Best 13-inch laptops in 20xx

Dec 13, 2023
How in the world is the XPS 13 Plus "the best Windows laptop"!? It has poor battery life, has a frustrating "not touch bar" and touchpad, a bad webcam, abysmal port selection that makes the MacBook Air look good in comparison, and a design that isn't for everybody (including me; I hate it). I would personally look at the Asus ROG Flow x13 or the Framework Laptop 13 AMD instead; both nail the basics better and pretty much any other Windows laptop does too.

The XPS 13 & 13 Plus fell from grace in 2022 and I don't think they'll return anytime soon.
