Erase borders, starting with the display. The smallest 13-inch laptop on the planet has the world’s first virtually borderless InfinityEdge display – amazing both inside and out.

Dell XPS 13 – The smallest 13-inch laptop on the planet

The Dell XPS 13 is a high-end notebook that combines a high-resolution 13" display with a slim design and high-quality materials. The exterior chassis is made of edge-to-edge CNC-machined aluminium. The palm rest is made of carbon fibre composite, making it extremely light, sturdy and pleasantly cool to the touch.

One of the notebook’s highlights is the impressive screen size. The 13.3" virtually borderless infinity display measures a miniscule 5.2mm border and is one of the largest notebook displays in its size class. Enjoy a new level of clarity with Full HD resolution. And with the QHD+ display option (3200x1800 pixels), screen performance is taken to the next level. The display is made of chemically hardened Corning Gorilla Glass so it helps prevent scuffs caused by handling, cleaning or wiping.

The high-speed yet economical 6th generation i5 or i7 processors and built-in graphics solution make the XPS 13 perfectly suited for a wide range of office and multimedia applications. On-board 4GB or 16GB memory guarantee fast access and high reading and writing speeds that outshine standard hard disks. A further advantage is that SSDs do not contain any moving parts. This leads to increased sturdiness as no parts are mechanically worn down. What’s more, SSDs are absolutely silent.

The notebook is equipped with a USB-C Thunderbolt 3 standard port. Connect to an additional USB 3.0 and up to two 4K displays, docking solutions for Thunderbolt, external graphics cards or a peer-to-peer network.

New information technologies are developing at an incredible speed. I find this field fascinating. I really enjoy getting to know and reporting on these technologies for our customers. If for once I am not busy with the latest notebooks or other gadgets, I ride my bike up mountains, snowboard down again or go on adventurous trips to faraway countries.
