Dell XPS 13 9370
Dell’s XPS workstation arrangement has dependably been about premium form quality and execution. The ultra-convenient XPS 13 (Review) has for quite some time been outstanding amongst other premium Ultrabooks you can get for your cash. Notwithstanding, the organization hasn’t generally been instant in propelling each new revive in India. Take for instance the 2017 Dell XPS 15, which appeared at CES in January that year however just made it to our shores last October – and how about we do not overlook the XPS 13 2-in-1, which didn’t touch base by any stretch of the imagination.
This year, Dell is by all accounts more proactive with its India go-to-showcase technique, and scarcely a month after the organization declared the 2018 release of the XPS 13, it’s as of now accessible here for procurement. Today, we’ll be trying the best end variation of the new XPS 13 9370 arrangement, which gloats of a slimmer body, 4K UHD InfinityEdge touchscreen, and overhauled specs. We should perceive what it resembles.
Dell XPS 13 9370 specifications and features
At the time of writing this review, this particular variant isn’t available on Dell’s online store but we’re told that it will be added soon. The specifications include an Intel Core i7-8550U CPU, 16GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 512GB NVMe SSD. There’s no dedicated graphics processor here so you’ll have to make do with the onboard UHD Graphics 620 from Intel. The individual RAM modules aren’t identified by diagnostic software, which shows that they are soldered onto the motherboard and are therefore not upgradeable. Other specifications include dual-band Wi-Fi ac with 2×2 MIMO antennas and Bluetooth by Killer Networks; an HD webcam; and a non-removable 52WHr battery.
Dell XPS 13 design and build quality
The new laptop is deceptively small, and even the box it ships in feels like it’s too small for a laptop to fit inside. Taking a closer look at its actual dimensions, the new XPS 13 9370 is only marginally reduced in width and depth compared to the previous-gen XPS 13 9360, but Dell has shaved the thickness quite a bit, so it measures 11.6mm at its thickest point and just 7.8mm at the thinnest. We also found it to be very light, and it won’t weigh your bag or backpack down when traveling.
Despite the size and weight, this laptop doesn’t skimp on premium materials. The chassis is built from machined aluminum and has a soft matte texture so it’s relatively easy to keep clean even if you don’t use a sleeve. We have the white and rose gold version, which according to Dell, is the only color trim this particular spec will be available in for now. We’re used to seeing XPS laptops in silver with a carbon fiber finish, but for this new color combination, Dell has used a special woven glass fiber material on the palm rest area instead. It feels quite similar to the carbon fiber finish, and according to the company, it also has a stain-resistant UV coating to prevent it from yellowing over time.
The XPS 13 9370 is a decent iterative refresh of Dell’s leader ultraportable, with the best end variation donning an eye-getting 4K show with HDR bolster. In any case, this comes at a high cost of Rs. 1,59,790, which is about Rs. 10,000 more than Lenovo’s Yoga 920 Vibes Edition which has a similar particular and 4K show, however short HDR.
Dell says that it will keep offering the current XPS 13 9360 territory, and most variations were refreshed with eighth Gen Intel Core CPUs before the end of last year, so you have many designs to look over. With the new XPS 13 9370 arrangement, you get a marginally more minimized outline and slimmer outskirts for the show, in addition to a similar rapid execution and premium form quality. On the off chance that we could change a few things, we would have favored a full-sized SD card space, which would be helpful, and maybe a couple of more Type-C connectors incorporated into the container.
