SPX is 20.5mm thick and weighs 2 kg, and it fits the criteria that Intel sets for Ultrabook. Of course, to have high mobility, it has to abandon the optical disk. XPS is equipped with 1,600 x 900 resolution screen, Waves MaxxAusio 4 sound system, three-in-one card reader, USB 3.0 mini port and HDMI. Users can add GPU NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M, maximum 8GB RAM, SSD 512GB if they wish. In terms of connection, Dell enables mobile Internet, including optimizations on Intel 6150 WLAN/WiMax/WiDi Combo, Dell Wireless 5630 EVDO/HSPA or Dell Wireless 5560 HSPA+ internet cards. However, the most prominent feature may refer to battery life. Dell revealed that the $1,999 model using SSD and no 3G can run for 11 hours and 21 minutes in one charge.
