Every day, the editorial staff selects a good plan for you, spotted on the web, which has a direct relationship with our editorial line.

In the small world of Windows laptops, the Dell XPS 13s are quite simply the best. These are light devices (1.16 kilograms for the PC that interests us today), thin and above all well armed to last over time.

These PCs are often sold at high prices. The most efficient versions can reach 2,000 euros, rarely less than 1,200 euros for those equipped with a Core i5. Today, it is the Dell XPS 13 of 2020, equipped with a “big” 11th generation Intel Core i7 processor, which sees its price drop by 400 euros on Amazon. We find it at 999 euros for a flash offer.

To better understand the offer

What are the characteristics of this Dell XPS 13?

Basically, the promise of the XPS 13 has not really changed over the past 5 years. It is a 13.3 inch laptop with a very slim frame and a very comfortable backlit keyboard.

But Dell is improving its recipe year after year. On this version 9305, the screen (Full HD definition, non-touch unlike what Amazon indicates) has very thin borders. The camera is also integrated into the borders, which was not necessarily the case in previous years.

Above all, the configuration of this model is particularly muscular. We thus find under the hood an Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, one of the most powerful of last year, associated with 8 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD. More than enough to run any application. office automation … Or even a few games that are not too greedy. Note that Dell has already confirmed the compatibility of this laptop with Windows 11.

Finally, on the connectivity side, there are 3 USB 3.2 Type-C ports (2 of which are Thunderbolt 4 compatible), a micro-SD card port and a good old jack port to connect a wired headset. If possible, take a good USB hub, to be sure you can connect keyboard, headset and Ethernet socket on it.

Who is this Dell XPS 13 intended for?

The Dell XPS 13 is a laptop dedicated to office tasks. It easily collects the 20 open Chrome tabs, with 3 different mailboxes and an Office document displayed at the same time. It’s perfect for office work or lecture note-taking and for those who need to hit the meeting room three times a day. It’s simple, it’s the PC that Humanoid uses for the few survivors on Windows. One of his very close cousins ​​is also in our guide to the best laptops.

It will run the Netflix or Hearthstone app properly, but will still be unable to handle greedy 3D games. If this laptop is quite silent when you ask it to display only spreadsheets, it is also heard when you use its (weak) graphics chip. You have been warned.
