Laptops and Ultrabooks from a manufacturer such as Dell are considered to be some of the best. The Dell XPS 13 has undergone an update this year. She did not receive any innovative or revolutionary design solutions. Its creators decided that it was enough to focus on the strengths of the gadget, which can simply be strengthened to maintain status.
Appearance and characteristics
There have been no dramatic changes in appearance. Anyone who looks at the device for the first time will think that it is more than stated in its characteristics. This visual trick is due to the large (for this class) keyboard and thin bezel InfinityEdge screen.
Dell XPS 13 received a metal case, which makes it solid. At the same time, it is thin, which adds portability to the device and increases the number of benefits.
The keyboard has received a design dubbed "carbon fiber". It should be noted that not all users will like it, but this approach allowed the manufacturer to reduce the weight of the device. It is only 1.2 kg.
The body of the ultrabook has only black and white colors. The first one is suitable for the office, and the second option will appeal to those who are tired of formal tones.
Dell XPS 13 can be supplied in three configurations. All of them, without options, have an IPS-matrix with a diagonal of 13.4 inches and an aspect ratio of 16:10. The first type of configuration provides for a non-touch FHD + screen with a resolution of 1920 ? 1200 pixels. The second differs from it only in the possibility of touch control.
The third option has a UHD + display, 3840 ? 2400 pixels with HDR 400, 90% DCI-P3 and Gorilla Glass 6 protection.
At the heart of the hardware stuffing of the Dell XPS 13 is the Intel Ice Lake i7-1065G7 processor (4 cores, 8 threads 1.3-3.9 GHz) with UHD Graphics (integrated), Gen11, up to 64 EU.
Up to 32 GB of RAM helps the chipset work. There is a built-in drive with a capacity of 256 GB to 2 TB of ROM. Autonomy of work is provided by a 52 Wh battery. To charge it, there is a 45W adapter that connects via the USB Type-C port.
The Ultrabook is equipped with a second port of the same, a headphone jack and MicroSD v4.0. This is clearly not enough, but the company does not hide that they sacrificed several ports for the design of the model. Another disadvantage of the device will be the need to carry additional cables with you, since the adapter is equipped with USB-C / USB-A sockets.
The screen of this laptop is striking in its size. Especially when you consider that it has a small body. This is due to the thin bezels, but the main reason lies in the presence of a new type of aspect ratio: 16:10.
Therefore, the display appears to be larger than it actually is. It is well suited for all kinds of tasks.
The quality of the transmitted image is high. Content is transmitted in 4K format. It is beautiful even when running regular programs, and when watching Netflix or YouTube files, it is practically unmatched.
Technical indicators only confirm what has been said. The contrast is 1708: 1 and the color gamut is 99% for sRGB, 73.7% for Adobe RGB, and 79.2% for DCI-P3.
The brightness is provided up to 360.7 nits, which is also good. This display may not be the best in its class, but it is definitely one of the best.
Keyboard & Camera
The keyboard and trackpad in the Dell XPS 13 are among the highest quality and most functional in their class. The responsiveness is high here, the keys are thin. This gives the feeling of a large range of key travel, but you get used to it quickly.
The trackpad produces a distinctive click when pressed. It has optimal travel range and the same responsiveness across the entire device.
The device is equipped with a fingerprint scanner, which is located in the upper right corner of the panel, in the power button. Also, the Dell XPS 13 has Windows Hello facial recognition functionality. It is equipped with the device's webcam, which fits into a tiny frame above the screen.
Performance and autonomy
Due to the presence of an advanced processor with a sufficient amount of RAM, the ultrabook copes with all the daily tasks typical for gadgets of this class. Its filling allows you to open simultaneously up to 20 tabs in Chrome and immediately work with text content in multiple windows.
However, the device is not suitable for gaming or interaction with heavy graphics. You can play non-demanding games, even at medium or high settings, but you shouldn't count on anything more.
We should also mention the sound capabilities of Dell XPS 13. The speakers are small, but of high quality. Even the music lover will love their stereo sound.
The autonomy of the device is about 4.5-5 hours. This is a little, but not a little. In any case, you don't have to charge the gadget several times during the working day. It will be enough to connect the ultrabook to the network once for a couple of hours.
Fans of working with ultrabooks on Windows Dell XPS 13 2020 will love it. Especially if they are not limited in finances. Fashionable looks, cool equipment, good sound pushes for this.
The disadvantages of the model include a small number of connectors, low autonomy, high price.
