The mo­ment we pulled the XPS 13 out of the box, we felt it was noth­ing less than stun­ning. We could not find a more ap­pro­pri­ate ad­jec­tive to de­scribe the de­sign in a sin­gle word. The XPS 13 is an amal­ga­ma­tion of at­ten­tion to de­tail and great en­gi­neer­ing found only on Swiss watches.

DE­SIGN

The XPS 13 is crafted out of a sin­gle piece alu­minium like it’s pre­de­ces­sor, but it now sports a dis­play with even thin­ner bezels.

KEY­BOARD AND TRACK­PAD

The XPS 13 fea­tures a stan­dard key­board lay­out with 1.3 mm key travel, which is not a lot but the keys of­fer a nice, mushy tac­tile feel.
