Dell has provided options for its consumers since way back. They can provide no OS hardwares and may be installed with open-source operation system. Not only their hardwares compatible with Windows, their laptops are designed for Linux OS as well.
The new Sputnik laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS “Precise Pangolin” preinstalled will be a special version of the Dell XPS 13. This gives an ideal platform for developers to work with a “complete client-to-cloud solution.” The Dell XPS 13 with Ubuntu 12.04 preloaded onto it includes Profile tool that can integrate GitHub and the Cloud tools help developers form and administer “microclouds.”
This effort by Dell provides an opportunity to understand and serve the needs of developers. New and learning developers can get into it with the same hardware power but in a simple and easier start. Not only this laptop a reliable hardware, it has a sleek look and style.
