Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook is expected to be unveiled sometime later this month. While not much excitement has preceded the little-anticipated launch, a ‘mistake’ on the part of Dell suddenly brought it to the spotlight recently. What happened was that Dell accidentally leaked the manual for Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook but as soon as it realized the mistake, it pulled them off the web.
In case you didn’t catch up with Dell’s claims, according to them the XPS 13 Ultrabook will be “world’s best ultrabook,” being “the smallest, the most powerful, the most aesthetically pleasing, the best to touch, the best at being enterprise-ready.” Well, we can rest assured that once Dell launches the device, it will be well gauged against these claims.
From the details about XPS 13 that we do know so far, it will be featuring a 13.3-inch display and a full-sized backlit keyboard. The device will be tooling either a Core i52467M or i7 2637M dual-core processor. Moreover, it will feature Intel HD 3000 graphics.
The device will have a fairly adequate 4GB RAM with 128GB or 256GB SSDs. What’s really interesting is the fact that the whole device will weigh a mere 2.99 pounds and the battery will be able to juice up your work on it for up to 8 hours. Also, the device will be ultra-slick at a 18mm-thick profile.
The materials used in the manufacturing of XPS 13 will also be different from Dell’s conventional choices. Rather than aluminium, it will use carbon fiber, hence the light weight. It will also have a 1.3-megapixel camera and other must-have features of an Ultrabook such as Bluetooth, Wifi, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports etc. It is expected to hit the shelves within a week and the starting price is a whooping $999.
