Powered by Windows 10 and the latest Intel 8th Generation Quad Core processor, the XPS 13 delivers superior mobile performance with fast booting SSDs up to 1TB in a sleek form factor. Its stunning InfinityEdge display fits this 13-inch laptop in an 11-inch frame. It’s a full 30 percent (3.4mm) thinner as well as lighter, starting at just 2.67 pounds, with a higher resolution display – incorporating 2.5 million more pixels with 4K Ultra HD compared to the previous QHD+ for great, saturated and accurate color.
