A Laptop with as Much Swagger As You

The Dell XPS has us falling in love at first sight. Like any good partner, this powerhouse laptop continues to impress. From its outstanding performance to its superior display and unbeatable battery life, every not-so-little detail that goes into the XPS redefines what it means to be a premium product. Did we mention how good the screen is for binge-watching *cough* we mean working? The 4-sided InfinityEdge Display creates a larger-than-life viewing experience. Plus it’s super lightweight so it can easily accompany you from work to class and more. See? We told you it’s the perfect partner. You and the XPS. The beginning of a beautiful love story.

So we figured…why not just make it for you? Yep, we designed merch. The good kind. The kind that speaks to everything you love about the Cosmo brand—bold, smart, winky—but is really all about you.
