Dell Kickstarts 2018 with a Brand New Linux Laptop

Dell is one of the only major PC vendors that sells Linux preloaded systems. The company has announced a brand new laptop from the XPS 13 family that runs Ubuntu Linux. The 7th generation XPS 13 Developer Edition (9370) is powered by Intel's 8th generation Quad Core processor and features a brand new chassis and a new display.

These machines are a result of Project Sputnik, which started back in 2012 and celebrated its 5th anniversary last year.

Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition features 8th Generation Intel Quad Core, i5 (US and Canada only), and i7 versions. It comes with three different configurations for memory – 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB Dual Channel SDRAM. Users can get up to 1TB of storage. The system also comes with a choice of the UltraSharp 4K Ultra HD (3840×2160) InfinityEdge touch display or the FHD (1920 x 1080) InfinityEdge display. It comes with a USB Type C port for transfer and two Thunderbolt 3 ports with PowerShare, DC-In, and DisplayPort. It also has a built in SD card reader.
