Dell is participating in IT Show 2017 and they have a range of new laptops released in January 2017 and they are now available at IT Show 2017!

Dell is adding the XPS 13 2-in-1, the world’s smallest 13-inch 2-in-1[1], to the beloved XPS family. It offers a 360-degree hinge for multiple productivity and viewing options using Continuum, up to 15 hours of battery life[2] and eye-popping clarity with a gorgeous QHD+ (5.7M pixels) InfinityEdge touch display—another first for a 2-in-1.

The fan-less design keeps it silent and the quick-booting solid state drive has it up and running in seconds. And for business customers, the XPS 13 2-in-1 can be configured with 7th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors and Dell BIOS and manageability software—all backed by Dell’s global ProSupport services.

Dell has also updated the XPS 15, the smallest 15.6-inch laptop on the planet[3], with 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture – GeForce GTX 100 graphics.

Introducing Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook

In a highly internet connectivity and social media driven society today, with many people arming themselves with laptops, smartphones, tablets and music devices etc. The demand and expectations of the consumers led to new and innovative laptop designs from the days of low cost lightweight highly portable netbooks and notebooks, to the arrival of the tablets from the various designers. There is an emergence of the Ultrabook, ushering in a new era of lightweight, highly portable and packed with powerful technical specifications inside the thin sleek body.

I was recently invited by Dell Singapore and XPR to have a feel and touch of their Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook at a Saturday lunch event held at Antoinette, 333A Orchard Road, Mandarin Gallery with great ambience, food and hospitality. It was a great event to meet the friendly folks from Dell Singapore and XPR, along with fellow social media / blogging friends to catch up and enjoy the lunch event together. While having our beverages and lunch together, we were all busy “queuing” to catch hold of the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook.

Holding the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook on my hands for the first time, it was a solid and stable feeling. Looking around it, touching it, you can see and feel for yourself the craftsmanship, thoughtful design and durability that a consumer wants in their laptop/ultrabook today, the best of both worlds. 

Here’s some key technical specifications of the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook

• Ultrathin laptop  (0.24-0.71-inch/6-18mm) and light starting at 2.99lbs

From my short 2 hours stint with the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook, my personal thoughts are this Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook suits both the consumers and business users whereby you can combine your leisure and work together in there. Although the weight of the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook is relatively heavier than the counterparts in the market, I personally feel that their craftsmanship, durability, design, stability and sturdiness makes up for the a little bit more weight here.

If you looking for an Ultrabook, the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook is definitely worth a consideration ! Do check out their Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook website for more information on their pricing for the different specs ! I would like to thank Dell Singapore and XPR for this event invitation and the wonderful XPS 13 Ultrabook photo gift that I received !
