Dell's Project Sputnik initiative started four years ago with a $40K internal innovation fund and the idea of creating a Linux-driven laptop for developers. Now, the XPS 13 Developer Edition Ubuntu laptop reaches its fifth generation and the revenue generated by this program measures in millions.

This new laptop for developers comes preloaded with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and is "augmented with the necessary hardware drivers, tools and utilities." The company starts with three Intel Core i7-powered configurations while the i5 option is also in the cards. These are the new XPS 13 Developer Edition setup:

  • Intel Core i7, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, QHD touchscreen, Intel 8260 Dual Band wireless
  • Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD, QHD touchscreen, Intel 8260 Dual Band wireless
  • Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, QHD touchscreen, Intel 8260 Dual Band wireless

In addition to the above, Dell also updated its lineup of Precision mobile workstations, which now feature high-end specs including NVIDIA QUADRO graphics, 4K InfinityEdge display, Intel Xeon processors, and more.

All the new Dell Linux laptops can be configured and purchased directly from Dell.

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.
