Exceptionally well made 13-inch laptop XPS 13 from Dell
The virtually borderless InfinityEdge display maximizes screen space by squeezing a 13-inch display in an 11-inch frame. With a bezel only 5.2 mm thin, weighing in at only 2.7 pounds and measuring a super slim 9-15 mm, the XPS 13 is exceptionally thin and light. The device has 6th Gen Intel Core processors and the latest Intel HD graphics. Boot and resume in seconds with the latest solid state drives now with faster PCIe options up to 1TB6, and up to 16GB6 of memory.
The XPS 13 is cut with precision from a single block of aluminum for a sturdy, durable chassis in a beautiful design. The Corning Gorilla Glass NBT QHD+ display option is up to 10 times more scratch resistant than soda lime glass. The palm rest is made from carbon fiber. It's strong and thin like aluminum, but lighter and cooler to the touch. The precision touch pad prevents jumping and floating cursors, while Accidental Activation Prevention puts a stop to unintentional clicks.
The XPS 13 will make any hard-typing user happy: its backlit keyboard is fast and responsive and the touchpad responds accurately to all inputs. The bottom of the XPS 13 has two raised rubber bumpers that run the width of the notebook and they keep the aluminum from getting scratched and provide enough of air to keep the device cool. Thunderbolt 3 multi-use port allows you to charge your laptop, connect to multiple devices including support for up to two 4K displays and data transfers up to 40Gbps, 8 times that of a USB 3.0.
Advanced docking is f eaturing a single-cable connection for power, Ethernet, audio and video. The display features UltraSharp QHD+ resolution 3200x1800. An optional upgrade gives you eye-popping detail with 5.7 million pixels (276 ppi). It is easy to see content clearly from nearly every angle with the IGZO IPS panel thanks to a wide viewing angle of up to 170°. The Dell XPS 13 is one of those devices for which we don't ask what's the price: this is extremely well make device, with blazing speed and excellent screen. ■
