Recent reviews:

This laptop has some features that are excellent, and others that make it hard to use. Touch ScreenPROS- greatly responsive in general. – Because of how good the touch screen is, I find myself using it quite usually. CONS- Because of how much I use the touch screen, the screen looks horribly smudged all the time. Quality of 4K ScreenCONSI use a Macbook Pro retina, an iPad with retina, and the iPhone with retina. Websites looked awful in the 1st few weeks of using the computer, because their pictures were all pixellated, and the layouts did not quite have the same responsiveness that the websites of today have. On the XPS, but, the amount of pixels on the screen means that the entirety of the computer looks ridiculous. Websites have text that seems ants on the screen. & 34;Oh but you may be able to zoom & 34; I can zoom on any computer that I own. I do not want to have to do that, because zooming the text breaks layouts of some websites, and in general just looks dumb. This same issue shows up on the start menu. You go to the start menu, and the icons are freakishly tiny. I have used Windows 8. 1 on other computers with smaller monitors. This is not an issue on there. This seems it is partially a Windows issue, and partially a Dell issue. Why am I blaming Dell too? Because they have produced software to add functionality to the trackpad (more on that in a moment). When you are charging over $2,000 for a laptop, it behooves you to look at something as basic as how things on the screen look to a user before you send it out, and create a thing to deal with that issue if indeed one exists. PROSMovies look gorgeous.

This laptop had so much possible. I finally got the PC on a price error for $500- I would not pay a penny more. Here is why:1st product came with a flawed track pad. Shipped in for fix and it came back worse than when shipped. Then fought for a new substitute. Received a substitute to find new issues. The OS was improperly installed (Dell provided a backup USB for me to new install). The trackpad is substandard- pressure on the back of the case can because the mouse to click- or stick when clicked. It’s better on my second laptop, however still is the worst I have had on a laptop, $200 netbooks included. Worse are two issues that can not be fixed- the NVIDIA GPU is worthless. When running games, the computer after time defaults back to the intel graphics. This after broad troubleshooting in Nvidia control panel, Intel settings and registry edits. My guess is that the cooling isn’t enough to run the GPU at capacity. Battlefield runs at about 80 fps for about 5 minutes, then drops to 10 fps when the hardware switches. When on the GPU, the card runs at about 70C usually idle, which indicates a cooling problem. Also, there’s a distinct, high-pitch coil whine that’s enough to drive you mad. Dell has recognized about the issue in the XPS series laptops since at least 2012 (by my research). They haven’t fixed it. Look elsewhere for a quality PC, this is too most of a headache.

In this time of iPads and netbooks, I had forgotten that a movable device may be fast. I never realized just how fast although. I am using this side-by-side with my Lenovo x230, also equipped with an i7 processor and SSD. Both systems have full installations of Office 2013. The Dell, no surprise, looks lots faster One nice feature is the laptop is provided free of any adware, bloatware, or another annoying “free” stuff that’s typically included with laptops these days. It means I do not have to run CCleaner right out of the box. The laptop comes with Windows 8. 1 installed. There’s a 10-minute procedure where it leads you through connecting to your wireless network and capturing some basic information. After that, you are good to go. Throughout those 10 minutes you also learn your buy will include a free upgrade to Windows 10. For this laptop it’ll happen automatically towards the end of July. I can not wait, can you? The battery lasts for about 4-1/2 hour of uninterrupted use. That is with me using it in balanced, not power saver, mode. The touch screen is responsive if I am using it as a shortcut for manipulating windows. But, the performance is a bit disappointing for sketching or hand-written text entry. My main concerns were the “small” SSD and big size in general. As I am using it, the SSD is less and less of an issue. There are lots of storage alternatives available like Microsoft’s OneDrive, other cloud-established alternatives, and high capacity thumb and SD storage devices (if it ever comes to that). What I get in exchange for what is so far nothing, is a laptop that’s lighter, faster, and with longer battery & 8203;life.
