In our Dell XPS 13 review, we loved its attractive, premium chassis and powerful performance. We were also impressed by its bezel-less display and gave it a 5 out of 5-star rating and our hard to get Editor's Choice award. The Dell XPS 13 review unit we tested had a Core i7-1065G7 CPU/8GB RAM configuration.
