The XPS 13 launched initially back in January at CES where the near bezel-less Infinity Display took our breath away. Visually, this latest model remains the same, so the Infinity Display remains as does the 13-inch size in an 11-inch form factor. The big changes are inside.
There's no better time to shop and save money on a new laptop. Be sure to check out our continuously updated article on the best Dell XPS 13 Black Friday deals.
As you'd expect from a new laptop launching at this point in the year, the refreshed XPS 13 gets a range of Skylake CPUs from Intel, and is available with Core i3, i5 and i7 variants. As with before there will be two choices of display to include a 1080p non-touch and a QHD+ (3200x1800) touch screen.
RAM and internal storage options have increased for this latest model, with 4, 8 and 16GB of RAM now available as well as up to 1TB of PCIe SSD storage. The external ports are about the same with two full sized USB 3.0, a 3.5mm headset jack and full sized SD card slot, this time around joined by a Thunderbolt 3/USB-C port.
Construction is still the aluminum/Carbon Fiber harmony we already know and the precision trackpad also makes a return. It's essentially the same exact machine but given a bump with 2016 ready specs. And that's just fine with us.
The latest XPS 13 will be available in the U.S. from October 8 at Dell.com with prices starting at $799.
