Although we didn't test this exact configuration, in our Dell XPS 13 (2020) review, we loved its attractive, premium, bezel-less design. As we note in our recent Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 review (opens in new tab) which has the same chip as the XPS 13 on sale, we were floored by its fast performance.
Like its predecessors, the XPS 13 features an embedded fingerprint reader in the power button for easy login using Windows Hello. For ports, the XPS 13 is equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microSD slot.
At 11.6 x 7.8 x 0.58-inches, the 2.7-pounds, the 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).
Port-wise, the XPS 13 gives you the basics. You get two Thunderbolt 4 ports and a headphone/microphone combo jack. If you want more ports, we recommend a USB hub.
