Nothing In The Back
There are no ports on the front or back edges of the Dell XPS 13, giving it a cleaner, less cluttered appearance. We also favor the absence of rear-panel ports because the connectors tend to be stressed more when the unit is tilted or moved around. The Dell XPS 13 is available with Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, with Intel HD 3000 graphics starting at $999, including Windows 7 Home Premium, Wi-Fi a/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, 4 GB DDR3 1,333MHz SDRAM, backlit keyboard, 128- or 256-GB SSD, HD audio, stereo speakers, 1.3-megapixel Webcam, 100 GB of cloud storage and a 12-month Skype Premium subscription. Dell's Ultrabook also is among the very first to implement Intel's Smart Connect Technology, which updates content even when the system is asleep.
