Other features of the Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition laptop include connectivity for 802.11ac WiFi, as well as a backlit keyboard and a fairly powerful 52h rechargeable battery. Dell explains :
“Not only is the XPS 13 small, it’s also stunningly thin to make it an ideal mobile companion. At only 9-15mm thick and starting at only 2.6 pounds (1.18kg), it is easy to stick in your purse or bag while you are on the go.
See content clearly from almost any angle with an IGZO2 IPS panel, providing a wide viewing angle of up to 170°. Enjoy the vibrant screen together with your friends. The screen is brilliant enough to watch movies in sunlight without missing the details. At 400-nit, it’s up to 100% brighter than a typical panel (200-nit) for a great view even outside. With a high color gamut of 72% and a high contrast ratio of 1000:1, more colors are represented so you can see the brightest brights and the darkest darks.
The optional touch display lets you interact with your technology (phone, tablet and laptop) the same way. Enjoy your apps and OS at your fingertips.”
