Dell XPS 13 is a 13-inch laptop in an 11-inch shell (hands-on) - Pocket-lint

 

Dell has taken the wraps off the latest additions to its XPS family of devices: the XPS 13 and 15. We got some hands-on time with the XPS 13, a laptop

Dell XPS 13 (Early 2015) Notebook Review

 

Simply brilliant. Dell now offers the XPS 13 with a non-touch display and a more mainstream resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels for a much more affordable price. Not only is the new display brighter, but it's matte as well, which improves outdoor...

Bright & matte Full-HD display, Very narrow bezel, High-end parts and superior build quality, Very small chassis for the given screen size, Ports are all the way at the back and won't get in the way, Great battery life, Very good overall performance

Color accuracy not that great, Minimal expansion options (RAM is soldered on), 128 GB SSD might not be big enough for some, Only 2x USB 3.0, CPU throttling under maximum load levels

The QHD+ touch-equipped version of the XPS 13 impressed us with our editor noting that "...Dell’s latest Ultrabook pulls out all the stops with smart revisions to an already widely-praised design...". The newest member of the Ultrabook, this time sans...

Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook Review

 

No compromises - part 2. Compact, highly mobile, attractive - this is how one could sum up the Dell XPS 13. Thanks to its Core i7 processor, the notebook is quite powerful as well, although the battery life suffers as a result.

IPS QHD+ touchscreen, Thin bezel, Good battery life, Good performance, Build quality is high, Attractive and robust chassis, Good input devices, Stiff hinges

Comparatively dark display, Not very generous port selection

With the XPS 13, Dell introduced a very compelling mobile 13.3-inch Ultrabook - but of course at a price. The input devices are very good and the notebook with its fast SSD is capable of very good overall performance. In addition, the temperatures are...

Dell XPS 13-9343 Touchscreen Ultrabook Review

 

Refusal to compromise… You can't have it all—or can you? Dell's latest XPS 13 pushes the envelope in a number of different critical categories, but most notably portability: this is the smallest 13.3-inch notebook we've reviewed. Could we be witnessing...

Beautiful QHD+ Touchscreen, Impossibly small bezel, Excellent battery life, Fast system performance, Impeccable build quality, Aluminum casing that's both rigid and attractive, Good input devices, Sturdy hinges, Excellent thermal management, CPU...

Somewhat constrained port selection, Average wireless performance, Noisy fan on rare occasions, Touch configurations are relatively expensive

Another day, another serious contender for the ultraportable crown. This past year alone, we’ve seen the latest MacBook Air revision (which, for all its strengths, features a relatively pedestrian display lacking touch), the Microsoft Surface Pro 3...

Dell XPS 13: To infinity & beyond

 

The Dell XPS 13 is touted as the world's smallest 13-inch notebook and much of this can be attributed to its ultra slim display bezel. But is there more to this notebook than its stunning looks? We take a closer look.

Awesome QHD+ IGZO IPS display ; Attractive "infinity display" design ; Compact, light, very portable ; Decent all-round performance ; Good battery life

No HDMI port, only a Mini-DisplayPort ; Weird positioning of webcam ; Inaccurate trackpad

On a whole, the Dell XPS 13 is easily one of the best 13-inch ultraportable notebooks in the market right now, packing decent performance in an extremely compact and sexy package. Could it mark the beginning of a reversal of fortunes for Dell? We would...

Dell XPS 13 (2014) Review

 

Though you wouldn't necessarily know it by looking, Dell's MacBook Air challenger got a whole lot better in 2014. Now, in its third generation, the XPS 13 for 2014 hasn't changed at all externally, which actually is a good thing as Dell's design and...

The Dell XPS 13 remains one of the most solidly built Windows Ultrabook on the market today with build quality good enough to compete against the class-leading MacBook Air series. Weighing in at just over 3 pounds, the XPS 13 delivers a lot of power...

Dell XPS 13 9343 review with Infinity Display – a keeper!

 

Dell did a great job with the XPS 13 9343. They created a compact and light laptop with a 13 inch display, fast hardware, good keyboard/trackpad and long battery life, and on top of all these, a laptop with very little flaws. On the other hand, the...

nice industrial design, splendid build quality, matte IPS display, good keyboard and trackpad, fast hardware, no bloatware on this version, mostly noiseless, punchy speakers, good battery life, affordable starting prices

surprisingly dim display (see the Screen chapter), charges slowly, can get hot, annoying white LED next to the trackpad, touchscreen equipped models are pricey

Update: You should also read this post if you want to know what I think about the laptop after using it daily for 15 months, and this article if you’re interested in my opinion about the XPS 9350, the updated model with Skylake hardware.

Dell XPS

 

Debated between this and a Surface Pro. I think that the Dell XPS is the hands down winner

Wonderfully light laptop. Did not want a tablet but with the touchscreen, size and weight you get the tablet benefits with a very powerful small laptop. The screen is absolutely amazing

Pretty pricey but worth it
