Dell is refreshing its XPS 13 ultrabook with a new model that’s even thinner and lighter than the 2013 model, which already weighed less than 3 pounds and measured just 0.7 inches thick.
The new Dell XPS 13 is 0.6 inches thick, weighs 2.6 pounds, and is powered by a 5th-gen Intel Core “Broadwell” processor. The thin-and light laptop also has a high resolution display, long battery life, and a design that Dell says makes this 13 inch laptop about the size of an 11 inch model.
The new Dell XPS 13 features a 13.3 inch display with a thin bezel (Dell calls it a “borderless infinity display) and the company offers a choice of a 1920 x 1080 pixel screen or a 3200 x 1800 pixel touchscreen. Both models are IPS screens with 170 degree viewing angles and 400-nit brightness.
The laptop measures 12″ x 7.9″ x 0.6” and weighs 2.6 pounds (or 2.8 pounds if you opt for a touchscreen model.
Dell has models with Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 Broadwell processors, 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB to 512GB of solid state storage.
Dell says the XPS 13’s 52 Whr battery can provide up to 15 hours of run time, and if that’s not good enough for you, there’s an optional Dell Power Companion that provides up to 8 hours of additional run time.
Other features include 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 3.0 ports, mini DisplayPort, an SD card reader, and a backlit keyboard.
The Dell XPS 13 is available starting today for $800 and up.
