Ultimate portability meets Dell’s legendary reliability and service in the new Dell XPS13 Ultrabook from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC). Featuring a rugged machined aluminium frame, Solid State Drive (SSD), carbon fibre base and 13” high definition Gorilla Glass screen all packed into an ultra-compact form factor, this is one machine built to withstand the knocks of life on the go. Combined with superior specifications, the latest generation of Intel processors and Dell’s legendary next business day warranty, the XPS13 is the ultimate business tool for the mobile workforce.

“Crafted out of light, durable materials, measuring only 6 millimetres at its thinnest point and weighing in at just 1.36 kilogram, the XPS13 is stylishly designed to go from the office to the road to the boardroom with ease. But this Ultrabook is not just a pretty face. It incorporates powerful features cunningly concealed in its deceptively small 13” form factor,” says Nitesh Devanand, Dell Consumer Product Specialist at DCC.

“Intel Rapid Start offers practically instantaneous start-up, while Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and Windows 7 operating system deliver all of the processing power you need for multi-tasking on the go. Intel high definition (HD) 3000 graphics and a high definition widescreen deliver crystal clear viewing, complemented by high definition audio, perfect for delivering powerful presentations on the go. It works like magic, but it’s not magic – just smart design,” he adds.

The Dell Ultrabook XPS13 incorporates a 4 gigabyte (GB) DDR3 on-board memory, a 128GB or 256GB SSD, Bluetooth and Wireless N connectivity with Intel Smart Connect Technology and USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports. A low profile, spill resistant, backlit chiclet keyboard and glass touchpad with multi-gestural support provide easy, intuitive input, and a built-in 1.3 mexapixel HD webcam with dual array digital microphones allows for instant video and voice chat capability.

“The XPS13 not only packs a host of features, but comes standard with productivity enhancing software including WebCam Central, Skype, Adobe Reader 10, Microsoft Office Starter, Dell DataSafe and McAfee SecurityCenter trial version. It is a powerful, ultra-portable notebook that is ideal for both the small to medium and corporate market, with the good looks and style that fit in at any business occasion,” Devanand concludes.

The Dell Ultrabook XPS13 is available immediately at a recommended retail price of R15 999.00 including V.A.T. for the Intel Core i5 and R19 999.00 including V.A.T. for the Core i7 model.
