Despite the fact that these laptops serve a small demand, Dell continues to offer them in South Africa. “You can order today,” he said. Buchanan said that many computer users still consider Linux as a technical operating system, however, and perhaps don’t understand it.
Linux performs a range of tasks better than Windows, though, including the package management features it offers.
So if you are a Linux user in South Africa choose Dell and don't pay for an OS you won't be using.

Dell’s people strategy is designed to attract the worldʼs greatest talent and deliver breakthrough performance for our customers, our business and our team members. Our focus is to ensure that Dell is a compelling destination where team members feel valued, engaged and inspired to do their best work.
Learn More About Diversity at Dell
At Dell, we believe that everyone has unique strengths and skills to contribute in the workplace. We strive to create an environment that is inclusive and accessible for all. As neurodiversity is a broad category, we decided to first focus on an effort for those on the autism spectrum, rethinking the traditional interview process and removing barriers that may limit an individual from fully showcasing their true abilities and potential.
The Dell Autism Hiring Program was launched with the intent to provide career readiness training and possible full time career opportunities for individuals on the autism spectrum.
I have been working as a Software Quality Engineer at Dell since September, and my work has been enjoyable and fulfilling. The people I work with every day are friendly and helpful, and I am learning new ways to contribute to my team every day. I’m really thankful for getting the opportunity to prove myself capable for this job, and I feel confident that I have an exciting future here at Dell Technologies! A.J., former intern current Dell employee
Redesigning the Interview Process
The Autism Hiring Program is an opportunity to rethink the traditional interview process. Our process removes barriers that may limit an individual to fully showcase their true capabilities and potential.
Summer internships Paid summer internships available in the following job categories: Our Partners will screen for the skills and qualifications necessary in the identified open roles. Eligible candidates will be pre-screened to determine their interest, skill and experience for the opportunity.

We spent almost an hour talking about his journey in learning Python. By the end of the initial conversation, my head was spinning with ideas of how to put his incredible skill set to use on my team. When CJ first joined my team, he hit the ground running and quickly acclimated to the various development environments we have to work with. My work with CJ has been one of the most fulfilling professional and personal experiences of my entire career. I am eternally grateful for this program, and I highly encourage anyone interested in this program to reach out for more information. Dan, CJʼs Manager As co-chair for the True Ability Employee Resource Group, I am personally thrilled and extremely optimistic about the potential for our neurodiversity program. I have great confidence that this talent pipeline will help us differentiate and win in the marketplace because of the new ideas and diverse perspectives that will foster innovation and problem solving. We are excited to see Dell broaden our talent initiatives to include this program focused on qualified individuals who are neurodiverse. It aligns with our efforts to ensure that we are tapping multiple talent pipelines to broaden our overall inclusion with our incoming hires. This program is also central to our values of being an inclusive organization that appreciates diversity and wins together. With our inspired and willing leaders and teams, this is going to be a great success.

Last January the Dell XPS 13 developer edition (9370) made its debut. Today we’re excited to announce that one year later its successor, the XPS 13 developer edition (9380), is now available in the US, Canada and Europe. (Note: both the 9370 and 9380 will coexist for a period of time.)
The 9380 represents the eighth generation of Dell’s Ubuntu-based XPS 13 developer edition series. The first generation of the developer edition debuted over six years ago and it, along with the Ubuntu-based Precision mobile workstations that launched in 2015, make up Project Sputnik. In case you’re not familiar with it, Project Sputnik is Dell’s skunkworks initiative driven by input from the developer community (see the timeline at the end of the post for the complete XPS 13 developer edition progression).
Dell XPS 13 developer edition (9380) — System highlights
Although there are many great features and specs that characterize the latest developer edition (see below), the one that will likely bring the most joy is the new placement of the webcam. In the 9370 the camera is located directly below the screen. In the new 9380 the camera has been moved to the top, providing a much more flattering view of the user while still maintaining the system’s sleek, compact design.
Not only that but the 8^th generation developer edition supports Suspend-to-idle natively which allows the system to resume much more quickly from sleep.
\* Intel 8^th generation i3, i5 and i7 processors (Intel Whiskey Lake U, 15W, non-vPro) \* Ubuntu 18.04 LTS preloaded \* InfinityEdge display with top camera placement \* Easier to open \* FHD and UHD resolution support \* Up to 16GB of LPDDR3 memory at 2133MHz \* 1 x NVMe slot for 2230-128GB / 2280 up to 2TB \* Thunderbolt 3 (x2) with USB3.1 Gen2 + type-C x1 with USB3.1 Gen2 speed \* Improved Thunderbolt runtime power management \* Killer^® 1435 802.11ac [2×2] + Bluetooth 4.2
The United States and Canada
In the US and Canada there are four base configs that can be configured in a multitude of ways, yielding 22 configurations. These base configs are:
\* i7 QC|8GB|256GB|FHD T \* i7 QC|8GB|256GB|UHD T \* i7 QC|16GB|512GB|UHD T \* i7 QC|16GB|256GB|UHD T
(Note: unlike Europe, in the United States and Canada the developer edition can only be purchased in the “For Work” section.)
Beating the US and Canada to the punch, on January 9^th the first configurations of the new XPS 13 developer edition became available in Europe. At the end of last week two more joined to complete the lineup:
\* i7 QC|16GB|512GB|UHD T \* i7 QC|16GB|1TB|UHD T \* i7 QC|8GB|256GB|FHD NT \* i7 QC|16GB|512GB|FHD NT
The above configurations are available in both the “For Home” and “For Work” sections on Dell.com and are available online in the following countries:
\* Austria \* Belgium (Dutch and French) \* Switzerland (German and French) \* Germany \* Denmark \* Spain \* France \* Ireland \* Italy \* The Netherlands \* Norway \* Sweden \* The United Kingdom <- The developer editions will be added to shortly to the 9380 product page. Until then, the systems can be purchased via chat on the product page or by calling the number that pops up.
Being able to announce the next generation of the XPS 13 developer edition is a great way to begin the year. Watch this space to see what is next on the agenda for 2019.
XPS 13 developer edition timeline
\* 1st gen Dell XPS 13 developer edition in the US — November 29, 2012
\* 4th gen Dell XPS 13 developer edition in US and Europe — April 9, 2015
\* 7th gen XPS 13 developer edition available – January 4, 2018
