“Perhaps you want to feel like a winner. In that case, you might want Dell’s new Gold edition XPS 13,” said DigitalTrends, who previewed the newly announced, fashion-forward gold edition XPS 13 notebook at #CES2016. The official launch of the gold XPS 13 took place last night, during New York Fashion Week, where Dell and Microsoft partnered with renowned New York design house Opening Ceremony to add a golden touch to Opening Ceremony’s runway show and official after-party.

The gold XPS is packed with all of the features that won the XPS 13 20 ‘Best of 2015’ awards, including ‘Computer of the Year’ by Yahoo! Tech – the smallest 13-inch laptop on the planet, virtually borderless InfinityEdge display, the longest battery life of any 13-inch laptop* and featuring Microsoft’s Windows 10. Inspired by this gold rush of awards, we are offering an i7/8 GB/256 PCIe/UltraSharp Quad HD+ display configuration for the gold XPS 13 that features an updated Intel Iris graphics option that brings 40 percent more performance than HD graphics. The gold XPS 13 is now available on Dell.com for $1699.99.

Backstage at the runway show, fashion editors, models and VIP influencers sipped and snacked on treats in an exclusive gold-themed Dell Lounge viewing the Opening Ceremony Fall Winter 2016 Lookbook on gold XPS notebooks. The thousands of guests attending the two events were greeted and checked-in on gold-covered Dell tablets by Dell Ambassadors decked out in one-time-only, Opening Ceremony designed gold-themed outfits. Attendees were quick to take advantage of the Smilebooth powered by XPS and shared their photos on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and more.

Michelle Madsen, Los Angeles-based fashion blogger of TAKEAIM, reported from the show:

“It was really cool to see the new gold Dell XPS at tonight's Opening Ceremony show. It was great to see a tech brand on the ground at New York Fashion Week and I'm excited to try out my new gold laptop!"

Dell was pleased to work alongside our longtime partner Microsoft to bring these events to life and help designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon showcase their remarkable collection.

The gold XPS 13 allows our fans to accessorize with the most cutting-edge, high-style tech.
