1. Design

The first thing you notice about the latest Dell XPS 13 is its design, which some have referred to as groundbreaking. It’s a 13-inch laptop that is slimmer and more impressive looking than most Dell laptops created to date.

The XPS 13 is available in black and white, and, starting from this year, in rose gold colour options. The laptop features plastic, glass, and aluminium that together create the ultimate luxury feel and look of the device. The only complaint users may have about the design is the unconventional web camera placement on the lower left part of the display.

Another feature of the Dell XPS 13 laptop is its amazingly low weight – despite its reliable design and admirable performance, the device weighs just 1.21kg, which makes it super easy to take your laptop with you to work, vacation, or anywhere you need your computer.

2. Display

An essential part of any Dell XPS 13 review is the design characteristics, and it’s safe to say that the device’s display won’t disappoint the buyers. Starting from 2018, the XPS 13 has an optional 4K Ultra HD resolution and an ultra glossy screen with exceptional brightness and overall viewing experience.

3. Hardware

The latest Dell XPS laptop comes in variety of configurations that allow every customer to find a device that completely matches their needs and budget. The most advanced and, therefore, expensive version of the device has the following Dell XPS 13 specs:

  • 1.8GHz Intel Core CPU
  • 16GB DDR3 RAM
  • Intel UHD Graphics 620
  • 1TB of storage
  • 2 USB-C ports + 1 USB-C 3.1 port
  • Micro SD card reader

With these characteristics, there is no doubt that the Dell XPS 13 will deliver admirable performance no matter which challenge you put it through. This laptop is likely to become a favourite for video editors, designers, gamers, and anyone requires top-notch laptop performance.

Below the power button there is a fingerprint scanner, which ensures an extra layer of protection for your valuable data. The laptop also sports improved internal cooling, which preserves the hardware of the device and makes it more comfortable to work with.

4. Battery

Buyers today are looking for an autonomous laptop and won’t settle for a device whose battery dies within a couple of hours of active use. Luckily, that is not the case with the Dell XPS 13 battery life – an intense video playback battery challenge performed by one reviewer revealed that the laptop can be actively used for 12+ hours before plugging it in, which will give you a full day of work.

5. Price

Given the high-end characteristics of the new Dell laptop, it’s not surprising that the Dell XPS 13 price is far from being too affordable. The international price for the XPS 13 starts at $899, and you can expect to buy it in Nigeria starting at 350,000.
