Dell XPS 13

Refined. Enlightened. Empowered.

If we had to go with three words to describe the new Dell XPS 13 in all of its Alpine White glory, it’d have to be those. The Dell XPS 13, at least on paper, appears to be the kind of device you’d expect to appear plain and inconspicuous. With 8th-generation Intel Kaby Lake Refresh processors, three USB-C ports, Windows 10 and even a microSD card slot, it’s more powerful than it looks. It’s also extremely lightweight, coming in at just 2.67 pounds. It’s also easier to carry around.

Despite being smaller than ever, the XPS 13 is no slouch when it comes to performance. It has eighth-generation Core i5 or i7 processor options, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. The Core i7 / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD / 4K display configuration I’ve been testing (which lists for an eye-watering $2,100) has been able to handle all of my productivity needs without blinking, and I’m confident the Core i5 processor would have little issues, either. Unsurprisingly, you can’t really game on the XPS 13, but its Thunderbolt 3 ports do allow for plugging in an external GPU and gaming that way.
