After the rise of the MacBook Air, similar Windows-based laptops have seen widespread success, and it’s easy to understand why. With a slim form factor and a focus on flexibility, these highly portable laptops are excellent fits for most consumers. Now, Dell is offering up the sleek XPS 13 with a brand new eighth generation Core i7 CPU at a very reasonable asking price.
• Dell XPS 13 Eighth Generation Core i7 Quad-Core Laptop for $999.99 (List price: $1299.99)
On the inside, this laptop features a new eighth generation quad-core 1.8GHz Intel Core i7-8550U CPU that’s capable of boosting up to 4GHz. In addition, it has Intel UHD Graphics 620, 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM (1866MHz), a 256GB solid-state drive, Bluetooth 4.1, and 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support. And even though this model sports a gorgeous full HD InfinityEdge 1080p 13.3-inch touchscreen, it’s only six-tenths of an inch thick, and weighs in at just 2.7 pounds thanks to the CNC machined aluminum chassis and the carbon fiber composite palm rest.
While it’s an excellent fit for commuters or frequent flyers, it doesn’t sacrifice on the performance side of the equation. Everyday tasks like browsing the web and managing photos are smooth as silk. And with all-day battery life, you can effectively get work done even when you’re away from your desk for long stretches.
Windows 10 Home (64-bit) comes installed automatically, so you’ll have access to hundreds of thousands of apps in the Windows Store. And now that a more traditional user interface is back in action, Microsoft’s latest OS is a perfect fit for the full size keyboard and large touchpad included with the XPS 13.
