Why you should buy the Dell XPS 13 over any other laptop right now

We’re halfway through Prime Day 2020 and there is still a range of incredible Prime Day deals available. But if you’re in search of a premium notebook, look no further than Dell’s XPS 13 Touch — which is now available for $120 off making it the laptop to beat in this price segment.

The XPS 13 Touch, on the surface, is just like any other standard laptop on the market. But Dell has added a series of nice touches that elevate the experience above the rest. For starters, thanks to the narrow bezel around the screen, the XPS 13 Touch is one of the most compact notebooks and offers a 13.3-inch Full HD touch-enabled panel inside an 11-inch laptop form.

At just 2.7 pounds, it’s lighter than most of its competitors including Apple’s MacBook Air that measures 2.84 pounds. Further, unlike most laptops that feature a metallic interior, the XPS 13 Touch uses a carbon fiber material that enables a more comfortable palm rest and keyboard.

In spite of that, the XPS 13 Touch doesn’t compromise on internals either. There’s a high-end Intel 10th-generation Core i5 chipset, 4GB of RAM, a battery that’s rated to last over 19 hours, and a 128GB SSD. It also has a fingerprint reader housed under the power key for quick authentication. You’ll find all the essential ports as well such as a total of three USB Type-C and a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion.

At a discounted base price of $730, the XPS 13 Touch is hard to beat. It’s ideal for whether you are a student who has to multitask between several assignments or a writer who regularly has a gazillion browser tabs open for research. But if it doesn’t suit your preferences or you’re willing to spend a little more for upgraded hardware, there are plenty of more Prime Day laptop deals you can browse.
