Dell has released the latest models of its XPS 13 and XPS 13 2-in-1, outfitted with the fast 12th-gen Intel processors in thinner and lighter aluminium chassis, making it even easier to work on the go for business professionals and content creators.
The XPS series is Dell’s flagship laptop line and they are defined by top-notch performance in a sleek design, and the new XPS 13 lineups stay true to form.
XPS 13 (2022 model)
The 2022 Dell XPS 13 is fitted with the 12th-gen Intel Core processor up to Core i7, and can go up to 32GB of LPDDR5 onboard memory and 1TB of PCIe SSD storage. It has the Intel Iris Xe graphics and a choice of 13.4-inch displays: the 1920 x 1200 FHD (with touch and non-touch options) and the swankier 3820 x 2400 4K UHD+ version. They all sport the InfinityEdge design that gives you the thinnest bezels and best visuals, and clarity at 500 nits in brightness.
It is also ultraportable, starting at just 1.17kg and measures just 14mm in thickness. But you still get up to 12 hours of use from this sleek laptop. It has two Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) ports with DisplayPort and power delivery, with a USB-C to USB-A adapter included (with an option for USB-C to 3.5mm headset available).
The new Dell XPS 13 is available now starting from S$1,449, with Windows 11 pre-installed and in the subtle blue Sky colour.
XPS 13 2-in-1 (2022 model)
The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is a convertible laptop-tablet that is designed for versatility. With the tablet form weighing just below 800g, with the optional XPS Folio keyboard plus stand at 560g, it is one of the most travel-friendly convertible laptops around.
Like its sibling, the XPS 13 2-in-1 packs the fast 12th-gen Intel Core processor up to Core i7. You can get up to 16GB of LPDDR4x onboard memory and 1TB of PCIe SSD storage. The graphics is Intel Iris Xe and the 13.4-inch touch display goes up to 2880 x 1920 resolution at 500 nits in brightness.
The tablet converts into a traditional clamshell laptop with the XPS Folio (sold separately) which comes with a stable magnetic stand and a zero-lattice keyboard with Precision touchpad. The XPS Stylus (also sold separately) makes sketching and writing easy with up to 50 days of use time from a full charge.
It also has two Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) ports with DisplayPort and power delivery, as well as a USB-C to USB-A adapter included (with an option for USB-C to 3.5mm headset available). There are two cameras: a 1080P HD front camera and an 11-megapixel 4K rear camera.
This 2-in-1 is also the first XPS model with an optional 5G built-in. That means even when you do not have WiFi, you can still stay connected on the 5G mobile network as long as you have a data plan. The eSim tech also allows for connectivity as you travel to different countries without having to switch SIM cards. The 5G-equipped model has Gorilla Glass 7 back.
The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 will be available starting from 19 July 2022, with Windows 11 pre-installed and in the subtle blue Sky colour for the basic model or in a darker Slate for the version with 5G.
