  • As the market continues to saturate with good laptops at low prices, it becomes harder and harder for an XPS to shine. Yes, it is a brilliantly build device, which utilizes its hardware at its best and provides security features, unseen on cheap laptops...

  • The Dell XPS 13 is a great all-around clamshell laptop, with a beautiful design and a small footprint. My biggest complaints are that there's no IR camera - particularly that Dell gave us facial recognition and then took it away - and there's no USB Type-...

  • Abstract:  Announced at CES this year, Dell's new XPS 13 finally puts the webcam where it belongs, above the display. Moreover, the company shrunk down the camera sensor, so it didn't have to compromise on the immersive experience that's provided by narrow bezels.T...

  • Dell has fixed this laptop's only remaining serious flaw, designing a super-slim 2mm webcam to fit into the thin screen bezel. Optional colors look great, as does the 4K touchscreen. Excellent keyboard, and decent battery life for a 4K laptop
  • The entry level configuration, while well-priced, cuts too many corners. I don't love the woven texture on the wrist rest
  • It's nearly impossible to find anything to dislike about this 13-inch slim powerhouse, at least in the pricey high-end configuration tested here...

  • Opting for the Core i7 configuration will bring an average performance boost of only 10 percent over the Core i5 configuration for $250 more. This wouldn't have been so bad if Dell had also doubled the RAM and/or storage between the two price points, but...
