Intel Core I5 Processor Family
The DELL XPS 13 has an Intel Core i5 processor family which is better than most notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec to it. Most comparable spec portable PCs that were released more than two years ago have an Intel Core i5-3xxx processor family. Across all comparable spec notebook PCs that came out more than two years ago the processor family ranges from Intel Core i3-2xxx (worst) to Intel Core i7-3xxx (best).
