PC giant Dell is no stranger to putting a fresh new spin on their current products, as we’ve seen in their Alienware gaming laptops at this year’s Computex in Taipei, Taiwan. They certainly haven’t forgotten about their XPS premium consumer line.
The 2019 iteration of the XPS 13 2-in-1 is a testament to Dell pushing the boundaries of smaller and slimmer and supercharged to its products.
The laptop-tablet hybrid is one of the gems to have come out of the Dell Experience at Computex 2019, and it shows both inside and out. Boasting a sleek new aluminum body with diamond-cut sidewalls, a shiny new Gorilla Glass 5 screen, as well as an updated hinge design, the new XPS 13 2-in-1 more than makes up for its diminutive stature with enhanced durability.
The XPS 13 2-in-1 features an updated 16:10 aspect ratio InfinityEdge touch screen, fitting snugly in that super-small 13.4-inch display. The 84.9% screen-to-body ratio ensures that your visuals always come first before the laptop, and that’s always a good thing, especially if you’re a dedicated content creator. The addition of the new 10th-Gen Intel quad-core processors and the option to go 4K Ultra HD+ on the screen for crisper images and more vibrant colours are additional cherries on the icing, of course.
Similar to most of Dell’s new entries, the 2019 XPS 13 2-in-1 features the new Eyesafe display to ensure your eyes are harmed much less by the harsh blue light when working for long hours on it. Whether you’re at home, on the train or on the plane, the XPS 13 2-in-1 seems like a solid option as your commute or travel companion.
The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 will be available in July 2019, and will be priced starting at US$999.99.
If you’re in need of a much more powerful option than the XPS 13 2-in-1, there’s also the new XPS 15, which also got an upgrade over its 2018 predecessor.
This time, the new XPS 15 runs on the latest 9th-Gen Intel eight-core processors, as well as NVIDIA GeForce GTX 16 series graphics cards, ensuring you’ll always be up to the task with your projects.
To further complement the new supercharged internals, you’ll get to enjoy the fruits of your labour with the new UltraSharp 4K Ultra HD Infinity Edge 15.6-inch touch screen. This new screen provides you with arguably the best visuals one can find on a 15.6-inch laptop, delivering more brightness, saturated colours and crisper details. There’s also an OLED 4K version, but that one lacks the touch screen functionality. Not that we’re complaining.
The Dell XPS 15 will be available for purchase in June 2019. It will be priced from US$999.99 onwards.

Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
