The new Dell XPS 13 laptop fixes this moving the webcam to above the display on all three models that sport Intel 8th-Gen 'Whiskey Lake' CPUs with Core i3, i5, and i7 models on offer. The webcam being placed at the top forced Dell to drop Windows Hello support, while the new XPS 13 has an optional fingerprint sensor for fast-unlocking your new laptop.

Dell will have its new XPS 13 available starting January 8 for $899.
