Summary: I know that Dell is a good computer. I have had two Dell desktops and been happy with them. Consumer Reports gave this laptop high marks, and that is why, rather than return this right away, I am struggling to get it cleaned up and working right. The day after I took delivery there were all sorts of viruses an alien invaders interfering with smooth operation. There is a screen labeled Tuvaro which I still can't get rid of.
Excerpt: Back when I purchased the Studio XPS 13 from Dell, it as supposed to be one of the manufacturer's top of the line PCs. The line if Studio XPS PC's were billed as performance meets style PCs, but did they deliver. The notebook itself is pretty stylish, with the lid having a nice leather strip and silver accent to make it look both professional and sexy at the same time. The inside reveals a light up, full size chiclet keyboard with various touch media keys above it.
Excerpt: Dell studio is my first laptop to purchase. Although I don't have much to compare it too and I love my dell studio laptop. After having it only a year my harddrive crashed and I baby this thing it was never droped or played with by the kids.I thought it was a little young for such unforseen problems but who knows. I do love it and it is with me most always.some of the key features I love are the backlit keyboardand the portability of the studio laptop.
Summary: Que dire de ce Studio XPS 13 ? Du bon, et du mauvais... Côté bon : Design agréable (finition plastique/aluminium/cuir de bonne qualité), qualité sonore. Vista se révèle agréable à utiliser avec une configuration correcte (processeur Intel Duo P8600, mémoire 4Go DDR3, nVidia GeForce 9500M). Le disque dur est silencieux, et l'ordinateur en lui-même aussi. L'écran LED se révèle agréable, et peu consommateur.
Pros: Design, facilité d'utilsiation, portabilité (2kg), écran LED (option), silencieux
Cons: Nombreux soucis pour ma part (voir détail), trop peu de ports USB ! Rapprot qualité/prix médiocre .
