Engadget Review

Dell’s XPS 13 is still one of the best Windows ultraportables around. Its design is better than ever, it has fantastically bright Dolby Vision HDR screens and Dell has finally returned the webcam to the proper position. There aren’t many downsides -- unless you’re looking for a bit of gaming performance.
