The Dell XPS 13 and Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon are probably two of the best laptops in the market. Both the laptops share similarities in areas like fast performance, great display, lasting battery, and sleek design.

But there are differences in both of them. Although not significant, XPS is better with battery life; XPS13 lasts a few hours longer than the X1 Carbon. They both run on the i7-10710U processor so you can expect the performance to be the same. On the other hand, Lenovo offers double the storage that you get on Dell. These both are almost the same with only a couple of differences, but if the price isn’t the issue, you could choose any of the two and have no regrets. Likewise, you also get a fingerprint reader and a touch screen with both the laptops. But, with the vast price gap, you could probably go with the Dell XPS 13 and save a couple of thousand rupees.
