Dell XPS 14 review – if the average ultrabook is not enough for you

UltrabookReview
16 July 2012
  • Summary: If you want a slightly bigger and faster ultrabook, the Dell XPS 14 is a stylish option. It is one of the most beautiful laptops out there and has plenty of aces down its sleeve, unfortunately it is a bit too heavy, at 4.5+ pounds and only features an average display.
  • Pros: solid built, excellent looks, good backlit keyboard and trackpad, fast and able to deal with games as well, decent speakers
  • Cons: a bit heavy, not the best screen, extra options are quite expensive

  • Excerpt: Since the day the chunky XPS M1210 notebook morphed into the XPS M1330's sleek frame , Dell has almost always had a stylish laptop lineup to its name. Back in 2007, they were defined by brushed aluminum surfaces and ultra-thin LED backlit screens, and in 2010 , they went to a black-and-silver design...
  • Pros: Solid construction, Long-lasting battery, Good keyboard
  • Cons: Heavy, Iffy screen and touchpad buttons, Can get hot and noisy

Dell XPS 14 (2012) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
26 June 2012
  • Summary: For the same $1,499 as our review unit costs, you can get the three-pound ASUS ZenBook Prime UX31A , which doesn't have discrete graphics or last as long on a charge, but sports a full HD screen and a zippier 256GB SSD.

Dell XPS 14 (Summer 2012)

PC Magazine
26 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The new Dell XPS 14 (Summer 2012) joins the ultrabook ranks and brings the battery power, but a heavy weight and price tag keep it from achieving greatness.
  • Pros: Third-generation Core i7 processor. Full-size, backlit keyboard. USB 3.0 with PowerShare. Mini DisplayPort and HDMI out. Better styling than predecessor. Addresses some of the shortcomings of the XPS 13. Very good battery life.
  • Cons: Heavy. Expensive. Fans are loud during heavy computing. Discrete graphics give disappointing 3D performance. Loses optical drive.

Dell XPS 14

22 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The Dell XPS 14 is a bigger and badder Ultrabook. It has a 14" display that slightly outclasses the 13.3" Ultrabook standard and it weighs 4.6 pounds rather than the usual 3. That added weight gets you serious battery life thanks to the internal 8 cell, 69 wHr Lithium Ion battery.
  • Pros: Attractive design, good quality materials, very long battery life.
  • Cons: The TN display panel has higher than average resolution but not very wide viewing angles.

  • Summary: There's a lot to like about the Dell XPS 14. The new design is more modern, the audio is excellent, and the HD webcam is a definite perk. We also appreciate the power of the Intel Core i5 powerful and Nvidia Optimus graphics.

  • Summary: Unfortunately, Intel continues to drag its feet in supporting USB 3.0 natively, and the ones who suffer are the end-users and vendors like Dell who undoubtedly would like to offer their customers the faster spec (the XPS 15 and 17 both come with two USB 3.0 ports presumably by using an NEC chip).
  • Pros: Brushed aluminum looks fantastic, Lightweight yet sturdy, Comfortable to type o, Core i5 platform, Nvidia Optimus technology
  • Cons: No USB 3.0 support, No ExpressCard slot
