Nowadays, a lot of people are using their laptops for work, meaning that their device need to be very compact and easy to carry, but powerful in the same time, if they need to handle some demanding tasks, like graphic design, rendering or music production. Fortunately, there are a couple of models on the market meeting all these requirements and the Dell XPS XPS9343-7273SLV is one of them.
Despite its reduced size, it’s powered by a 5th Gen Intel Core i7-5500U processor, clocked at 3.0 GHz, with the Turbo Boost technology and 4 MB of cache. Also, it has 8 GB of DDR3L memory, making multitasking easier than ever, while the integrated Intel HD Graphics 5500 card provides clear images and it allows you to connect the laptop to a bigger display, using the mini DisplayPort.
The solid state drive, with a storage capacity of 256 GB is enough for keeping all your phoros, music, video and other media, but unfortunately, there’s no optical drive. So, if your drive fills up, you can us a microSD card, for example, or a flash memory stick for storing some files, using the 3-in-1 media reader or one of the two USB 3.0 ports.
The Dell XPS XPS9343-7273SLV comes with a built-in high-speed Dell Wireless 1560 LAN, allosing you to connect to the web, while a Bluetooth 4.0 interface, perfect for pairing the laptop with compatible devices, completes the connectivity suite.
As for the display, it has a 13.3″ QHD+ touch-screen panel, with the UltraSharp technology. The resolution is 3200 x 1800 pixels, while an incredibly slim bezel is surrounding it. Above Dell XPS XPS9343-7273SLV’s display, we can find a 720p webcam, just perfect for video conferences or keeping in touch with your friends.
In the package you will also find a 4-cell lithium-ion battery, able of providing an impressive amount of functionality hours. We should also mention the MaxxAudio technology, which makes this laptop able of delivering a high-quality audio experience.
In terms of design, the Dell XPS XPS9343-7273SLV is one of the best looking ultrabooks of the moment, if you ask us. It weighs 2.8 lbs and it measures just 0.6″ in thickness, being as thick as one of your notebooks. On the outside, it has a nice metallic silver finish, while the keyboard comes in a matte black. Considering that it’s backlit, it will definitely look very good during the night.
As you can see, despite being a compact model, the Dell XPS XPS9343-7273SLV features an impressive specs list. Of course, the price is also impressive, as it’s available for $1499.99, with a pre-installed copy of Windows 8.1 64-bit and a Microsoft Office trial included. We’re not surprised, as most of Dell’s XPS models are far from being affordable, but the combination between its high-end specs and this beautiful design is definitely worth the money if you ask .
