In our Dell XPS 13 review, we praise its attractive, premium design and great performance. It also won us over with its springy, comfortable keyboard. We gave the Dell XPS 13 a 4.5 out of 5-star rating and the Editor's Choice award. 

During multitasking tests, it handled everything we threw at it and never once flinched. In our lab, it beat the premium laptop with a score of 5,254 on Geekbench 5.0, our overall performance test.

By design, the Dell XPS 13 sports a premium anodized aluminum chassis with Dell's signature shiny silver Dell logo on the lid.
