I wanted SO bad to like this machine. However, it is unusable.

Summary: I bought this from Dell.com. It is Day 1. I have initiated a return. I plan on waiting it out. In October Dell is releasing the next generation of XPS 13 and XPS 15 - with the new Intel Skylake processors. Hopefully by then they will have figured this out.
Summary: Computer looks very nice, and has decent performance, but the battery died after 3 months. Should be covered under the warranty, but a little frustrating to deal with in the middle of a semester.
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: 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.
Attention: Fan noisefinicky, touch pad, jumping cursor, and Microsoft edge issue

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: 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.
