Since Dell presented the slim bezel XPS 13 back in 2015, customers and users alike have actually had one repeating grievance: the web cam is listed below the screen. As great as having thin bezels is, this suggested you ‘d get an uncomplimentary view of your face at finest and clear shot up your nose at worst.

That’s lastly a distant memory.

Dell today revealed its revamped XPS 13 (9380), and at long last, the electronic camera has actually moved above the screen. The leading bezel is a little bit thicker since of it– Dell didn’t choose a notch like Asus– however we question anybody will grumble. As a reward, the formerly ginormous chin under the screen is smaller sized too, causing a general more svelte bundle.

There’s one caution to the modification: the laptop computer no longer supports Windows Hey there for fast logins with your face. Rather, you’ll need to depend on the finger print reader. A deserving compromise, if you ask me.

Otherwise, it’s a spec bump as you ‘d anticipate. It’s utilizing Intel’s 8th Gen Bourbon Lake processors, which will just supply a moderate efficiency increase, however Dell states enhanced thermals ought to assist run the laptop computer quicker for longer. The business is guaranteeing as much as 21 hours of battery life too. That appears impractical, however if it accomplishes even half of that it ‘d be a strong efficiency.

It likewise now includes an all-white ‘frost’ appearance. The laptop computer was formerly readily available with a white interior and increased gold outside, however the brand-new frost goes all-white. Finally dell’s enhanced the hinge to make it much easier to open with one hand– a little however welcome touch.

The brand-new XPS 13 will be readily available today beginning at $900
