Dell today added a pair of new notebook models to its flagship XPS brand, one of which is a 14-inch Ultrabook (XPS 14) and the other a 15-inch laptop (XPS 15). As one would expect, both models are equipped with 3rd Generation Intel Core processor options (Ivy Bridge), and both bring new digs to the mobile party with edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass and a machined aluminum finish precision cut from a single block of aluminum.
The Dell XPS line has always done a decent job of offering above average mobile performance for a fair price, however the current generation is growing a bit long in the tooth. Dell fans on the hunt for a new 14” or 15” notebook haven’t had many options, but a set of leaked photos and specifications have emerged for the XPS 14 and XPS 15.
It's still winter, but that hasn't stopped Dell from a little bit of spring cleaning as it reshuffles its notebook line. Earlier in the month, Dell axed its Adamo notebook, the OEM's answer to Apple's MacBook Air. Now it's the company's four month old XPS 14's turn to sit on the chopping block, even though Dell maintains it was selling well. Hit the jump to find out Dell's rationale.
