I think it's a great idea, well minus Unity. Linux generally runs lighter than Windows and this is an already fast notebook with an SSD and good amount of RAM and is light and portable.

No harm in offering it......although most developers I know "roll their own" distros...so they're probably strip and reload the laptop with their own customized flavor.
