The Good The Dell XPS 13 keeps everything that was great about the previous model — including its nearly edge-to-edge-display, Thunderbolt 3 USB-C and fantastic keyboard — and adds eighth-gen Intel processors paired with Dell technologies for a big performance boost and longer battery life.
The Bad The thin frame around the display means the webcam is placed at the bottom of the display. Though the QHD-resolution touchscreen is beautiful, it adds a lot to the price and hurts battery life. Gold version will cost you $50 more.
The Bottom Line With increased performance and battery life, Dell’s premium ultraportable XPS 13 remains easy to recommend.
