Dell has launched its XPS 13 Ultrabook in the UAE, the device features a 13-inch screen contained in an 11-inch form factor and weighs 1.38 kilogrammes.

The device, which will retail at AED4,899 with an Intel Core i5 processor, is designed for both business and personal use.

The XPS 13 features Gorilla Glass and a spill-resistant keyboard, as well as a carbon fibre base, designed to make it more rugged.

"The increasing mobility of professionals and the design-savvy, entrepreneurial market within the Middle East make the Dell XPS 13 - a system that is unlike anything else on the market today - an extremely attractive proposition," Pearce Clune, marketing director, EMEA Product Strategy. "The XPS 13 delivers both performance and sleek design while crossing the realm between work and play, packing powerful technology into a small, portable package. It's the ultimate mobile device for a highly-connected region like the Middle East."

The XPS 13 has a minimum five hour battery life, with a maximum of eight hours and is one of the first systems to feature Intel Smart Connect Technology, which is designed to keep content consistently updated. A solid state drive and Intel Rapid Start Technology allow the XPS 13 to boot in seconds providing almost instant access, saving time and battery life.

"Intel understands that consumers in this region require fast, reliable access to new content, which is why we are delighted to partner with Dell on delivering the new XPS 13 to the wider Middle East," said Khaldoun Aboul-Saoud, regional manager for Markets Development, Intel.  "The increasingly blurred line between business and home technology use and the trend within the Middle East which sees tens of thousands of professionals taking mobile devices with them for work and play around the region make the new XPS 13, with its proven Intel technology, an ideal fit for customers here."
