The new Dell XPS 13 (9370) is far from being just a hardware update as it was served last year. The fans of the line have to adapt to some major changes and of course, they will not please everyone – but that’s the price of advancement. If you are open to change, you will be provided with a very slim and elegant notebook.

At first glance, it is striking that Dell has further developed the InfinityEdge display. The edges have become 23 percent thinner and now only 4 millimeters thick. In the thin edging, a panel is installed that is even brighter than its predecessor: instead of 350, 400 candelas per square meter are now offered here. QHD has increased the resolution to 4K and Dell promises 100% sRGB calibration under the anti-reflection coated touch surface.

Even with the new XPS 13, the user will not find any aging ports on the sides of the housing.Dell also relies fully on the USB Type-C format, which can be used to handle most of the protocols anyway and which also powers the system. Three of these inputs can be found on the device, two support Thunderbolt 3, the third USB 3.1. The ports are complemented by a MicroSD card slot and a jack socket for connecting headsets.
