Dell’s XPS laptops are renowned for their narrow bezels and their InfinityEdge displays. But apparently, infinity wasn’t enough. At CES this year, Dell refreshed its XPS 13 with somehow narrower bezels, making the display even more immersive.

It chops down the chin, and replaces that bezel space with more screen. While it’s 13.4 inches instead of 13.3 inches, the surface area is actually much larger with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Moreover, the top bezel contains an IR camera for facial recognition, something not seen since Dell was able to shrink down the webcam and move it from the bottom bezel.

All-in-all, the Dell XPS 13 now has a 91.5% screen-to-body ratio. It’s thinner too, now 14.8mm at its thickest point. It just has two Thunderbolt 3 ports, ditching one of the USB Type-C ports that were found on the previous generation.

The internals have been upgraded from Intel’s 10th-generation to, well, Intel’s 10th-generation. Dell has moved from Comet Lake to Ice Lake, meaning that it’s going from a more powerful 14nm CPU, to a more efficient 10nm CPU that has much more powerful Iris Plus Graphics.
