The Dell XPS 13 is a beautiful laptop that you'll rightly want to both show off and keep safe. There might only be one good choice right now for a clear case for the XPS 13, but thankfully it's a really good one, so it's easy to recommend.

Whether you were specifically hunting for a see-through case or not, the iPearl is absolutely perfect for everyone who wants to keep their XPS 13 looking fresh. You don't have to worry about scratches, zippers, or getting a dedicated bag with a case like this.
Is it a good time to buy this case?
Absolutely. There's essentially no competition, and as it's fairly new there's little chance of it being replaced any time soon. It's also available in a multitude of colors right now.
Protect and show-off your XPS 13 at the same time
There are many ways to protect a laptop as you move it around, but a hard shell such as this one offers the same benefits as putting your smartphone into a case, just on a much larger scale.
If you're forever putting it in and pulling it out of a bag or a sleeve, the iPearl is a great way to just carry it around without any fuss or fear of scratches. It won't shatter if you drop your laptop and as a two-piece shell, it simply snaps on and off with ease.
It's very simple, but very well made and very effective, and the see-through nature allows you to still show off the beauty of your laptop — or that it's not a MacBook! You're not limited to a plain, boring design either. There's a whole bunch of colors to match your own personality, and being able to prop it up on the retractable feel is a great addition.
While there's no alternative right now, that doesn't make the iPearl (opens in new tab) any less of a great buy. A laptop shell case is perhaps something you hadn't considered before, but it's a simple, highly effective way of keeping your XPS 13 safe from the world around it.
