Summary: Terrific！ It's touchable screen, although the description is not clarified. Book is slimer and lighter, easily portable. Battery is durable, in office use it can lasted more than 5 h. Win8 has not be adapted, moreover, screen is full-HD with excellent color exhibition. It worth the cost.
Summary: Although the Dell "developer" Sputnik version of the XPS with Ubuntu pre-installed is available, I chose this model instead due to the price difference (the Sputnik being several hundred dollars more). I played around with the pre-installed version of Windows 8.1 and although I enjoyed messing around with it, I didn't necessarily want to use it for daily work.
Summary: I just finished setting up one of these up for a friend, so I only had it for a few days. I was very impressed. The 13.3" 1920x1080 display is gorgeous, and though its default brightness setting is a bit dim even when adjusted to maximum using the keyboard function keys, it becomes much brighter after you disable "Enable adaptive brightness" in the Win 8 Control Panel power settings. The backlit keyboard has fewer keys than usual.
Summary: I had to find a machine to write programs with at work, meaning I would spend at least 8 hours a day on the keyboard. I decided to go with an ultrabook since I did not need a lot of computing power and wanted the portability and battery life. After A LOT of thought and bought and returned ThinkPad T440s-- Lenovo and I are not speaking anymore--, this Dell xps was my choice.
Summary: I bought this as a gift for a grandson who is computer savvy and is heading to college in September. He picked this unit based upon his needs and expertise. He seems delighted so that makes me happy. The price was good and delivery was as promised.
Summary: I looked everywhere for a nice fast portable laptop, and I was set on buying a Macbook Air or Pro. However, I just never found this laptop. Quick rundown of what I think: Pros: Screen (FHD) looks great and the touch is a nice addon Super Fast Bootup (2.1s for BIOS) and under 10 seconds Very Nice Keyboard with good key travel Great soft touch and the top and bottom casing is very professional (aluminum and carbon fiber) Better than Average Battery Life (So far at least...
Summary: I was previously an IT professional and tend to be very picky about laptops. This laptop is incredibly light and feels very well-constructed. It also has an amazing screen. The feel is very reminiscent of a Macbook Air. Personally, I'm not a big fan of Mac OS X, so it's great to see that there is a Windows-based competitor that feels similar in terms of quality (yes, I know you can install Windows on Macs, but I don't care for Mac keyboards either).
Summary: I got this to replace the slab of a Dell Inspiron I've had for 6 years with this and god, I wish I'd have got it sooner. This little thing looks wonderful (very MacBook Air-esque) and works like a charm with only one minor con. So it's fast (unbelievably fast for a machine of it's size). Boot up time is about 10-12 seconds. The keyboard is nice and well spaced, with funky space-age lettering on the keys (look first in case you hate it, I personally like it).
