Dell XPS 13 gets Hi-res screen next week

Posted on 04 February 2013, Last updated on 04 February 2013 by

Dell’s XPS 13 has been available for a while and has been well received but a couple of features were not as well liked as others. Next week an updated version of the Ultrabook will be available which addresses one of the major  perceived shortcomings and adds a few other related improvements as well.

When originally released the  XPS13 came with a 1366×768 screen resolution that seemed out of place on a premium Ultrabook but starting next week the PC will be available with an upgraded to a 1920×1080 resolution. Along with the higher resolution screen Dell also states there will be improvements to the screen including an increase in the viewing angle to 178 degrees, increased brightness at 350 nits from the current 300 and an increased color gamut at 72% over the 45% in the lower screen res version.

At the moment PC manufacturers are starting to embrace higher resolution screens in their Ultrabooks and with the new XPS13 Dell is positioned to compete on the same playing field as Acer, Asus and Samsung.

The hi-res XPS13 will start at $1,299 and goes on sale from next Tuesday.
