Dell Intros Upgraded Ubuntu-Powered XPS 13 Developer Edition Laptop

Dell has this week updated its Linux offering by releasing the new XPS 13 Developer Edition laptop running Ubuntu. Codenamed Sputnik 3, this new client-to-cloud solution comes with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS pre-installed and features a 13.3-inch (1920 x 1080) LED-backlit touch display, an Intel Haswell processor (Core i5-4200U or i7-4500U), 8 GB of RAM, Intel HD 4400 graphics, a 128/256 GB mSATA solid state drive, a spill-resistant backlit chiclet keyboard, an HD webcam, Bluetooth, 802.11ac WiFi, and a 55WHr battery.

The XPS 13 Developer Edition is currently only available in the US (starting at $1,249) but will expand its reach quickly - next week it will go on sale in Canada, and by the end of the month it will also be found in 9 European countries.

man, for that price, they could at least have given us the 4250u. or the higher wattage 4288u. that cpu is in $600 laptops from the same company, which could run linux just as well as this thing.

1080p touchpanel is nice though... not typically found at the $600 price point.
However I agree its not quite the right price.

I have no issue developing on glossy screens, thank you. I don't care for the touchscreen though.
