Dell XPS 13 Non-Touch Laptop
In looking at different versions of the Dell XPS 13, the non-touch model with 8GB of memory is probably the most ideal overall choice. It lacks any dedicated video memory but has an Intel 6th Generation i5 processor and a 128GB solid state drive for decent overall storage and performance. There's another non-touch model available with just 4GB of memory and an i3 CPU, but 8GB of RAM and the i5 chip are definitely worth the slightly higher price tag. If you want a touch-sensitive display, there are a couple models available of this same ultrabook with a touchscreen, and they also offer additional storage and a faster CPU if you want even better performance. In terms of weight and profile, this ultrabook is just 0.6 inches high when closed and weighs only 2.7 pounds.The touchscreen makes it weigh closer to three pounds, so keep this in mind if portability is a major priority for you.
