Summary: Very unreliable laptop. Have had issues since day one. Bought directly from Dell and called them within 30 days and told them about the issues. Keeps giving error when in idle mode and have to keep rebooting. Technical support told me to reimage to factory condition. Problem did not go away and unfortunately I did not call them back within 30 days of buying. This time technical support told me to change another setting. Problem still there.
Summary: My wife really spent a lot of time deciding on a Mac Book Pro for my Nov 2013 birthday. Sadly, after two lost days, I found Apple had changed file transfer protocols (SMB) used to transfer files over a LAN and I could not reliably access my Windows servers. So, after a couple calls to Apple Support and a number of hours I will never get back, back it went and I bought an I7 256 GB 9Q33 at Dell Outlet for 2/3 the cost of the Apple.
Summary: I have owned nothing but Dell computers for over 15 years now, so it pains to write a negative review (I have been thrilled with them in the past), but I feel compelled to caution people who are thinking of buying this product. I made my original purchase in Sept and after 3 weeks of waiting my computer finally arrived .... minus networking software. I'm a doctoral student and needed to do a lot of online research this semester.
Summary: I've had this laptop for over 2months now and, unfortunately, I haven't been pleased with the purchase. This laptop crashes all the time saying the "Internal Hard Drive Could Not Be Found." Do a Google search for this and you will see that others have had this issue as well and Dell hasn't done anything about it.
Summary: Love this thing! I've been wanting one since they first came out in October 2012, but I waited til now so I could get the Haswell version, and I'm glad I did. I have the 4th generation 512 with 8 GB of RAM. The battery lasts a full 8 hours, the screen is fantastic, keyboard is excellent, and it's so fast I can't keep up with it. My only issue has been that it does NOT automatically rotate the screen when I flip it..
Summary: I've never been a real techie. I'm fairly good with technology, but I've always been frustrated with aspects of it; as a result, I've never been IN LOVE with a piece of technology...until the XPS 12 with i5 processor. I thought we were going to enjoy four or five years of pure bliss together. I was wrong. One night I hit the power button to be greeted by a message stating that my hard drive couldn't be found. I had it for 10 days. I was absolutely crushed. CRUSHED!
Summary: This is a solid computer/tablet. The flip screen and integral keyboard work extremely well. They key to this device is that it is a fully functional Windows computer. It is reasonably fast for basic tasks (e.g. Word, Power Point, Excel). I would not recommend this for any sort of high-powered computing (e.g. gaming). The battery so far seems excellent.
