In our Dell XPS 13 review, we praised its premium design and slim, compact design. We awarded it an Editor's Choice award for its bright, vivid display and outstanding performance. 

With its anodized-aluminum lid and underside to its plush carbon-fiber deck, the Dell XPS 13 is a finely-crafted machine. In real-world testing, we were impressed by its bright, richly saturated panel. 

At 11.9 x 7.8 x 0.5 inches and 2.7 pounds, the Dell XPS 13 is more compact and lighter than its sibling, the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (11.7 x 8.2 x 0.5 inches, 2.9 pounds), the 13-inch MacBook Pro (12 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches, 3 pounds) and the HP Spectre x360 (12.2 x 8.6 x 0.6 inches, 2.8 pounds). 

In one test, the laptop's 10th Gen Intel Comet Lake processor took just about everything we threw out it without so much as a hiccup. 

The Dell XPS 13 is equipped with the ports you need to connect must-have peripherals. Dell managed to pack three USB-C ports, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a microSD slot and a headphone jack into the XPS 13's ultraslim chassis. 

If ultra-portability and performance are a priority to you, the Dell XPS 13 is a smart buy.
