Dell has today introduced an updated line-up of its acclaimed XPS laptops that is powered by Intel’s 11th Gen Tiger Lake processors.

The new XPS 13 is also the first laptop from Dell that comes with Intel Evo certification, which means faster wake time of less than 1 second, at least 9 hours of battery life, fast charging, WiFi 6 and Thunderbolt 4.

Starting with the design, Dell is retaining the familiar 4-side bezel-less approach for the display and has used premium machined aluminum for the chassis while the palm rest employs black carbon fiber or white woven glass fiber. Both the new Dell offerings feature a 13.4-inch display that is offered in FHD+ as well as 4K UHD+ resolutions with up to 500  nits of peak brightness and 178-degree viewing angle. Dell says it has managed to fit a 6.8% larger display in a smaller chassis, achieving an impressive 91.5% screen-to-body ratio while the aspect ratio is 16:10 on the new Dell XPS 13.
