Head-To-Head: Dell XPS 13 Vs. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon
At 14 inches, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon has the larger display of the two laptops, with the XPS 13 measuring at 13.3 inches. Both laptops feature a small bezel around their displays, a signature feature of the XPS 13 that Lenovo has now brought to the X1 Carbon. The small bezels allow the laptops to remain a manageable size while offering the maximum screen space to work on.
Both laptops feature same resolution, of 1,920 x 1,080, as the standard configuration. But both have higher-res options as well. Dell offers a QHD+ (3,200 x 1,800) touch-screen option for the XPS 13, while Lenovo offers a WQHD (2,560 x 1,440) non-touch display for the X1 Carbon.
Notably, the X1 Carbon has a webcam above the display where you'd expect it to be, in contrast to the awkward placement of the webcam below the display in the corner of the XPS 13.
