Dell has big plans at this year’s CES in Las Vegas. It’s bringing refreshed versions of many of its popular models, including the XPS 13. The American computer technology company is introducing a new version of its G5 and G7 gaming laptops. It’s also introducing a new Inspiron 7000 convertible laptop. Lastly, it’s also launching an improved version of Dell Mobile Connect, a PC-smartphone wireless integration solution.

First announced at CES in January 2015, the Dell XPS 13 has come a long way, and along the way it has been getting slimmer and lighter. It was recognised all along by its uniquely positioned web camera, which sits below the display for slimmer bezels. But that’s no longer the case. The 2019 Dell XPS 13 sports a top-mounted HD web camera like most other laptops but manages to have an InfinityEdge display (read: display with slim bezels) because of its small size. According to Dell, the webcam is only 2.25mm in size. It’s also the first Dell model to feature Dolby Vision.

Both laptops come with Alienware Command Center and a four-zone backlit keyboard with RGB colour customisation.
