Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook gets 1080p display option

Dell's 13in XPS 13 Ultrabook will soon be available to buy with a Full HD 1,920x1,080 resolution display. The laptop, which originally shipped with a 1,366x768 screen, has been given the upgrade due to customer demand.

The all-metal laptop is the closest thing we've found to a MacBook Air, and it comes well equipped - dual-core Intel processors, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD put it firmly at the top end of Intel's Ultrabook specification.

Announced at CES in January, the new model is already available to order through Dell's US website and will soon be coming to the UK. However, it looks like potential customers will have to pay a significant premium for those extra pixels.

US customers pay $999 for the entry-level 720p model, but must spend $1,400 for the HD version - and that's just with an Intel Core i5-3337U processor. Anyone wanting the faster Core i7-3537U CPU will have to pay $1,600. Considering UK prices start at £1,079, it looks like we'll be paying even more when the new models go on sale later this month.

We were impressed with the XPS 13 when we reviewed it last year, and expect a 1080p model to be even more desirable, although we aren't sure it can justify such a high price in light of touch-enabled Ultrabooks from other manufacturers. We'll know for sure when it launches in the next few weeks.
