Dell’s XPS 13 for Windows has been a great success among users who do not mind shelling out a thousand odd dollars for a powerful monster of a laptop that does justice to the price tag. For some of the geekier users of laptops who prefer the flexibility of the Linux Kernel to the convenience of Windows 10, the Ubuntu version is now available as well. Here are a few points that we would like to draw your attention to about the new release.

Dell XPS 13

The processor of the gadget is the latest dual core Intel Skylake Core i7 – 6560U with a clock speed of 2.2 GHz and a maximum frequency of 3.2 GHz. There are eight Gigs of DDR4 RAM along with a 256 GB SSD. A potential let-down of the laptop is that the battery is not removable, and once it has completed its lifespan (presumably long(, you have to get the laptop to customer care and shell out more money. There are three models available, the base model and two other models of higher specifications. As expected, the base model carries the hefty price tag of $1550. Unlike most of other Dell products, you do not have the option of customizing and manually improving the configuration of this device, so you have to go with either of the three that are offered.

One of the key aspects of the laptop is the screen. It has a resolution of 3200 by 1800, a QHD+ display that is a quantum leap over the FHD displays (1920 by 1080) that most laptops come in. The laptop has more than enough connectivity options and will undoubtedly work on most peripherals that you might own.
