The Dell XPS 13 gets a special gold editionThis updated Dell XPS 13 keeps the barely there bezel, and adds some high-end features.
There are lot of cool looking laptops out there but you have one that's gold. It's pretty hard to find. Well I mean there's 12 inch gold MacBook and maybe one or two others but it's still fairly rare. This is an Updated version of the Dell XPS 13 we liked so much last year, liked that model and the 15 inch version of the XPS. It's got a very, very, very thin screen bezel that display goes right up to the very edge. They call it an infinity display and once you see it, it's really a striking look. And it lets you make the footprint of the laptop smaller, and it really puts the screen front and center. This is a very comparable to 13 inch class laptops from Lenovo or from Microsoft, pretty much like a MacBook Air. Cuz the footprint is a little bit smaller on the Dell it actually feels heftier, but they all weigh the same a little bit under three pounds. You can do some basic gaming on this guy because one of the updates is To Intel's eye risk level graphics that they are slightly better integrated graphics chip, it's not as good as having it's own dedicated graphics card. But it's good for very casual gaming. Now, the XPS13 line starts at 999, but you're not going to get this model for that. That's something without a touchscreen, a lower risk screen, a lower end processor. This model here, has pretty much all the bells and whistles. It's got the 3200 by 1800 touchscreen It's got a Core i7 processor, a big solid state drive and of course that very cool gold color. And it's gonna be about $1,600. A hefty investment but a very cool laptop. That's the Dell XPS 13 gold edition. [MUSIC]
