Dell XPS 13 Philippine Launch
Dell’s highly anticipated, award-winning XPS 13 laptop – widely acclaimed for its superb craftsmanship, thoughtful design and durability – is now available in the Philippines. Dell has seen ‘strong demand’ for the system ever since it was first announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, and early buzz about the unit – which features uncompromising performance, extended battery life and Intel Rapid Start and Smart Connect Technology – has been overwhelmingly positive: CNET referred to it as the first “Very Important Laptop” of 2012. PC World proclaimed, “It may be the best laptop Dell’s made in years” and Details magazine raved about its “sturdy!” design.
“We’re seeing strong consumer and business demand for the new XPS 13 – a system that is unlike anything else on the market today,” said Christopher Papa, Dell Philippines – Country Manager. “The XPS 13 demands attention, crossing the realm between work and play, packing powerful technology into a small, portable package and delivering enterprise-friendly protection and security. It’s the ultimate mobile device.”
Underscoring its business-ready features, Alvin Patrick Go, product manager of Dell Philippines said, “The uncompromising XPS 13 offers professionals the power to connect, collaborate and innovate with unique features and services – like Dell ProSupport and Trusted Platform Module – that satisfy the needs of enterprise IT departments.”
Weighing less than 3 pounds, the XPS 13 Ultrabook cleverly fits leading-edge craftsmanship, high performance computing, and thoughtful design into what is one of the most compact 13-inch products in its class. With its stunning razor-thin bezel, the XPS 13 maintains a footprint similar to an 11-inch product and features bonded Corning® Gorilla® Glass for exceptional durability; a unique, cool-to-the-touch carbon fiber base; and full-size, backlit keyboard for utmost productivity.
The XPS 13 is one of the first systems with Intel® Smart Connect Technology, which keeps 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.
The XPS 13 comes standard with our Premier Service Package which includes In-Home Service after Remote Diagnosis and one year of priority user support, and one year of Complete Cover warranty.

• Trusted Platform Module (TPM) offers user and machine security with BitLocker Data Encryption for network-based client computing.
