The popularity of Ultrabooks is quite evident since it first burst into the scene. There was the MacBook Air followed by the ASUS Zenbook UX31. Now comes Dell’s XPS 13.

The latter only weighs at 2.29 pounds and has a tapered design from .71 to .24 inches. It is pegged at $999 with an aluminum lid and carbon fiber chassis. Add to that its 13-inch screen and it certainly is one helluva gadget.

The entry level version comes with an i5 Core processor with a 128GB SSD and 4GB ram and a backlit keyboard. It is upgradeable to a 256SSD and i7 processor. It has a 300 nit, 1366×768 Gorilla Glass display, Intel HD 3000 graphics, Bluetooth 3.0 and the Smart Connect and Rapid Start both Intel technologies.

Dell is planning to release their Ultrabooks by February both consumer and business channels.

The XPS 13 also supports both 3.0 and 2.0 Bluetooth technology. It has a Mini Display Port, an audio jack and a 1.3 MP webcam. But just like the ASUS Zenbook, the XPS 13 doesn’t have an HDMI and no has no memory card slot.

Which makes us ask, if the MacBook Air, which is thinner than the XPS 13, has an SD card slot, why then does the latter don’t have any built in it?
