Ubuntu Linux-powered machines that particular spectacular are few and much between, however, Dell has launched two of probably the most highly efficient ultraportable workstations with an entirely different working system. After launching the world’s thinnest and lightest 15-inch notebook powered by Ubuntu, the Precision 5520 mobile workstation, the Dell has now launched two new models to expand its portfolio of Linux-based laptops. Dell dubs them as the world’s most powerful 15-inch mobile workstations preloaded with the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system. Dubbed as Dell Precision 7520 and Dell Precision 7720, the models have been now made available for purchase.
It’s not the only Linux laptop Dell offers. Barton George, senior principal engineer at Dell’s Office of the CTO, announced “the next generation of our Ubuntu-based Precision mobile workstation line.” All of these systems boast Ubuntu 16.04 long-term support (LTS), 7th generation Intel Core or Intel Xeon processors, andThunderbolt 3, AKA 40 Gigabit per second (Gbps) USB-C, ports and with all the powerful hardware underneath them, you cannot expect them to, 1080p display or a 4K one and the laptop can be configured to run with 64GB of DDR4 ECC memory and 3TB of storage available in both Touch and Non-Touch variants. Thunderbolt 3 support, as well as Nvidia Quadro M1200 or M2200 graphics cards. It will surely meet the needs of many creative professionals.
Although you can also set up Windows 10 on these machines if you want due to available drivers, these workstations are more catered in the direction of these which might be inclined to run Ubuntu Linux. The Dell Precision 7520 and Precision 7720 models are now available for purchase, priced at $1,250 and $1,579 that price will rise to quite a mouthful. This is just over $100 cheaper than the same model with Windows 10 Pro.
