Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition

We haven't had a chance to fully test this product yet, but we've assembled this helpful overview of relevant information on it.

If the big names in operating systems have got you down, Dell has the answer with the XPS 13 Developer Edition, which features a 13.3 inch 1080p display and an Intel core i5 processor, and runs Ubuntu Linux instead of the usually pre-installed Windows 8. In addition, the XPS 13 Developer Edition is equipped with a touchscreen and touchpad gesture support, and beta access to Dell’s Linux-based tools and software.

While it’s likely this version of the XPS 13 is called the Developer Edition because of the issues that require troubleshooting in a Linux environment, the specs are on par with the regular XPS 13, and is a fine option for those looking to roll up their sleeves and get more involved with their operating system.
