Really heartened by project Sputnik!
I've been in the market for a pre-installed Ubuntu laptop for the last couple of months but have been strugglling to find what I'm looking for.
However, moments before purchasing the System 76, I stumbled upon what has become my new 4th choice, namely the Dell XPS 13 Sputnik (the fact that it is shipped with Ububntu, again escalating this to top spot)
So, I'm delaying my purchase until the promised international release next year. Don't let me down Dell - I will be seriously disappointed if this isn't available in Australia soon!!!
Thanks @mohudu ! We're working on it, stay tuned! :)
I'm also in Australia, and also VERY MUCH WANTING the xps 13.!!!!!! :) Currently I'm on an oldish Dell xps M1530, Can't wait til I can get hold of a sputnik in Oz!!!!
Any new when it will be available? In Australia and Europe (where I live)?
tres excitementz , thanks :)
Any time soon now? Can you give a date?
We're getting closer. We will start with EMEA but Australia wont be far behind. Announcements and avaialability coming soon.
Ok, thanks. Can you also post a message here by then? Then we get an email and don't need to check the website of Dell on a regular basis.
Sure, the other thing you can do is subscribe to my blog bartongeorge.net since I make all announcements there
thanks, nice blog
Any news? Waiting to get the FHD version upgrade, for the one I purchased in Nov ;) But need it in Denmark, in order to skip the extra windows license...
Coming to EMEA super duper soon!
I'm checking the customize your system or googling "Dell Developer Edition FHD site:dk" in case you've hidden it really well daily now, so it cannot be soon enough ;)
BTW: Could you ask the web team to support the Rich Text Fields on Ubuntu Firefox. They are as wide as the lines I'm typing!
Speaking of the devil, on my daily browsing routine I found:
*The laptop is now available in the following additional countries: United Kingdom, France, Germany, Sweden, Russia, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Poland, Finland, Austria, Denmark, S. Africa and Israel.
So where on dell.dk is it hiding i wonder ;)
