New Dell XPS 13 (2020) Hands-On Review

by birtanpublished on April 9, 2021

The XPS 13 has been my favorite laptop for years now but it has been a while since the device has gotten a full redesign but ahead of CES is here we're getting a look at the brand new ones and a lis ton of new stuff that really make this the best XPS 13 I've ever seen now if you've seen the XPS 13 2 & 1 before you'll notice a lot of similarities here because Dell has basically brought over theif best features from there to include it in the standard clamshell XPS 13 like for example the screen here which is a new 16 by 10 screen as opposed to a 16 by 9 screen you get a little more height there in a little

More screen space and I think is a really good choice for Dell it feels like the right size and the right shape for what you want in a laptop if you don't know aspect ratios basically the same as what you get on a mac book or a mac and aromatic repair doesn't matter they all have 16 by 10 displays I really like the dell has continued to use these in the future I think we're going to see more of this from them in the future as well and then there's the keyboard which has also been lifted over from the XPS 13 2 & 1 it goes edge to edge now it's a

Little bit bigger fingerprint sensor is now in the top right built into the power button but I have to warn you this is not the same keyboard underneath the surface as the XPS 13 2 & 1 they've kind of ditched that butterfly style mechanism with the really shallow travel and this is a little more of a standard XPS 13 keyboard has an as a millimeter of travel feels really soft and nice to touch on but they have made some changes here and there larger key cap stuff like that it feels really nice to type on and with that new keyboard and that bigger displayed you have a little more room at

The bottom for a larger touchpad and that's exactly what Dell is done here it's a little bit wider a little bit taller and I always like to see bigger touch pads on 13-inch laptops I really do feel like every little centimeter of this device has been utilized to its full extent I love the really small bezel along the bottom now that chin is basically erased completely and the camera is still built into the top bezel but now extra feature there is an IR camera up here too so you can use Windows hello it's been a complaint for the XPS 13 for a while

Know that it hasn't featured Windows hello and now it's right up there you wouldn't even notice it because it's the same size bezel on top another small change has been brought from the 13 – and one is the actual materials that are being used here there's more aluminum in this device than there was in the future like on the sides here where you have a taller wall of aluminum it's kind of a diamond cut edge it looks really slick and of course that gives you access to the ports which is a USBC port here and a micro SD card slot and the other side you have just

One USB C port and a headphone jack now if you notice that's one less USB C port than last time and Dell says that they have to cut out that one just to fit in the larger keyboard and all the other things as they're changing with the design of it so you're down one USB C port on the new XPS 13 now of course we haven't gotten to test the performance or battery life on this new version of the XPS 13 but there is one big change that they've made over the last few and that this is comes with 10th gen isolate processors last year's model use the 10th gen common lick processors which

Did come with an option for a top-end core i7 with 6 cores which is the first time we ever saw that in a laptop of this size however going back to isolate does kind of prepare Dell for the future which is gonna be all about 10 nanometer processors which the ice like is and of course get those Irish Plus graphics which do you get you some decent gaming when you hop up to the top level of the core i7 g7 option so that is a new 2020 XPS 13 obviously it still comes in white and black 4 color options you should see this dropping in the next few months okay thanks for checking out this video
