Dell XPS 13 with 1080p Reviewed

Posted on 24 March 2013 by

Good design, good keyboard, Displayport, Windows 8, Ivy Bridge and a 1080p IPS display. What more could you want? The original Dell XPS 13 has been upgraded with Ivy Bridge and that 1080p display but there’s no touchscreen and still no SD card. The battery capacity is still a rather weak 45Wh too. Anandtech have just reviewed the upgraded Dell XPS 12 with full HD display.

The original Dell XPS 13 has been with us from 2011 and is positioned as a classic Ultrabook. We liked the keyboard and design but the port selection is a bit weak. The lack of touchscreen will preserve the weight (which usually increases by 150gm (about 10%) when the touch layer and protective glass is added and will keep the manufacturing costs down but we don’t see any truly amazing offers on the Dell XPS 13. Maybe Dell is looking to push the Dell XPS 12 as the touchscreen option. In which case, the XPS 12 needs a price drop from the recommended $999 price.

See Anandtech for more. Our Dell XPS 13 information page has a lot of information about the original Dell XPS 13 too.
