Slated to hit stores, in the US at least, by the end of the month, this upgrade will hope to combat the negative reviews surrounding the 1,366 x 768 resolution screen on the original XPS 13 model which was released late last year.
While the screen and lack of SD card reader were criticised, the XPS 13 won praise for its premium styling, strong performance and light weight. It packed top specs too, including an Intel Core i7 processor and Gorilla Glass making it the Ultrabook of choice for many.
Until now Apple has had little opposition to the Retina display, which now features on both a 13inch and 15inch version of the MacBook Pro. We at T3 love the 2560 x 1600 and 2880 x 1800 screens on those devices, but competition to the crown is always healthy.
No release date or price in the UK have been confirmed as of yet. The original version currently sells for around £1,300, so with the updated 1080p screen it will probably match the MacBook Pro in price as well.
