dell m3800Most laptops these days are typically powered by the Windows operating system, unless of course you are using a Mac in which you will be running on the OS X platform. However if you’re in the market for something different that isn’t Windows or OS X, then Dell might have something of interest to you.

The company has recently announced their latest laptop in the their Ubuntu lineup in the form of the Dell Precision M3800 Developer Edition, a laptop which Dell is boasting to be “the world’s thinnest and lightest true 15-inch mobile workstation.” We have seen Dell create Developer Edition laptops in the past, and the Precision M3800 is their latest.

What makes the Precision M3800 Developer Edition different from Dell’s other laptops is the fact that it runs on Ubuntu, making it ideal for developers looking for a platform where they can create their software on. In terms of specs, the laptop’s default configuration is a 15.6-inch Full HD display with 8GB of RAM and 500GB of 7200rpm storage.

Alternatively developers/users who need more can upgrade it to 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM, a 1TB SSD, or a 15.6-inch UltraSharp IGZO UHD touchscreen display. The laptop will also come with a Thunderbolt 2 port that will allow for speedy transfer of large files, especially for those who view/edit 4K video. For those interested in getting their hands on the device, you can do so today where it will be priced starting at $1,699.
