Dell unveils the newly redesigned XPS 13laptops ...

Dell''s popular XPS 13 ultrabook collection has been redesigned, with the 13.4-inch display options of its predecessor, which include a resolution of 3840 x 2400 (touch-enabled) or a 1920 x 1200 (with or without a touchscreen).

The Intel 12th-gen Alder Lake-U processors come with options for an i5-1230U or i7-1250U, as well as 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Moreover, storage capacity increases to a 1 TB NVMe SSD. What''s more notable is how the new internals are packaged inside.

Dell has altered the motherboard to be smaller than the previous, allowing for larger speakers and other upgrades. The downside is that the laptop will not be very upgradeable, as users will not be able to replace the RAM, SSD, or battery.

The XPS 13 is backed by a CNC aluminum chassis, which allows you to choose between the Sky (a light blue) and Umber (a muted purple). Dell removed the headphone jack and the microSD card reader, thus you''re limited to two Thunderbolt 4.

The Dell XPS 13 (9315) is available today in the United States and Canada, with prices starting at $999.

The new XPS 13 2-in-1, which no longer features a 360-degree hinge, has been announced. Instead, it comes in a tablet form factor, with the option to purchase an XPS Folio keyboard case and magnetic stylus separately, similar to the iPad and Microsoft''s Surface Pro lineup.

The 13-inch 2880 x 1920 screen has a 3:2 aspect ratio, optional 5G connectivity with eSIM support, and an 11-megapixel rear camera. Sky and a darker Slate hue are among the options.

Dell''s new XPS 13 2-in-1 will be released this summer, with pricing still unknown for the time being.
