    Dell's new XPS 13 and XPS 15 laptops are promising additions to a popular series, but the company has continued to place the system's webcams below the screen, making for awkwardly angled Skype calls. The company's marketing director of the XPS products, Donnie Oliphant, explained that it's because the display bezel is too thin to accommodate a camera on top. Hopefully that will change in the future, as Oliphant said the goal is to ultimately place a camera inside the display. Check out the video above to see what else he had to say about the new XPS laptops, Dell's future plans and its new e-waste recycling initiative with actor Nikki Reed.
