[LINK] Dell's Linux ultrabook becomes more enticing

Dell’s XPS 13 Developer Edition, formerly an interesting but not particularly tempting Ubuntu 12.04-powered Ultrabook, is now a much more reasonable proposition.

Ars reports that the D™XPS™13LDE will now come with a 1920×1080 flat panel, which may well be an IPS display (it’s not quite at HiDPI/retina levels, but it’s slowly getting there: I hope it won’t be too long before Apple’s monopoly on HiDPI PCs is broken.) Availability has also been announced for Europe (including the UK), which means there’ll be a substantial increase in the number of people who’ll be able to buy one.

If I didn’t already have a notebook (MacBook Pro 13) which I was very happy with, I’d be giving the D™XPS™13LDE a serious look.
