Dell XPS 13 Review
Dell XPS 13 is a 13 inch laptop with HD (720p) WLED display, edge-to-edge hardened Gorilla Glass. You can choose the configuration either Core i5 2467M or Core i7 2637M CPU as well as integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics, 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM and a 256GB solid state drive. It offers up to 8 hours of battery-life.
The Sandy bridge chip runs with an integrated Intel graphics card with about 1.5GB given over to shared video memory. There’s almost no bezel around the edge of Dell XPS 13, so the 13.3-inch screen seems like it’s sitting in an 11-inch laptop. The whole screen is made with tough Gorilla Glass and the 1366 x 768 pixel resolution is good enough to enjoy 720p high-definition movies.
