Dell today announced that they will be releasing ‘Dell XPS 13 Developer edition’ by the beginning of September 2019. This laptop will soon become available in the UK, US, Canada, and European Markets as per Dell. The specifications will be as below.

I love this laptop as it is preloaded with Ubuntu 18.04(LTS-Long Term Support), so you don’t have to format it and install Ubuntu as I normally do:-). And hardware-wise the specifications look brilliant as it has the latest 10th Generation Intell core i5(Quad-core) and i7 (hexacore) processors and a beautiful infinity edge display. Combined with the low power hungry the LPDDR3 RAM (Low-Power Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory or Mobile DDR), you can expect a very good battery life as well. The Bluetooth 5.0 version supports dual audio and twice as much faster speed than that of Bluetooth 4.2. We are not quite sure about the price yet, so keep looking at the Dell official website for updates. One thing to note is that if you are in the US / Canada, you should look in the “For Work” Section instead of “For Home” section. This one will surpass the features of previous laptops(source) from Dell.
If you are looking for a powerful laptop for Ubuntu, I would definitely suggest for you to wait for this laptop from Dell. Which is your favorite distro for a laptop? And which laptop do you use? Please let me know in the comments.
