Scoring a redesign, the new XPS features an edge-to-edge display in a 16:10 format that’s 7 per cent larger than last year’s model. The new display offers improved colour accuracy and resolution with FHD+ and UHD+ options to capture precise detail and sharp images. Dell has also included its Eyesafe technology with acts as a built-in blue light blocker.

The XPS 2-in-1 is Dell’s first laptop powered by Intel’s 11th Generation Intel Core processors along with Xe graphics. It features adaptive performance that changes the power of the CPU according to the workload. Dell has also reengineered the thermal design to cool the higher-performing processor while creating an overall eight per cent thinner 2-in-1. The new laptop is said to offer long battery life, but Dell hasn’t specified exactly how long.

The XPS is built from CNC machined aluminium with polished diamond-cut sidewalls, a choice between carbon fibre and woven glass palm rests and durable Gorilla Glass. Dell has also elevated the essentials with a larger touchpad, edge-to-edge MagLev keyboard, Thunderbolt 4 support and a new hinge design.

We’re always going to favour the 2-in-1 thanks to its ability to switch orientation for both work and play, although Dell is also launching a more affordable 13-inch XPS without the ability to convert. This laptop possesses most of the same features and comes in at $500 less. You can pick this XPS laptop from October 20 for $2,499.

Both laptops come in a sleek, black gift box made from sustainably sourced materials including a mix of recycled ocean-bound plastics, locally recycled plastic, and recycled corrugate. The new Dell XPS 13 launched on October 2, however, the frost with arctic white glass fibre palm rest is yet to be unveiled.
