I have had the Dell XPS 13 for a few months now and to say I love it would be a huge understatement. In fact, I use it so much now that my iPad is collecting dust in favor of grabbing this lightweight and powerhouse little ultrabook. To complete the XPS line in similar fashion to the XPS 13, Dell has launched the XPS 14 and XPS 15. Available now for $1,099 for the 14”, and $1,299 for the 15 inch XPS.
The XPS 14 features all day battery power (11 hours) so when you are on the go, fooling around with plugs and finding power will not be your primary concern. Like the XPS 13 the 14 features beautiful edge to edge screen strengthened by Corning’s Gorilla Glass.Unlike the bottom of my XPS 13 that is Carbon Fiber, the XPS 14 has a silicone bottom to help keep it cool when parked on your lap say for instance at the airport. The XPS 14 is less than an inch thin (0.81 inches or 20.7mm) and starts at just 4.6 pounds (or 2.1kg).
The XPS 15 is less than an inch thick (0.91 inches or 23.2mm) and starts at 5.79 pounds (2.6kg). Its larger 15.6-inch display supports full HD resolution (1920×1080) and a brightness of 350 nits. The XPS 15 also supports up to 16GB dual-channel DDR3 1600 MHz memory. It also includes a slot load Blu-ray disc drive and supports larger standard 3.5-inch hard drive options up to 1TB. In addition to support for the NVIDIA 630m that we offer in the XPS 14, customers who need even more graphics horsepower can opt for the GeForce GT 640m with 2GB GDDR5 memory. Both discrete card options support NVIDIA Optimus technology. With all its hardware prowess, the XPS 15 still gets up to eight hours of battery life.
If the XPS 14 and 15 perform like their little brother the XPS 13, you can expect an amazing experience!
