Features & Design
Precision manufacturing: 100% of the enclosure is sculpted by a CNC (computer numerical control) machining process. A high precision, machine-milled aluminum chassis creates an elegant design with high build quality that’s stronger and stiffer than magnesium or plastic.
Cool and light: For the black palm rest, carbon fiber inspired by the aerospace industry with a platinum silver cover allow for maximum strength and minimal weight.
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 6.8% larger 16:10 display, 17% larger touchpad and an edge-to-edge backlit keyboard with larger key caps as compare with previous generation.
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 as compare with previous generation, plus no sacrifice to essentials like the headphone jack or microSD card slot.
Exceptional laptop experience anywhere: Intel® Evo™ platform brings the perfect combination of performance, responsiveness, battery life and stunning visuals to a new class of sleek, stylish laptops. Co-engineered with Intel and verified to provide the ultimate experience for life or work anywhere.
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.
Stay unplugged with long battery life: Experience incredibly long battery life — up to 14 hours, 11 minutes3 on a Full HD+ model when streaming your favorite shows or up to 8 hours and 12 minutes4 of streaming on a 4K+ model.
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 2×2 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.
Display like no other: 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.
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.
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. Dell is the first to offer this integrated solution.
Start in an instant: A built in lid sensor allows you to open the lid and power up in milliseconds, no matter what power-state you are in.
You are the password: Choose between two secure, personalized ways to log on. The infrared camera with Windows Hello recognizes your face, unlocking your XPS with secure facial recognition technology. The fingerprint reader integrated into the power button lets you log on with just a touch.
Stay powered: You’ll experience incredibly long battery life when using productivity applications like Word or Excel.
Saving our seas: Recognized as a CES® 2018 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree, our black packaging trays are a step beyond recycled. 25% percent of the material consists of ocean plastics collected from coastal areas, while the remaining 75% is made up of other recycled plastics.
Energy efficient: The XPS 13 is ENERGY STAR® certified.
Safer materials: Free of materials like cadmium, lead, mercury and some phthalates, it’s also EPEAT® Gold registered and BFR/PVC-free.
Recycle friendly: 90% of the laptop’s parts can be easily recycled or reused, and the white bamboo packaging trays are 100% recyclable.
