Dell slid out the Ultrabook XPS 13 for CES 2012. It is slim, sleek, and dashing. Ultrabooks are the new pink around here. The thinner the better. The lighter the better. It sports a seemingly seamless edge-to-edge display with a slim bezel. The 13.3-inch display is so sleek you’d think it was a 11 incher. The batter life claims to last all day. At just under 2lbs and 1/4 inch at the thinnest part, it doesn’t get anymore ultra. Its thin frame is not lacking in features. Here are the highlights:
The XPS 13 delivers second-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, Intel HD 3000
graphics and a bright high definition WLED 300-nit display for outstanding viewing experiences, packaged in an elegantly-designed, ultraportable laptop. For users who store movies, music and photos, the XPS 13 has 128GB and 256GB solid state hard drive options, plus an additional 100GB of cloud storage through Dell DataSafe for seamless content backup and sharing at no additional cost. Additionally, all XPS 13 units include a 12-month Skype Premium subscription to always stay in touch.
The XPS 13 will be available at the end of February in the United States through Dell, and in select retail stores nationwide at a starting price of $999 with an Intel Core i5 processor, 128GB SSD hard drive and 4GB memory.
