New Dell XPS 13 is faster, has Linux and comes with Rose Gold
Dell XPS 13 is one of the best windows ultrabooks that you can buy today. Unlike most of other windows laptops, it is not 2-in-1 but that is why, it is so good at being an ultrabook. Now, it has been refreshed with a new hardware, software and color options.
New model looks same in terms of design which means it continues to use lovely machined-aluminum and carbon fiber chassis which is 9mm thick. However, now, it comes with Rose Gold color option.
Under the hood, there is new 7th generation Intel Kaby Lake processors. You have a range of processors from i3 to i7 including Intel Core i3-7100U, Core i5-7200U and Core i7-7500U. Despite the new processors, Ram options are same. You can choose from 4, 8 or 16GB of LPDDR3-1866 RAM, and storage options are 128GB SATA-based SSD or 256GB, 512GB and 1TB PCIe SSDs.
There is also no change with the display. It still comes in one size ( which is 13,3-inch ) and it continues to have two options for the panel; Full HD InfinityEdge anti-glare screen and a QHD InfinityEdge touchscreen. While FullHD model can provide a runtime of 22 hours, QHD model can only provide a runtime up to 13 hours. It is still impressing though.
Also, you can choose between Windows 10 or Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with the refreshed Dell XPS 13. Windows model starts from $799 and the Ubuntu version ( which is named as “Developer Edition” ) has a price tag of a $949.
