Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook
Features & Design
With Windows 8.1 – for a smooth, versatile PC experience.
The smallest 33cm (13) on the planet
Large screen, small laptop: The virtually borderless infinity display cleverly fits a 33cm (13) display into the size of an 27.9cm (11) laptop.
Impressive screen size: The thin bezel frees up the screen space in this innovative design. The three-sided, virtually borderless infinity display measures a miniscule 5.2mm border: the thinnest frame on a notebook. With a slim bezel of less than 2% of the total display, you have more screen to love.
Thin build: Not only is the XPS 13 small, it’s also stunningly thin to make it an ideal mobile companion. At only 9-15mm thick and starting at only 1.18kg, it is easy to stick in your purse or bag while you are on the go.
Stunning UltraSharp™ QHD+ resolution (3200×1800): Choose the option that gives you 5.7 million pixels (276 ppi) for the ultimate screen performance with precise clarity and eye-popping details. There are over 2.5 times as many pixels as FHD, 5 times as many as HD. It’s also available with a Full HD non-touch display (1920×1080).
Easy to share: See content clearly from almost any angle with an IGZO2 IPS panel, providing a wide viewing angle of up to 170°. Enjoy the vibrant screen together with your friends.
Brighten your day: The screen is brilliant enough to watch movies in sunlight without missing the details. At 400-nit, it’s up to 100% brighter than a typical panel (200-nit) for a great view even outside. With a high color gamut of 72% and a high contrast ratio of 1000:1, more colors are represented so you can see the brightest brights and the darkest darks.
Touch friendly: The optional touch display lets you interact naturally with your technology, much like you are used to with your phone or tablet. Enjoy your apps, Adobe software and OS at your fingertips.
Small size. Big performance.
Start faster: Enjoy the speed, clarity and improved graphics with new Intel® Core™ processors.
Stay powered longer: With up to 15 hours of run time on the FHD display (and 11 hours on the QHD+), it’s leading the industry in battery life. Paired with the Dell Power Companion, you get up to 22 hours and the freedom to power all of your bonus devices.
Speedy start up: The XPS 13 boots and resumes in seconds thanks to a standard solid state drive and Intel® Rapid Start Technology.
Pinch, zoom and click with precision: The improved touch pad delivers the exact action you intend, every time, so no more jumping or floating cursors. It delivers fluid panning, pinching and zooming, for an experience that’s touch screen-smooth and quick, and similar to the gestures you are used to on screen. And with Accidental Activation Prevention, there are no more mis-clicks when your palm hits the touch pad.
See what you’ve been missing: This standard backlit keyboard lights up your keys and your ideas. No need to squint in low-light or no-light rooms while typing. Once you experience this added feature, you won’t be able to live without it.
Premium materials for a stunning design and durability
Tough stuff: Machined aluminum construction means the XPS 13 is precision-cut from a single block of aluminum for a sturdy, durable chassis.
Cool under pressure: XPS products use carbon fiber that is similar to what is used for some of the world’s high performance cars and racing bikes for a stellar combination of lightweight and strength. The palm rest is strong and thin like aluminum, but lighter and cooler to the touch.
Resists life’s “oops” moments: The Corning® Gorilla® Glass NBT™ QHD+ display is up to 10 times more scratch resistant than soda lime glass, so it helps prevent scuffs caused by handling, cleaning or wiping.
Greenest XPS laptop ever
Power-efficient: It’s more power-efficient than ever, enough to be ENERGY STAR® 6.0 certified.
Smarter materials: Built with the environment in mind, the XPS 13 is free of concerning materials like lead, mercury and some phthalates. The greenest XPS laptop ever, it’s also EPEAT® Gold registered and BFR/PVC-free.
Recycle-friendly: The rapidly renewable bamboo trays are 100% recyclable, so you won’t worry about your environmental footprint. And an impressive 90% of the laptop’s parts can be easily recycled or reused.
