Dell Launches New XPS 13 with Linux at a price higher than the version with Windows
There are few things in life can be understood as the theory of relativity or the reason for the immortality of the crab. Today, Dell gives us another of those eternal questions, the notebook launched its xps 13 Developer Edition, part of the sputnik project promoted by the company to sell computers with Linux-based operating system from the factory, not Microsoft Windows.
If we look at the data, everything is normal, with a few settings to the Windows version of the model, premiering Intel Core i5 or i7 third generation solid state drive (SSD) 256GB and 8GB of RAM, between other features. The laptop, which comes with ubuntu 12.04 LTS and all drivers or drivers optimized from the factory, in physical terms is equal to the Windows version, and the only difference is that installing Ubuntu comes free, while Microsoft charges for licenses to Dell .
Then you think: “the model with Ubuntu should be cheaper”. Well no. In fact, worth USD $ 50 more than the exact same laptop with Windows, running at $ 1,550.
Why? Parachuting We sent our special on Dell’s headquarters, to see if we took an answer to someone. For now, all are hiding to give statements.
