The ultimate ultraportable

Premium construction, excellent portability, ultra-fast performance—the Dell XPS 13 Signature Edition laptop is as powerful and feature-packed as they get. Whether you're creating your latest digital masterpiece, putting the final touches on your weekly sales report, or dashing from class to class on campus, no task is too big for this stylish overachiever. And since it's a Microsoft Signature Edition PC, you always get a computing experience that's clean, fast, and protected.

As clear as life

As clear as life

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.

Solid as a rock

Solid as a rock

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.


"This ultraportable delivers solid performance for work and play."

Ratings and reviews

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat laptopI bought this laptop almost a year ago, and I've loved it ever since. There is a very very faint whine that comes from the back-lit keyboard in an absolutely silent room, but whenever there is any other noise, it can't be heard. The processor handles everything from word processing to CAD flawlessly, and only after extended use does it start to get warm on the bottom, though it never gets uncomfortably hot. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars, is the lac of a laptop lock port (though I heard they fixed this issue in the newest model).

Rated 1 out of5 by fromMakes annoying noiseSearch for "Dell XPS noise" and you'll find dozens of people complaining of a strange electronic hiss from the area under the top-right corner of the laptop. Very annoying, no fix available other than to return it or have a tech replace motherboard. Would not buy again because of that. Otherwise nice hardware.Windows 8.1 is also pretty much worse in every way than Windows 7, but this only ships with 8. If you buy this, search for and install "Classic shell" to make the computer usable without dealing with the metro ui / start screen mess.

Rated 1 out of5 by frompoor touch screen, graphics card, hard driveI had trouble with the touch screen sensitivity. There is no adjustment for sensitivity. The background color changed randomly from white to bluish to yellowish. I found this annoying. Might be the graphics card or the power settings. the battery life was random,too. sometimes it read 9 hours but then 1 hour later it read 2 hours. the hard drive failed after 2 months and it would not boot up. Dell support was poor, got hung-up on multiple times. Got transferred multiple times. Took it back store for a exchange, but it think I will just return it. Glad I bought at Microsoft store since i got an exchange after 2 months without any hassle. Dell policy is only 21 days. I don't want to start over after spending hours on the first one.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromExcellent form factor but poor touch screen.I bought this a month ago and returned it next day because the screen is very insensitive to touch. This means there are many miss 'clicks' (touches) and repeated attempts are needed to touch on screen items. I would estimate about 5-10% of touches are missed, that doesn't sound much but becomes really frustrating after a while.The seconds laptop suffered from the same issues, I did keep this laptop for about a week hoping that with updates, screen calibration etc things would get better.Additionally the screen is constantly changing brightness even with the auto-brightness feature turned off. This appears to be an intel graphic thing where it still adjusts the brightness based on the amount of white on the screen. A largly white screen would shift to a blue-ish white, as if the colour temp range was dynamically changing. I couldn't see how to turn it off and it is very annoying.Pros- Great form factor, light and thin. The materials are very good quality.- Nice keyboard and touch pad.- Lovely HD display and crisp screen.- No crapware, thank you Microsoft.Cons- Touch- Auto brightness/colour temp.Microsoft Store was really helpful and made the exchanges very smooth. I highly recommend buying through them.In the end I got a Lenovo Yoga 2, which is a bit chunkier but much better touch.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromMostly great, some flawsI got this for xmas and for the most part have found it to be a good lightweight machine albeit flawed.Pros:keyboard, battery life is fairly good, fast, low weight, looksCons:Major backlight bleed. I mean terrible bleed. For something higher end like this, I am very disappointed.Coil whine. I read that people had this problem and figured I could deal with it. It can be pretty annoying though.I would strongly consider other options after having used this.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromfew ideasyou can say it's ok for the money but it is not. if you don't have a GPU on your machine, then you simply pay that amount of money for a couple of pounds of cheap plastic. dell machines use to be tough and durable but nowadays things have changed a lot. I will go with a product that have his parts user accessible and changeable rather than this

Rated 5 out of5 by fromBetter than I would have imaginedI purchased my XPS 13 this afternoon and am extremely happy with it so far. We have lots of equipment including several PCs and Macs, as well as a several tablets, and I am a web developer professionally. The screen on the XPS 13 is quite good and I'm enjoying the overall size of the machine a lot.So far it was very easy to get it up and running using my existing Microsoft account. I am impressed with how easy it is to keep my files in sync with OneDrive and Office 365.The price was great for an i5 with 8GB/128GB SSD and the build quality feels rock solid. There's no trace of the hum/whine some people have reported and I feel that the machine is a great value.
