Why it’s cool: Dell has put together a thoughtful design with the XPS 13. It’s got an aluminum lid and a carbon fiber underbelly, and the 13.3-inch screen’s surrounding bezel is so narrow that the computer travels like an 11-incher. Dell’s promising close to nine hours of battery life, too.
Notable specs: Weighs 2.98 pounds; measures 3/4 of an inch thick.
Availability: Late February, starting at $999.
