Good basic laptop with poor keyboard and average battery
1 week ago
Summary: As a writer, I bought this but had to send it back as the keyboard is poor. Key feedback is slow, causing problems at over 70wpm, and travel is too shallow. The F4 key protruded, indicating poor quality here. It's a real shame that they spent so much on the screen (which is excellent), but neglected this. The battery is pretty poor, and it does get warm - even using Word! Vents are underneath, so when on your lap it keeps you warm in winter! Not sure if that's intended.
Summary: Very fast to boot, but battery life has been about 4 hours and has been a disappointment. Windows 8.1 is a painful to use operating system. The touch pad is sticky. Overall have been underwhelmed by this unit from the start. I needed atleast 500GB storage and this was only SSD option from dell. I have 6 dell systems and this counts as the one I have been most disappointed with.
Summary: While it might sound great to have a machine with such a high resolution, the simple fact is a lot of Windows (desktop) applications do not render properly once you change the DPI settings (which you need to, in order to be able to actually read anything - indeed the default is 200%). Things render poorly, or just do not support scaling at all and render incredibly small.
Summary: I brought this laptop recently, laptop design and look is very good, but when i started installing couple of software's i started hearing lot of fan noise, its very disturbing. So returning this laptop.
Summary: I was very excited to receive my new laptop and was not disappointed with the fit and finish. It is gorgeous, sleek and easily sits in a room full of Macbooks without suffering the distain of the iUsers. The packaging was fitting for an expensive piece of gear. The keyboard is a dream to type upon and the display is fantastic; bright and crisp.
Summary: Ordered the new XPS 15 and upon arrival during the initial setup the machine turned itself off when I moved the screen, after this happened a few times I received a message "Internal hard disk drive not found. To resolve this issue, try to reseat the drive." Tried to reboot the computer but it only kept crashing.
Summary: Overall, the laptop s good. The battery life on average writing and web browsing (no games) right out of the box is ~ 6 hours, NOT the advertised 11 hours. No way I could even get close to that number.
