Dell XPS 13 (9380)

 

Dell moves the webcam to where it always should have been, fixing one of the very few faults of the drop-dead gorgeous, highly capable XPS 13. Earning our highest recommendation and a rare five-star rating, the XPS 13 (9380) is, indisputably, the best...

Compact and classy. Beautiful rose-gold-and-white color scheme. 4K touch screen. Two Thunderbolt 3 ports plus USB-C.

No HDMI or USB Type-A ports. 4K display isn't the best for battery life. Loaded models get pricey.

Bottom Line: Dell moves the webcam to where it always should have been, fixing one of the very few faults of the drop-dead gorgeous, highly capable XPS 13. Earning our highest recommendation and a rare five-star rating, the XPS 13 (9380) is,...

The Dell XPS 13 still has an up-the-nose webcam problem

 

Before you even ask, yes, the otherwise excellent new Dell XPS 13 still has its up-the-nose webcam.

The new XPS 13 body is smaller, with better internal cooling and a sharp-looking all-white interior. The nearly bezel-free screen still looks great and there's a fingerprint reader hidden under the power button.

The system's biggest quirk, a below-the-screen webcam, remains. Touch isn't standard, and most of the ports have been replaced by USB-C.

With a new design that catches up to the competition, Dell's XPS 13 remains one of the best all-around 13-inch laptops, but everyone's biggest gripe remains unchanged.

Dell XPS 13 review: Stunning screen and compact design make this the first great laptop of 2015

 

Taking a hint from TV-makers, the bezel narrows to nearly nothing, while performance gets a small Broadwell boost.

Dell's revamped XPS 13 has a nearly borderless display and a very small body for a 13-inch laptop, plus the latest Intel CPUs.

Upgrades can get expensive; a touchscreen isn't included by default; the boost from the new CPU is minimal.

This new Dell XPS 13 is the first great laptop of 2015, but it owes that title more to a smart design revamp than Intel's new processors.

Dell XPS 13 9380 review: The best little laptop fixes its biggest problem

 

Dell finally caved to convention and moved the super Dell XPS 13's camera up to the top bezel.

Camera finally back on top and no more turkey waddle neck ; Intel's Whiskey Lake U offers a decent but marginal performance bump

Doesn't support Windows Hello facial login ; 1080P version lacks touch screen support option

There’s one more very important thing inside the XPS 13 9380 that nerds care about: performance.

Dell XPS 13 (2019)

 

The Dell XPS 13 serves up a new color, a powerful Intel Whiskey Lake processor, a 4K display (and ditches the ridiculous "nosecam") - all in a slim, lightweight chassis.

Dell XPS 13 (2016)

 

The Dell XPS 13 improves upon our top-rated laptop by offering even longer battery life, faster performance and stronger Wi-Fi in an equally compact design.

Superb battery life; Good 7th-generation Core performance; Excellent Wi-Fi range; More ports than on competing laptops; Comfortable, soft-touch, carbon-fiber deck; Attractive rose-gold color option

Awkward webcam placement; Not as thin and light as some competitors

Dell XPS 13 review

 

Making the best laptop in the world even better

Centered IR webcam ; Gorgeous new design ; Beautiful optional 4K display ; Impressive performance

Steeper starting price ; White option is pricier ; Still gotta’ move that webcam

Moving the webcam position, adding facial login and a four-mic array, giving Intel’s chips more headroom to perform even better and adding a 4K screen have all evolved the XPS into an even more formidable flagship laptop. In directly addressing the...

Dell XPS 13 (2017) review

 

Una vez mas, la mejor computadora portátil hasta ahora.

Increíble funcionamiento ; Fantástica vida de la batería ; Grandioso precio ; Muchas opciones

La cámara web es aun un problema ; Pobre posición de las bocinas.

La constante unión de estilo, funcionamiento y precio, nos permite omitir algunos defectos en el diseño, para así otorgarle al el laptop Dell XPS 13 nuestro premio Mejor en su clase una vez mas.

Dell XPS 13 Review: This Time It's Practically Perfect

 

The Dell XPS 13 has been so dangerously close to perfect for so long that the latest iteration left me a little surprised. I was turning it this way and that to find something I could fault it for, not because I wanted to unfairly ding the product,...

Just about everything.

Dell XPS 13 [análisis]: la computadora portátil empieza 2015 con paso firme

 

Tomando como ejemplo a los fabricantes de TVs, el bisel es reducido a su máximo, mientras que el rendimiento consigue una pequeña mejora con el procesador Intel Broadwell.

La renovada ; tiene una pantalla casi sin bordes y un cuerpo muy pequeño para ser una portátil de 13 pulgadas. Además tiene los nuevos procesadores de Intel.

Las actualizaciones de la configuración pueden resultar costosas; la pantalla táctil no está incluida en el modelo base; las mejoras del procesador son mínimas.

La nueva Dell XPS 13 es la primera portátil genial de 2015, pero obtiene ese título más por sus nuevo diseño que por sus nuevos procesadores.
