The smallest 13-inch on the planet with the world’s first infinityEdge display
Large screen, small laptop: The virtually borderless infinityEdge display cleverly fits a 13-inch display into the size of an 11-inch laptop. Compared to the Apple® MacBook Air 13, the XPS 13 is 23% smaller with the same size screen.
Impressive screen size: The thin bezel frees up the screen space in this innovative design. The three-sided, virtually borderless infinity display measures a miniscule 5.2mm border: the thinnest frame on a notebook. With a slim bezel of less than 2% of the total display, you have more screen to love.
Thin build: Not only is the XPS 13 small, it's also stunningly thin to make it an ideal mobile companion. At only 9-15mm thick and starting at only 2.6 pounds (1.18kg), it is easy to stick in your purse or bag while you are on the go.
Stunning UltraSharp™ QHD+ resolution (3200x1800): Choose the option that gives you 5.7 million pixels (276 ppi) for the ultimate screen performance with precise clarity and eye-popping details. There are over 2.5 times as many pixels as FHD, 5 times as many as HD and 4.4 times as many as the MacBook Air 13 (or other products with HD+ displays). It's also available with a Full HD non-touch display (1920x1080).
Easy to share: See content clearly from almost any angle with an IGZO2 IPS panel, providing a wide viewing angle of up to 170°. Enjoy the vibrant screen together with your friends.
Brighten your day: The screen is brilliant enough to watch movies in sunlight without missing the details. At 400-nit, it’s up to 100% brighter than a typical panel (200-nit) for a great view even outside. With a high color gamut of 72% and a high contrast ratio of 1000:1, more colors are represented so you can see the brightest brights and the darkest darks.
Touch friendly: The optional touch display lets you interact with your technology (phone, tablet and laptop) the same way. Enjoy your apps and OS at your fingertips.
Small size. Big performance.
Start faster: Enjoy the speed, clarity and improved graphics with Intel® Core™ processors.
Speedy start up: The XPS 13 boots and resumes* in seconds thanks to a standard solid state drive.
Pinch, zoom and click with precision The improved precision touch pad works quickly and fluidly like a touch screen with no more jumping or floating cursors.
See what you’ve been missing This standard backlit keyboard lights up your keys and your ideas. No need to squint in low-light or no-light rooms while typing.
Premium materials for a stunning design and durability
Tough stuff: Machined aluminum construction means the XPS 13 is precision-cut from a single block of aluminum for a sturdy, durable chassis.
Cool under pressure: XPS products use carbon fiber that is similar to what is used for some of the world’s high performance cars and racing bikes for a stellar combination of lightweight and strength. The palm rest is strong and thin like aluminum, but lighter and cooler to the touch.
Resists life’s “oops” moments: The Corning® Gorilla® Glass NBT™ QHD+ display is up to 10 times more scratch resistant than soda lime glass, so it helps prevent scuffs caused by handling, cleaning or wiping.*
Greenest XPS laptop ever
Smarter materials: Built with the environment in mind, the XPS 13 is free of concerning materials like lead, mercury and some phthalates. The greenest XPS laptop ever, it’s also EPEAT® Gold registered* and BFR/PVC-free.*
Recycle-friendly: The rapidly renewable bamboo trays are 100% recyclable, so you won’t worry about your environmental footprint. And an impressive 90% of the laptop’s parts can be easily recycled or reused.
Pre-loaded and pre-tested with all available drivers
Save time: Dell has already verified and preinstalled all drivers for you so there is no need to spend time finding the right driver for your laptop.
Save money: Get exactly what you want. This laptop comes with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, the popular Linux distribution, backed by Dell ProSupport, so you won’t deal with the hassle and extra cost of another OS that you won’t use.
4th Gen: Over the last two years, the Dell™ XPS™ 13 laptop, Developer Edition keeps getting better. Initially started as an open-ended exploratory project to identify what developers demand, improvements are made based on developers’ input.
