The original XPS 13 sold for $1000 and included a 720p display, a i5 processor, 4GB RAM and a 128GB SSD. The new, updated model will sell for $1400 and include an updated i5, double the RAM and double the SSD space along with the Full HD screen.
“The new 1080p display contains almost 2x the pixels of a typical 720p display, and the difference is noticeable,” said Dell chief blogger Lionel Menchaca. “Everything looks sharper, whether you are viewing high resolution images, watching 1080p video or even reading text on an eBook or a web page. More pixels also means you’ll have more screen real estate, so you will see more of that spreadsheet (see image below) or that you’ll be able to see more detail in a high resolution image than you would compared to a typical notebook screen.”
The second new model sells for $1600 and features an i7 processor, with everything else being the same.
