Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition now available with Ubuntu Linux and Intel Kaby Lake CPU
When you want a laptop running Ubuntu, you can always purchase a Windows machine and replace the operating system. Why bother with that hassle, though? Instead, it is smart to buy a machine pre-loaded with a Linux-based operating from a company like System76.
While System76 sells brilliant Ubuntu-powered laptops and desktops, it is not the only game in town. Actually, believe it or not, Dell has long been a proponent of Linux, even before 'Project Sputnik'. Its Ubuntu-powered XPS 13 Developer Edition laptops have been quite popular, and for good reason -- they are built well and are very beautiful. Today, Dell announces a refresh with 7th-gen Intel Kaby Lake processors. The 13-inch laptop even gets a new color option -- rose gold.
"As you may remember, these systems began life four years ago as Project Sputnik, an open-ended exploratory project. From the very beginning, the effort was designed to solicit and incorporate input from the developer community as to what they wanted in a laptop", says Barton George, Senior Principal Engineer, Dell.
