Dell Launches Experimental Developer Laptop

  • By Developer.com Staff

Dell has unveiled a new "experimental" laptop aimed at developers. Called Project Sputnik, it's a Dell XPS13 laptop running Ubuntu Linux, and it comes with a set of drivers, patches and utilities aimed at developers' needs.

Coming soon to Project Sputnik will be a feature that allows downloads of developer "profiles" from GitHub. These profiles will include everything users need to set up their own development stacks. The first three profiles will be for Android, Ruby and JavaScript development. Redmonk analyst Stephen O’Grady, who consulted with Dell on this project, explained, “If I’m new to PHP or Java or Android, I won’t have to figure out what a capable stack looks like. I can use a cookbook based on others who’ve done it before.”
