From a design standpoint, the XPS 13 isn’t changing. It has the same look as the model we saw at CES earlier this year, which finally put the webcam in the right place.

It will start with an Intel Core i3-10110U and go up to an Intel Core i7-10710U. These processors have integrated Intel UHD graphics. Additionally, the XPS 13 will support up to 16GB of LPDDR3-2133 RAM and up to 2TB of PCIe SSD storage.

Dell is one of the first with a Comet Lake laptop. It also led on Ice Lake with the recently-launched Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. Though we have yet to test it.
