Dell’s New XPS 15 Is the Smallest 15-Inch Laptop Ever Made – Yahoo Tech
Pricing starts at $1,000. That’ll snag you most of the features mentioned aside from the 4K display, so it’s a solid deal.
The XPS 13 continues the trend of lightweight but powerful hardware, featuring any CPU you could wish for. Buyers can opt for an entry level i3-6100U, running at up to 2.3GHz, or the more performance focused i7-6500. Coming in January, there will be a 6600U running at up to 3.4GHz option too.
Memory wise, if you don’t need much you can opt for just 4GB, though there is space for up to 16GB of, alongside as much as a terabyte of SSD storage. While the base model with 128GB SSD will have a SATA drive, the larger drive options will connect over PCI Express.

Display options include a base 1080p unit or a QHD+ 3,200 x 1,800 screen. These are unchanged from earlier models. Both utilize “InfinityEdge” design, which is a fancy way to say they have extremely thin bezels.
Despite its powerful hardware, Dell claims that this is the smallest 13 inch laptop in the world, measuring just 15mm thick at its widest point and weighing in at just 2.7lbs. It still manages to cram a 56 watt hour battery in there, though. That’s a 4 watt upgrade over the original, which debuted at the beginning of 2015. The large capacity battery is said to give the XPS 13 as much as 18 hours of battery life on a single charge. Its price starts at $800.
