Dell XPS 13
A laptop that erases borders –
starting with the display
The smallest 13-inch on the planet with the world’s first
InfinityEdge display
The XPS 13 cleverly fits a stunning 13.3-inch display in
an 11-inch size laptop, making the it the smallest 13inch laptop on the planet. The XPS 13 has a unique
virtually borderless InfinityEdge display, with only a
5.2mm bezel on the top and both sides. That’s the
thinnest frame on a notebook today. What does all of
that mean to you? There’s less bezel, so you can
literally take your view to the edge, no matter what you
are doing.
Stunning view from any angle
Enjoy eye-popping clarity and detail with an
UltraSharp™ Quad HD+ display, which boasts an
incredible 5.7 million pixels. That is 4.4 million more
pixels than an HD+ and 2.5 times that of a Full HD
display. High resolution means whatever you are
doing, your image is precise and clear. With IPS wideviewing angles, you can enjoy 170° views on a
brilliantly bright, 400-nit screen. High color gamut and
contrast ratio provide rich color. Movies come to life.
Presentations shine. And photos can be edited with
pinpoint precision.
Battery life leadership
Depending on how you use your laptop, your battery
life will vary. Dell uses a variety of battery benchmarks
to test our XPS laptops. When you are using
productivity applications, like Word or Excel,
experience the longest battery life of any 13-inch
laptop with up to 22 hours, 21 minutes1 of continual
use on a FHD model. Enjoy up to 13 hours of battery
life when streaming Netflix content3 or browsing the
web with Microsoft Edge2. On the go for even longer?
Get up to 11 additional hours4 of battery life (up to 33
hours1, 4 total) with the optional Dell Power
Companion. A power reserve for all of your devices
(PCs and tablets), it quickly charges via your power
So much punch, so little effort
We’ve packed more power into an already incredible
design. The XPS 13 packs a 7th generation Intel®
processor up to Core™ i7 and Intel HD 620 Graphics
into its slim frame (9-15mm). Memory is expandable to
16GB and with solid state drives, the XPS 13 boots
from cold in seconds. And whatever state it’s in, it
comes back in a snap. With a maximum solid state
capacity of up to 1TB, you have plenty of room to
store your music, videos and photos. To accelerate
performance even more, the XPS 13 also offers faster
PCIe drives. And here’s the kicker, the XPS weighs as
little as 2.7 lbs.*
Faster and more reliable wireless
Killer™ 1535 Wireless-AC provides the strongest and
most reliable Wi-Fi connection and was designed
specifically to make your online videos, voice and
games play faster and smoother. Killer is smartest. It
automatically detects classifies and prioritizes traffic,
so your most important data takes priority. Killer is
fast. By identifying which network packets are for
video, voice, or games, Killer delivers your critical
packets immediately no matter what other, less
important, network traffic is ahead of it – thus
eliminating unnecessary latency and lag. Killer also
supports Multi-user MIMO technology which can
dramatically increase network efficiency and
throughput by working with a MU-MIMO enabled
access point.
The XPS 13 features a Thunderbolt 3 port, which is the
newest generation of Type-C connectivity, enabling up
to 8x the transfer speeds of USB 3.0 at up to 40Gbps
and is twice as fast as Thunderbolt 2. It is a multi-use
port than can charge your device, power up to two 4K
displays and supports one cable docking.

packaging we choose to our recycle options for your
old PC, the environment is top of mind. XPS laptops
are designed with smarter materials, by avoiding
materials of concern including cadmium, lead,
hexavalent chromium, mercury, some phthalates, and
they are all BFR/PVC-free.1 All XPS notebooks ship in
recyclable, compost-friendly packaging, including our
highly renewable bamboo trays, and we offer options

offering in the industry with consumer drop off in over

Crafted without compromise
XPS laptops are artfully constructed with premium
materials for maximum durability. Sleek and beautiful
overall design is a side effect of careful performance
driven construction. Machined aluminum provides
strength and durability. The top cover and base are
precision cut from a single block of aluminum. The
carbon fiber palm rest is strong like aluminum, and
thin, but feels cooler to the touch. Finally, edge-toedge Corning® Gorilla Glass NBT™ on the QHD+
display is bonded to the aluminum display back for
added strength. With these materials, XPS products
are strong and durable, look stunning, and feel even
better in your hands. Now also available in rose gold.
