Key features:

  • 13.3-inch 3,200 x 1,800-pixel touchscreen
  • Intel Core i5 and i7 Kaby Lake processors
  • 1.29kg
  • 128GB-1TB SSD

Shaken by the arrival of the new MacBook Pro, Dell's lead in the laptop market shrank a little. Luckily for the company, it got its refreshed 2016 line-up of XPS 13s out just in time to see off Apple's assault.

Available in a range of specifications starting from £999, the XPS 13 is hard to beat in terms of value for money when you consider the specifications. The Thunderbolt 3 port will be very useful for high-end video editors, as will the high-resolution display.

The SSD is extremely fast and the Intel Core i7 processors available on the higher-end models easily beat the Core i5 chips inside the latest MacBooks that cost quite a lot more.

The new MacBook Pro beats it in terms of 'wow' factor, but there aren't many better-looking Windows 10 machines around.

Our Score:

9
