Engineers at Dell must be on aFast and Furious kick too! They've clearly decided to live life a quarter-mile at a time, and swaddled their XPS 13 with carbon fibre.
The composite-material base not only makes the XPS lighter, it actually adds rigidity and cuts down on the heat being transferred to your crotch. A big thank you to Dell for thinking about our crotches. Throw some Gorilla glass on the display, a soft matte finish to the touch surface, and a $US1000 price tag, and the Intel Core i5-powered Ultrabook our favourite of the show. [Dell]
