This Ultrabook has a compact design that is the first to catch the eye of anyone who sees it.

Furthermore, the keyboard is backlit which also reveals the keys which are comfortable to use because of their positioning.
An outstanding feature that is part of the overall appearance of the Dell XPS 13 is the engineering of the 13 inch screen that has no apparent edge thus making it look like it is sitting on the base of the Ultrabook. The Dell XPS 13 screen is made from tough Gorilla glass and also has a resolution that enables the user to watch movies that are of high definition.
Performance wise the Dell XPS 13 is as impressive as its outward appearance because of the various features that it has in terms of sustaining its working process.

Some of the processes that are made easier through the use of the processor include the multitasking between web pages as well as programs while they respond at a fast rate.
Lastly, the battery life of the Dell XPS 13 is one of the features that are always considered because of its portability nature.
