If you've been twiddling your thumbs waiting for Dell to offer a 32 GB version of its latest XPS 13, then now's the time to jump in. Expect to put down $1800 or more if you're one of the few Ultrabook users who need more than the usual 16 GB.
Allen Ngo,

The Dell XPS 13 9300 launched a few months ago to replace the XPS 13 7390. Unlike its bigger brother, however, the XPS 13 has no user-expandable RAM and so owners are stuck with what the OEM ships with. Options would range from 8 GB to 16 GB with no 32 GB in sight for memory-heavy workloads.

Now, Dell is finally ready to ship the promised 32 GB LPDDR4x SKUs as these are now available on Dell.com. The current configuration will set you back at least $1800 to be twice the price of the lower-end 8 GB version. Users must configure with the Core i7-1065G7 instead of the Core i3 or Core i5, but all display options are available up to the unique 16:10 3830 x 2400 UHD+ touchscreen.

Storage is thankfully replaceable unlike on the XPS 13 7390 2-in-1. If desired, users can configure the XPS 13 9300 with the lowest 256 GB SSD option and simply replace the SSD themselves to save a few dollars. Dell charges an additional $300 USD for the 2 TB option while a quick search for 2 TB PCIe drives shows an average of about $250 USD.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
