Dell refreshes XPS 13 with new color and faster processor

Published

on

The Dell XPS 13 is widely considered to be the most attractive Windows laptop, and we have to agree. With a nearly bezel-free screen, lightweight build, and high-end processor inside, it’s the notebook you’ll want to use wherever you go. With the release of Intel’s seventh-generation chips, Dell decided to update its most popular laptop with better specs, plus a fresh coat of paint.

With the exception of the new rose gold color, there’s not much to report about the design. It’s the same slim physique we saw last year, complete with full-sized USB ports, an SD card reader, and the newer USB Type-C port every gadget has been adopting. The full aluminum shell with carbon fiber palm rests also make a return.

More importantly, the updated XPS 13 now has the latest processor set from Intel, making the notebook significantly faster and longer-lasting than its predecessor. You can choose between the entry-level Core i3, midrange Core i5, and flagship Core i7 models depending on your needs. As for RAM, there are 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB options, while storage goes from 128GB all the way up to 1TB. Just don’t expect much gaming or video editing muscle in the XPS 13, as you’re limited to integrated Intel graphics because of the thin profile.

Like in the past, you have an option between the Quad HD+ 3200 x 1800-pixel display and the more affordable Full HD 1920 x 1080-pixel screen. Both are 13.3 inches and have the slim outer bezels that have become a trademark look for the series. Corning Gorilla Glass ensures that sudden drops won’t instantly crack the display.

Shipments will begin on October 4, and prices begin at $799 for the most basic model. The rose gold variant costs significantly more — $1,149 to be specific.

The interesting development means all 28 Watsons locations in Singapore, as well as the shop’s online store, will have Logitech’s various products on display and ready to be purchased.

According to Logitech’s Bernard Chow, the Head of Cluster for Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines, the move tries to cement the brand’s identity as not only a “tech” brand but also a “lifestyle” brand.
