So today, we are very happy to see the rest of the family coming to the market, namely the XPS 14 and XPS 15 laptops. Both units are powered by a 3rd generation Intel Core i5-3317U processor (3M cache and up to 2.6 GHz. Optionally users can select the Core i7/4M cache/3.0 GHz), are less than an inch thick and feature the very elegant silver-colored machined aluminum chassis that we discovered at CES. The Dell XPS 14 features a 14” HD WLED 1600×900 display (400 nits) while the XPS 15 model gets a 15.6” WLED 1920×1080 display (350 nits), both with edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass.
As usual with Dell, you can select many different configurations options. The XPS 14 features up to 500 GB HDD or 512 GB SSD drive, up to 8GB DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M 1GB GDDR5 graphics, backlit and spill-resistant keyboard, two USB 3.0 port (including one with PowerShare), mini DisplayPort, HDMI out, Ethernet port, 3-in-1 card reader, audio jack, mini Kensington lock.
The XPS 15 has more powerful configuration options: in terms of storage, you can get up to 1TB 5400rpm hard drive + 128GB mSATA SSD, up to 16GB of DDR3 1600 MHz, an NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M with 2GB of GDDR5 memory. On both models, keyboards and connectivity features are similar.
