Dell XPS 13 (7390) review: A tiny, insanely powerful laptop


Dell's latest XPS 13 may look the same as the prior generation model that it succeeds, but this latest update makes this stellar laptop even more powerful. With new Comet Lake processors at the helm, the XPS 13 now supports the option for up to a...

Massive power ; Light, thin, and portable ; Beautiful 4K screen ; Great battery life

The new XPS 13 is as portable as ever, but just got way more powerful

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 7390 review: A new era for XPS


Ice Lake has been years in the coming, and the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is the first to use Intel's 10nm processors. The device has been completely revamped, now showing off a brand-new design, including a new keyboard and taller screen. This is a new...

Refined design ; Even thinner bezels ; More screen space ; Iris Plus graphics are included

Dell's new XPS 13 2-in-1 is a refreshing headfirst dive into Intel's Ice Lake

Lovely, sophisticated design ; Good performance ; Powerful speakers

No SD reader ; Mediocre display ; Unreliable touchpad

Dell's XPS 13 is one of the best looking Ultrabooks we've seen yet, but isn't necessarily the best Ultrabook.

It's everything we like about Dell's XPS 13 clamshell in a two-in-one design -- and with better battery life and performance.


It's everything we like about Dell's XPS 13 clamshell in a two-in-one design -- and with better battery life and performance.

Dell's redesigned premium XPS 13 2-in-1 is an all-around improvement in design, features and performance, making it one of the best in the category.

Memory and storage is onboard and can't be upgraded post-purchase. Dell's active pen is not included and the white model costs extra, too.

With the new XPS 13 2-in-1, Dell finally has a convertible that's just as great as its XPS 13 laptop. Just make sure you get all the components you need up front.

Dell New XPS 13 review: It's elegant, tiny and stupidly fast


Dell's New XPS 13 comes in Alpine White, has an improved keyboard, sports a Windows Hello camera, and simply smokes the competition (and itself) in performance.

Better performance than most Core i7 laptops with just a Core i5 ; Improved keyboard over previous generation XPS 13 ; Tiny foot print

Can be loud at times ; No USB-A port ; Slightly pricey

Dell XPS 13 Touch


The Dell XPS 13 Touch is a compact touch-screen ultrabook made with premium materials like carbon fiber and Gorilla Glass. It's an excellent travel companion, but strictly luxury class.

Compact. Sturdy construction. Comfortable, backlit keyboard. Responsive touchpad and touch screen. Large solid-state drive (SSD). 802.11ac Wi-Fi. All-day battery life

Somewhat pricey. No SD card slot or Ethernet port

The Dell XPS 13 Touch ($1,349.99, as tested) is a lightweight ultrabook made for the road warriors who need a full-size keyboard and a 10-point touch screen in a compact form factor. Premium materials like carbon fiber and Gorilla Glass add luxury...

This third iteration of Dell's tiny laptop is definitely the best.

Very thin and light ; Great keyboard and trackpad ; 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter

No SD card slot or hard-wired ethernet ; Smallish battery

Dell gets it mostly right with this tiny, tough-as-nails notebook. We dig the high-res touchscreen, but battery life could be better and it costs a bundle.

Dell XPS 13 ( Fall 2013)


Since its 2012 launch , the XPS 13 changed in small but important ways, while keeping its slim silhouette intact. In the intervening years, ultrabook and ultrabook-style laptops have become commonplace, so at least the XPS 13 now looks a lot like many...

The well-made Dell XPS 13 finally combines a current-gen CPU, high-res display, touch screen, and nearly everything else on our wish list.

For the same premium price, you could get a MacBook Pro, ports are limited, and the basic design hasn't changed in a couple of years.

Early versions of the Dell XPS 13 had promise, but lacked must-have features. Over time, the system slowly added a high-res display, then a touch screen, making the new 2014 version an ultrabook that hits nearly all the marks.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (2017) Review


The XPS 13 2-in-1 combines portability, comfort and plenty of power in a sleek, fanless design, but we wish the battery lasted longer.

Most compact 2-in-1 with 13-inch screen; Comfortable keyboard; Vibrant InfinityEdge display; Impressive audio; Dynamic Power Mode boosts speed when you need it

Battery life isn't as long as on other 2-in-1s; Camera is still beneath the display; Intel Core U machines are faster
