Who doesn’t like ultrabooks? They’re sleek, light, elegant, blazingly fast and have pretty awesome batteries. But if there’s one feature you still don’t see enough of in the ultrabook market, that’s definitely Full HD screens.
But there’s a new guy around town that you can add to the shortlist of Full HD ultrabooks. In fact, a couple of new guys belonging to the same brand – Dell XPS 13.
The one year-old series of 13-inchers has just got a refresher that adds 1,080p screens to the mix. A mix that already included treats like third-gen Core i5 and i7 CPUs, large-capacity SSDs and up to 8 GB of RAM.
As you’d expect, you’ll be asked to cough up a small fortune for one of the Full HD XPS 13 ultrabooks, but they’re almost definitely worth it. The model with a Core i5-3337U processor is already available via Dell.com for $1,399, while the Core i7-3537U version will start shipping on February 14 and set you back 1,600 bucks.
Both laptops come with 256 GB SSDs, 8 GB of RAM, Intel HD 4000 graphics and pre-loaded Windows 8. They also only weigh 2.99 pounds while measuring a mere 0.71 inches in thickness. Now, who wants one? And who can actually afford it?
