Dell XPS 13

In terms of design, the XPS 13 really does feel next-gen both apple and dell have taken the exact same chassis as the previous model and just dropped in some newer hardware inside. But the XPS is a good deal thinner lighter it has razor-thin bezels and is overall a much more compact and portable machine. Build quality is top-notch on both though with aluminum chassis being able to open them with one finger. 

Let’s bring up a bit of tech chat and now one important difference between these two are the screens as we mentioned the Dell comes in two flavors Infinity Edge display whereas the MateBook X Pro goes with a Full HD Infinity Display. But as you can see they both do have a 16 by 10 aspect ratio so you just have a little bit more room at the top and bottom of the screen which we think makes a big difference especially in these smaller 13-inch laptops.

MateBook X Pro

Extremely thin, ergonomic and powerful: these are (among others) the qualities of the Huawei MateBook X Pro! Its speed and HD touchscreen will not fail to fascinate you, as well as its battery with its 12-hour battery lifa and light weight (1.33 kg). This device is ideal for anyone looking for a laptop that lasts a day and is sturdy enough to carry it anywhere.

The Huawei MateBook X Pro has an attractive and elegant design. It is compact, its length measuring 12 inches and its width being 8.5 inches. It is also so thin with its thickness of 1.4 cm. Its handling is pleasant, you will be proud to wear it wherever you go and you will wow your business partners by deploying it during your meetings.

The touch function is a considerable advantage of this laptop. With one finger, scroll through your content, flip through your ebooks, sneak through your PowerPoint presentations and web pages.

This device is easy to handle. For example, you can fold the keyboard behind the screen if you want to use it exclusively as a tablet. The tent position is handy if you need a stand for comfortable watching a movie or for better reading your cooking recipes.

The Dell promises that the XPS 13 12 hours of battery life with a single charge.
