Dell has announced updated versions of its XPS 13 2-in-1 and the XPS 13 laptop. Both feature new thin modern designs, 11th Gen Intel Core processors and Intel Iris X e graphics.

The 2-in-1’s advanced thermal design enables thin form factor (only 14.35mm thin) with back venting, vapor air chamber and dual fans to cool higher powered processors. 

The InfinityEdge display in 16:10 aspect ratio is larger and designed to offer more productivity. 

The 2-in-1’s immersive displays are engineered with best-in-class panel technology with enhanced contrast ratios, expanded colour space and pinpoint accurate resolution (100% sRGB + 90% DCI-P3 color gamut, HDR certified on 4K+, Dolby Vision™, 500-nit panes, 4K+ resolution). Eyesafe display technology reduces harmful blue light and maintains vivid colour.

The 2-in-1 also has Dell’s smallest camera ever, which at 2.25mm is now infrared with Windows Hello capabilities. 

The device is precision crafted from CNC machined aluminum, aerospace-inspired carbon fiber or woven glass fiber palm rests and Corning  Gorilla Glass 6 for a durable, lightweight design. The essentials are elevated with larger display, edge-to-edge MagLev keyboard and touchpad. 

It will be available in platinum silver with either  black carbon fiber or frost with arctic white woven glass fiber palm rest. 

It supports Dell Premium Active Pen with magnetic attach for a natural writing experience and tilt support for detailed shading

Dell Mobile Connect provides a seamless wireless integration between smartphones and PCs on both the 2-in-1 and the XPS 13.

The latest version of the XPS 13 laptop boasts improved performance and a larger 4-sided InfinityEdge display with a 91.5 per cent screen-to-body ratio.

The edge-to-edge keyboard has larger keycaps and a larger touchpad 

Dell claims the XPS 13 will deliver up to 19 hours of battery life on FHD. 

A new Linux-based XPS 13 Developer Edition comes preloaded with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and represents the 10th generation of Project Sputnik’s developer-targeted XPS 13 

The entire XPS 2020 laptop family now arrives wrapped in a gift-box style package made from sustainably sourced materials, including a mix of recycled ocean-bound plastics, locally recycled plastic, and recycled corrugate. This takes the company one step closer to reaching its Moonshot Goal of using 100% sustainable packaging in all Dell products by 2030.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
