Dell XPS 13 laptop was unveiled at CES in mid January 2012, and it’s already available for consumers as expected. I missed the announcement, but it’s not too late to buzz the excitement. The XPS 13 comes with 13.3-inch LED display but in similar size of an 11-inch laptop, thanks to the edge-to-edge design. My current laptop is Sony VAIO Z which also has 13.3-inch display, but if I can upgrade my laptop this time, I will choose the Dell XPS 13 which already wins my heart based on its design and powerhouse. Another gadget that wins my heart is the Canon 5D Mark III instead of Nikon D800 full frame camera, I hope I can have it this year or next year.
Offers at a starting price of $999, the XPS 13‘s basic configuration includes an Intel Core i5 processor, 128GB SSD hard drive and 4GB memory. Wow.. the basic configuration alone already beats my $2,000 VAIO Z when I bought three years ago. The higher spec options include: Intel Core i7 2637M processor and 256GB SSD drive. Another key selling point that you may love is the fast booting time, it needs only 13 seconds, thanks to the SSD and the Intel Rapid Start technology. Regarding battery life, this ultra thin laptop offers up to 8 hours and 35 minutes. If you work 9 to 9, it’s more than enough for your daily activities. It’s also good for traveling as it weighs at less than 1.4 kilograms.
Running Windows 7, the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook enhanced with Intel HD 3000 video graphics; backlit chiclet keyboard; glass integrated button touchpad with multi-gesture support; Intel Wi-Fi 802.11 A/G/N and Bluetooth 3.0; High definition audio with Waves MaxxAudio 4; USB 3.0 + USB 2.0 with PowerShare, mini Display-Port, and headset jack; Built-in 1.3MP webcam and microphones.
