Outline

The new Dell XPS 13 is designed to be the best performing laptop PC of its size. It is the smallest 13-inch laptop currently around the world with an enclosure size of a typical 11-inch laptop. The XPS 13 features a 5.2 mm bezel around the stunning Quad HD+ 13 display that nearly eliminates the boarder around the active screen which means less bezel and more viewing space for the user.

Evaluation

The greatest feature about the Ultra-Slim Laptop PC would have to be its compact size and slimness. It arranges the internal parts and display of a 13-inch notebook PC into an enclosure that is the same size as that of an 11-inch notebook PC. To do this, a bezel size of 5.2 mm that is as small as possible was achieved. Its display produces an exceptionally stylish impression on the whole that could be described as almost entirely frameless. It has also been praised for its high-resolution image quality and long-lasting battery, which was achieved through the use of a power-saving display.
