Dell’s ultra-desirable XPS 13 is getting a big upgrade in 2019.

Announced in time for this year’s CES in Las Vegas, the new XPS 13 features a larger display, more premium design and a new edge-to-edge keyboard. 

The most visible improvements here concern the laptop’s 14-inch InfinityEdge display. Where the previous models worked to whittle away the top and side-bezels, the new XPS 13 cracks down on the bottom-most edge of the display. All told, Dell say it offers a 6.8% larger display. 

As mentioned, the keyboard on the new XPS 13 is also getting a rebuild. The new keyboard is said to be approximately 17% larger and will stretch all the way to the edge of the clamshell, allowing for more comfortable usage. 

The new XPS 13 is already shaping up to be a significant upgrade on its predecessor without compromising what already worked about one of the best Windows laptops out there. Under the hood, it'll come equipped with a 10th Gen Intel CPU (up to an i7-1065G7), up to 32GB of RAM, up to 1 terabyte of PCIe SSD storage, a 52Whr battery and either Intel Iris Plus Graphics or Intel UHD Graphics (depending on the processor).

Australian pricing and availability for the XPS 13 is to be confirmed.
