The Dell XPS 13 is here, and this successor is a return to form. Finally, Dell has addressed that our main difficulty with preceding Dell XPS 13 versions -- the camera positioning -- while also giving its battery life a rise.
Dell XPS 13 review

Beyond those developments, the 2019 Dell XPS 13 is different from its predecessors. Rather, the version of this year concentrates on continuing the lineage of their top notebooks. The matter is so or the luxury Ultrabook scene has changed somewhat during the past year, therefore the Dell XPS 13 is these days -- thanks to competition from the likes of Asus and Huawei.

Price and availability

Dell needs $978 for this XPS 13 at the US's configuration.

There are just three more customizable versions available, topping out using an 8th-generation quad core Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 2TB PCIe SSD -- behind a gorgeous 4K (3,840 x 2,160) touch screen inside a Rose Gold or Frost White chassis. Nonetheless, you are going to be paying a whopping $.

All configurations can be found in Dell's three colours: silver-on-black, improved gold-on-white along with a fresh frost-on-white scheme. Here will cost a cool $2,279.

In the united kingdom, you can find the Dell XPS 13 for as small as 1,379, using an Intel Core i5 chip, 8GB of RAM plus a 256GB SSD supporting a 4K touchscreen. Buyers will discover exactly the configuration that is identical, albeit using a complete HD screen.

The Dell XPS 13 2019 can be obtained with lots of unique configurations, but there are fewer types available for individuals in the united kingdom and Australia. It is well worth noting that high storage choices are locked behind a few high-cost hikes, but it does not alter how the Dell XPS 13 remains competitive with similarly priced opponents -- which is, save the overwhelming value of this flagship Huawei MateBook X Guru, particularly at the luxury. 

Design and display

At first glance, the Dell XPS 13 seems like the version of last year, and that the situation here. Dell did not only take in case it ai not broke' strategy this season. It fixed the most glaring design flaw: the webcam since it has now placed over the screen of the laptop.

Dell is very pleased with its new 2.25millimeter webcam, two decades in the making, which isn't just small enough to fit over the thin-bezel screen, but in addition, utilizes a 720p widescreen sensor paired with four far-field microphones so that you may activate and use Cortana or Alexa in a space.

We love the framework for buddies or shooting co-workers simpler, although the webcam will not blow your brain. Taking 0.9-megapixel stills and 720p video, you will look nice in meetings. Don't expect broadcaster caliber here.

The build quality and layout language will be the same. The notebook is just as light and thin as last year in 0.46 inches (11.6mm) and 2.7 lbs (1.23kg), respectively.

In terms of the keyboard, it is reactive and just as punchy as always, and also the touchpad is a joy. These are a couple of the Dell XPS 13's qualities that did not need altering.

The lineup of vents is also inherited, with two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) interfaces, one USB-C 3.1 port, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. This is 1 step ahead of several competing notebooks, with many using only USB-C 3.1 rather than the superior Thunderbolt 3 benchmark.

Is the display, not that it needs to. It is just as vibrant and rich as ever in both the entire HD and 4K touchscreen alternatives; the bezels around the display are almost non-existent, needless to say.

Particularly in the 4K version we tested here, we find the 100 percent sRGB colour reproduction through Dell's CinemaColor tools to be elite, complimented by some popping HDR techniques and 400 nits of brightness. The 4K panel is unquestionably sharp, but it still might be a bit of an overkill for a 13.3-inch viewing region.

All told there wasn't much that needed to be changed except for this one elephant in the room, about the XPS 13 layout.
