Update on XPS 13/15 2016 Developer Edition availability

Any news on the availability for any of the new XPS machines in a Developer Edition?

And do you know exactly what specifications will be used? I.e. 13? 15? Ram/screen/etc.?

Thanks, Phil.

Will it be 13 or 15? And will it be available in EU in the next 10 days? I need to get new laptop for work, and i don't want to buy new MacBook.

Thanks for the response. Could you be more specific? And do you have any concrete dates?

Hi George,

Thanks for the update, can't wait to get my hand on the new edition !

Do you know if there's any chance you'll do the i7 / 16GB build with the full HD display ? I got no use for QHD and would rather get a longer battery life. 

Best regards,

Romain

If you need any help to speed up the process just ask. :)

Alas, we have to work within the constraints of our product lifecycle process, so even though our Ubuntu image is ready to load onto systems in our factories, it takes us some time to make the XPS 13 Developer Edition available for sale.
