An XPS 12 2-in-1, an XPS 13 13-inch laptop and a top-end XPS 15 laptop with a 4K Ultra HD display recharge the XPS lineup.Dell has unveiled three new laptops to fill out its XPS line: the XPS 12 2-in-1, the XPS 13 laptop with a 13-inch display and a top-end XPS 15 that features a 4K Ultra HD InfinityEdge display. The new portables, which all run on Windows 10, were announced by the company in an Oct. 8 post on the Dell Blog. The XPS 12 2-in-1 can easily be switched from a laptop into a tablet with one hand by removing the display from the keyboard by pulling it away from its magnetic connector. The machine includes an Intel Core M5 chipset, two USB-C ports, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-MP front-facing camera. The XPS 12, which starts at $999 and will be available beginning Nov. 5, can also be ordered with an optional 4K Ultra HD display. The new XPS 13 laptop features 6th-generation Intel Core processors and Intel HD graphics, as well as solid-state drive options of up to 1TB and memory configurations up to 16GB. The machine includes expected battery life of up to 18 hours, as well as a Thunderbolt 3 multiuse port that can be used for device charging and connections to two external 4K displays, and for ultra-fast data transfers of up to 40G bps, eight times that of a USB 3.0, according to Dell.
The XPS 13 is a 13-inch laptop that is squeezed into an 11-inch frame, making it smaller while maintaining its screen size.
The machine starts at $799 and is available immediately, with touch-screen models starting at $1,449. A special gold version of the XPS 13 will be available for $1,649 from selected retailers.
