Launched to the world in 2015 and updated most recently in late 2016, the XPS 13 is Dell's take on the 13-inch ultrabook. Packed with 7th generation Intel Core i (Sky Lake) chipsets, one of the most striking things about the XPS 13 is the Infinity Display.
Where we're going, we don't need bezels
Sourced from Sharp, the display on the XPS 13 comes similar in appearance to the AQUOS line of TVs; there is practically no bezel around the outside of the screen, creating an almost edge-to-edge display.
The size of an 11-inch notebook
With the new display technology and the witchcraft Dell has undertaken on the inside, the XPS 13 has a much smaller footprint than comparable 13-inch ultrabooks, such as Apple's MacBook Air. What this creates is a 13-inch laptop in the form factor of an 11-inch. You get extra screen real estate without the added heft to go with it.
A model for everyone
It'd be easy to assume that the XPS 13 is only available to those who are willing to spend a lot of money on a laptop. But it's not just about the high end. While the top spec models pack an Intel Core i7 CPU and a QHD+ resolution touchscreen display, at the other end of the spectrum is a more modest Core i3 option with a non-touch Full HD display that can be had for $799. Even better is that all of them look the same from the outside, so no one will even know which model you have.
