Introducing Dell Cinema

CinemaStream: Killer Wireless channels maximum bandwidth to your videos or music for a seamless, stutter-free experience.
CinemaSound: Waves MaxxAudio® Pro boosts volume and clarifies every tone, so you experience studio-quality sound.
An unparalleled view
Less border, more pixels: We've improved every part of the display. Enjoy a screen that seems endless with a 23% thinner InfinityEdge border—just 4mm wide for an 80.7% screen-to-body ratio. See every detail you didn't know you were missing with optional 4K Ultra HD resolution that packs in 8 million pixels.
Picture perfect: By maximizing the color spectrum with 100% sRGB color and a 1500:1 contrast ratio, every shadow takes shape and even the brightest scenes gain definition.
Beautiful from any angle: The anti-reflective screen combined with superior 400-nit brightness frees you to enjoy your entertainment outdoors. Plus, the IPS panel provides a wider viewing angle, so you can share your screen without missing a thing.
More might, even more slight
World’s smallest 13-inch laptop*: Your entertainment can go with you everywhere—starting at just 2.67 pounds, the smaller, thinner, lighter XPS 13 is ready for take-off. Perfectly-sized for airplane tray tables, you won’t even notice when the passenger in front of you reclines their seat.
Star performer: With new 8th Gen Intel® Quad Core processors, more cores means increased performance, even with multiple applications running. Plus, Dell Power Manager, engineered by Dell, allows you to select the power mode that dynamically delivers the maximum amount of power from your processor, while intelligently monitoring and managing system temperatures. Add it all up and you get the most powerful 13-inch laptop in its class*.
Work or play all day: You'll experience the longest battery life of any 13-inch laptop*—up to 19 hours, 46 minutes* on a Full HD model when using Word or Excel.
Faster memory, more storage: Your system boots and resumes in seconds thanks to up to 1TB of solid state drive storage. Multi-task in a flash even on intense applications with up to 16GB of memory.
Scorching looks that keep their cool
White hot: Inspired by runway trends, the rose gold version of the new XPS 13 debuts an authentic alpine white woven glass fiber palm rest developed specifically for Dell. Our design team worked tirelessly to get the details just right—carefully crafted backlighting, UV- and stain-resistant coating to prevent yellowing over time and staining, and coordinated packaging and accessories.
Stunning strength: The XPS 13 is cut from a single block of aluminum, so it’s more durable than a machine that’s pieced together. Inspired by the aerospace industry, the carbon fiber and woven glass fiber of the palm rest allow for maximum strength and minimal weight. Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 is twice as damage resistant compared to competitive products.
Small details, big impact: Aesthetically, less is more. So we’ve inlayed a stainless XPS logo, laser-etched the regulatory details and color-matched the feet for a sleeker look. The brightened platinum silver finish truly shines.
Cooler than ever: The XPS 13 is the first laptop built with GORE™ Thermal Insulation, which provides thermal conductivity levels lower than air in a thin, flexible format, to keep your laptop cool while it works hard. While the Gore insulation directs heat out of the device, dual fans and heat pipes further lower the temperature of your XPS, enabling greater performance in a thinner form factor.
Advanced technology made simple
You are the password: Choose between two secure, personalized ways to log on. The infrared camera with Windows Hello recognizes your face, unlocking your XPS with secure facial recognition technology. The fingerprint reader integrated into the power button lets you log on with just a touch.
Strike up a conversation: Your XPS 13 responds to your voice from up to 14 feet away, thanks to four built-in mics, Microsoft Cortana and Waves-enabled speech technology. Control playlists and access schedules regardless of background noise.
Leading-edge connectivity: The Thunderbolt™ 3 multi-use Type-C ports allow you to charge your laptop, connect to multiple devices (including support for up to two 4K displays) and enjoy data transfers up to 40Gbps -- 8 times that of a USB 3.0*.
Advanced docking: The XPS 13 can be used with Dell docking solutions, featuring single-cable connections for power, Ethernet, audio and video. Add the optional Dell Thunderbolt™ Dock for faster data transfers and support for up to three Full HD displays or two 4K displays.
