Summary: Very nice design, great screen...blah blah blah... I bought this laptop from the windows store online on 6-5-15. I was excited to use it once it arrived; two days after spending hours installing all my programs on it, the battery would not charge.
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 ...
Summary: What everyone has said about the hardware is true - it's probably one of the best windows laptops, and certainly the best Dell laptop, to have come out in recent years. However, don't get too excited. The touchpad/trackpad on this thing is horrendous.
Summary: I wanted this computer strictly because it seemed aesthetically pleasing in the photos. Prior to this purchase I was using a Zenbook which I thought was a great looking computer. That computer got compliments, I was proud of it, and it was a small little powerhouse.
Summary: After having this laptop for a week, here are my thoughts: For a 1000$ laptop, it should not be having issues such as coil whine or trackpad jumping. When the backlight is on, there is an absolutely annoying coil whine that does not get better.
Summary: I have one of these Ultrabooks and it is a very nice machine with two exceptions. One is the lack of ports: two USB 2.0 ports, a mini-display port and a headphone jack. I'd really like to see more. You'll find yourself buying extra dongles to use the display port or to connect to an ethernet line.
