Hi Barton,


We know you are working hard! Can you provide an inexact date? 🙂

(one week, two weeks, one month, two months??)

Thanks 🙂

RE: Update on XPS 13/15 2016 Developer Edition availability

Hello to everyone, I have been following this thread (which had a different name at an earlier point) since December 2015. Until now silent, now I want to show my "desperation" for the xps Dev edition :D I hope to get a unit by April, could there be made a comment on how realistically my hopes are? Realitistic? Unrealistic? Very realistic? Not realistic? If I could get an answers with the given options, I would be able to handle my desperation a bit better :D Many greeting to everyone, especially to the hardworking project managers 😉

Is the Euro release actually holding up the rollout to the rest of the world? How is the, say, US release contingent upon the Euro release?

I sure hope your reply in the other thread, "should be available in the next two months," isn't realistic. 🙂

Europe, Canada and the US launches are all separate and all being worked.  Id rather be conservative in my guesstimates rather than being aggressive and then missing them 🙂

thanks for all the passion 🙂

Yep, loads of passion. And impatience. We're like 9-year-olds on Christmas Eve.

I'm choosing to read your "less than two months" comment in the other thread like "Yes, the XPS 13 DE will cost less than $150,000." Accurate, though cagey. 😉

There is a fine line between building expectation and building frustration.

Being so coy makes it feel like waiting for Godot.

I can only give encouragement (& urge a little patience) to everybody.  I still love my 2014 XPS 13 (9333).  It worked great out of the box (it had Ubuntu 12.04 preinstalled).  I have since upgraded to Ubuntu 15.10 (although with some pain....) and it now works great with the D3100 dock and extra monitors.

I am sure the new 15" model will be even better (and I'm sure I'll need an upgrade at some point!).

Keep up the great work!

Cheers,

Alan

Romain and Axel,

Let me check with our folks in Europe.  My understanding is that the 5510 w/Ubuntu should be available in France.

Thanks for the heads up and stay tuned!

Thanks a lot for your hard work Barton !

Is there anything else we can do, anybody we can get in touch with, to make 5510 w ubuntu happen in Europe ?

Do you know what will be the differences between the regular precision 5510 and the dev edition ? (price? specs?, something else?)

Price, Ubuntu 14.04, Type C driver functionality, official support (via ProSupport).


When you say 'type C driver functionality', I assume that you will supply drivers for that to linux. Am I wrong? What then would be the difference between a regular XPS and installing linux on it, and the DE XPS ?
