Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook


Distinguished Member
Dell's ultrabook, the XPS 13, seems to be causing quite a stir out in Vegas with its 13.3-inch edge-to-edge screen and all-day battery life. Starting at 1.36 kgs., and less than six millimetres at its thinnest point, the XPS 13 looks to combine performance with design and the latest Intel technology, such as Rapid Start and Smart Connection.


The latest and most mobile laptop in Dell's portfolio, the XPS 13 is part of Dell's high-end XPS brand, which is now 20 percent of Dell's total consumer laptop business.

The XPS 13 delivers second-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, 128GB and 256GB solid state hard drive options, Intel HD 3000 graphics and a bright high definition WLED 300-nit display.

"The XPS 13 is the culmination of an extensive design and development process focused on creating the best Ultrabook on the planet," said Jeff Clarke, vice chairman, Global Operations and End User Computing. "It is specifically engineered to help both our consumer and commercial customers be more productive and connected in every way possible. From the edge-to-edge frameless display that packs more screen into a compact body, to the innovative carbon fibre base that is lightweight and cool to the touch, the XPS 13 exemplifies our commitment to offering industry-leading mobile solutions that deliver durability and performance without compromise."
Lead with Style and Never Miss a Moment

"The XPS 13 represents the most balanced of the Ultrabook class of notebooks to hit the market so far", said Rob Enderle, Analyst for the Enderle Group. "Ultrabooks started by forcing people to make a choice between beauty and practicality and Dell took the time to make sure their offering would not only be very attractive, but address the critical needs of business and education buyers as well. Perhaps the best way to describe the XPS 13 is 'beautifully uncompromised'."
