Dell XPS 13 Gets A Makeover, Is Now Faster, Thinner

Dell XPS 13 Gets A Makeover, Is Now Faster, Thinner

Maybe the company heard the cries of professional hardware reviewers about the XPS 13's two-year-old look (even though some companies have used the same basic design for almost eight years). Although that definitely helps.

The newest Dell XPS 13 comes in the traditional black and silver finish, but the new model with white and rose gold is new. 'To ensure durability, the alpine white glass fibre weave has titanium oxide coating for a pearlescent sheen and UV and stain-resistant protection to prevent yellowing or staining over time. The InfinityEdge Bezel of the next generation is nearly 23% thinner.

Unlike the XPS 13 9360 refresh, the new 9370 model sheds previous generation processor options and rolls exclusively with two of Intel's 8th gen chips-the Core i5-8250U and Core i7-8550U.

They should hopefully see a Middle East launch (and prices) later this year.

There's also a new Rose Gold colour this year, which has a white woven fabric-like palm rest.

With the latest XPS iteration, Dell claims to be the first to use "Gore Thermal Insulation", which sound like something we'd need a DOOM cheat code to enable, but no. Said Frank Azor, VP and GM of Dell XPS. In making the laptop thinner, Dell has opted to ditch the standard USB-A socket altogether, replacing it with USB-C instead. The Dell has three of these, with one reserved for charging and the others supporting Thunderbolt 3, and there's also an SD card reader and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Beyond looks, Dell says the new XPS 13 also stays cooler for longer because its glass fibre materials stay cooler for longer.

A suite of biometric identification features are on offer as well from voice, facial and touch recognition facilitated by an optional fingerprint sensors, microphones, and an infrared camera as well as Windows Hello and Cortana on the software side. In fact, the XPS 13 is just adopting the design that Dell used on the XPS 13 2-in-1 - a convertible version of this laptop with a touchscreen - that was introduced previous year.

Otherwise, this year's update is a pretty typical step forward for the XPS 13.

Alienware's Chris Sutphen explains the future of augmented and virtual reality for business, and why the company worked with Microsoft to design the new Dell Visor.

We'll check with Dell and get back to you, but for now, you should expect this one fairly soon, unlike regular CES announcements that usually take some time to arrive.

The latest XPS 13 does get rid of some important things - the USB Type A port.

The Dell XPS 13 starts at $999.99, although that includes a 1080p display, 4GB RAM, and 128GB of storage. Dell additionally has a Ubuntu-based designer adaptation of the XPS 13 with Linux preloaded accessible today beginning at $949.
