It is barely a month after Dell first show it to the world at CES 2019 but here it is: the latest iteration of XPS 13 is now available in Malaysia. Just like previous years, the 2019 model is still a highly compact notebook that offers 13.3-inch display in an 11-inch body although it does come with a number of tweaks.
One of the biggest changes that the 2019 model has brought to the table is the repositioning of the webcam from the lower part of the display as per last year’s model back to the top bezel once again. This solves the legendary “Nose Cam” issue on 2018 Dell XPS 13 but according to Dell, it requires the company to come out with the smallest ever webcam that they ever had developed.
Other than that, Dell has also equipped a new variable torque hinge into the 2019 XPS 13 that apparently allows it to be opened easily with one hand. The hinge also apparently made the laptop’s more stable when it is being used while on the move as well as when users interact with the laptop’s touchscreen on models that come with such display.
Additionally, the 2019 XPS 13 can also be obtained with the new Arctic White colorway for its palm rest alongside the equally new Frost finish for its aluminum chassis. The same palm rest colorway has also been implemented for the Rose Gold version of XPS 13 which is a colorway that was introduced with last year’s model.
In Malaysia, the new laptop can be obtained in several variants that are mainly separated by their display, processors, RAM, storage, and colorway:
