Dell XPS 13 is its first ultrabook
This year at CES, Dell left everybody with surprise by unveiling its first ultrabook called the XPS 13. The device here seemed to have taken more than few design cues from Apple’s MacBook Air and packs in an edge-to-edge bonded 13” ETE Gorilla glass display. Though the laptop is thinner, it still provides the full functionality of a standard-sized laptop. It has Intel dual-core Core i3, i5 or i7 processors based on the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture, up to 256GB of solid-state drive storage, USB 3.0 port, webcam and 4GB of RAM. Dell says the laptop will initially be available in the US and some other parts but remained shy about availability elsewhere and pricing info.
