Summary: I've had this computer for less than two years and for no reason at all it no longer works. I now have to pay for Dell to fix this problem, it is a waste of money. Do not buy this machine unless you are willing to take out a 3 or 4 year warranty as well.
Summary: It has been 8 years and I have always bought the xps systems from Dell. I agree they are a bit on the expensive side but you get what you pay for. The sleekest and most amazing laptop. Backlit Kepyboard, touchpad, the screen, speakers. I dont where to stop. Thanks you Dell for making such quality products. I am a fan forever.
Summary: I use my XPS in real estate. It is fast and the display is bright and clear. Excellent for presentations. Its design is attractive and simple. I find it easy to use. The touch screen is better than I expected. I recommend getting the leather pouch for protection when traveling.
Summary: Love the look and feel of the product, everything and more than I expected. Only problem is that the screen keeps failing requiring enforced closure and reboot. Still waiting on technical support so not scored well.
Summary: I travel a lot for work. Often having to be at multiple locations throughout the day. I was looking for something light, fast and reliable. This laptop has fit my needs perfectly. It boots fast, though not everyone likes it, but I am a fan of Windows 8 and everything works great! I get a lot of great compliments from people who see me break out the XPS. Love it!
Summary: I know it says to to "REFRAIN from mentioning competitors" in the review instructions- but we'll see. This laptop has everything packed into the most portable 13" touch display laptop on the market right now. Do your homework, compare this laptop to a similarly styled laptop that does not run windows and you will see. The drawbacks are minimal and have easy workarounds if you are either willing to spend a little extra money or re-purpose some old equipment.
Summary: Great power in a small landscape. Best of all is that ubuntu/linux runs like a sharm on this laptop. If you are a linux user, you should strongly consider this computer as a serious contender to a Mac Air.
Summary: Bought the laptop for my wife. the temperature easily goes to 80-90 Degree C within 10-15 minutes after switch on. always hang and lagging. Now after one and half year the laptop totally blackout without a reason and can't switch on anymore.
