The XPS 13, perfected in the spirit of always improving our XPS products, continued to refine our most popular laptop. Our smallest webcam ever: Our engineering teams worked for over two years to bring the miniscule 2.25mm camera to market on our most popular XPS laptop. While the micro HD webcam is small enough to be top-mounted in the InfinityEdge display, it also uses the latest and greatest image processing technologies to ensure you’ll see smooth, crisp, and clear video in any situation. New frost exterior and improved arctic white palm rest: A new frost exterior brings more colour choice to the XPS 13, while the arctic white woven glass fiber palm rest is a brighter, whiter white. Latest 8th gen Intel® Core™ Processors: Latest and greatest Intel quad core processors deliver outstanding performance.
The smallest camera ever
The engineering teams invested in advanced manufacturing technologies to produce an ultra-tiny camera, our smallest ever at 2.25mm, that could be integrated into the top bezel of the XPS 13 without compromise. This enabled us to deliver both a beautiful InfinityEdge design, and the most innovative HD laptop camera to provide a great customer experience while collaborating, streaming, and creating.
Dell is the leading PC maker when it comes to miniaturizing its integrated webcams for systems that employ narrow bezel or InfinityEdge displays. A leader in thin bezel designs, Dell recognized several years ago that it would have to push webcam technology to its limits to shrink the size of our cameras and enable the best placement (at the top centre of the display), while still allowing the display bezels to shrink dramatically. Dell invested heavily in its manufacturing process for these cameras to produce modules less than half the size of prior generations, while simultaneously increasing their quality.
This lens uses more elements than typical webcams to deliver sharp video in all areas of the frame. Inferior 3-element designs suffer from blurred details in the corners, as well as colour artefacts.
The lens is assembled with extremely precise machinery to ensure that all points of the image are in precise focus. This is a technology typically only applied to high-end smartphones. It also helps enable the extremely small size of the camera needed to ensure both an InfinityEdge display and an optimal positioning of the camera.
Advanced temporal noise reduction
Dell was the first PC maker to adopt an advanced type of noise reduction called temporal noise reduction, which results in significantly better video quality, especially in dim lighting conditions. In this technique, the controller on board the camera module performs substantially improved reduction of noise and grain by analysing information from multiple frames of video simultaneously. This ensures clear and high quality video even if the user is poorly lit.
More might, even more slight
The small 13-inch laptop
The XPS 13 is still smaller, thinner, lighter than the original XPS 13, starting at just 2.6 pounds* and squeezing a 13.3-inch laptop in an 11-inch footprint. So perfectly sized for airplane tray tables, you won’t even notice when the passenger in front of you reclines their seat.
A powerful 13-inch laptop: The refreshed XPS 13 features the newest 8th Gen Intel® processors, offering increased performance with 4 cores, all in a slim form. More cores mean increased performance when you multitask.
Dell Power Manager
It is a Dell-developed application that incorporates a wide variety of features from different frameworks to manage system behaviours such as acoustics (fan speeds), battery life, power, and performance. It allows user to customize based on their preferences between quiet, ultra-performance, cool, and optimized modes.
The user-selectable modes provided by Dell Power Manager allow you to dynamically change the power of the system. This solution, engineered by Dell, dynamically delivers the maximum amount of power from your processor, while intelligently monitoring and managing system temperatures. We only deliver the extra power when applications need it, conserving battery life.
