Dell refreshes the XPS 13 and 15 with Haswell, the 15 has a 3,200 x 1,800 display

Dell’s XPS 11 might be all new and foldable, but the company hasn’t forgotten its old workhorses, the XPS 13 and 15, both of which are receiving refreshes. Having already received a sharper display option earlier this year, the XPS 13 is now getting a 1080p touchscreen covered in Gorilla Glass NBT. And — surprise, surprise — Intel’s Haswell processors (Core i3 / i5 / i7) are now part of the package, with battery life rated at up to 10 hours. As you’d expect too, the graphics have also received a bump: moving to Haswell also means stepping up to Intel’s HD 4400 chipset.

The XPS 15 (pictured above) has received an even more dramatic upgrade: it now sports a seriously pixel-dense 3,200 x 1,800 touch display “based on IGZO technology.” You have the option of either Core i5 or i7 Haswell chips, “next-gen” NVIDIA graphics and up to 1TB of hard drive space, along with a 32GB SSD. You could just opt for a single 512GB solid-state drive instead, budget permitting, and you’ll also have a choice of “voice and NFC options” (not that Dell was very specific about the voice part). The XPS 15 will arrive first, on October 15th, with a starting price of $1,500 (hey, 3,200 x 1,800 displays don’t come cheap). If it’s the XPS 13 you’re after, that will go on sale sometime in November, starting at $1,000.
