LAS VEGAS--Dell's got a new ultrabook on the way, and it's making use of aluminum and carbon fiber to get the job done.
During Intel's keynote here tonight, the vice chairman of Dell, Jeff Clarke, brought out the freshly-announced XPS 13, the new 13-inch model in Dell's XPS line that falls into the ultrabook category.
The sub-three-pound notebook is 6mm at its thinnest point and made out of machined aluminum. The base of the machine is made out of carbon fiber.
The machine, which the company will begin taking orders for in February, supports Intel's Core i5 and i7 processors. Clarke said it gets "almost" 9 hours of battery life, and boasts special features such as location awareness.
Other notable features include the use of Corning's Gorilla Glass on the screen, and what Clarke claimed to be 15 percent less size than other 13-inch notebooks.
