I loved this laptop right from the first day. It is a high quality product with a very stylish look. It is very light and at the same time very powerful/super fast. If you want so: it is like a MacBook Pro in the look of a MacBook Air. It is also worthwhile noting that the Dell XPS 13 works very well with Ubuntu Linux. All the hardware is properly recognized and even the special keys work. I wanted a dual boot system that runs Windows and Linux and is just works nearly perfectly for both operating systems. This is exactly the laptop I wanted and it holds what it promises. And I cannot get enough of its stylish look. It almost became an intimate relationship.... my Dell XPS laptop an me .... :-)
I purchased this product to replace a 15" MacBook Pro with the primary goal of having an ultra-portable computer with reasonable power and battery life.
- Fantastic battery life. Running Windows 8, I'd get 6 hours or so. Running Arch Linux, I'd get up to 8. - Speedy. This system is quite fast for being as slim as it is. I definitely couldn't complain about the power. - Attractive. This was the first laptop that wasn't an Apple product that I felt really stood out from a style and build quality standpoint.
I ultimately returned this after I couldn't handle the splotchy backlight bleed around the edges of the screen. I went through three systems before finally giving up so it definitely wasn't just a single defective unit. This system will be fine for some users, but if you are a developer and spend much of your time in...
Very good computer. Aluminum anodized, fast and reliable. The ssid hard drive works very fast, and boots in 5 seconds. Tha battery is not as good as the rest of the pack, it doesn't last more that 4 hours, not even close to the 7 hours of the Samsung ultrabook. The other thing is the heat. When you start to work a little bit hard on big spreadsheets, the heat starts to come from the bottom of the screen and the top of the keyboard gets really hot. Besides this two things, it's a really good computer.
