The Bestest Laptop Computer

… unfortunately comes with absolutely the wurst Linux distro. 😦

Buy the XPS13 and put Mint ArchLinux on it to unleash its full potential.

I didn’t buy a laptop in a damn long time but I guess apart from dirtcheap used ThinkPads, Dell’s XPS series never fails to excite! Rumour has it that Linus himself composes his thousands of lines of code on a Dell XPS13. But his is already some years old while the new ones come with 10th gen Intel i5 and i7 chips. Superduper build quality, various screens and a high quality keyboard making this a really round paket!

The fun starts at 900 USWoolongs. And you are worth the expense, aren’t you?

The Dell XPS 13 developer edition (7390) will be made available to buy in the United States, Canada and throughout Europe during September.

Dell plan to keep the previous Dell XPS 13 developer edition (9380), which it launched in January, on sale alongside the new ‘7390’ model.

Dell XPS 13 (7390) Specs

Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition (7390) Specs include an Intel Core i5-10210U processor (quad-core) or i7-10710U processor (6 cores); Killer AX1650 (2×2) Wi-Fi; 13-inch InfinityEdge display with FHD and UHD resolutions; and up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM.

The updated model will also sport two Thunderbolt 3 ports, according to Dell’s Barton George.

While the first batch of the new XPS 13 developer editions are based around a 10th Generation Intel Core i5-10210U processor, but a swathe of additional models, based on other chips in the 10th Gen Core U series, will be offered starting October.

Dell say the expanded range will include i7 and additional i5 versions.

No word on international pricing for the updated models, but the US version is expected to start from $899.99. Do keep an eye on the XPS 13 pages in the “For Work” and “For Home” sections on the Dell website in your country.

    • Off course but I hardly dare mentioning Namib anymore. Don’t wanna sound like a broken record. Namib would be fine on any generation of the XPS. It’s Arch, speed is guaranteed. 🙂 I’m running it also on a very weak Acer netbook with a Pentium proci. Start up takes a while but once up operation is very smooth.

      And, lol,the X1 Carbon is a bit out of my price range and totally overdone as a starter machine for first time Linux n00bs. 😉
