Summary: This laptop works great, feels great and looks great. It is heavier than a standard ultrabook it's hardware is beefier and it even feels sturdier. How many ultrabooks have dedicated graphics cards? The speed and battery life is great. The keyboard and touchpad take a while to get used to but, it feels great once you do. Screen is quite bright is detailed, fun to watch movies on. The battery life is a pleasant surprise.
Summary: I searched a lot of sites and reviews before finally deciding on getting the XPS 14 and I was not disappointed. The Good: It is solid, fast and with Windows 8, it is even more fast and presents an enjoyable experience. It is also very solid and stable and you can see the materials used are top quality. It is really good. The battery life is around 7 - 9 hours of regular use and it boots and shuts down in 7-10 seconds. Really quick.

All computers work very well with this internet but not this one. Maybe it is some configuration problem.
Summary: I'm happy with this purchase. It's a powerful little machine. It weighs a bit more than I expected and am not sure it should be classified as an ultrabook. This particular model does not have a replaceable battery. I wish I knew that before purchasing. I ran Linux on it for a while but recently installed Windows 7. The 32GB SSD barely contains the Windows OS.
Summary: The laptop itself is very pretty and light, however after one week of minimal use I got an error message (blue screen) and had to call our IT guy to fix it. It was unable to boot and kept asking me to trouble shoot with no results. He returned it and within two days a different error message came up (Checking Media [Fail]. He called Dell customer support who directed him to a forum on their website which explained how to fix the problem ( [...] ) .
