  • Summary: A 13-inch notebook in an 11-inch body, the Dell XPS 13 packs a lot of screen and punch into its wonderfully compact frame. PROS: + Gorgeous infinity display + Small footprint + Comfortable wrist rest + Good keyboard CONS: - Oddly placed webcam - Runs warm on bottom If this ticks all the boxes, but you still want something abit cheaper compare to this version of the XPS here: http://amzn.to/18WFb11

Great laptop but wasn't for me

Fish007, Amazon

  • Summary: Great laptop but wasn't for me. I wanted something portable, powerful and efficient - and was very excited when I saw the unveiling of the new XPS 13. Seems like a perfect package and I couldn't wait to try it. I needed a laptop replacement at work at ordered the new XPS 13. Here is my impression after a week's use: PROS: *Size: this thing is TINY compared to other 13.3" laptops. Almost the size of the smaller brother, XPS 11. *Built quality: excellent.

Great laptop. Terrible, horrible, no good trackpad.

  • Summary: I love just about everything this laptop has except the trackpad. It's impossible to make precision movements with it. Scrolling, clicking and click+drag is a head ache. But on the plus side. It's small. Light. Compact. It boots in about 8 seconds. And as long some vampire app like Google drive isn't running in the background battery life is exceptional. I do regret not getting the touch screen but it wasn't available at the time.

Good ultrabook with some trade-offs (vs ThinkPad X1 Carbon)

The GOAT, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I bought the new Dell XPS 13 despite having always preferred ThinkPads (mainly because of the quality keyboards and "UltraNav" dual trackpad and pointer). I decided to go with the Dell because of the innovative packaging and the lower price. The Dell was about $300 less than a comparable, and bigger, ThinkPad X1 Carbon (14"). I originally lamented the lack of an i7 option, which was available on the ThinkPad (for even more money).

Initial Hands-on Impression: Nice small laptop with big clear screen, but too pricey!

Michigan Shopper, Amazon

  • Summary: I don't own the new Dell XPS 13 (2015). I played with the touch display version for about 45 minutes in the Microsoft store. Also, I played with the non-touch, 1080p matted display for a couple of minutes. Reading web articles (using IE browser), this matted display showed jaggies on the letters and also was dimmer and the colors were less vibrant.

Updated review after weeks of use.

Cesar, Amazon

  • Summary: This laptop is pretty amazing but in the end it just doesn't compare to a MacBook. At first I thought it would be able to replace my MacBook pro but I was wrong. The trackpad on this dell just isn't as responsive as the MacBooks. Also when surfing the web the dell stutters on YouTube and when scrolling through pages. The battery is definitely really good! The dell is very light and small and I love the inner carbon fiber molding.

Great laptop

Speerdo, Amazon
23 February 2015
  • Summary: Almost perfect. Fast, silent, good looking. Dell even does a good job of not bloating the hell out of this thing. McAfee is the only thing installed that I really would prefer not be on there. A few reviews have mentioned the lack of an SD card reader as a big deal. A usb SD card adapter costs $5. If you're looking for more storage space, get a micro USB drive. If you're using SD cards, keep a usb reader with your camera gear or whatever and you're golden.

Un-upgradable RAM

Roda Ruus, Amazon
13 February 2015
  • Summary: Almost perfect computer in any way BUT for some reason the DELL people decided to make it almost completely un-upgradable you can upgrade the SSD drive ( you need to take all computer apart in order to do so - but still - it's doable) but you CANT upgrade your RAM. So if you buy it with 4gb it will stay forever this way. There is no expansion slots for it. And initial RAM is build in on the motherboard.

Review from a Computer Science Major (Student)

kindle fire, Amazon
10 February 2015
  • Summary: I ordered the UltraSharp QHD (3200 x 1800 resolution), 8gigs of Ram, Core i7 version of this beautiful laptop with Windows 8 Pro (over $1600). I sold my 13” Macbook Air (2014 edition) for this and I can honestly say I’m satisfied. But before I sold it, I tested both of them first to see if I truly loved it. First noticeable differences… - Speakers: The Dell is definitely louder than the Macbook Air.
