    CES 2020: New Dell smaller thinner XPS 13 and Alienware gaming monitor


    Last Updated: 02 Jan 2020 at 16:27

    At CES, Dell introduced a new XPS aimed at helping you innovate, collaborate and accomplish more in the next decade, as well as the new Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor.


    Dell XPS 13 9300 (Model 9300)

    With the new XPS 13, Dell showed off a smaller and thinner form factor for users who want maximum screen space, by reducing its InfinityEdge borders. With a 6.8% larger 16:10 display that spans from all four edges, the new 25% brighter XPS InfinityEdge display delivers more screen space to multitask throughout the day and catch all the details of the latest binge-worthy show. And holding true to what XPS fans love most, this new design delivers a 13.4-inch display in an 11-inch form factor— fitting neatly on an airplane tray.

    The Project Athena-certified XPS 13 offers 10th Generation Intel Core 10nm mobile processors and long battery life. Simpler and more sustainable packaging eliminates foam, making it easier for users to recycle. Available options include the traditional XPS 13 with Windows 10 or the Developer Edition featuring Ubuntu 18.04LTS.

    The XPS 13, starting at $999.99, will be available in the U.S., Canada, Sweden, U.K., Germany and France Jan. 7 and globally Feb. 4.



    Built for speed with a 99% sRGB color coverage, the new Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor features fast IPS technology that offers rich colors, a 240Hz refresh rate and a 1 millisecond response time, all in native FHD resolution. It also has AMD Radeon FreeSync and is G-Sync compatible.

    It’ll be available globally March 11, starting at $499.99.

    I'm doing field testing of the new XPS 13 9300 for Dell. It is thin and reminds me of something to compete with Apple.
    As mentioned in another post its a "fast devil" and has an impressive display. I just did a reset on it as it will be sent back to Dell and I don't remember all the spec's. But it has an Intel
    i5-1035G1 CPU. 1 TB SSD and 16GB RAM. Thunderbolt only ports. Battery power lasts a long time although I didn't try to use it until it "died".

    I wonder about XPS Desktops.

    Hi there
    I wonder about the i5 CPU though -- surely this type of machine should have an i7 at least and of course to be useful also as a "Home desktop" the idea of no USB ports is IMO a retrograde step. How many people buy a laptop costing around 1000 USD just for gaming. Maybe a few but I'm not so sure -- I'd love one of these to replace aging HP laptop but the no USB port thing for me is a showstopper.

    Nice Machine but IMO needs a USB connection at least (so one can add a hub).

    I have a Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 adapter so I was able to connect my USB mouse to it during testing.
    The engineering test model has the i5, there may be options and an i7 available.

    Apple uses i3's in many of their high priced laptops and tells you how great it is. I remember either QVC or HSN selling an Apple 13" laptop similar to this Dell XPS over the holidays and touting its multi-tasking and how fast it was and it only had a 128GB SSD and 8GB RAM.

    Hi there

    The Thunderbolt USB 3 / 3/1 adaptor sounds a good idea -- didn't know there was "any such animal"

    Will wait and see.

    As a frequent traveller I do like the smaller footprint of a laptop and provided it's decently rugged with regard to the screen (almost no edge which gives it the larger display) -- this could be a good thing to start the new year off.

    Mind you those thunderbolt adapters are quite hideously expensive for a small bit of hardware -- since it's based on an Apple design -- well what would it be OTHER THAN expensive --that's a surprise isn't it. !!!!!!

    Will look further.

    Cheers
