XPS 13 developer edition portfolio up 8X in the States, 6 core and more!

October 31, 2019

At the beginning of last month, we announced the roll out of the first configurations of Dell’s latest XPS 13 developer edition.

Today, in honor of Halloween, we are excited to announce that we are increasing the number of configurations in the developer edition portfolio by a factor of eight.  In total, we now offer 18 different configurations of the 9th generation developer edition, 16 of which are available both online and offline.

If you venture offline you also get two bonus systems to choose from, one featuring a 1TB SSD and one that boasts an even beefier 2TB solid stated drive.  These offline offerings can be ordered via chat or phone (877-BUY-DELL).

 

All of these configurations come with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS preloaded and are powered by the Intel 10th Gen Core™ U series processors, over half of which are based on the i7 hexacore processor.

What’s also cool about today’s news is both the Linux and the Windows XPS 13 lines are being rounded out at the same time.  Linux has officially become a first among equals. 😉

Please see the complete list of configs for the US, Canada and Europe below.

Project Sputnik

The original XPS 13 developer edition from 2012

Nearly seven years ago the community-driven Project Sputnik went from skunk works project to official product.  The original “line up” consisted of only one system and one configuration.

The system, which represented the top of the line XPS 13 system came with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS-preloaded, was powered by a 1.6-GHz Intel Core i5-2467M processor and featured 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD.

Fast forward to today and instead of a 1.6GHz i5 processor the top config of the 9th generation XPS 13 developer edition is based on Intel’s i7 six core processor, along with 16GB of RAM and a 2TB drive.  Who knows what specs and features will define the future generations to come of the XPS 13 developer edition.

Stay tuned and find out! 😊
