Thickness And Weight
As mentioned, portability is a main selling point for both laptops in our comparison. The MacBook, however, is the clear winner in that respect. The MacBook measures 0.52 of an inch thick and weighs just 2.03 pounds. By comparison, the XPS 13 measures 0.6 of an inch thick--and there's an even larger gulf in terms of heaviness. The non-touch model of the XPS 13 weighs 2.7 pounds, and the touch-screen model has a weight of 2.9 pounds.
