Disclaimer: I have been compensated in the form of the Dell XPS 13, however all opinions shared below are my own.
The Dell XPS 13 is known as the “Category killer” and has won countless awards in just a short time. It was created to be the best performing notebook of its size, no wonder it has changed the way I work and play on the go! The Dell XPS 13 is now my new favorite notebook to blog on, binge watch my favorite Netflix shows on and more. Don’t believe me? Here’s 5 reasons why the Dell XPS 13 replaced my Macbook Air below.
5. Great Battery Life
There’s The XPS 13 has industry-leading battery life, getting over 15 hours1 of run time on a single charge. On the go for even longer? Get up to 7 additional hours1 of battery life (up to 22 hours1 total) with the Dell Power Companion. A power reserve for all of your devices (PCs and tablets), it quickly charges via your power adapter.
4. Smallest 13″ Laptop Packs A Vibrant Punch With A Huge HD Infiniti Screen
It blew me away that the Dell XPS 13 is the smallest 13″ laptop in the world. When compared to my MacBook Air 13″ the Dell XPS 13 measured a 13.3-inch display in an 11-inch size laptop, making the XPS 13 the smallest 13-inch laptop on the planet. The XPS 13 has a unique virtually borderless infinity 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 there’s more to enjoy. You can literally take your view to the edge, no matter what you are doing.
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 wide-viewing 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.
3. Lightweight Dell XPS 13 Makes Working On The Go Super Easy
Working on the go isn’t always the easiest thing to do. But thanks to my lightweight Dell XPS 13 not only makes it easier, but it also makes it more enjoyable too. (When you’re lugging your office around 24/7 every ounce counts!) It weighs as light as 2.6lbs.
2. But Wait, It’s A Touch Screen Laptop Too?
I remember when I first owned my Macbook I swiped the screen in hopes that something magical would happen. I mean, I knew that it wasn’t a touch screen notebook, but oh the joy I would’ve had if a swipe on the screen would’ve made something happen. You could imagine my excitement during my first touch screen experience on the Dell XPS 13. I can resize, scroll, select, edit and more using my fingertips – on a notebook?!? Yeah, I’m loving it!
1. Because Carbon Fiber Makes Everything Look Sexier.
Technology isn’t always judged by the way it works or improves your life, it’s often judged by they way it looks and makes you feel. You can tell that the Dell XPS 13 notebook was thoughtfully designed for performance and function. Every material was selected to enhance performance and every design decision made is made with purpose. XPS laptops are precision crafted from premium materials like machined aluminum, carbon fiber and hardened Corning® Gorilla® Glass NBT™ for incredible durability and a superior experience.
Starting at $799 – it doesn’t get any better than this!
Working on a Windows based notebook will still take a little getting use to, but there’s nothing quite like revising your first computer love. Packed with power, a vibrant HD viewing experience and infiniti screen – my Dell XPS 13 has quickly become my favorite notebook and I look forward to sharing my latest experiences as part of the Intel inner circle with you soon.
