Dell XPS 15 Ultrabook 3200×1800 pixels tops Apple’s retina MacBook Pro

Stunning Dell XPS 15 3200 x 1800 pixels Ultrabook

Dell XPS 15 unveiled, perhaps one of the best Windows 8.1 Ultrabook we’ll see this year. In a new attempt to reinvent the PC, Dell is introducing a promising super high-resolution Ultrabook featuring a stunning 3200×1800 pixels touchscreen display, super wide touchpad, and a body casted from aluminum, carbon fiber and magnesium alloy.

Just by the design and screen resolution the Dell XPS 15 is a dream Ultrabook that tops Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro, which features a lower 2880×1800 pixels screen resolution, and there is a lot more. This machine is powerful, under the hood you’ll find a 2.2GHz Core i7 Haswell processor, Nvidia GeForce GT 750 graphics, 512GB of Solid-State Drive, 16GB of RAM, a ridiculous battery that last 13 hours, and all on a package that only weighs 4.4 pounds and measures 18 mm to its thickest point.

As most Ultrabooks these days, including Apple’s Macbook Pro, Dell’s newest 15.6-inch Windows 8.1 system, doesn’t include a DVD drive. This doesn’t just helps to reduce the overall weight, but allows the company to shrink the device 5 mm, when compare to the previous model one year ago.

So far everything sounds wonderful, but… (of course there is but) it all comes down to the price. Dell’s new XPS 15 is expensive, the base model will cost $1,499 and it’ll only feature an Intel Core i5 processor, Intel discrete graphics, a 1920×1080 pixels screen resolution, less powerful battery, and a mix of mSATA SSD with traditional hard drive for storage.

If money is not a problem, you’ll be able to get your hands on one XPS 15 on October 18th.

The now privately owned computer maker also unveiled two additional models: The XPS 13, featuring a 4th-generation Core i7 processor, Intel HD 4400 graphics, and 10.5 hours of battery life or so the company claims. This Windows device also has a edge-to-edge display that fits perfectly into an 11-inch laptop. All on a package that weighs 2.99 pounds.

Finally, there is the XPS 11, which is a Ultrabook that converts into a tablet. Although, this device doesn’t measure to the XPS 15 performance, it does feature a Quad HD 2560×1440 pixels touchscreen display, and it also comes with a backlit keyboard.

Both Dell XPS 13 and XPS 11 will ship in November with a suggested price of $999.99. And out of the three Windows 8.1 devices only the XPS 11 will come with a touch-enabled display, for the other two models touch is optional.
