Dell XPS 13 keyboard

One of the most noticeable changes is the thinness of the laptop's bottom bezel. The laptop has a screen-to-body ratio of 91.5 percent. The display is available in touch and non-touch FHD versions, as well as a 4K touch version. The display supports Dolby Vision HDR with CinemaColor. On the audio side of things, the Dell XPS 13 supports Waves MaxxAudio Pro with CinemaSound.

Another improvement is the laptop's keyboard, which now features key caps that are nine percent larger than previous models. The device's trackpad is 17 percent larger than previous models.

The refreshed Dell XPS 13 is a Project Athena device which focuses on battery life and instant-on capabilities. Dell states that the new XPS 13 gets up to 19 hours of battery life.

Intel's Ice Lake processors are on the inside of the device, along with Iris Plus Graphics if you opt for the Core i7 model. There are variants of the XPS 13 ranging from the Intel Core i3 to the quad-core Intel Core i7. There is not an option for a six-core Intel chip.

A Developer Edition of the XBS 13 running Ubuntu is on the way, but will not be available until February 4, 2020.

  • The article lists the maximum RAM available for the new XPS 13 as 32GB yet the Dell website only shows a max of 16GB. Can you please confirm/validate if the new XPS 13 will eventually receive 32GB? I know the new XPS 13 2-in-1 can be configured with a maximum of 32GB, strange that the standard XPS 13 laptop comes with less.
  • That's a sexy looking machine. I might get one of these.
  • Intel offering a G1 in i5s is just plain disrespectful. I was seriously considering this laptop but having terrible graphics performance paired with a good cpu is just a bad balance for my use.
