The new flagship Dell XPS 13 is hands down a powerful notebook out of the box.
Packing updated hardware it can take on daily tasks with ease. I even render and edit videos with resource intensive adobe after effects and still be able to stream and it without a stutter.
As the owner of the XPS 13, you are definitely a productive person.
To help you maximize your productivity and make the most out of your laptop we have put together a list of the best accessories to go with it.
Dell Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
The Dell XPS 13 is ultra sleek and ultra tiny. Trying to get productive and type with the touchscreen or small keyboard is not going to result in high productivity.
When you have your laptop propped up on a stand or connected to an external display then you definitely need a mouse and keyboard. Dell answers your call with the Dell KMS 636 Wireless keyboard-mouse combo:
The keyboard comes will a full num-pad and the accessories pair via a single, tiny USB receiver. Your work area will stay cable clutter free and also leave you with free USB ports.
To add on to that, it has a long battery life so you good set for time
Dell Power Companion (18000 mAh) pw7015l
There are those times when you have to work outdoors, or have a long trip and have to catch up on Game of Thrones. When your laptop runs low on power, Dell comes to your rescue with the Dell Power Companion 4 Cell 12000 mAh.
What I love about the power companion is its portability. For example this above Dell 94TR3 Power Companion (12, 000mAh) measures only 7.9 x 1.6 x 6.2 inches (20 x 4,1 x15,8cm).
It can easily fit in your laptop bag.
You can also plug in your mobile phone and another device as the power pack comes with two extra USB ports. The power companion has a reliable power indicator that closely estimates the number of episodes of GOT you can watch before it runs dry.
Dell Premier Sleeve 13
When you have a shiny new gadget you need to keep it safe and scratch free. You need to protect your xps with this Sleeve which isnt that expensive. Actually its not expensive compared to what you have to pay if your laptop gets damaged
Designed for 13.3 inch laptops, specifically the XPS 13. When you mistakenly drop your laptop you need not worry about the shock damaging your device. The sleeve also keeps your laptop dust-free and scratch free.
Logitech c922 Pro Webcam
The new Dell XPS 13 9380 camera position has now been improved unlike on its old counterparts. For casual video calls with friends it will suffice.
But what if you want more, or you are doing some professional work. Then the Logitech c922 Pro Webcam is a great accessory for your XPS 13.
The cool thing about this camera is that even in a poorly lit room the picture quality is amazingly good.
For gamers you would be happy that it works well also with green screen and background removal. Also if you are a gamer or vlogger you can buy the this bundle which has the mic
Now if you are using the older versions of the Dell XPS 13 the webcam just does not work. You can mount the laptop on a stand or prop it up on a stack of books, you still have to adopt a weird pose when you use it. You definitely need the Logitech C922.
You get all the fancy numbers like 1080p recording, 720p video streaming but that isn’t the best part. The C922 has a clip you can use to attach the webcam to the XPS’ lid. If you have one you can mount it on a tripod for a better working experience.
Dell Active Pen
Whether you are in a meeting or need to fire up Windows Ink to jot down a few creative ideas then you need the Dell Active Pen.
You get up to 2048 pressure levels. The Active Pen only works with the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 model, not the standard model. A single click opens OneNote even when the system is locked. Clicking twice while the system is unlocked takes a screen-shot and pastes into OneNote.
Dell UltraSharp U2717D
The Dell UltraSharp U2717D is a must have for programmers, graphics designers, gamers and video editors.
First am going to generalise here, and say the XPS 13 screen is adequate for every average user. But are you an average user?
Say you are a programmer, you know you need a longer screen to see all you code and the bugs. Yes your code has bugs.
What about motion graphics, video editing etc, I can go on and on but definitely another screen is a productivity enhancing accessory.
The display gives you a stunning 2560×1440, 60Hz experience on 27-inches. A larger screen is always nicer on the eyes and gives a better working experience.
