We have been getting a ton of questions around the 4th generation Sputnik (XPS13 laptop, developer edition) and when it will be available. As you may have seen, last week at Sundance we broke the news of our brand new Dell Precision M3800, developer edition pre-loaded with Ubuntu.
The XPS 13 isn’t far behind. We’re getting close and will have more to share soon but ultimately are spending time making sure everything works to provide the best customer experience possible. A word of caution, if you purchase the Windows version of the new XPS 13 and try to load Ubuntu on it you will run into a few issues that we are currently addressing.
Please realize this DOES NOT AFFECT the Windows version of the XPS 13 laptop that recently launched.
Stay tuned for more updates soon.
