Size & Weight

A standout feature on the MacBook Air originally was its thin form factor. At present, the laptop measures 0.68 inches thick. But with the latest redesign of the XPS 13, there's a major gulf between the two laptops on thickness; the XPS 13 now measures just 0.46 inches thick. The XPS 13 is also lighter at 2.68 pounds, versus the MacBook Air at 2.98 pounds.

But perhaps the most noticeable difference between the two laptops is on the overall size. Thanks in part to Dell's "InfinityEdge" display on the XPS 13, which places a minimal bezel around the screen, the new XPS 13 has a much smaller size all-around. The MacBook Air is an inch wider and an inch deeper than XPS 13, along with being thicker. The result is that the new XPS 13 has a total volume of 42.7 square inches, an amazing 45 percent smaller in total volume than the MacBook Air, which is 77.8 square inches overall.
