Dell’s XPS 11 foldable Ultrabook for $1,000 and up

Posted: January 9, 2014 by Khobaib Monawwar in Technology

We first met the Dell XPS 11 back at Computex, but at the time Dell wasn’t ready to go into much detail on its Yoga-like foldable Ultrabook. At a press conference today in New York, however, we learned a little more about the XPS 11 — including the price. For starters — and this should surprise no one — the company’s offering Intel’s Haswell chips, and all-solid-state storage. We’re told the final product doesn’t look any different from the prototype we played with, which is to say it’s an amalgam of machined aluminum and carbon fiber, with a sheet ofGorilla Glass NBT covering the pixel-packed 2,560 x 1,440 “IGZO-based” touch display. That’s what you’ll be poking at when you’re in tablet mode, having folded the solid-surface keyboard back round the 180-degree hinge. Speaking of the keyboard, it will have 0.5mm travel and customizable feedback options. There will also be optional NFC and unspecified “voice options” available when the XPS 11 is finally up for grabs, but when that will be, and at what price, won’t be known for a few weeks yet. Look for it in November for $1,000 and up and in the meantime, we encourage you to revisit our hands-on from June.

Update: At last, Dell has announced pricing and availability for the XPS 11. We’ve just learned it will be available in November, starting at $1,000.
