Dell XPS 13
Dell XPS 13 Review
This new Dell XPS 13 is the first great laptop of 2015, but it owes that title more to a smart design revamp than Intel’s new processors.
LAS VEGAS — How low can you go? This CES, we’ve already seen the world’s lightest 13-inch laptop in Lenovo’s LaVie Z, and now Dell has introduced what could be the smallest. The company’s new XPS 13 stuffs a 13.3-inch screen into a chassis the size of an 11-inch notebook. Starting at $799, the new Dell XPS 13 comes with an SSD and 1080p screen standard.
At 12 x 7.9 x 0.59 inches ( 304 x 200 x 15 mm), the Dell XPS 13 is about the same size as Apple’s 11-inch MacBook Air (11.8 x 7.6 x 0.68 inches) and much smaller than the 13-inch Air ( 12.8 x 9 x 0.68 inches). The Dell notebook isn’t the lightest one on the market, but it’s pretty svelte at 2.6 pounds (for the 1080p version) and 2.8 pounds with the optional WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) display.

In addition to its touch screen, which is available in either FHD or WQHD resolution, the XPS 13 comes standard with an Intel 5th Generation Core Series processor, an SSD and Windows 8.1.
I had a chance to go hands-on with the XPS 13 at Dell’s launch event and was more impressed with the notebook’s premium look than just its size. The screen itself is an engineering marvel, with the smallest laptop bezel ever, measuring just 5mm on either side of the screen.
