I am planning on buying a dell XPS 13 or XPS 14.. but really confused in choosing one..
- Will be installing Ubuntu along side windows (dual boot)
- Main purpose - web & mobile app development
- It seems XPS 13 ( only pre-installed Ubuntu - project sputnik) is Ubuntu certified and XPS 14 is not.
Which one, out of the 2 laptops has better Ubuntu compatibility and most apt for web development?
Either will run Ubuntu just fine. The 13 looks like it comes with an SSD so it would load faster. Both have options for I5 or I7 processors so it depends on how much you want to spend. It's best to install windows first and then Ubuntu. Ubuntu does a better job managing the dual boot situation.
If the prices are similar, right now I'd go with the 14. If you can afford it get upgraded graphics. You can add a larger SSD later and be better off. However, if you're willing to wait for the IPS it might be worth it.
