buys it will have to install a hard drive (and operating system). I never sell computers with hard drives- basic security point.

What would it be like running ubuntu?

Never tried myself, but I can't imagine why not. I would do a search for any compatibility issues. It's a very stable laptop- that's why I used it for study.

No DVD or CD drive (you can use an external USB one with it).
