Dell has changes in store for two early Windows 8 PCs

It's been less than three months since the launch of Windows 8, but at least one PC maker is going back and making a few changes to two of its introductory Windows 8 touchscreen products. Dell announced this week that one of the changes involves its business-themed tablet the Latitude 10.

Previously, the 10 inch tablet sold for $599. Today, Dell's blog announces that it is now selling what it calls the Latitude 10 Essentials. The price for the 64 GB version is $579 and is on sale now. Dell will also sell a 32 GB version later this year for $499. Other changes in these new models include removing support for the active Wacom stylus and replacing the removable battery for one that is sealed inside the tablet.

Dell has also gone back and made a change to its XPS 13 convertible notebook-tablet. Engadget reports that Dell will sell a version of the XPS 13 later in January that will have a big boost in its screen resolution, from 1366x768 to 1920x1080. That version will also see a boost in the screen's color gamut from 45 percent to 72 percent. However, it will be more expensive. Dell will sell the 1080p version of the XPS 13 for $1,299 compared to $999 for the current version.
