Debian and Ubuntu are close enough in functionality that most of the ubuntu refrerences should apply. With that being said, I found a post at http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/b/techcenter/archive/2013/11/26/follow-up-ubuntu-on-the-precision-m3800.aspx which is stating that the only two problems were touchscreen drivers and the sd-card drivers. You should be able to implement any fixes that that poster finds.
