It's an Android tablet, but nice

Dell impresses with beautiful XPS 13 laptop and Venue 8 7000 tablet




xps-13-4-1Dell hasn’t always been known to make the most lust-worthy devices, but the company has struck design gold with a couple of the new devices they’ve brought with them to CES this year. Introducing the XPS 13 laptop – an ultra-thin, ultra-portable, ultrabook with an optional super high resolution display, an aluminum body with just a touch of carbon fiber, and practically no bezels. Okay, there’s a little bezel, but we’re talking one tiny bezel here.

Spec wise, we’re looking at all options coming equipped with a next-generation Intel Core processor, which the company just announced at CES this week. There’s a model with a 1080p display that starts at a cool $800, while higher end model with the 4K display will cost you a more hefty $2,349. The lesser model went on sale today, while the 4K model ships soon.

Next up is the Venue 8 7000 tablet, an Android 5.0 tablet that has more than few tricks up its sleeves. For one thing, it is gorgeous, with an amazing aluminum body, and OLED (yes – OLED, like the ones found in LG’s new TVs) 8-inch display with an impressive 2560 x 1600 resolution. But what makes the Venue really special is its camera set up. Intel’s new RealSense technology is on board, marking the first tablet – and one of the first devices – to have the new, motion and depth tracking technology with Kinect-like utility.

The Venue 8 7000 starts at a very reasonable $400 and is also available in a higher end LTE model. If that perks your ears up, you can head on over to Dell’s website and get yours now.
