U.S. PC-maker Dell has refreshed its XPS 13-series laptops in India with faster processors and sharper displays in a lighter and thinner form-factor. The devices were announced last August and are now powered by Intel’s 8th-generation Core processors. All of them run Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Home out-of-the-box. Prices start at a hefty Rs. 84,590 for the base version and goes up to a whopping Rs. 1,48,990 for the top-end model.
The main design feature of the lineup is the borderless InfinityEdge display that comes with touch support in the higher-end models. The entire lineup is made out of machined aluminum and carbon fiber, and the touch-screen models come with Corning Gorilla Glass NBT. The devices are already available for purchase on Dell’s official Indian webstore, and will also be available at Dell Exclusive Stores, Croma and Reliance Digital and going forward. The colors on offer include silver and rose gold.
