Dell has revealed and released a refreshed version of its well-received XPS 13 laptop, with the upgraded machine featuring new design elements as well as sporting updated specs for 2018.
In an interview, Dell vice president Frank Azor said the designers took inspiration from fashion, where rose gold is a trending color and white accents are popular.
In another "cool" vein, Dell is releasing a new Ubuntu Linux-powered XPS 13 model at CES 2018, which will attract almost 200,000 attendees and take place in several locations January 8 through 12. The XPS 13 is often touted as delivering a 13.3 display in a body of a 12-inch laptop, thanks to its nearly borderless InfinityEdgedisplay.
Users can look forward to as much as 20 hours of per charge life from its 52 WHr battery, with the option to tweak performance to balance battery life, charging, thermals and acoustics or engage Dynamic Power Mode to kick in maximum power.
Besides its head-turning exterior and looks Dell has commented that the new XPS 13 is better in every measure. So how did we do that?
"We didn't compromise on battery life, either. with the new XPS 13, we will deliver over 19 hours of battery life, even with all that incredible performance in it".
Dell's XPS 13 is the physical embodiment of the "if it 'ain't broke, don't fix it" mantra.
XPS 13 9370 in rose gold is available from February, from £1,669.
Overall, Dell XPS 13 is a lightweight, portable ultrabook with features far superior to the latest 2017 Mackbook lineup. The laptop also has a titanium oxide coating to offer a pearlescent sheen while being UV and stain-resistant. The company claims that XPS 13 doesn't stain over time and looks brand new even after 1,000 days of being used. Our particular machine was fully loaded with an Ultra HD 4K InfinityEdge multi-touch display, with the thinnest of bezels, a 1TB NVMe Solid State Drive, and 16GB of RAM supporting its quad-core Intel Core i7-8550U 8th Gen processor, which tops out at a snappy 4GHz Turbo speed. Those heading to Las Vegas next week can see the new laptop for themselves at Dell's CES booth in the Venetian.
The Dell XPS packs a display that guarantees a peak brightness of 400nits.
You can pick from 4K UHD- or full HD-resolution touch displays or a full HD non-touch one, all with a max brightness of 400 nits.
A healthy array of ports are on offer, including two Thunderbolt 3 connections, a microSD card reader, a USB Type-C input with DisplayPort support, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Optional fingerprint sensor on the power button. The company is offering the Ubuntu developer edition with Linux preloaded starting at $949.99 on Dell.com in the US and Europe. Performance is improved through a cooling system consisting of a dual fan and dual heat pipe. Dell XPS 13 is priced at Rs $999, and it will go on sale in USA on January 4.
Griffin, Teodosic set to return for Clippers
As fans of the player will recall, Griffin suffered a sprained MCL in November 2017, which kept him on the bench for two months. But due to the heroics of Lou Williams , the Clippers were able to take back the lead and survive the game with a victory.
