Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook Review
Dell XPS 13 Review - 2015
Dell XPS 13 2015 Review
2014 Dell XPS 13 Review

18 Reasons For

Top Seller

The XPS 13 is a popular choice of notebook PC.

DELL Has Good Laptop Reviews

DELL has unexceptional ratings for its ultrabooks, however it has good average ratings when measured across its entire notebook PC range.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

The highest display resolution of the DELL XPS 13 is 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than a 1366 x 768 pixels laptop, which is the most common display resolution.

This laptop's display resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) is actually the best display resolution amongst all comparable spec portable PCs that were launched more than two years ago.

The worst display resolution amongst comparable types of laptop is 1366 x 768 pixels.

Intel Core I7 Processor Family

The DELL XPS 13 has an Intel Core i7 processor family which is better than most comparable spec portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. Most notebook PCs of a similar age and type to it have an AMD E processor family. The processor family of all similar spec notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as the XPS 13 ranges from Intel High End Desktop Processors to Intel Core i7-3xxx.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The DELL XPS 13 has a front camera, as do most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the XPS 13.

There are a number of other laptops with a front camera currently available that you might want to look at including cheaper laptops such as the X1 Carbon, or the ThinkPad X1 Carbon both from Lenovo or the Asus UX301LA (£843.02).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Fairly Big Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the DELL XPS 13 has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec laptops that have been around for a similar time to the XPS 13. Ultrabooks that are a comparable age to the XPS 13 have internal memory of between 4GB and 16GB, and the average internal memory is 5.9GB.

We compared this portable PC to all the other 8GB internal memory portable PCs and we think the DELL XPS 13, and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on portable PCs of a similar age and type to it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

Other laptops that have an SSD storage media currently available which you might also want to look at include the XPS 13, or the XPS 13 both from DELL or the Asus UX301LA (£843.02) which is cheaper.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo X1 Carbon Touch (SSD), or the HP Pro (SSD).

Chart Edit

Has a Touch Sensitive Screen

The DELL XPS 13 has a touch sensitive screen, which is unusual. Most of the other laptops that were launched around the same time as the XPS 13 do not have a touch sensitive screen.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative portable PCs with a touch sensitive screen currently available including a cheaper laptop such as the Lenovo X1 Carbon, or the Asus UX301LA (£843.02) or you might consider a higher rated laptop such as the Lenovo X1 Carbon.

Across all the ultrabooks that have been around for a comparable time to the XPS 13 the weights range from 870g to 3.3kg, and the average weight is 1.6kg.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other 1.4kg heavy portable PCs and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the XPS 13, and the Latitude 12 E7240 both from DELL or the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is also worth considering.
