Engadget Review

Dell’s latest XPS 13 doesn’t stray from the line’s high standards. It’s fast, slim and sturdy. Sure, the company didn’t change much, but it didn’t really have to.

Pros
  • Still gorgeous thanks to the InfinityEdge screen
  • A bit lighter and slimmer than before
  • Supports external GPUs
  • Display now supports HDR
Cons
  • You’ll pay for the 4K display in battery life
  • No traditional USB ports or full-sized SD card reader
