Dell XPS 13 2016 (i7, 256 GB, QHD+) Notebook Review

Notebookcheck
2 December 2015
  • Summary: Pixel monster. Following the FHD version, we are now testing Dell's new XPS 13 with a QHD Infinity screen alongside Skylake Core i7. Will higher image pleasure and more power be at the expense of battery life?
  • Pros: metal casing's impeccable build, slim profile, ultra mobile, bright QHD panel, extremely thin display bezel, very good system performance, perceptibly faster graphics card, quiet even under load, decent connectivity for the size, superb input devices, tightly pulled hinges that do not rock, very ...
  • Cons: webcam's poor quality, color space coverage could be better; color accuracy is decent, restricted maintenance/upgrade options, lack of control over ambient light sensor

  • Conclusion: Or, if Dell really wants to impress us, we'd like to see a model of the XPS 13 that can charge over the USB Type-C/Thunderbolt connector (much like Apple's super-thin 2015 MacBook, but with additional ports).
  • Pros: Attractive, compact design, Good battery life and performance, thanks to new Intel "Skylake" CPU, Addition of USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 port
  • Cons: Ethernet and video connectivity require dongles or new cables, Oddly placed Webcam isn't ideal for video chats

  • Summary: In our opinion, the new 2015 Dell XPS 13 is the notebook to beat currently, for 13-inch machines. It's quite frankly as near "perfect" a design as we've ever seen in an utlralight notebook.
  • Pros: LOVE the no-bezel QHD+ display, Excellent performance, Fast boot-up, Fantastic build quality w/ carbon fiber, Solid battery life, Great sounding speakers
  • Cons: High-end SKUs are pricey, Web cam location a bit awkward

Digitaltrends
7 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Dell’s XPS 13 is an excellent piece of engineering that combines the latest Intel hardware with a robust, attractive and portable chassis. There are minor flaws. The speakers could be louder, the glossy display can be distracting in bright rooms, and the fan can be loud at load.
