CES 2020: Dell’s new XPS 13 gets a shave and a nip tuck

Never looked better

Dell’s popular XPS 13 ultrabook has finally got an upgrade that’s worthy of being called an ‘upgrade’. Ahead of CES 2020, Dell (among many other products) announced its new flagship ultrabook that comes with plenty of new bits. It still looks typically Dell – and typically ultrabook, but the bigger 13.4-inch display is now taller (moves to a 16:10 ratio), which also means that it's finally lost that thick chin, also known as the bottom bezel. If you felt like a giant while using the laptop, you will be more than happy to know that the bigger keyboard goes from side to side and, going with the theme (bigger everything), also features a bigger trackpad. As for the specs, the top-end variant can get you a 4K display (with a touchscreen), Intel 10th Gen Core chipset, 32GB RAM and 2TB of storage. And if you are a bit old-school, you still get a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C ports and a microSD card slot to plug in and transfer stuff. Price tags start from $999 for the standard model and $1,119 for the Linux-powered Developer Edition.
