The XPS line is Dell’s most awarded line of devices, celebrated for its best-in-class technologies, great build and materials, and the ability to blend power and beauty. Dell is taking that commitment one step further with the launch of the new XPS 13 2-in-1, redesigned and higher performing than the previous generation.
“We’re thrilled to be back at Computex further spotlighting the exceptional innovation we kicked off earlier this year at CES 2019”, said Ray Wah, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer and Small Business Product Group, Dell. “We’re always listening to the needs of our customers and we’ve really delivered with smaller and sleeker designs, flawless detail and high performance in each of these new devices.”
The display experience has been improved, refining the InfinityEdge display in a 16:10 format, and now offers an edge-to-edge screen with a 7% larger viewing experience. Dell’s smallest webcam is now located at the top bezel, a long-awaited ask from customers. The new display offers improved colour accuracy and resolution with FHD+ and UHD+ options to capture precise detail and sharp images, as well as the ability to enjoy HDR content with an HDR400 certified UHD+ panel and Dolby Vision.
With the addition of Eyesafe display, Dell is helping reduce potentially harmful blue light emissions while maintaining colour gamut performance. Because today’s device-driven culture has people staring at devices for hours on end each day and consuming high levels of blue light, Dell has partnered with Eyesafe to intelligently manage light energy at the source to selectively reduce harmful blue light and disperse it across the light spectrum.
What was previously a fanless design is now an actively cooled 15W design for up to 2.5 times more performance than the previous generation.
The XPS 13 2-in-1 is Dell’s first laptop with Intel’s 10th Gen Intel Core processors. It features adaptive performance based on the latest Intel Dynamic Tuning Technology, which proactively changes the power of the CPU according to the performance of the workload. Dell has re-engineered the thermal design to cool the higher performing processor, while creating an overall 8% thinner 2-in-1 than the previous generation.
The new design combines expert craftsmanship and premium materials, including CNC machined aluminium with high polished diamond cut sidewalls, black carbon fibre or arctic white woven glass fibre palm rests, along with Gorilla Glass 5 for both durability and beauty. Dell has also elevated the essentials with a larger touchpad, edge-to-edge MagLev keyboard, and new cleverly crafted hinge design.
The new XPS 13 2-in-1 will be available in South Africa from August 2019.
