10th gen Intel CPUs, thinner chassis, and larger screen and keyboard

Dell has updated its popular XPS 13 12-in-1 convertible laptop with Intel's latest 10th gen Core CPUs as well as slightly redesigned it to squeeze in a larger keyboard and screen, all while making it thinner.

Thanks to Intel's latest 10th gen Core CPUs, which feature a smaller motherboard, Dell's 2019 XPS 13 7300-series 2-in-1 convertible laptop is eight percent thinner (hitting 7-13mm), while also comes with a a seven percent larger screen and larger keyboard. Speaking of the chassis, it comes packed in a silver or black CNC-machined aluminum body with fiber-composite palm rest. The entire setup is 1.32kg heavy - or light - which makes it a leader in its class.

Dell was also keen to note it has updated the cooling system with new "advanced thermal design", which features new venting, vapor air chamber, GORE Thermal Insulation, and dual fans to cool higher powered processors

As noted, Dell also managed to squeeze in a larger keyboard, as well as a larger screen, which is now a 13.4-inch class one, coming in FHD or UHD resolutions, depending on the SKU. The screen has a maximum 500nits of brightness, up to 1800:1 contrast ratio, Dolby Vision on FHD and 90% DCI-P3 color gamut on the UHD one.

When it comes to hardware, there are several Intel 10th gen CPUs to pick, ranging from Core i3-1005 to Core i7-1065, up to 32GB of LPDDR4x-3733 RAM, up to 1TB of PCIe SSD storage. As far as connectivity goes, you get two Thunderbolt 3 ports, Killer AX1650 (2x2) WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, microSD card reader and more. It also has a 51WHr battery that should keep it running for around 16 hours, depending on the usage.

Dell's XPS 13 2-in-1 was quite popular and we are sure that an updated one will do even better when it starts selling later this year, starting at $999.99.
