Dell introduces new full HD Ultrabook

Dell has re-launched its latest Ultrabook laptop and given it a full high-definition makeover.

The 13.3-inch Dell XPS 13 was introduced by the computer manufacturer on its website and now comes with a 1,920 by 1,080-pixel resolution, compared to last year’s 720-pixel model.

First unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 in Las Vegas at the beginning of the year, there are two configurations for the laptop. For $1,400 (£893), US consumers can pay for a model with an Intel Core i5-3337U processor, or $1,600 for a version running a more impressive Intel Core i7-3537U processor.

With the new products, people will benefit from a maximum brightness level of 300-nits, which is up to 75 times brighter than the original 200-nit LCD screens used for laptops. Each computer also has a 178-degree maximum viewing angle.

Other features of the Ultrabook include 8GB of random access memory and a 256GB SSD and those looking for high quality on a tighter budget can still purchase the previous editions of the laptop. Standard prices range from between $999 and $1,199, depending on configuration.
