Summary: The laptop looks nice and it is light. However, the battery life is nowhere near as advertised. Also, it has issues with the touchpad where it randomly becomes unresponsive even if all the updates are installed.

Summary: My XPS13 constantly returns double characters for a single keyboard stroke. It is useless for typing which is why I got a laptop instead of an iPAD. It's probably one of the worst devices I've ever owned. Seriously, look elsewhere if you need a functional keyboard.
Summary: I purchased this directly from Dell because I wanted the extra warranty. Everything about the laptop is great save the battery life. Since the screen is powerful it really sucks power. I get maybe 3.5 hours using it in "battery saver" mode. That is just unacceptable. The rest of it is nice.

Summary: I bought this Dell XPS 13 9343 QHD 8gb Ram 256gb SSD from Microsoft online store. Before purchase I tested it at a local MS store and I felt that was a great product with Windows 10. The reason to buy online was mostly because of extra 5% off with the use of a discovery card.
Summary: Bought it at the Microsoft Store as they had a sale. Beautiful laptop with incredible QHD+ screen, but therein is the problem. Windows and associate software has not caught up to the 3200x1800 screens. Scrolling in both IE and Google Chrome is terrible. Video playback is jerky.
Summary: Crashed during initial setup and tech support was unable to help. Finally figured it out and got it running, but it's got terrible wifi (always dropping the connection) and crashes/hangs at random times. To top it off, I just discovered the 256Gb drive was partitioned to only use 28Gb. WTF, Dell?
Summary: Looks great on paper! Reviewers all love it, Problem is that the touchpad is virtually unuseable (poor double finger scrolling, lags in normal scrolling, difficulty in precise mouse pointing). There are now hundreds of emailers complaining about it.
Don't buy the touch version ... your battery will suffer.

Summary: I have a lot of expectations regading this machine, but I finish up selling it after 3 weeks of use. I think that because I have the touch version, I have issues regarding: - very, very poor battery life (never more than 5:20). - the high def screen is useless ...
