Design-wise, the new devices look similar to the early 2020 models. It retains the InfiniteEdge FHD+ display with a thin body.

In terms of battery life, the refreshed XPS models are now Intel Evo certified. It means that the laptops now support fast charging.

With this certification, Dell says that the 2-in-1 and the regular XPS 13 may last up to nine hours of usage.

On the other hand, Dell has released a developer edition of the new XPS. This system is based on Linux and is running Ubuntu 20.04LTS.

According to Dell, this device is targeted to last for up to 19 hours of usage. But just like other devices, it all depends on the usage.

The Dell XPS 13 is one of the best ultrabooks out there. This refresh might be the best move for the previous two generation owners. But for someone looking for a great ultrabook, then this refresh is a wise choice.
