The Dell XPS 13 2018 (9370) @ CES 2018
Dell revealed their Dell XPS 13 2018 ultra-light laptop at CES 2018. It introduces a new alpine white glass fibre weave material. This new material took a dedicated Dell team more than 11,500 hours and 50 trials to get right.
The changes are not just skin-deep. The Dell XPS 13 2018 (Amazon | Lazada) is powered by the 8th Generation Intel Core processor, and boasts up to a 1 TB SSD. It is also the first laptop in the world to feature the GORE thermal insulation – the same silica aerogel used on the Mars Rover and Stardust Probe.

Let’s take a look at its key features in details :
Next-Generation InfinityEdge Display
The Dell XPS 13 2018 (Amazon | Lazada) introduces the next-generation InfinityEdge IPS display, with 400-nits brightness, a 23% thinner border and an 80.7% screen-to-body ratio. The optional 4K UHD display even boasts 100% sRGB colour gamut.
Smaller, Thinner, Lighter But More Powerful
Yet, it offers even more performance with the latest 8th Generation Intel Core quad-core processor, with a faster UHD Graphics 620 graphics processor.
New Woven Glass Fiber
The Rose Gold version of the Dell XPS 13 2018 (Amazon | Lazada) introduces an alpine white woven glass fibre palm rest. The woven crystalline silica fibre is not just strong and light, it feels like silk and better dissipates heat.
Strong & Light
The XPS 13 2018 (Amazon | Lazada) is cut from a single block of aluminium, with a carbon fibre / woven glass fibre palm rest, for maximum strength with minimal weight. The display is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 4, making it twice as resistant to damage.
Aerospace-Inspired Thermal Design
The Dell XPS 13 2018 (Amazon | Lazada) boasts a new cooler with two heat pipes and two fans, increasing its cooling capacity while allowing for a thinner form factor. It is also the first to use GORE thermal insulation to channel heat from the CPU and GPU to the heat pipes, and away from the chassis.
