Dell‘s line of high-performance XPS laptops just got better with new models that feature Intel’s latest Skylake processors. The new 12-inch, 13-inch, and 15-inch laptops are designed to be thin and small.
Frank Azor, general manager of Dell XPS, said in an interview with VentureBeat that the 13-inch XPS model has the “smallest footprint for a 13-inch laptop on the planet.” That’s due in no small part to the power-efficient, high-performance Intel code-named Skylake processors, formally known as sixth-generation Core processors. The laptops are an example of a whole generation of new devices based on Intel’s newest chips and Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system.
The XPS 13 has a virtually borderless InfinityEdge display. The system is virtually identical to a previous version unveiled at the International CES 2015 trade show in January, but now it is upgraded with the new Intel processors, which offer better performance, long battery life, and other features such as improved security. It has 1 terabyte of solid state drive (SSD) memory and 16 gigabytes of main memory. The battery lasts up to 18 hours and 14 minutes.
