The latest Dell XPS 13 laptop has been revealed and it comes with a couple of new features but most of it remains the same, the way we like it. There is new thermal design and the new laptop is even thinner. The Dell XPS 13 laptop comes with the latest 8th generation Intel Kaby Lake-R chips. The laptop has 15W TDP and comes with Intel Kaby Lake-R Core i5-8250U or a Intel Kaby Lake-R Core i7-8550U variants.
Both processors feature 4 cores and 8 threads and Intel UHD Graphics 620. The display is a 13.3” 1920 x 1080 IPS panel. The display is touch-enabled and there is a 4K variant as well. The display features edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and the Infinity Edge technology. The screen has very slim bezels like the older versions and looks great to the eyes.
4GB, 8GB, and 16 GB dual-channel LPDDR3 are the memory configuration options. The first two runs at 1,866MHz while the 16 GB runs at 2,133MHz. There are plenty of options for storage as well. The base model comes with 128GB M.2 SATA SSD. Other than that you can also get 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB M.2 PCIe SSD.
The laptop comes with a back-lit keyboard and is equipt with modern connectivity. Dell has doubled the number of fans and pipes for the new model from one to two. Fans and pipes decrease thermals and increase performance. The slimmer design means that you no longer get standard USB but Type-C instead. Thunderbolt 3 interface is also there if you choose to use.
There is a Black version that comes in a carbon fiber finish but if you are not into that then you can opt for the While version. The power button doubles as the fingerprint scanner as well which is a good feature. Other colors include Rose Gold and Silver. The Dell XPS 13 starts at $999.99.
