Dell introduced the fourth generation version of their popular XPS laptop, which has received great reviews from critics and fans of Dell alike. However, unlike some of its counterparts – it will come with far greater configurations than any previous XPS device. Impressively, the device will be loaded with Ubuntu and will start at just $949 – a great price for an impressive system. For this Ubuntu edition, the device will come toting an Intel Core i5 processor, which can be upgraded to the i7 processor. The system comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage – which can be upgraded to 512GB of internal storage.
Whether we’re talking about design specification or physical specification – the XPS 13 is one of the best devices on the market that is slim and fast. It can withstand just about any task, given the fact that it totes 8GB of RAM memory and will power almost any task and since it’s configured to be used as a developers computer – it doesn’t fall short in any category. The announcement was first made at CES 2015 where Dell unveiled the brand new laptop that would be using some of Intel’s newest and best processors on the market. The move was one that was seen as a major accomplishment within the space.
Those who are looking for a Windows version of the Dell XPS 13 it will cost significantly less. It’ll start at $799 and run upward from there, but really in terms of value the Developer Edition is pretty good. However, the upside of the Windows version would be that for the daily user of browser, email, and basic applications – Ubuntu probably isn’t going to be their first choice, or first thought when it comes to a laptop. It’s a solid offering though and really gives users the upside to have a choice when it comes to their laptop. It breaks beyond the traditional options and gives users the ability to buy something that could last them a number of years – given the upgrade in the specification that the Developer Edition brings to the table.
