Precision manufacturing: 100% of the enclosure is sculpted by a CNC (computer numerical control) machining process. A high precision, machine-milled aluminum chassis creates an elegant design with high build quality that’s stronger and stiffer than magnesium or plastic.
Cool and light: For the black palm rest with a platinum silver cover, carbon fiber inspired by the aerospace industry allow for maximum strength and minimal weight. Watch video
Superior screen: The latest Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 is strong, as well as impact and scratch resistance.
Gleaming sidewalls: Anodizing provides a superior, scratch-resistant surface, but here, edges are dipped a second time to further prevent damage from repeated plugging and unplugging of peripherals. Using this finish on the metal achieves the perfect color without using paint, which could chip away over time.
The finest details: Stainless inlayed logos are laser cut out of a sheet of stainless steel and dropped into the machined cut outline by hand.
Elevated essentials: Elements like the display, keys and touchpad are all larger for an easier, more optimized user experience. The XPS featur
es 6.8% larger 16:10 display, 17% larger touchpad and an edge-to-edge backlit keyboard with larger key caps as compare with previous generation.
One-handed open: The new twin coil press fit hinge is designed to maximize the screen to body ratio and enable 4-sided InfinityEdge. It also enables you to open with one hand, while staying stable when you are using the touchscreen.
Tiny but mighty

Killer™ Wireless: With advanced Wi-Fi 6 technology and theoretical throughput speeds of up to 2.4 Gbps, the Killer™ AX1650 is nearly three times as fast as the previous generation of 80MHz 2x2 AC products. It prioritizes streaming video, communication, and game traffic in your system for fast, smooth online experiences.
Advanced thermal redesign: From dual fans separated to spread heat over a larger area and a single heat pipe designed with a single evaporator and dual condenser, to hidden exhaust venting through the hinge, thermal design ensures you have the best performing system in the thinnest form factor possible. Additionally, your system is equipped with GORE™ Thermal Insulation, which provides thermal conductivity levels lower than air in a thin, flexible format to help keep components cool.
Stunning is an understatement
Display like no other: Take full advantage of HDR content’s superior dynamic range with Dolby Vision™, which can deliver colors never before seen on SDR PC displays. Dolby Vision™ content can deliver highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are up to 10 times darker.

Color that pops: Equipped with 100% sRGB and 90% DCI P3 color gamut, your screen delivers saturated colors while a 1500:1 contrast ratio allows you to see the brightest brights and darkest darks. And 500-nit brightness provides more clarity in bright light like outdoors, while a 0.65% anti-reflective coating cuts the glare of a glossy screen.
Easy on the eyes: Eyesafe® intelligently manages light energy at the source – selectively reducing harmful blue light and dispersing it across the light spectrum. Our unique solution combines RGB hardware and software adjustments to more effectively protect against blue light, while maintaining vivid color integrity.
Saving our seas: Recognized as a CES® 2018 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree, our black packaging trays are a step beyond recycled. 25% percent of the material consists of ocean plastics collected from coastal areas, while the remaining 75% is made up of other recycled plastics.
Energy efficient: The XPS 13 is ENERGY STAR® certified.
Safer materials: Free of materials like cadmium, lead, mercury and some phthalates, it’s also EPEAT® registered and BFR/PVC-free.
