The XPS 13 on sale packs a 13.3-inch touchscreen, a 1.6-GHz 10th Gen Intel Core i5-10210U quad-core CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD.

As we note in our Dell XPS 13 2019 review, we loved the laptop's slim design and its ability to perform well under pressure. We were also fans of the XPS 13's InfinityEdge display, which is Dell's way of saying it has ultra-thin bezels. 

The barely-there bezels give you more screen for distraction-free viewing whether you're steaming a video or working on documents. 

At 11.6 x 7.8 x 0.3~0.5-inches, the 2.7-pound XPS 13 is thinner and lighter than the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (2.9 pounds, 12.1 x 8.8 x 0.6 inches) and MacBook Pro (13-inch 2019 with Touch Bar) (4.4 pounds, 12.8 x 8.9 x 1 inches). 

In terms of security features, the XPS 13 has an embedded fingerprint reader in the power button for easy login using Windows Hello.

Connectivity-wise, the XPS 13 includes two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microSD slot. 

Now just $699, this Dell XPS 13 deal is only while supplies last.
