Dell presents XPS 13 notebook

The US computer maker Dell has presented the XPS 13 notebook, which the US company claims is the world’s most compact 13-inch notebook.

The claim is not far from the truth as the XPS 13 dimensions are comparable to those of an 11-inch notebook. The device is just 15 mm thick and has 5.2 mm bezels around the display. The chassis of the XPS 13 is made of carbon fiber and aluminum, which makes it both light and durable. There are two versions of the notebook – the first version sports a 13-inch display at 1920 x 1080 pixels, while the second version has the same 13-inch display but with sensor technology, QHD+ (3200 x 1800 pixels) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. This affects the notebook weight, however – the first version of the notebook weighs 1.18 kilograms, while in the second case the XPS 13 weighs 1.26 kilograms.

On the inside the Dell XPS 13 has Intel Broadwell Core i7-5500U, Core i7-5600U or Core i5-5200U processors, up to 8 GB of DDR3 SDRAM, 128/256/512 GB of SSD storage, a 1.3 MP web camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, Intel Rapid Start technology, Waves MaxxAudio 4 technology and a Mini Display port. A 52 watt-hour battery powers the XPS 13 – it is capable of providing up to 11 hours of battery life in the case of the sensor display XPS 13 version and up to 15 hours of battery life for the Full HD display version.

The XPS 13 runs Windows 8.1 64-bit out of the box. No word on pricing or availability as of now.
