Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook’s Specs, Price and Release Date Revealed

in Technology

In the year of 2012, wise consumers tend to buy thin, light, quick-starting Windows laptops called ultrabooks. As the result, many companies, including Lenovo, Toshiba and even Dell have already invested in this new category. In recent years, Dell has had some difficulties in attracting buyers. Therefore, the XPS 13 introduced recently with specs, price, release date and other details is expected to attract more consumers for the company.

Dell XPS 13 is not different from other ultrabooks. Being a thin, light laptop with excellent powers, the XPS 13 is aimed to complete with Apple’s MacBook Air. Dell XPS 13 features a full-size screen and keyboard. The ultrabook, which uses a solid-state drive, starts up as well as resumes quickly.

 

The XPS 13 is the first ultrabook to be released by Dell late in February 2012 in the United States at $999

On the other hand, the laptop is equipped with a 13-inch screen, making the device easier to be put in a briefcase. When being placed alongside a MacBook Air, the Dell’s first ultrabook looks noticeably smaller. However, the Dell XPS 13 isn’t smaller than its competitors in various dimensions.

Talking about Dell XPS 13 ultrabook’s price, the ultra slim laptop with 4 gigabytes of memory and a 128 gigabyte solid-state drive is priced starting at $999. With the same specs, the Dell XPS 13 is estimated $300 less than Apple’s MacBook Air.

Although the 13-inch screen is suitable in Dell’s first ultrabook, it features a lower resolution in comparison to the Apple screen of the same size. Dell says they will improve the resolution later this year.

However, Dell XPS 13’s battery life is disappointing. The battery on the XPS 13 lasts just under four hours in comparison to nearly five hours of the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s and almost six hours of the MacBook Air.
