Not so very long ago, there was just one Ultrabook on the market, and it didn't run Windows, nor did it go under that Intel-invented moniker: the MacBook Air. Now we've covered Ultrabooks (13.3" super thin and light notebooks with Intel Core i Sandy Bridge CPUs and SSD drives) from several manufacturers. The Dell XPS 13 is late to join the Ultrabook party that started around the holiday 2011 season, but if you haven't yet picked up one of these svelte yet powerful machines, you'll be glad you waited to see what Dell brings to the table.
The $999, 3 lb. Dell XPS 13 is clad in completely premium materials like aluminum, carbon fiber and Gorillla Glass, and that goodness continues inside with a very fast SATA 3 Samsung SSD drive, dual band Intel WiFi with WiDi wireless display and Intel Core i5 and i7 options.
