With the Consumer Electronics Show just a few days away, Dell, isn’t waiting around for the expo. The company has announced a number of products today across multiple portfolios including an updated version of the XPS 13, several new displays and even additions to the Latitude lineup of machines.
New Dell XPS-13
The Dell XPS 13 is the first of the many product announcements Dell is making today. The new XPS 13 fits a 13.4-inch display in a chassis of an 11-inch laptop. Additionally, Dell claims that the XPS 13 houses the world’s first four-sided near-bezelless display. While narrow bezels are always nice, perhaps the most notable change to the long-standing thin-and-light is the 16:10 aspect ratio for the display. The additional horizontal resolution is always great to have and will be appreciated by those who tend to work a lot on spreadsheets. The new XPS 13 also features slightly broader keycaps, placed in the all too familiar carbon fiber keyboard island. The Dell XPS 13 will feature processors from Intel’s 10th generation Ice Lake processors. In addition to the new XPS 13, Dell is also announcing a Developer Version of the XPS 13 which will come with Ubuntu 18.04LTS instead of Windows 10.
