Dell on Monday launched the latest version of its popular XPS 13 laptop in India. Priced starting at Rs. 84,590, the Dell XPS 13 is now available for purchase via the Dell India website, Dell exclusive stores, Croma, and Reliance Digital. The biggest highlight of the laptop is its ‘virtually borderless’ InfinityEdge display that is also available in multi-touch and QHD+ options. The lightweight laptop weighs as little as 1.2kg, and is quite sleek too, with dimensions of 9-15x304x200mm. The laptop also bears Waves MaxxAudio Pro-tuned stereo speakers (1-watt each). All the Dell XPS 13 models launched run Windows 10.
The Dell XPS is made with machined aluminium, carbon fibre, and Corning Gorilla Glass NBT (on touchscreen versions). To recall, the refreshed variant of the laptop was launched in August this year. Commenting on the launch, Alen Joe Jose, Product Marketing Director, Consumer & Small Business, Dell, India said, “The XPS brand is legendary. From innovations in design philosophy using smarter materials to performance-driven sleek design construction, the new XPS 13 is an absolute delight.
