Every version of the XPS 13 has been impressive but the latest, which can be specced up to include a 4K display, is definitely one of the best. While the high-end add-ons are expensive, the base models are easily powerful enough for most people, especially if your main work involves writing and researching online.
The 13.4-inch display is definitely big enough for most people and stops just short of making the laptop too big. A lot of 14-inch-plus displays can make transporting the laptop, or using it in awkward positions, a bit much. Intel's 10th-generation processors are on offer, too, packing a huge punch, and there's up to 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD available.
Let's jump into the best US and UK deals for the Dell XPS 13.
