MEET THE NEW XPS 13: STYLISH AND POWERFUL AND BETTER BY EVERY MEASURE
Ahead of CES 2018, which is set to begin Tuesday, January 9, Dell has announced the release of their newest laptop, the New XPS 13. This computer joins the line of other XPS laptops that include the XPS 13 2-in-1 and the XPS 15. The XPS 13 was originally launched at CES 2012 and this latest design is a reimagining of the popular computer.
Frank Azor, Vice President and General Manager of XPS, Alienware, and Dell Gaming stated this about the new XPS 13:
In reimagining the XPS 13, Dell took inspiration from the realm of fashion, where rose gold remains a trending color and white accents have been growing in popularity, seen everywhere from watch bands to sneakers. However, when turning our XPS white, we strived to achieve elegance and invested more than a dozen people, 11,520 hours and 50 trials to create a new system that was as stunning inside and out. The Dell design team didn’t want to simply paint a system white –they wanted to use authentic materials and make sure the system looked as beautiful on day 1000 as it does on day 1.
Besides its head-turning exterior, the all-new XPS 13 is better by every measure. Now even more portable as the smallest 13-inch laptop on the planet, its stunning InfinityEdge display fits this 13-inch laptop in an 11-inch frame. It’s a full 30% (3.4mm) thinner as well as lighter, starting at just 2.7 pounds, making the XPS 13 the ultimate in mobility and durability.
Running Windows 10 and powered by the latest Intel 8th Generation Quad Core processor, XPS 13 delivers superior mobile performance with fast booting SSDs up to 1TB. You can also expect the longest battery life of any 13-inch laptop, with almost 20 hours on FHD, up to 11 on UHD (Mobile Mark 14).
While we made the system smaller and lighter, we were also able to increase the performance by 2xover the most recent XPS 13, and maintain the world’s most powerful 13-inch laptop in its class. So how did we do that? We have the most innovative performance and thermal engineering at Dell.
