Features and Design
Cool and light: For the black palm rest, carbon fibre inspired by the aerospace industry, or the arctic white woven glass fibre palm rest, allow for maximum strength and minimal weight. Our design team worked tirelessly to get the details just right, including carefully crafted backlighting and stain-resistant coating to prevent yellowing and staining.
Superior screen: The latest Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 is strong, as well as impact and scratch resistance.
Gleaming sidewalls: Anodizing provides a superior, scratch-resistant surface, but here, edges are dipped a second time to further prevent damage from repeated plugging and unplugging of peripherals. Using this finish on the metal achieves the perfect color without using paint, which could chip away over time.
The finest details: Stainless inlayed logos are laser cut out of a sheet of stainless steel and dropped into the machined cut outline by hand.
Elevated essentials: Elements like the display, keys and touchpad are all larger for an easier, more optimised user experience. The XPS 13 features a 6.8% larger 16:10 display, 17% larger touchpad and an edge-to-edge backlit keyboard with larger key caps.
Easier to open: The new twin coil press fit hinge is designed to maximize the screen to body ratio and enable 4-sided InfinityEdge. It makes it easier to open, while staying stable when you are using the touchscreen.
Revolutionary webcam construction: The XPS 13 webcam isn't just smaller (only 2.25 mm)—it's also better. A 4-element lens uses more elements than a typical webcam to deliver sharp video in all areas of the frame, while temporal noise reduction uses advanced noise reduction, significantly improving video quality, especially in dim lighting conditions. Finally, the lens is assembled with precise machinery to ensure all points of the image are in focus.
Sacrifices nothing: Features a 6% thinner design with more power, plus no sacrifice to essentials like the headphone jack or microSD card slot.
Compact 13-inch laptop design
Tiny but mighty
Breaking the boundaries of performance for thin and light laptops: The unmatched speed and intelligence of 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and Intel® Iris® Xe graphics makes your experience fast, smooth and easy.
Work or play all day: You'll experience incredibly long battery life —up to 18 hours, 49 minutes* on a Full HD+ model when using when using productivity applications like Word or Excel or up to 11 hours, 51 minutes* when streaming Netflix. On our UHD panel, get up to 12 hours and 13 minutes*using productivity apps or up to 8 hours and 27 minutes* of Netflix streaming.
Faster memory, more storage: Your system boots and resumes in seconds thanks to up to 2TB of solid-state drive storage. Multi-task in a flash even on intense applications with up to 16GB of memory.
Killer™ Wireless: The Killer AX500-DBS includes advanced Wi-Fi 6 technology that more than doubles the theoretical throughput of previous generation 80MHz 2x2 Wi-Fi 5 products. The AX500-DBS automatically detects, classifies, and prioritizes streaming video, communication, and game traffic for fast, smooth online experiences.
Advanced thermal redesign: From dual fans separated to spread heat over a larger area and a single heat pipe designed with a single evaporator and dual condenser, to hidden exhaust venting through the hinge, thermal design ensures you have the best performing system in the thinnest form factor possible. Additionally, your system is equipped with GORE™ Thermal Insulation, which provides thermal conductivity levels lower than air in a thin, flexible format to help keep components cool.
Stunning is an understatement
See every detail: The optional 4K Ultra HD+ (3840 x 2400) touch display offers pinpoint accuracy for all of your computing needs. See the detail of every pixel in photos without needing to zoom in or see more content while browsing the web.
Colour that pops: Equipped with 100% sRGB and 90% DCI P3 colour gamut, your screen delivers saturated colours while a 1500:1 contrast ratio allows you to see the brightest brights and darkest darks. And 500-nit brightness provides more clarity in bright light like outdoors, while a 0.65% anti-reflective coating cuts the glare of a glossy screen.
Easy on the eyes: Eyesafe® intelligently manages light energy at the source – selectively reducing harmful blue light and dispersing it across the light spectrum. Our unique solution combines RGB hardware and software adjustments to more effectively protect against blue light, while maintaining vivid colour integrity. Dell is the first to offer this integrated solution.
