Dell’s Yoga competitor, the flexible XPS 11, has made its way into availability in the US and other select countries, with the refreshed XPS 13 also tagging along. As we mentioned in our hands-on, the 11.6-inch ultrabook’s keyboard folds all the way back to transform into a tablet with an impressive 2,560 x 1,440 IPS display. The updated XPS 13 laptop, on the other hand, has gained a touchscreen option, as well as new Haswell processors like those in the XPS 11. Both devices are now up for sale on Dell’s own site for at least $1,000, depending on specs. As always, the bigger the SSD storage space and the RAM, the more expensive it is. Almost all the laptops will ship with Windows 8.1 preinstalled, except the non-touch XPS 13 that’s keeping things dated with Windows 7 Home Premium. If you like your PC hardware a little cheaper (or costlier), the company’s also releasing the OptiPlex 3020 desktop ($499) and the Precision M3800 business laptop ($1,799). For a reminder of the XPS 11’s acrobatic ways, we’ve added our hands-on video right after the break.
