Just days before CES, the largest consumer technology showcase in the world, Dell has launched an all-new XPS 13 laptop, featuring a new color, 8th Gen Intel processor, a thinner/lighter body, and more.

Here are some main highlights of the all-new Dell XPS 13 laptop:

  • 8th Gen Intel processor, up to 4.0GHz
  • Up to 16GB RAM
  • Available 13.3-inch UltraSharp 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) InfinityEdge touch display
  • Up to 1 TB PCIe SSD
  • New alpine white woven glass fiber palm rest (UV-resistant and stain resistant coating)
  • 52 WHr built-in battery
  • Starting weight 2.67 lbs for non-touch display
  • Available with Ubuntu 16.04 (Linux) operating system pre-loaded

The XPS 13 has always been known for its premium materials and construction, and the engineers at Dell spent almost 12,000 hours to ensure this new version is even more durable and exotic.

In an industry first, the all-new XPS 13 uses nine composite layers of white crystalline silica to achieve the alpine white glass fiber weave pattern on the palm rest, surpassing the limits of traditional carbon fiber. It's also coated with titanium oxide to give it a sheen and make it UV and stain-resistant.

Also never before seen on a laptop is the use of GORE Thermal Insulation — the same technology found on the Mars Rovers — which helps direct heat out of the laptop to sustain long periods of high performance.

If you thought the previous XPS 13 was small, think again — Dell's engineers managed to shrink the XPS 13's overall form-factor even further, measuring 3.4mm thinner and weighing less than the outgoing model. This makes it the smallest 13-inch laptop ever produced.

And for those who really like to tinker, Dell is offering an Ubuntu-based developer edition XPS 13 with Linux preloaded.

The all-new XPS 13 laptop is available today at Dell.com with a starting price of $999.99, and we're excited to experience it in person at CES 2018. Keep an eye on our blog for initial hands-on impressions!

Ubuntu is just an option, not a requirement.

My only objection to the Dell XPS series is the location of the webcam... They shoot you from the bottom of the screen, and that's not the best place for the webcam.

Awesome...glad to see they were able to make it lighter. I just picked up the 7th Gen i7 version that was a FP deal a few months ago. This one is now my second XPS13 and I absolutely LOVE the XPS13. Best laptop I've owned and I'm a former Thinkpad guy. I'll upgrade to this newer, lighter version in a couple years...maybe when the 9th gen i7 hits the market

Impressive tech. specs.
Relatively reasonable pricing.
Build quality and reliability? Hit and miss historically.
I'd only get another Dell from a retailer that offers fast & free return shipping.
i.e.: not from Newegg.com or just any eBay sellers.
