The XPS 13 comes in a nondescript brown box, and the notebook sits inside another box between two large foam inserts.
The package does not include many accessories, just an AC/DC power adapter and manuals. The power adapter's cord can be nicely wrapped around the adapter using a special locking tab located on the end of the cable. The AC/DC power adapter can provide 19.5V @ 2.31A for an output of roughly 45W.
The top and bottom of the unit use a beautifully brushed anodized rose gold shell. The bottom also features two large rubber legs to ensure the notebook won't slide around.
The front edge of the unit has a small rectangular status LED. The rear features almost nothing. The left side of the unit features the DC charging jack, Thunderbolt 3 (USB 3.1) type-C connector, USB 3.0 port, headphone jack, speaker vent, and battery status button and LEDs. The right side of the device features a speaker vent, SD card slot, USB 3.0 port, and Kensington lock slot.
Underneath the XPS tagged piece of metal is the XPS 13's S/N and compliance information. The vents located on the bottom of the notebook are for air intake, and output vents are out of sight in the gap between the screen and rear of the notebook. You can see the output vents when the screen is opened.
A full QWERTY keyboard with large letters and numbers provides a great typing experience. The keyboard's backlight is decent for low-light situations, but it's not the brightest I have seen.
A smooth rubberized touchpad works well, and the default settings were good enough. Inside the notebook is a carbon fiber finish. The power button is located at the upper right-hand corner near the keyboard.
