Dell adds more models to XPS line
A week after the announcement of the updated Dell XPS 15 notebook, the US computer manufacturer Dell has added two more models to the XPS line – the all-new XPS 12 model and the ultra portable XPS 13 notebook. The new notebooks offer the latest Intel Skylake processors and have been designed from the ground up for the new Windows 10 OS.
“Beginning with CES 2015, when we first unveiled the world’s smallest laptop – the XPS 13 with our exclusive InfinityEdge display – the world took notice of the innovations coming out of Dell that no other laptop manufacturer was offering,” said Frank Azor, general manager of Dell XPS. “Today we are further demonstrating our commitment to innovation and design by delivering the most impressive XPS lineup ever seen.”
The new XPS notebooks add more features to the Dell XPS line that include ultra light materials such as carbon fiber and machined aluminum for the chassis, very high quality displays with stunning visuals, Gorilla Glass protection, best-in-class security features and low environmental impact that can be seen in the packaging – the Dell XPS 12 and XPS 13 are shipped in recyclable, compost-friendly boxes that do not harm the environment.
The new Dell XPS 12 is a hybrid device that can work as a tablet or a notebook PC. The device has a magnetic connection that allows users to easily switch between laptop and tablet mode and offers a 4K Ultra HD display (optional) that has 6 million more pixels than a Full HD display. The device also has an 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front one as well as a special mobility base that provides a sleek full-size backlit keyboard and precision touchpad for working on the go.
The XPS 13 has been updated to 6th generation Intel Core Skylake processors and now has more memory and more storage than before – up to 1 TB PCIe SSD and up to 16 GB of DDR3L SDRAM. The XPS 13 comes with a 13.3-inch borderless InfinityEdge display and a battery that can provide more than 18 hours of battery life. This is impressive, to say the least.
The new Dell XPS 12 notebook will be available in November for USD 999 and up, while the larger Dell XPS 13 notebook is now on the market where it sells for USD 799 and up.
