Dell outs XPS 13 Ultrabook, starts at Php59,590
With the growing popularity of Ultrabooks these days, it’s no surprise then that the market keeps on gaining new entrants and making it hard for consumers on what brand to choose from. Just when you thought you had your pick Dell has just launched their new flagship product, the XPS 13 Ultrabook and you may want to consider have a look on this one.
The Dell XPS is quite the looker with an aluminum frame and a carbon fiber base, making it lightweight and durable at the same time. It’s only 6mm thin at its thinnest point and weighs only 1.36 kilos making it at par with the top Ultrabooks in the market today.
Ultrabooks are all about portability and the XPS13 features a 13″ WLED HD display (1366 x 768) within the form that’s similar to an 11″ laptop. This is because the 13″ display makes use of the available space around the frame, leaving a small portion for the bezel. The screen sports a Gorilla Glass display for added durability. It also has a backlit keyboard and a generous-sized touchpad.
The battery was reported to have an 8-hour life in which we’ll have to prove whenever we get our hands on it for review. As for performance, the XPS13 is powered by a 2nd Generation Intel Core i5-2467M or Core i7-2647M processor, both with 4GB DD3 memory.
Lastly, the price comes with an SRP of Php 59,590 for the Intel Core i5 with 128GB SSD directly competing with the Asus Zenbook UX31. If you want more disk space, you need Php71,990 for the same Intel Core i5 with a bigger 256GB SSD then it’s a ridiculous Php79,990 for the Intel Core i7 with 256GB SSD.
