Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook Full HD edition guns for MacBook Air

Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook Full HD edition guns for MacBook Air

This week the Dell XPS 13 has been re-introduced with a Full HD iteration, this version prompting the manufacturer to suggest that it's not just the MacBook Pro they're gunning for, it's the MacBook Air. This device has already been revealed and released in a 720p edition - we reviewed it right here on SlashGear, in fact - and here in 2013 the Dell team is showing off not just the Full HD version, but an XPS 13 Developer Edition as well, this time with the same display as the original (now called "standard display") but here based on Project Sputnik. And it's all about definition from here on in.

Dell is hoping to sway developers by creating the Sputnik project, a custom Ubuntu build designed for developers that will run smoothly on the XPS 13 Ultrabook. Dell is hoping to offer the stripped down build with standard developer tools, plus custom downloadable profiles.

Dell XPS 13 Ultraportable Review

Dell XPS 13 Ultraportable Review

Dell has a reputation, deserved or not, as being a reliable, economical and (not to put too fine a point on it) dull choice when it comes to PCs. There have been many attempts to change rectify this; the first in recent memory was coincidentally titled the XPS 13. Various incarnations of this machine and others like the Adamo line have again and again tried to break this perception, and while admirable efforts, they’ve fallen mostly on deaf ears. Enter the XPS 13 Ultrabook, which utilizes Intel’s vague set of standards to hopefully stand above the crowd.

Dell XPS 625 and XPS 630 now have liquid cooling

Dell XPS 625 and XPS 630 now have liquid cooling

Now this is "cool." Ugh, that was an awful pun. The Dell XPS 625 and XPS 630 have just gotten a liquid cooling option added to their specs in place of the standard fan-cooling option.

The Asetek liquid cooling system provides for a more even cooling of the processor and makes overclocking a much more versatile possibility for users that really want to get the most out of their systems.

This cooling option also reduces the noise, as there's no loud fan noise to contend with. Since both of these computers include the Intel Core 2 Extreme and are unlocked, making speed boosts much easier, having a stronger cooling option just makes sense. To add the Asetek liquid cooling option, it will cost you nearly $120 extra on top of the $899 and $1,099 priced XPS 625 and XPS 630 gaming towers. The new option will be available by the end of the month.
