CES 2020: Dell dives in with new XPS 13 notebook, gaming monitor


Dell's new XPS 13

Plus: when the new devices will hit Australia.

Getting ahead of the manic CES 2020 news rush, Dell has announced a new iteration of its popular XPS 13 laptop and a new Alienware-branded monitor targeted towards the gaming masses.

The new XPS 13 9300 promises to be both smaller and thinner than its predecessors while also sporting a "long battery life", thanks in part to advancements in processor technology.

While some parts have changed, the new XPS 13 keeps true to the design of recent XPS devices. It retains the line's signature carbon fibre palm rest, machined aluminium shell and InfinityEdge display.

Speaking of the InfinityEdge display, its size has jumped up 6.8% and had its brightness bumped up by 25%.

The laptop will sport Intel's 10th generation of mobile processors, which Dell says will help with the device's battery life while providing enough power and performance for users on the go.

The brand has also removed foam from its packaging this time around, making it more sustainable and easier to recycle.

The new XPS 13 will set you back at least US$999.99 and will launch in a number of North American and European countries before launching globally, including Australia, on 4 February.

Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor

The launch of the Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor is Dell's latest attempt to better compete in the crowded gaming monitor space.

The new hardware will sport a 1,920 x 1,080 (FHD) resolution display. Catering to the demands of many gamers, the monitor also packs in a 1 millisecond response time and a 240Hz refresh rate.

While it will come equipped with AMD Radeon FreeSync, the monitor will also be compatible with Nvidia's G-Sync technology. This combo means people on both sides of the graphics card superiority debate can enjoy smoother and tear-free gaming on the panel.

It will hit shelves globally on 11 March and will start at US$499.99. Australian pricing hasn't been confirmed.
