The Updated Dell XPS 13 Debuts Next Week.
The XPS Thirteen from Dell is considered probably the best Windows laptop in the past five years, if not longer. And now that 2020 CES is firing up out in Las Vegas next week it looks like Dell is going to impress consumers and techies once again by updating its star attraction with an amazingly large 13.4’ display screen that can change in a matter of seconds to the even more amazing 16:10 ratio of aspect. A taller display, says Dell, means they will dispense with any bottom bezel — and this will give the new XPS 13 a more elegant look as well as making it easier to handle. More ergonomic, too; less chance of developing carpal tunnel syndrome from long hours spent typing on it.
Yet even though the XPS 13 sports a bigger display, the new version really is two percent smaller in every aspect that counts than was its predecessor. And part of such a redesign means that the 2020 version will also have a bigger keyboard (stretching across the whole shebang) plus a bigger and micro-edge trackpad to keep food crumbs and other particulates out of the keyboard. Savvy users will quickly intuit that most of these upgrades and changes were available on the Dell XPS 13 two-in-one in 2019, so the real change is the fact that now they are available for all non-two-in-one models as well. This should be a significant savings to consumers on a tight budget.
