Every little detail comes to life on the XPS 13's Full HD screen. Its 1920 x 1080 resolution delivers twice as many pixels as standard HD (720p) for beautiful clarity no matter what you're looking at. And with the 10-point touchscreen, you can effortlessly tap, swipe, scroll, zoom, or pinch your way through your digital world, unlike a MacBook Air.
Premium craftsmanship and design touches make this laptop a real head-turner. Its all-aluminum body is strong, durable, and stylish front to back, while its carbon-fiber base is tough and thin like aluminum but cooler to the touch. And with a screen built with Corning Gorilla Glass NBT, you get enhanced scratch resistance, reduced scratch visibility, and better retained strength once a scratch occurs. All of which makes for a laptop that's stronger and more reliable than a MacBook Air.
