The latest Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 in several attributes surpassed the regular XPS 13. The convertible notebook had a smoother stylish design, a bigger screen aspect ratio, and even slimmer screen bezels than its sibling. Now, Dell is all set to do justice to the XPS 13. Here is a brief review on Dell XPS 13 2020.
This latest 2020 model from the company includes all that desired stuff we saw with the 2-in-1, except the ability to fold around.
Dell XPS 13 2020
Despite the wider display, the new XPS 13 is 2 percent more petite overall than its ancestor. As part of the redesign, the 2020 model also has a bigger keyboard (which now extends across the whole device) and a giant trackpad. It’s efficiently all of the innovations that Dell made with the XPS 13 2-in-1 last year, but they’re available on the non-2-in-1 model.
Dell claims the latest XPS 13’s screen to frame ratio is now up to 91.5 percent, even higher than HP Spectre x360. That makes the 13.4-inch display even more of a favorite, with no disturbing bezels to get in the way. The best thing you will love is that the XPS 13 drops most of the bottom display bezel that tormented the last model — now it seems as if the screen is directly connected to the keyboard.
The taller 16:10 aspect ratio also provides you a little more workspace than a conventional widescreen notebook. Just like earlier, you’ve got screen resolutions around 1080p and 4K, except this time they’re a little taller to consider for the taller size, and all of the displays support HDR and Dolby Vision.
Apart from the unique physical design, Dell is also improving the internal specifications, presenting Intel’s latest 10nm Ice Lake 10th Gen processors in Core i3, i5, and i7 options. Dell also allows a surplus of configuration options: 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB of RAM and 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB of SSD storage.
There are also three display options: a standard 1920 x 1200 FHD+ panel, an FHD+ display with a touchscreen, and a 4K 3840 x 2400 touchscreen with HDR 400. Ports are a pair of USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports (one on each side of the laptop, each of which supports both power and DisplayPort), a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microSD slot. Dell is also offering a Linux-based XPS 13 Developer Edition, which will be sold preloaded with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
If we compare it with the earlier model, some elements are still the same from the former XPS 13, though, like the keyboard. Dell’s opting to practice the same switches on the previous model instead of the more divisive low-profile keyboard on the XPS 13 2-in-1. The 2020 XPS 13 still uses the majestic tiny top-mounted camera that was launched on last year’s model, too.
The renovated XPS 13 will be available on January 7th with a starting price of $1,000 while the developer edition will arrive later on February 4th starting at $1,200.
