Ars Technica provides detailed review of Dell XPS 13 developer edition


If you’re thinking about getting a Dell XPS 13 developer edition you might want to check out the comprehensive review published by Ars Technica this weekend:

It just works: Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition Linux Ultrabook review — Dell’s substantial investment in making a functional Linux Ultrabook pays off.”

The result is a perfectly functional Ultrabook with a few extra tools—that “Developer Edition” moniker isn’t just for show, and Dell has added some devops spices into the mix with this laptop that should quicken any developer’s heartbeat.

    Hi Barton,

    Will it be possible to download only the Sputnik OS (with the cloud laucher and profile tool) so I will be able to install it on any computer ?

    Thanks for your answer
