Dell have announced a Latitude 7000 series laptop that, in some configurations, will be an Ultrabook. It’s aimed at business and education, offers VPro and other business features, a large set of options and comes in 12-inch and 14-inch versions, unlike the similar, Ivy Bridge Ultrabook that only came in a 14-inch version.
Testing power usage on Haswell Ultrabooks is difficult due to the huge range of scenarios that the next generation Ultrabooks have. They’ll stream music for days and yet if you try to do too much gaming on them, you might be out of juice in as little as two hours. What we can say though, without a shadow of a doubt, is that the battery life on Haswell Ultrabooks, compared to Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks is hugely improved. We’ve got a Dell XPS 12 with Haswell here that proves it.
At Computex 2013, Dell is showing off their new Lenovo Yoga. Impressive as it may be, we see some early red flags.Ultrabook — it’s an impressive combination of many of the latest technologies. First is Haswell / 4th-gen Core, Intel’s latest processor, then there’s a high density 11-inch screen. On top of that, we’re looking at a convertible Ultrabook that flips just like the
Some Ultrabooks focus on getting things done and although the end result is often a little on the dull side you can sense that you’re moving faster than with some other laptops and Ultrabooks. The Dellis one of those Ultrabooks and we’ve just had the pleasure of a few weeks testing it. Full review below.; Overview review video at the bottom of this post.
Dell’sUltrabook, their first Ultrabook in the Latitude line, has been put through MIL-STD-810 testing by GCN and came through with flying colors.
The DellTouch is here for a review (with an Nvidia GT630M GPU) and out of the blue, a Samsung (with SSD) turned up today too so as is the law around these parts, I unboxed them for you. Actually I took 15 minutes to take a good look at both and, ahem, dropped the Samsung Series 5 in the process!
Dell’s XPS 13 has been available for a while and has been well received but a couple of features were not as well liked as others. Next week an updated version of the Ultrabook will be available which addresses one of the major perceived shortcomings and adds a few other related improvements as well.
The Dell XPS 12 has caught the attention of many people since it leaked last May but that could be attributable to it having one of the coolest design features we’ve ever seen on an Ultrabook. The flip-screen is impressive. But is it useful? And how good is the XPS 12 as a laptop? Read-on for the full review.
Here’s a 16 minute video of my findings. If you’re interested in Ultrabook Convertibles, take a look at this video because it covers some ergonomic issues as well as a detailed look at the Dell XPS 12. [Specs, images, videos and more info in our database here.]
As always, I welcome discussion below. What do you think of Ultrabook Convertibles and what device impresses you the most?
The Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook was well regarded as a first generation Ultrabook when it launched back in early 2012. Unfortunately Dell has done little to keep the XPS 13 competitive with second-generation Ultrabooks. Despite finally upgrading the internals to the latest Ivy Bridge processors from Intel, Dell left the 13.3-inch display with the same measly 1366×768 resolution — not unusable by any means, but not what you expect on a premium device. Now Dell is finally giving the XPS 13 a full 1080p display.
