Quite Big Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the DELL XPS 13 has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as the XPS 13. The average internal memory of laptops of a similar type and age to the XPS 13 is 5.3GB.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL XPS 13 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

This portable PC's storage medium (SSD) is actually the best storage medium across all medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the XPS 13.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst comparable types of portable PC.

Laptops with a better storage medium that might also be worth considering include the T420s[pl_48433_price] (SSD), or the S540[pl_2433540_price] (SSD) both from Lenovo.
