Windows 8 970 Published by

InformationWeek posted a story that Dell on Monday formally launched a pair of Ultrabook laptops with more than enough performance to handle Microsoft's forthcoming Windows 8 operating system.

The XPS 14 and XPS 15 both offer stylish, aluminum casing, Corning Gorilla Glass to the edges, and third-generation Intel Core chip technologies. Dell is aiming the former at road warriors who value portability over heavy-duty graphics and data crunching capabilities. The latter, at almost six pounds, is more of a desktop replacement.

"The XPS 14 and 15 laptops offer powerful performance, thoughtful design, and superb user experience, along with enterprise-friendly features so you can use them for work and play,"' said Sam Burd, president of Dell's personal computing group, in a statement.
