When it comes to premium thin and light ultrabooks, Dell’s XPS line of laptops leads the way. The XPS series has 2 lineups: The smaller 13-inch XPS 13 and the more powerful 15.6-inch XPS 15. Dell keeps refreshing these laptops taking in feedback from the users. It was evident when Dell updated its XPS 13 with changes in camera placement in 2019. And now, Dell has again updated the XPS 13, dubbed the XPS 13 (9300) 2020; this time providing a bigger display and the latest Intel processor. Lets learn more about the new XPS 13 2020 along with its price and availability in Nepal.
Dell XPS 13 Lineup
Dell introduced the XPS lineup in 1993 to compete with the Gateway (now owned by Acer). It gained a massive success as it brought high-end specs at reasonable prices. Dell overhauled the line in 2005 to focus on the gaming community. It even competed against Alienware and Falcon Northwest of that time. But since the acquisition of Alienware by Dell in 2005, the XPS line has been advertised as a performance machine build for content creators. The XPS 15 holds this title, as it comes with the GTX Graphics card and the H-series of the processor. The XPS 13 is more of an ultrabook with Integrated graphics and low-powered U-processor.
Dell XPS 13 (2020)
The new XPS 13 comes with a taller display. This time Dell has included a 13.4-inch panel with a 16:10 aspect ratio. With this, Dell has got rid off the bezels at the bottom of the screen. Users complained of the touchpad on the previous model, so Dell has enlarged the touchpad. The keyboard is also stretched across the length of the device. It almost reminds us of the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (2019). Even with all these changes, the new XPS 13 is 2% smaller than its predecessor.
The XPS 13 will now be powered by Intel’s Ice Lake 10th Generation processor. You can choose from core i3, i5, and i7. Memory-wise, you get to choose from 4 RAM options – 4GB/8GB/16GB/32GB and 4 SSD storage options- 256GB/512GB/1TB/2TB. Here you get a faster 3733MHz LPDDR4x RAM too. For display, you can choose from an FHD+ panel, an FHD+ touchscreen, and a 4K touchscreen.
For connectivity, there is a pair of USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microSD slot. There will be an XPS 13 Developer Edition which will come with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
