80% Dell XPS 13 (2019) review: It's hard to better the best
Source: PC World English
The new Dell XPS 13 is still one of the best 13-inch work laptops you can buy - but I struggle to find many reasons to not opt for its depreciated predecessor or waiting for an inevitable 9th-gen follow up over it.

80% Dell XPS 13 (2019) Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Dell XPS 13 was already a great laptop and Dell has made some welcome improvements to remain our favorite ultraportable overall. The addition of Intel Whiskey Lake cements the XPS 13's status as a mobile powerhouse. And when you're not crunching the numbers, that vivacious 4K display is perfect for watching video. We especially like the itty-bitty webcam, killing the nosecam forever.

90% Dell XPS 13 (2019) review: The webcam is finally on top
Source: Neowin English
The Dell XPS 13 is a great all-around clamshell laptop, with a beautiful design and a small footprint. My biggest complaints are that there's no IR camera - particularly that Dell gave us facial recognition and then took it away - and there's no USB Type-A. Most consumer laptops still keep at least one USB Type-A port, and this one does not.

85% Dell XPS 13 (2019) review: the right stuff, refined

The Dell XPS 13 is designed for actual user needs, thoughtfully addressing the practical things you worry about when using a laptop. It seems a little weird to gush about the placement of the webcam or the power brick or even glare on a screen, but those are real hassles and it feels nice to have a laptop quietly solve them.

It's nearly impossible to find anything to dislike about this 13-inch slim powerhouse, at least in the pricey high-end configuration tested here.

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.

80% Dell XPS 13 9380 review: The best little laptop fixes its biggest problem
Source: PC World English
Our first test is Maxon’s Cinebench R15. It’s a free benchmark based on Maxon’s older Cinema4D rendering engine. The test is multi-threaded and probably isn’t what most XPS 13 9380 users will run, but it’s still a fair representation of what you’re likely to see from the laptop and CPU in shorter multi-threaded workloads. Those occasional multi-threaded tasks in Excel or that rare multi-threaded Adobe Photoshop filter would likely see similar performance bumps.

Most will dismiss the Dell XPS 13 9380 as a “meh” update. We’d tend to agree, as the CPU update offers a fairly small (albeit real) performance bump. The problem with that narrative is it ignores the position of the strength the XPS 13 comes from. The previous model reigned as most everyone’s top ultrathin laptop, including our own—until you got to the webcam placement. By taking that criticism away, the already-great Dell XPS 13 9380 is a better laptop.

Dell XPS 13 (9380) 2019 Review: So Close To Perfection
Source: Hot Hardware English
The new Dell XPS 13 (9380) is fast, quiet, and beautiful. It also commands a premium, as configured for our review of course. It retails for $2,449.99 when choosing the same hardware options as our review model, putting it out of reach for value-conscious buyers. However, you can knock that price down closer to $2,000 by slashing the storage in half (to 512GB) and going with Windows 10 Home instead of Pro. Pricing for the series starts at $899.99 for an FHD config (non-touch with 8th Gen Core i3 and less storage and RAM), so you can still bring a new model home on a tighter budget as well, just obviously with less bells and whistles.

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 ultraportable laptop you can buy.

The biggest change to the Dell XPS 13 for 2019 is the one we’ve been waiting for: a webcam where it belongs. With everything else kept on the level, we expect this to be a good year for Dell’s most important laptop.

If you've already got your hands on the 2018 version, the new features might not be enough to make you rush to upgrade, but it's certainly worth the investment if you're new to the XPS 13 world, or you're packing an older version.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620. Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
1.226 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.
84.25%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
