If you’re looking for an attractive touchscreen laptop, the new Dell XPS 13 Touch is a solid choice. The notebook in this deal sports a 13.3- inch 1080p touch display and runs on a 2.8-GHz Intel Core i7-1165G7 4-core CPU and 16GB of RAM. It also features Iris Xe graphics, and a speedy 512GB SSD.
Although we didn’t test this exact model, in our Dell XPS 13 review, we loved its attractive, premium chassis and springy, comfortable keyboard. We were also impressed by its solid and reliable performance and gave it a 4.5 out of 5-star rating and the Editor’s Choice award.
The Dell XPS 13 review unit we tested housed the same 11th Gen Intel Core i7 chip coupled with 16GB of RAM. No matter what we threw its way during real-world testing, its performance never slowed down.
The Dell XPS 13 supplies you with two Thunderbolt 4 ports, and a USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 2 port — both with Power Delivery/DisplayPort. You also get a headphone/mic combo jack, microSD card slot, and a wedge-shaped lock slot.
At a weight of 2.7 pounds and 0.6-inches thick, the Dell XPS 13 Touch is an ultraportable 13-inch laptop. It’s on a par with the MacBook Air M1 (2.8 pounds, 11.9 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches) and 13.5-inch Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (12.1 x 8.8 x 0.6 inches, 2.9 pounds).
Overall, the Dell XPS 13 Touch is a wise choice if you’re looking for a capable everyday laptop.
