Dell is refreshing its XPS 13 line of thin and lightweight laptops with new models sporting 11th-gen Intel Core chips, Thunderbolt 4 ports, and faster memory. The new Dell XPS 13 laptop and Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 convertible are going to be available within the US and Canada starting September 30, 2020 with starting prices of $1000 and $1,250, respectively. The laptops should be available in Europe and Asia within the coming weeks. For those trying to find something a touch less Window-ish, Dell also offers the XPS 13 Developer Edition which comes with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS pre-installed plus any XPS 13 owner are going to be ready to download the Ubuntu install Dell uses and run it during a dual-boot configuration with Windows if they need.
Dell is additionally offering an updated Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition laptop with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Linux. This thin and lightweight laptop features a 13.4 inch display that’s available with a choice of 1920 x 1200 pixel or 3840 x 2400 pixel display panels with optional support for touch input on the FHD+ screen.
Dell says the notebook features a 91.5 percent screen-to-body ratio because of slim bezels around all sides of the display.
The Dell XPS 13 laptop comes during a choice of black, silver, or white colors. all of them have aluminum bodies, but the black version and silver models have a black carbon fiber palm rest and keyboard deck, while the white version features a woven optical fiber palm rest instead.
Both the XPS 13 laptop and therefore the 2-in-1 convertible are available with a choice of processors starting from the entry-level Intel Core i3-1115G4 to the Core i7-1185G7. Dell offers 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB memory options. the great news is that Dell is including LPDD4x-4267 MHz memory, which is an upgrade from the 3733 MHz RAM utilized in the previous-gen XPS 13. And it looks like the 4GB entry-level option is gone permanently .
The bad news is that the RAM is soldered to the motherboard, so you won’t be ready to upgrade within the future – if you would like quite 8GB of memory then you’ll got to buy it once you buy the laptop.Other features include a Windows Hello-compatible IR camera and fingerprint reader, support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5, a backlit keyboard, a glass covered touchpad, and a 52 Wh battery.
