The nearly bezel-less Dell XPS 13 is one of our highest rated laptops, thanks namely to its compact size, attractive design and fast performance. But if Windows just isn't your preferred operating system, now there's another option to choose from: Linux. As part of its commitment to the platform, which took off with the introduction of Project Sputnik, Dell's announced a Ubuntu-based developer edition of its sleek 13-inch laptop. Naturally, you'll have a myriad of configurations to choose from, with prices ranging from $949 all the way to $1,849, depending on how specced out you want your Linux machine to be.

In a blog post, Dell says that since the launch of the XPS 13 back in January, the idea was to launch a developer-friendly version, but it wanted to make sure it could offer the best possible product to people who bought one. "There were issues with the touchpad and a repeating keystroke that took longer to address than we, and others, would have liked," said the company. Have you been holding out for this? Then have at it.

When the new XPS 13 launched earlier this year, the logical question was would there be a developer edition of it, as well? That answer was yes, but it took out teams some time to work through a few things to ensure that it would be the best possible experience for those who purchased it. There were issues with the touchpad and a repeating keystroke that took longer to address than we, and others, would have liked, and we thank everyone for their patience and assistance – especially those who contribute to our Project Sputnik forum.
