Dell Fills Out High-Performance XPS Notebook Line
Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) expanded its line of high-performance notebooks with the addition of the XPS 14 and XPS 15, which join the XPS 13 Ultrabook — perfect for those road warriors who need performance, durability and a lightweight design.
Designed for mobile users, the XPS 14 Ultrabook, starting at $1,099, features a 14-inch display, machined aluminum chassis with silicone base, a backlit keyboard, HD edge-to-edge display and up to 11 hours of battery life. The Ultrabook carries the option of a 500GB solid state drive (SSD) or traditional drive, as well as Intel Rapid Start and Smart Response technologies.
Dell is also upping the mobile ante by offering an integrated mobile broadband option, which allows users to connect to mobile broadband networks via the company’s NetReady mobile broadband service, a pay-as-you-go service allowing users to surf the Web where Wi-Fi isn’t available.
Priced starting at $1,299, the XPS 15 boasts a full HD (1080p) 15-inch display made with durable Gorilla Glass, which is designed to resist scratches and damage. Other features include Nvidia graphics, an optional integrated slot load Blu-ray disc drive and third-gen Intel Core processors, as well as an optional SSD.
Business users have no shortage of options when it comes to feature-packed, ultra-portable notebooks, which is why Dell is sweetening the deal with a protection plan including one year of theft protection with Computrace LoJack for Laptops theft recovery service and an accidental damage service for those times when your latte ends up all over your keyboard.
