I ordered the XPS 11 direct from the Dell website, and have been using it now for four days. I had been using a Lenovo Yoga 11s for three weeks, but will be sending it back for a refund. Here's why.
The Dell XPS 11 is more expensive. I upgraded to the 256gb SSD and paid $1,249. This is about $400 more than the Yoga 11s, and most of the other internal specs are identical, including a Core i5 processor, and 4gb of memory. The reasons for justifying the increased price are twofold.
First, the display on the XPS 11 is simply the best currently available. It is true QHD, with a resolution of 2560X1440. Worth noting is the fact that the Google Chrome web browser (when installed on the desktop) runs flawlessly. This has been a well noted compatibility issue with other QHD displays, including the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro.
Second, the build quality and form factor of the XPS 11 is by far superior. The XPS 11 is made from carbon fiber and machined aluminum. These...
First off -- The general description and details/shipping for this listing are off. It obviously doesn't weigh 5.5 lbs and shipping weight can't be 1 lb. :-) The device is 2.5 lbs on its own and the shipping wt is likely the 5 lb figure with power supply and packaging.
3.5 stars is what I'd really prefer to post at this time. It's better than okay and I like it, but... My initial experience with this unit (i5/4G/128G model, direct from Dell) was mostly positive. The build quality is excellent and screen resolution is great, but things went a bit downhill during my first 30 days. Here's my cons list with details.
"Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered. Intel HD Graphics driver." This problem occurs randomly upon wake-up after the screen powers off due to sleep mode. Upgrading the driver from Dell's support site has no effect. Upgrading from Intel's driver site doesn't work ("you must obtain driver from your unit manufacturer...
My experience from receiving it today and using it for a few hours.
Build Quality: The overall build quality is great. I do not like how to screen is placed on the frame because there are gaps along the edges. The mouse pad is AMAZING compared to any computer, even a Mac. The Windows button on the screen takes a bit of pressure and you have to touch it spot on to get it to work. The keys feels very nice in their rubber finish. I have not put the computer hardware through any test (games), but the boot is VERY fast (it is an SSD so duh). The wifi for some reason is not as fast as my other laptop, but that may be due to my cousin using the internet or my router needs to be restarted.
Usage: The keyboard that everyone says is garbage is okay. I have only used to computer for a few hours and all of the time was getting my programs and Windows settings in, so it was half and half with my mouse (VERY NICE) and keyboard. I have only used a touch...
