Five new systems join Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition that come with Ubuntu pre-installed.

Dell seems to be the only major hardware vendor that continues to offer high-end Linux machines.

Barton George, Senior Architect in the office of CTO at Dell, wrote in a blog post, “Today I am excited to announce the next generation of our Ubuntu-based Precision mobile workstation line. Not only have we rev’d [revised] the current line-up but we have also added the Precision 5720 All-in-One.”

The two new devices are the Dell Precision 3520 and Dell Precision 5520 mobile workstations. In addition to these two devices are three more Linux-powered devices that will be launched soon. The Dell Precision 7520 and Dell Precision 7720 mobile workstations will be available in March, and the Dell Precision 5720 all-in-one will be available in April.

All of these systems come with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS pre-loaded and feature seventh generation Intel Core and Intel Xeon processors. Dell already sells a high-end Linux laptop: the Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition.
