Best Laptops: Dell
European Hardware Community Awards 2020
Cool and light: For the black palm rest, carbon fiber inspired by the aerospace industry, or the arctic white woven glass fiber 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 a UV- and stain-resistant coating to prevent yellowing and staining.Watch Video
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 optimized user experience. The XPS 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. The new hinge design makes it easier to open, while staying stable when you are using the touchscreen.
Revolutionary webcam construction: The new XPS 13 webcam isn't just smaller (only 2.25 mm)—it's also better. A new 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
Dell Power Manager with adaptive performance: This laptop uses adaptive performance based on the latest Intel Dynamic Tuning Technology. With this new predictive and adaptive engine, our laptop is actively changing the power of its CPU to optimize your specific workload, increasing performance when you need it.*
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 512GB of solid-state drive storage. Multi-task in a flash even on intense applications with up to 16GB of memory.
Killer™ Wireless: With advanced Wi-Fi 6 technology and theoretical throughput speeds of up to 2.4 Gbps, the Killer AX1650 is nearly three times as fast as the previous generation of 80MHz 2x2 AC products. It prioritizes streaming video, communication, and game traffic in your system 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) 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.
Color that pops: Equipped with 100% sRGB and 90% DCI P3 color gamut, your screen delivers saturated colors 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 color integrity.
