Dell XPS 13 review: The best ultraportable ever?


The Dell XPS 13 is a lot thinner than the last version, and has a neat new fingerprint scanner built into the power button. Even the entry-level

Slimmest XPS 13 ever ; Excellent screen quality ; Great build quality ; 3x USB-C sockets

Shorter battery life than predecessor ; USB-C connections only

Fantastic Full HD screen ; Thinner and lighter than before ; Superb all-round build quality

Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition 9370 review


A truly top-notch Linux laptop…

Fantastically portable ; Excellent performance levels ; Class-leading 4K display ; Comfortable keyboard

Disappointing webcam ; No USB-A ports ; Touchscreen model is susceptible to glare

It barely seems possible but Dell has made its flagship laptop even better by reducing the size and weight, bumping up the processor and packing in a 4K screen. No other Linux laptop compares.

Dell XPS 13 review


Crossing I's and dotting T's on the best laptop

Centered IR webcam ; Gorgeous new design ; Beautiful optional 4K display ; Impressive performance

Steeper starting price ; White option is pricier ; Still gotta’ move that webcam

Moving the webcam position, adding facial login and a four-mic array, giving Intel’s chips more headroom to perform even better and adding a 4K screen have all evolved the XPS into an even more formidable flagship laptop. In directly addressing the...

Dell XPS 13 2018 review: hands-on


With no SD slot or USB-A, Dell has shaved a few grams of its latest XPS 13 laptop. Do the improved specs make up for the compromises?

Dell XPS 13 (2018)


With its 2018 XPS 13, Dell has managed to make a laptop that only the most demanding users will be able to find tangible fault in. There are some cheaper rivals, but it successfully undercuts Microsoft's Surface range for value for money. Here is our...

Dell XPS 13 (2018) review: Dell's gorgeous ultraportable just got a little bit gorgeouser


Slimmer, lighter and more attractive than before: the Dell XPS 13 remains among best Windows ultraportable money can buy

Wisely, Dell hasn’t tried to completely reinvent the XPS 13, but there’s enough here that’s new to make this the most exciting revision in years. Performance and battery life are terrific, and the ultra-compact, display-centric design is now slimmer...

Dell XPS 13 review (2018): Still the best Windows laptop


Dell's latest XPS 13 doesn't stray from the line's high standards. It's fast, slim and sturdy. Sure, the company didn't change much, but it didn't really have to.

Still gorgeous thanks to the InfinityEdge screen ; A bit lighter and slimmer than before ; Supports external GPUs ; Display now supports HDR

You’ll pay for the 4K display in battery life ; No traditional USB ports or full-sized SD card reader

And it's officially hosted in Las Vegas.

Dell XPS 13 (2018) hands-on review


Dell's all-new XPS 13 freshens up the hardware, but doesn't lose the magic.

Thin and light ; Still attractive, now available in white ; 4K display looks spectacular ; Keyboard feels great

Battery is smaller than before
