Over the few years windows laptops makers are giving a very tough competition to the Apple’s MacBook lineups. With Dell’s XPS series is no such exception. Over the years, Dell has been improving its XPS lineup for its customers.
With the release of XPS (2019) model 9380, Dell has finally fixed the web camera issue. Earlier, it was located on the bottom chin of the display which makes it really odd for the Skype or any video call. In 2019 model, the engineers of the Dell managed to put a 2mm web camera on the top bezel of the display.
Display and Design
Dell XPS 13 is a beautiful looking laptop especially the white color model. XPS is made up of the aluminium mate finish design and the body is made up of carbon fiber. Dell XPS comes with infinity edge display which is available in full HD and 4K display panel. Both the screens look perfect. But 4K panel supports touch along with HDR and is Dolby Vision certified. However, you won’t be able to notice a huge difference between the two-screen due to its size.
As far as keyboard and trackpad are concerned they haven’t changed. They are same as the last years models. Typing on XPS is a pleasure giving experience with good tactile feedback. It has the glass touchpad with windows precision drivers. It’s better but not the best in the class. It would be appreciated if Dell would have increased the size of the trackpad.
Dell XPS offers a wide variety of specifications. The base model comes with 8thGen i3 Processor and 4GB RAM with 128GB SSD storage and upgradable up to Core i7and 16GB RAM with 1TB SSD storage. XPS comes with the Intel UHD Graphics 620.
XPS handles day to day task very easily. Even it can manage to perform good at photo and 1080p video editing. Its performance is surely better than the other windows laptop in the market with good battery performance.
A single full charge renders 13 hrs battery in 1080p model and 8 hrs in 4K model due to its high screen resolution. The audio quality on XPS is better than the average laptops but it lacks base in the sound.
As 2019 model is 23% thinner than last year’s model it has no tradition USB ports. However, it has 2 thunderbolts USB type-cports and 1 USB type-calong with micro-SD cardslot and 3.5 mmaudio jack. Apart from these ports, Dell has also included a traditional USB type-A dongle in the box.
Dell XPS 13 is powerful and your go to laptop. It can be carried out easily as it is only 1.29 kg. It’s smoothly handles the day to day task without any lag. But it’s not perfect for high end gaming and 4K video editing.
If you are planning to buy this laptop than do not chose the base model. Chose the model with core i5 with 8GB RAM along with 512GB SSD storage. Dell XPS 13 is one the best windows laptop in the market that’s the reason I quotes it as “Almost a perfect laptop”.
