— NEWS —
I had a chance to play with both the Dell XPS 13 and the XPS 15 at CES. Each comes with Windows 8.1 by default. There will also be, as there has been in the past, a special developers edition that comes with Ubuntu. Sources close to Dell said this Linux-powered model will appear in February and will run Ubuntu 14.04
Energous demoed a Linux-based “WattUp” device that uses WiFi-like beam forming technology to wirelessly charge compatible mobile devices at up to 15 feet.
Atom-powered stick comes with Windows for $149 or Linux for $89.
