Higher on the list is better.

## Dell XPS 13

LaptopMag Review

Screen size: 13.3 inch (1920x1080) (This one will also have the best colors.)

This is the best computer on this list (with the exception of some of the T460 upgrades), but it’s also the most expensive (with the same exceptions) at $1050. It’s also going to have slightly worse battery life than the others, but every computer on this list has battery life well above average. ### 8GB RAM, 128GB Solid-State, i5 XPS 13 If you’re okay with a refurb, this is the cheapest on this list at$780, but is still a solid computer. It does, however, also have the smallest drive at 128GB and a less powerful CPU.

### 8GB RAM, 240GB Solid-State, i5 T460 (with Upgrade Options)

This has some options for upgrading. The one I have selected has a solid-state drive (which will be faster than a hard drive) and is $970. You can also change it to a 500 GB hard drive for$900.

### 16GB RAM, 256GB Hard Drive, i7, 1920x1080 X260

I lied. This is the most expensive on the list. If you want a tiny laptop with a better screen and a faster CPU and drive, this is the one to go for. It is, however, \$1300. Cramming those higher-quality components in a smaller frame costs, and unless you’re really sold on the 12.5 inches, I would pick the Dell XPS 13.
