Systems Developed by and for Developers

Developer Edition:
Dell™ XPS™ 13 laptop and Dell™ Precision™ M3800 mobile workstation

Create your next web or mobile app on the Dell™ XPS™ 13 developer edition or the developer edition of the Dell Precision M3800 mobile workstation. Under the umbrella "Project Sputnik", these systems began as an open-ended exploratory project to identify what you — developers — demand in an ideal laptop. With your input, Project Sputnik became an official product. And it keeps getting better.

In addition to our 4th generation Dell XPS 13 developer edition, based on your input, the line has expanded to include the beefy Dell Precision M3800 mobile workstation. Both systems are augmented with the necessary hardware drivers and pre-loaded with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Ubuntu is an open-source operating system built for linux enthusiasts.

Dell offers the Ubuntu OS on select products as an alternative to Windows or Chrome.
You might prefer Ubuntu if:

* You are comfortable with open-source software.
* You want to customize your operating system.
* You want to save money by using one of the most popular alternative operating systems in the 
   market  and be free from licensing fees.
* You are web or mobile developer who prefers not to work with a proprietary operating system

Features & Design

Ubuntu can have a low total cost of ownership over the life of your computer and there are thousands of free applications available through the Ubuntu Software Center. *An office productivity suite, LibreOffice, also comes bundled with Ubuntu and is compatible with Microsoft Office Suite. Ubuntu is safe and secure. With a trusted application software repository, data encryption and built-in protection from malware and viruses, you can be protected. Ubuntu LTS (Long Term Release) brings 5 years of free security and maintenance updates.

* Please note that not all applications and software programs available for Windows and iOS are available on Ubuntu. Before buying, determine if the software you need is available on Ubuntu.
