The 13.3" 400-nit QHD+ touchscreen panel is brilliant in its own right. The bezel is minimal, and the screen can be opened as much as you see above. With a resolution of 3800x1200 on a 13" screen, scaling is a bit difficult for some applications, but overall I didn't have any serious issues.

The one thing I like least about the XPS 13 is the location of the 720p webcam. At the lower-left corner of the screen, it offers an awkward angle.

You can use the provided charger to charge the XPS 13. Alternatively, you can also use a type-C charger plugged into the ThunderBolt 3 port to charge the device. The ThunderBolt 3 port also can power external devices.

Opening the device was simple enough. Unsurprisingly, more than half of the internal real-estate is for the battery.

The 256GB M.2 PCI-E SSD is made by Toshiba, model number THNSN5256GPUK.
