100% of the enclosure by a CNC (computer numerical control) machining process. A high precision, machine-milled aluminum chassis creates an elegant design with high build quality that’s stronger and stiffer than magnesium or plastic. The latest Corning Gorilla Glass 6 is strong, as well as impact and scratch resistance. Anodizing provides a superior, scratch-resistant surface, but here, edges are dipped a second time to further prevent damage from repeated plugging and unplugging of peripherals. Using this finish on the metal achieves the perfect color without using paint, which could chip away over time. Stainless inlayed logos are laser cut out of a sheet of stainless steel and dropped into the machined cut outline by hand. Elements like the display, keys and touchpad are all larger for an easier, more optimized user experience. The XPS features a 6.8% larger 16:10 display, 17% larger touchpad and an edge-to-edge backlit keyboard with larger key caps. The new twin coil pressfit hinge is designed to maximize screen to body ratio and enable 4-sided InfinityEdge. It makes it easier to open, while staying stable when you are using the touchscreen.
