XPS 13 9000 Series Touch Notebook


XPS pioneered the Infinity Edge screen, which maximizes your active display area, so you see all beautiful screen and are immersed in the content you are viewing. InfinityEdge displays also optimize the footprint of your laptop, providing large displays in smaller form factors. Most XPS laptops offer 4-sided InfinityEdge displays.

High Resolution Displays

A high resolution display enables bright, crisp, sharp and fine detail for everything from images to text. Enjoy sharper detail for movies and content consumption and creation, even down to the text on a website. See more content on your screen and increase your productivity – more Excel rows, browsing multiple web pages side by side, copying between folders, or even running multiple apps side-by-side.

SDR vs Dolby Vision

Dolby Vision™

The wide color gamut of Dolby Vision greatly expands the available color palette on your device’s display adding a myriad of true, distinctive colors so that subtle or muted colors show as realistically as bright, vibrant colors. In addition, Dolby Vision significantly increases the available range of brightness on your device: images blaze brightly from the screen and highlights dazzle. True blacks combined with astonishing brightness bring you greater contrast and nuanced shadow details that add an amazingly lifelike sense of depth.

  1. Color Gamut:

    Color gamut is a measure of how many colors can be represented on a display. The higher the color gamut, the more colors represented, making color more rich and saturated. While no display can come close to what is seen with the human eye, a 100% color gamut panel is the best available in PC display. When a panel is 100% color gamut, it’s typically described as Adobe RGB. The XPS 15 4K Ultra HD display is factory color measured and color coordinates are saved onto the panel so you can reproduce color accurately. They are vivid, show more shades, higher saturation and more colorfulness. The user sees a more pleasant, colorful and accurate image. The XPS 15 and 17 are the only laptops that are true 100% minimum Adobe RGB, meaning the panel can represent all color in the Adobe color space without compromise. Professionals are able to get a full color representation of their content in the field - they can take a photo with an RGB setting on their camera, use Adobe software, and see that image on their display with exactly the same colors represented.

  2. OLED:

    Get immersed in your content, photos and movies and with vivid, true-to-life color on an XPS OLED display. All 7.4 million pixels are individually lit, turning off completely for black, so dark areas are true black, enhancing dark scenes in movies. Color pops against that backdrop with wide color gamut (100% DCI-P3), making your photos and videos standout. Perfect black provides phenomenal contrast ratio (100,000:1) so content comes alive with breathtaking detail especially in dark areas.

  3. Dell Premier Color Software:

    For content that is not already in Adobe RGB format, like a web-page or movie, Dell Premier Color Software remaps the colors easily so you are able to see them accurately on your screen. So you can be sure you are seeing the true color of paint, a dress, a sofa, etc. when shopping online, or seeing a movie as the director intended. Available on XPS 15 and 17.

  4. High Brightness:

    A laptop with high brightness is easy to see when using outdoors & prefect for watching movies or web surfing. A 500-nit panel, found on most XPS laptops, is brighter than a typical laptop panel (200-nit).

  5. Wide Viewing Angles:

    Wider viewing angles allow for collaboration & sharing content, since your display can be viewed clearly from almost any angle. View your display from different angles and be treated to the same vivid, life-like images with great color consistency.

  6. High Contrast Ratio:

    A high, contrast ratio enables you to see whites as the brightest they can be, and dark colors, like black, the darkest they can be.

  7. Multi-Touch:

    Navigation made easy. A panel with multi-touch allows users to interact with their multimedia by directly touching the computer LCD, minimizing the need for a keyboard, touch pad or mouse. A touch screen is a more natural way to interact with your PC. You have the freedom to just touch the screen and manipulate directly. Plus, it is a more collaborative experience — no fighting over the mouse or who has control of the screen. And two people can interact with one application at the same time, with up to ten-finger-touch functionality.

  8. HDR:

    Take full advantage of HDR content’s superior dynamic range with Dolby Vision™, which can deliver colors never before seen on SDR PC displays. Dolby Vision content can deliver highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are up to 10 times darker. Plus, the stunning VESA certified DisplayHDR™400 display on the optional 4K+ panel enables over 16 million colors that have more depth and dimension than ever before.

  9. Anti-Reflective Coating:

    Get the beautiful gloss of the touchscreen without the glare; an ideal mobile experience when you’re outdoors
    An anti-reflective coating is a multi-layer coating to reduce reflections and provide best customer experience. Most of the portable devices with cover glass have light reflections coming from the internal layers of the display assembly which is due to multi-layer glass structure. Due to this fact, the performance of the device is reduced under high ambient light conditions. By applying this multi-layer AR coating, the internal reflections can be reduced and experience enhanced.

  10. Dolby Vision™

    Dolby Vision™ leverages astonishing color, contrast, and brightness to deliver an ultravivid picture that brings entertainment to life. Dolby Vision combines two powerful capabilities high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut in an imaging technology that works across cameras, production techniques, and consumer devices to produce a stunning picture you didn’t know was possible on a computer screen. Now, wherever you go, you see more of what the artist intends for you to see for an amazing entertainment experience on your device.
