The Dell XPS 13 was hailed as one of the best laptops that have ever been made, and now it has been made into something even better. It now has a brighter display, a new USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3 connection, a longer battery life, as well as a choice of Intel’s latest 6th-generation Core Series CPUs. Dell even played the good guy role by keeping all the features that was liked upon the previous model, which includes the very attractive aluminum and carbon-fiber body, a comfortable backlit keyboard, and an optional quad-HD infinity display. Even though the location of the webcam is still clearly out of place, this latest installment of the notebook continues to reign supreme.
The Newer Dell XPS 13 Brings in More to the Mix While Retaining What Has Been Like From the Previous Model
The new Dell XPS 13 features a backlit keyboard with two levels of lighting. The tech firm makes up for the keyboard’s somewhat thin 1.2-millimeter travel by adding a good spring located at the bottom of the stroke. Therefore, even though there’s not a lot of room to work with while typing things using the notebook’s keyboard, it is not as painful as you would think when you spend long hours typing away (or becoming a keyboard warrior in social media websites and Internet forums).
The laptop also includes a 4.1 x 2.3-inch touchpad which has some features that are not seen in your typical laptop touchpad. It has features such as a very comfortable and seductively smooth matte-black surface which assures that users would think twice in using a physical computer mouse. While using the touchpad, cursor movement as well as multi-finger gestures, such as two-finger scrolling and pinch-to-zoom, does respond quickly and accurately.
For the new XPS 13, it has a 13.3-inch QHD (3200 x 1800) touch capacitive display which is indeed a sight to behold. It enables users to take advantage of wide viewing angles, and it also sports better brightness and overall color range as compared to the non-touch, full-HD version of this machine.
Finally, the overall performance for the Dell XPS 13 is indeed a joy to use. The machine can multi-task a lot of programs and applications without stressing out too much. It can stream video, crunch numbers, surf the Internet, and compile reports really well and without a hint of slowdown. Bring all of these together with a battery life that can last for nearly 12 hours (for the non-touch display version) and you got yourself a notebook that you might not want to leave by your side ever again.
