The XPS 13 Ultrabook’s exterior is a blend of machined aluminum and light-weight carbon fiber. The 13.3-inch edge-to-edge LED display is protected by Gorilla Glass, similar to many Android smartphones and Apple’s iPhone, and the backlit keyboard allows for typing in low light (if you’re not a touch-typist). Weighing 3-pounds, the XPS 13 is just 0.24 inches at the front, and 0.7-inches at its thickest point.
You can choose between 2nd Generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, depending on your needs (and your budget). You can also select either a 128GB or 256GB SSD. Standard internals include 4GB of DDR3 RAM, Intel HD Graphics, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11n Wi-Fi, a 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
For a limited time you also get a T-Mobile 4G mobile hotspot with 90 days of service, free with the purchase of select XP3 13 ultrabook configurations.
