Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook (4th gen Core)

 

Dell's XPS 13 Ultrabook offers great battery life, a vibrant screen, and fast storage, but also a few annoyances

Vibrant Full HD screen ; Good battery life ; Swift overall performance ; Solid build quality

Screen is very glossy ; Can get noticeably warm ; Annoying dynamic contrast changes

Dell's XPS 13 features aluminium and carbon fibre construction, and is blessed with looks that are appealling. It has some tiny drawbacks, in our opinion, but should nevertheless be considered if you're after an Ultrabook that has good build quality,...

Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook (4th gen Core)

 

The last time we had a look at the Dell XPS 13 was a couple of years ago, back when the CPU of choice was a second generation Intel Core product. Not much has changed with the unit since then in terms of the way it looks, but it does have a much...
