Dell Launches World’s Most Powerful 15" and 17" Laptops Powered by Ubuntu Linux
After announcing earlier this year the release of the Dell Precision 5520 mobile workstation as the world’s thinnest and lightest 15” notebook powered by Ubuntu, Dell launches two new models for fans of the Linux-based operating system.
Originally scheduled to arrive during the month of March 2017, the Dell Precision 7520 and Dell Precision 7720 models are finally available for purchase, and Dell dubs them as the world’s most powerful 15-inch mobile workstations preloaded with the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system.
Powered by 7th generation Intel Core i5/i7 or Intel Xeon E3 1505M/1535M CPUs, the Dell Precision 7520 mobile workstation comes with a 15.6” PremierColor display, allowing users to choose between FHD (Full HD) (1920x1080), UltraSharp FHD (Full HD) (1920x1080) available in both Touch and Non-Touch variants, or UltraSharp UHD 4K (Ultra HD) (3840x2160) options.
Additionally, the laptop can be shipped with up to 64GB of DDR4 ECC SDRAM memory and 3TB of storage, Thunderbolt 3 support, as well as Nvidia Quadro M1200 or M2200 graphics cards. The Dell Precision 7520 model is available worldwide and it can be purchased right now from Dell's online shop. Price starts from $1,247.50 USD (€1168).
