As previously promised, Dell has just added to the portfolio the XPS 13 laptop loaded with Ubuntu Linux. These are all variants of the Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition, which starts at $949 USD and targets power users. While the entry-level XPS 13 Developer Edition has a Full HD matte display, the high-end variant has a QHD+ infinity touch screen.

These are the prices and the specs of the main configurations available:

  • $949 USD  - Intel Core i5-5200U, 13.3-inch Full HD, 8 GB/128 GB SSD
  • $1,349 USD - Intel Core i5-5200U, 13.3-inch QHD+ touch, 8 GB/256 GB SSD
  • $1,549 USD - Intel Core i7-5500U, 13.3-inch QHD+ touch, 8 GB/256 GB SSD
  • $1,849 USD - Intel Core i7-5500U, 13.3-inch QHD+ touch, 8 GB/512 GB SSD

All these machines can be customized to better match the user's needs and come loaded with Ubuntu Linux 14.04 SP1. Each weighs 2.8 pounds and is covered by one-year ProSupport with Next Business Day onsite service. While storage can be easily changed/upgraded as needed, the XPS 13 Developer Edition only has 8 GB RAM and more cannot be added since the memory is soldered to the mainboard.

Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition can be customized and ordered directly from Dell.com.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
