First Look: The Dell XPS 13 and 15 feature high-end specs and thin designs

1:47 /

Dell goes ultra high-end with its XPS 13 and 15 laptops.

Hey, guys. This is Eric Franklin from CNET. I'm in San Francisco. And today, I'm taking a first look at Dell's new line of XPS laptops. Dell says its XPS 13 is the thinnest, lightest ultrabook ever built. And with a 0.7-inch thickness, I wouldn't soon argue that point. The device runs on Intel's new Haswell processor with an Intel HD 4400 GPU. This year's XPS 13 houses a 1920x1200 resolution screen with a wide viewing angle. There are two full USB ports and a Mini DisplayPort. The body is made from reinforced carbon and aluminum, and the bezels are noticeably small. The high-end version of the XPS 15 goes big with an incredibly sharp 3200x1800 resolution stretched across 15.6 inches of screen. And at 0.7 inches, still manages to be impressively thin. It features 3 USB 3.0 ports, a full SD slot, HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, and a single USB 2.0 port. The palm rest is large, with plenty of room for your hands and a wide key array. You'll have your choice of going with an integrated Intel graphics option or going with a discrete Nvidia GeForce 750M. Look for more on both the XPS 13 and 15 soon. I'm Eric Franklin, and this has been a first look at the Dell XPS 13 and 15.
