Dell's new XPS 13 finally puts the webcam above the display but doesn't compromise on bezels

It just wouldn't be CES if Dell didn't refresh at least one of its premium XPS laptops, and this year, we're getting a new XPS 13. Probably the most notable feature though, is that Dell has finally moved the webcam to the top of the display.

Previously, the webcam was located underneath the screen, forcing the company to be mocked by its competitors. The firm didn't compromise the bezels on its InfinityEdge display to do this though; it shrunk down the webcam to 2.25mm.

The InfinityEdge bezels come in at just 4mm this year, providing the most immersive experience yet. Combined with Dell Cinema's HDR and 4K resolution, Dell says it's the ideal solution for streaming video on your laptop. Dell Cinema also provides premium audio and network quality.

The XPS 13 now comes with Intel's latest eighth-generation U-series processors, codenamed Whiskey Lake. And it has the specs that you'd expect, with up to 16GB LPDDR3 RAM and 2TB SSD.

But the selling point, as always, is the narrow bezels that result in a smaller footprint than its competitors. Even though the device is small, Dell still promises up to 21 hours of battery life.

It comes in three colors now, including Frost, Rose Gold, and Platinum Silver. The UHD touchscreen model in Platinum Silver and in Rose Gold is available today, while the UHD touch Frost and all FHD non-touch models will be available later this month. After this month, there will be an FHD touchscreen model in silver. The XPS 13 will start at $899.99.
