Dell Highlights Displays on New Notebooks

Dell has announced new notebooks in its XPS and Inspiron series and highlighted the display performance.

The XPS 13 is claimed to be the smallest 13″ notebook with a ‘virtually borderless’ InfinityEdge display of 13.3″ in an ’11 inch frame’ and fitted with Gorilla Glass. The display is available in FullHD or 3200 x 1800 display with touch. Processors are up to 7th Generation Core i7 with RAM up to 8GB and 256GB SSD. There’s a larger battery, at 60Whr, for up to 22 hours on FullHD or 13 hours on the higher resolution display. Dell said that the model is 17% smaller than the comparable MacBook Air 13″. Weight starts at 2.7lb (1.2kg) and thickness varies from 9-15mm.

The XPS 13 is available on Oct. 4 and the starting price for the XPS 13 is $799, but rises significantly for higher specifications.
