As IFA 2018 gears up to open its doors in Berlin this week, Dell is ready to roll with a slew of refreshed laptops. In addition to the new Inspiron 7000 and 5000 2-in-1 update, Dell is also showing its XPS 13 lineup a little love, including a lower barrier of entry for the standard XPS 13.
First thing's first: You'll now be able to pick up an XPS 13 for a little less money than before. The laptop can now be equipped with an Intel Core i3 processor, giving it a new entry point and a lower price tag for those willing to take the step down from a Core i5. As for pricing and availability, the new Core i3 model is now available starting at $899.
Moving on to the 2-in-1 variant of the XPS 13, Dell has taken on Intel's newest 8th Gen Core Y processors, with options ranging from the i5-8200Y up to the i7-8500Y. That's in combinations with up to 16GB of RAM, along with FHD and QHD touch displays at 13.3 inches.
The new chips also provide for better battery life, reaching estimates of up to 15 hours on a single charge. That's in addition to a fanless design, which has cut down on the device's thickness.
The refreshed XPS 13 2-in-1 will be available on September 11 at a starting price of $999.99.
