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.
Inside, Dell uses Intel processors of the eighth generation, with the Core i5-8250U and the Core i7-8550U available, each with four cores.The graphics unit is limited to the Intel UHD Graphics 620. In memory, the user can get up to 16 gigabytes of dual-channel SDRAM with 2133 megahertz. Dell offers its new storage-only notebook with SSDs ranging from 128 gigabytes to 1 terabyte.

On request, you can get the notebook also with an Ubuntu 16.04 system, but then completely dispense with the biometric functions. The notebook weighs 1.21 kilograms. The sale is starting from today starting from a price of 1349 euro in Dell’s in-house online Shop.
