I can appreciate the fact that the hardware is nice. but my brother has one...and its giving him headaches. (LITERALLY!) It seems Dell has some kind of "adaptive brightness' feature in the FHD model (its an XPS 13 9343 I believe!) and when he's in an IDE/text editor with a dark theme?...the screen DARKENS, then when/if he has to hit Google for something it gets ridiculously bright! he's been complaining of headaches ever since he got the darn thing....but here's the kick in the pants THERE IS NO DISCERNIBLE WAY TO SHUT THIS SO-CALLED "FEATURE" OFF!!.....he's scoured the web, and there IS a BIOS update/patch that's supposed to work...but guess what?...its only for CERTAIN models of XPS 13's!....so he spent upwards of $1500...for headaches?...and its not like this is something new...his XPS is from late 2015....we're in 2018!...and STILL the Dell devs have no "fix" for this?....i wonder if they have enough money to cover the amount of lawsuits they'll get hit with for people damaging their EYES using their device?...

* Sorry for the rant!...too much coffee and not enough sleep...

Dell just announced an updated (new) XPS 13 but the older (9360) series are still available- for a time?

I've got two of the XPS13 9360:  i3, 4gb / 128ssd with Win10 preloaded and  i5 8gb 245ssd with Ubuntu preloaded.  I run/have run Linux on both.  I even tried the previous gen XPS13 developer model with the proprietary WiFi and Ubuntu preload but returned it because of the enormous hassle with the (previous) wifi.

The XPS13 is a great machine for running Linux.  I've run Debian and Debian based distros, CentOS, Solus and Fedora on mine.  All the hardware works "out of the box" with the notable exception of Debian which require non-free drivers for the "Killer" brand Wifi.  I just use the "unofficial" Debian non-free iso images to install.

All versions of Fedora; 24, 25, 26 and 27, that I've tried work wonderfully on the XPS13.  I would, however, consider getting one with Win10 if you catch one on sale or at a discount (i've never seen the "Developer/Linux" models discounted).  You can do a Clonzilla image of the Win10 preload, then blow it away and install Linux.

One really nice thing about Dell's latest machines, XPS, OptiPlex, Latitude, etc., is that you can update the BIOS from the BIOS boot prompt.  There's no need to boot into an OS to update the BIOS, just download the BIOS update file (an .exe) to a FAT flash drive and the BIOS has it's own, built in, update engine.

HTH,

Sean

Hi there,

I wonder if device drivers available for this model.
