Dell launches 256GB solid-state drives for XPS

The latest solid-state drive for the company's laptop range offers increased capacity at a low cost

Dell has increased the capacity of the solid-state drives on its range of XPS laptops, but not the price — at least as far as the US is concerned.

On Saturday a Samsung-manufactured 256GB SSD appeared on Dell's US website as an option for the XPS M1330 and M1730 laptops. The SSD is available as an upgrade, at a $400 (£270) premium, to the base specifications of those laptops.

Before the option of a 256GB SSD was made available, the largest SSD a customer could order as an upgrade for the XPS machines was 128GB in capacity. Upgrading to the 128GB SSD also cost $400.

ZDNet UK has asked Dell if and when the 256GB SSD option will be made available to UK customers, but had not received a reply at the time of writing.
