It has been long that we pitted two laptops against each other that were as powerful as Macbook Pro 13 with Retina and Dell XPS 13. At around $1299  and with 13 incher displays onboard, there are chances that both win this battle. Moreover, the design specs for both are so good that at best—they are a draw.  The Macbook Pro is sleek with an aluminum uni-body that renders it extra class; the Dell XPS 13 is made from carbon fiber with an aluminum frame as well. The soft touch style makes it lighter and the edge-to-edge screen style is a winner. The touch and key styles fare better on the Macbook Pro 13 incher as does the backlit style.
