Dell will be offering Ubuntu 14.04 on its new 2-in-1 hybrid notebooks.

Dell is to offer Ubuntu on its latest batch of ’2-in-1′ Inspiron laptops, marking the first time the OS has been sold on a mainstream hybrid device. 

The 11-inch Dell Inspiron 11 3000 and 13-inch 7000 notebooks were unveiled at Computex last Monday. Both models feature a rotating display that can be folded backwards to form ‘tablet, easel, tent and laptop’ modes, similar to Lenovo’s Yoga line of Windows 8 and Chrome OS devices.

Although Dell offers the devices with Windows 8.1 by default customers can opt to replace it with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Desktop. Dell say the Ubuntu option will be available worldwide starting in September.

    This article is incorrect, by the way. Read the comments. Dell never planned to offer Ubuntu on these computers.

      Thanks for letting us know. I see you also posted on our source’s web site. Here’s hoping you’re wrong, although I too am having trouble verifying it at this time. Will keep an eye on it since it’s this month that they’re reportedly going to be released. I’ll also check with our friends at Canonical.
      Cheers,
      Robbie
