Looks like the 2020 XPS (9300) is now available on the Dell store:
However, RAM configurations are still limited to 16GB and a paltry 256GB disk space.
Separate discussion on this happening on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/Dell/comments/f6ywd8/dell_xps_13_9300_developer_edition_available_on/
It appears to be released now, but there's no 32gb ram version? Should we keep waiting for that one? The whole release process around this laptop has been awkward... first windows laptops appeared, now a few ubuntu ones but not the really powerful ones I read about earlier... and we're at the end of Feb. I'm considering just waiting for the mbp 13 with a functional keyboard now.
I do understand your feeling.
I got the XPSs 13" with Linux, and 15" with Windows. It definitely worth to wait.
This configuration is just amazing, with a full support of Linux. Wow.
Can't wait more! But have to.
I decided to give Dell's online chat a go and the representative said that they expect the 32GB option to be released in the next couple of weeks. So it seems that the option is just delayed a bit, not canned entirely.
is this a joke, dell??
32GB RAM is finally available, but not with Ubuntu!!! only the very weakest configuration is available with ubuntu: laughable 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, i5 CPU... that's like my config 11 years ago... you will not see my money ;-]
Yea, I initially thought that too, @morgwai. It took a lot of hunting around, but you can configure a better system with Ubuntu: https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/dell-laptops-and-notebooks/new-xps-13-9300-developer-edition/sp.... The most performant configuration that allows is,
10th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-1065G7 Processor (8MB Cache, up to 3.9 GHz)
Ubuntu Linux 18.04
16GB 3733MHz LPDDR4x Memory Onboard
2TB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive
which comes to a total of $1,849.99 USD, before tax. Still not the 32GB they promised (beginning to think that was some vaporware), but it is something.
Dell definitely needs to work on their SEO.
yeah, but this thread is *specifically* about 32GB RAM ;-]
I've been having 16GB of RAM on my laptop for 7 years now and unless dell offers me a real upgrade to this, I don't intend to waste my money...
For those curious, below are the two (non-Ubuntu) XPS 13 starting configurations with 32GB, on offer as of yesterday.
