Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook

 

The Dell XPS 13 is a beautiful Ultrabook that sacrifices some features in order to look so good

Design and build quality ; Performance ; Size and weight

Very limited amount of ports ; Screen could be better ; Touchpad drivers need work

Dell XPS 13 review: Stunning screen and compact design make this the first great laptop of 2015

 

It takes a lot to move the needle on laptop design. Hybrids have proved inventive over the past few years, with Yoga-style systems and the slick Surface Pro line redefining what a portable PC can look like. But for clamshells that don't swivel or...

Dell's revamped XPS 13 has a nearly borderless display and a very small body for a 13-inch laptop, plus the latest Intel CPUs

Upgrades can get expensive; a touchscreen isn't included by default; the boost from the new CPU is minimal

This new Dell XPS 13 is the first great laptop of 2015, but it owes that title more to a smart design revamp than Intel's new processors.

Review: Dell XPS 13

 

Finally, it's the Windows ultraportable we've been waiting for – the Dell XPS 13 is the best Ultrabook yet.

As it stands, this is a powerful, light, lovely ultraportable that comes a only hair’s breadth from achieving perfection.

Dell Skylake XPS 13 review: The best ultrabook just got better

 

A new 6th-gen CPU, a new NVMe SSD, and USB-C make the refreshed XPS 13 more than a minor upgrade.

Review: Dell XPS 13 (2015)

 

F or a long time now, if you've been after the very best in slim, light laptops – with zippy performance that doesn't deteriorate over time – you've had to turn to Apple. But the challenge from Windows machines is steadily growing, and Dell's latest...

"If all you want is a fast Windows laptop with a bright screen, and colour accuracy isn’t of prime importance, it’s a fantastic piece of kit. But it isn’t all that we were hoping for."

Review: Is Dell's XPS 13 The BEST Ultrabook?

 

Dell's Ultrabook has some interesting design cues, but is that enough to separate it from the Ultrabook pack?

Built from premium materials; Great keyboard; Slender design; ;

Few connectivity ports;

Great laptop.

 

Laptop build is 10/10. Features are great, trackpad is quite nice, speakers decent and beautiful screen. The negatives that I have had with this machine is that: - the battery life is not the best, people have said that they have gotten pretty amazing...

Great laptop, pulled down by coil whine.

 

Bought a refurbished model at a pretty good price. Performance is very good and so is the warranty as they had on site replacements. However after two replacements the coil whine issue persisted. If you really want a XPS 13, I suggest buying it...

Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

Horrible, Quality doesn't meet the price, and the brand is not worth it

 

And be aware, once you get Dell technician to open your laptop the first time, you will get into the loop of fixing it, I have another laptop from Dell where it's motherboard has been replaced 4 times... So having someone to replace a defected part of...

Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

Very beautiful screen, but poor trackpad has left me disappointed

 

. This is probably a function of the Quad HD touch screen and the battery hungry Windows platform. I'm used of MacOS where you can extract 8+ hours of web browsing off a single charge. You can't do this with the Dell. I have used the Dell less than a...
