Dell has just announced a Linux-powered version of its very popular XPS 13 laptop that will be running Ubuntu Linux. Dell is calling this their “Developer Edition” and it gives consumers more of a choice when selecting the Dell XPS 13. Prices will range from $949 all the way up to $1849 depending on how powerful you want your machine to be.
Dell has said since the launch of the XPS 13 back in January they had the idea to have a developer-friendly version, but they wanted to make sure they could offer the best possible product out there. “There were issues with the touchpad and a repeating keystroke that took longer to address than we, and others, would have liked,” said Dell.
