The new Dell XPS 13 with Ubuntu is more expensive than Windows

The new Dell XPS 13 with Ubuntu is more expensive than Windows

Last July the U.S. giant of computers, Dell promised that it was developing a laptop that hit the market with Linux operating system, Ubuntu distribution exactly. Well today has fulfilled that promise by announcing the new version of its powerful Dell XPS 13 with Ubuntu, ideal for developers and open source enthusiasts.

Or at least, it seems the idea right? Because what a surprise given us the manufacturer to announce that the price of this version of the XPS 13 is $ 1,549, ie, $ 50 more than the original version with the Windows operating system. Rather than taking into account the concept and philosophy of free software is rather ironic, though of course, this will have their reasons.

The team as I mentioned at the beginning of the note, is designed for developers, since even incorporates some tools already preloaded, and the XPS 13 also falls short on technical performance, as it includes all to be cataloged as an end laptop high.

It features an Intel Core i5 or i7 art accompanied by 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage thanks to a solid disk (SSD). As for graphics if something falls short, to have an integrated Intel HD 4000 card.

Its screen is 13.3 inches and resolution 1.366×768 pixels. The new XPS 13 with Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangoline now available for sale at authorized agents or directly at the Dell website .
