Dell XPS 13
At CES, Dell announced a new update version of its popular ultra-portable clamshell laptop: the XPS 13. Along with a new higher-res 4K display.
The new XPS 13 will also come with the latest 8th generation Intel processors to offer a bump in performance and efficiency with up to 11 hours of advertised battery life.
There will be two colors available: Silver and Rose Gold. The silver model has a darker gray-colored palm rest and keyboard while the outer shell is, well, silver. Meanwhile, the Rose Gold option has a goldish-pinkish lid and the rest of the laptop is white.
The new XPS 13 offers slimmer bezels and a new Infra-red camera for Windows Hello authentication and four integrated microphones for voice recognition and Cortana capabilities. Of course, this laptop is part of the new trend to put web cameras below the display, which may be awkward for those who do a lot of video conferencing.
Microsoft’s website sell the 4K version, but if you care more about battery life, you can find the 1080p version on Dell’s website starting at $949.
