DELLS PERFECT EXAMPLE FOR ULTRABOOK:XPS 13(9300)
The 2020 version of Dell’s venerable XPS 13 ultraportable laptop has a slightly larger display in a redesigned chassis that’s minutely more compact than its predecessors. It also boasts a significantly more futuristic design. The Dell XPS 13 (9300) is the updated 2020 version of the Dell XPS 13 (7390) which launched in 2019. It essentially builds on the same lines as its predecessor and refines them in terms of design and better internals. The stunning 4-sided Infinity Edge display enables us to bring a 6.8% larger 16:10 display to the 33.02cm (13 inch), all in a 2% smaller size when compare with previous generation, delivering a 91.5% screen to body ratio.

Dell's first entry into the ultrabook market is a patient and smart one. They've arrived at the party a bit later than the competition, but they're fashionably late: instead of a design that just apes the Apple MacBook Air, Dell has taken care to produce something unique to them with the XPS 13.
When you look at the whole package, the XPS 13 is a premium laptop that offers good performance and stunning display. The build quality is basically the best there is and the design is beautiful. For those who want a highly portable laptop for work, the XPS 13 is a great option. Among the different configurations, I would recommend getting the Intel Core-i5 option along with the 1080p screen. It would save a lot of battery life while still offering solid performance. The 4K display option is an overkill for a 13-inch form factor laptop and will only make sense for photo-editing and video editing.For this premium experience, you are certainly paying a higher price.
