The Dell XPS 13 sports a 13-inch full-HD screen. It comes with a virtually borderless Infinity Edge touch display, with only a 5.2mm bezel on the top and both sides. This design was pioneered by Dell.
Dell has announced the launch of its latest XPS 13 laptops in India. The Texas-based computer technology giant had unveiled this next-gen model at CES 2018, held in early January.
The Dell XPS range is associated with several ‘firsts’ and ‘bests’ and has won more than 300 product awards for aspects like form factor, display prowess and battery life.
Dell XPS 13, the premier device in the company’s high-end productivity range of laptops, is soon to reach the Indian market. Commenting on the launch in India, Ray Wah, a Senior Vice President at Dell, said, “The XPS brand is legendary; it leads our Ultrabook portfolio. From innovations in design philosophy using smarter materials to performance-driven sleek design construction, the new XPS 13 is an absolute delight! This machine is tailored for savoring an ultimate entertainment experience.”
Apart from being high-performance, the device is artfully constructed. It has a slimmer and more portable design. With its thickness tapering from 11.6mm down to 7.8mm and with its weight starting at only 1.22kgs, Dell XPS 13 is claimed to be the world’s smallest 13-inch laptop.
Its incredible looks turned heads at CES last month, with the white variant being a combination of metal and fiberglass and the black one being a combination of metal and carbon fiber.
The resolution of the base and middle variants is 1080×1920 pixels, while the top variant offers Ultra HD display with resolution of 2160×3840 pixels.

The top variant has the 8th generation Intel Core i7-8550 processor under its hood. It packs in 16GB LPDDR3 RAM and 512GB PCIe SSD.
The Dell XPS 13 has USB Type-C 3.1. Its battery is claimed to last for over 19 hours on a single full charge. This would also be Dell’s first laptop to come with GORE Thermal Insulation, which helps cool the device during high-intensity tasks.
All variants come with Windows 10 Home with Office Home and Student 2016.
While the Infinity View display enhances the experience when viewing media, Dell XPS 13 comes with:
The price of the base variant is ₹94,790. For the i7 variant with full-HD display, you can expect to pay ₹1,41,490. The top variant offering Core i7 processor and Ultra HD display costs ₹1,59,790.
