Smallest 13-inch laptop on the planet, the new Dell XPS 13, features the world’s first virtually borderless infinity display, powerful mobile performance and up to 15 hours of battery life, all in the size of a typical 11-inch laptop
For 2015, Dell just released the all-new XPS 13 laptop, with Windows 8.1, designed to be the best-performing notebook of its size, featuring the longest battery life of a 13-inch notebook with up to 15 hours of run time on a single charge. The laptop’s optional UltraSharp Quad HD+ infinity display, with 5.2mm bezels, boasts an incredible 5.7 million pixels, so movies and presentations burst with eye-popping color and precise detail. The 5th Generation Intel Core processors and solid state drives provide performance and responsiveness, and the remarkably light form factor starts at a mere 2.6 pounds. Windows users finally have a rival to Apple’s MacBook Air, at least in a style sense.
The virtually borderless infinity display cleverly fits a 13-inch display into the size of an 11-inch laptop. Compared to the Apple MacBook Air 13-inch, the XPS 13 is 23% smaller with the same size screen. The thin bezel frees up the screen space in this innovative design. The three-sided, virtually borderless infinity display measures a miniscule 5.2mm border: the thinnest frame on a notebook. With a slim bezel of less than 2% of the total display, you have more screen to love.
The UltraSharp QHD+ resolution (3200×1800) display option gives you 5.7 million pixels (276 ppi) for the ultimate screen performance with precise clarity and eye-popping details. There are over 2.5 times as many pixels as FHD, 5 times as many as HD and 4.4 times as many as the MacBook Air 13 (or other products with HD+ displays). The XPS 13 also available with a Full HD non-touch display (1920×1080).
The improved touch pad delivers the exact action you intend, every time, so no more jumping or floating cursors. It delivers fluid panning, pinching and zooming, for an experience that’s touch screen-smooth and quick, and similar to the gestures you are used to on screen. And with Accidental Activation Prevention, there are no more mis-clicks when your palm hits the touch pad.
Other notables are a standard backlit keyboard, machined aluminum construction with carbon fiber, Corning Gorilla Glass NBT QHD+ display that is up to 10 times more scratch resistant than soda lime glass, so it helps prevent scuffs caused by handling, cleaning or wiping. XPS 13 is also more power-efficient than ever, enough to be ENERGY STAR 6.0 certified.

The Dell XPS 13 will be available beginning January 6, 2015 on Dell.com in the United Stated, priced from $799.99 to $1,899, and available in both non-touch and touchscreen versions.
