Design-wise the XPS 13 is not shy about going against the industrial minimalism that has been established by the MacBook. It sports a rose gold shade aluminum lid and base. There is also a silver color option. Wedged between these machined aluminum components is a carbon fiber backlit keyboard that is a joy to use. The display, of course, is the other star of the show. The 13.3 inch screen real estate is simply stunning to look at not only because of its crystal clear QHD+ technology but also because the bezels are insanely thin. Try using a wallpaper with a deep black background and the display experience is close to edgeless.
For a quick specs rundown, the XPS 13 is rocking a 7th generation Intel® Core i7 processor 7500U, 13.3″ QHD+ touchscreen display, 16 GB of memory, 256 GB solid state drive, fingerprint reader; Bluetooth; and backlit keyboard. It also ships with Windows 10.
The Dell XPS 13 hardware is not capable of acrobatics such as flip its display into a number of positions. The screen cannot be detached from the keyboard to become a dedicated tablet.
Pricing for the Dell XPS 13 starts at around $1,330. But there are sellers that are now offering the laptop for less. The price tag also varies according to specs because it is highly customizable in addition to the fact that some retailers price the gold and silver color options differently.
