Latest Dell XPS 13 gets ultrabook tag, $999 price

Dell has rolled out its new XPS 13 ultrabook, a 13-inch notebook in a 12-inch form factor. The XPS 13 is highlighted by its edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass display and a thin bezel framing its HD WLED 1366x678 display. It also incorporates a full-size backlit keyboard and pairs second-gen Core i-series processors with fast SSDs.

To help get the XPS 13 under 3-pounds, Dell has combined a CNC machined aluminum frame with a carbon fiber base, that also has the effect of strengthening its chassis. Like its 13-inch MacBook Air target, it has a glass buttonless trackpad, and takes up 15 percent less desk space overall. At its thickest point, the XPS 13 is 18mm thick and 6mm at its thinnest.

When it ships, the standard configuration will start with a Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and a 47WHr battery good for up to 8 hours of battery life. It also incorporates Intel's Smart Connect tech to stay up to date as well as Intel's Rapid Start for faster booting.

The first 10,000 customers to purchase an XPS 13 in the US will receive a free T-Mobile 4G mobile hotspot and 90 days of free mobile broadband service at up to 4G speeds with no annual contract at time of purchase.

The Dell XPS 13 will ship by the end of February starting from $999. It is currently available for pre-order on the Dell online store.
