Dell Australia has whipped the veil from its latest – and possibly snazziest – ultrabook model, dubbed the XPS 13, and aimed at consumers.
Plainly designed – like most ultrabooks – after a long, close look at Apple’s hot-selling MacBook Air, the Dell machine manages to cram its 13-inch screen into a frame that is claimed to be about the size of some 11-inch ultrabooks, thanks to what it describes as a “razor-thin” bezel”. (At 31 by 20.5cm, it is however slightly larger than the MacBook Air at 30 by 19.2cm).

In Australia it will sell for a recommended $1199, $300 less than a similarly equipped 13-inch MacBook Air. (There’s also an 11-inch MacBook Air for $1099).

Dell is also offering an XPS with a more powerful i7 processor at $1499.
