Ladies and gentlemen, today I'm going to introduce Dell XPS 13 QHD, which is a 13.3-Inch Touchscreen laptop equipped with a 5th Generation Intel Core i5-5200U Processor (3M Cache, up to 2.7GHz), 8GB Dual Channel DDR3L-RS 1600Mhz (On Board), and 256 GB SSD Storage. It highlights a 13.3 Inch WQXGA+ LED-lit Infinity Touchscreen at 3200×1800 resolution, Intel HD Graphics 5500, 802.11 A/C WiFi, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 3-in-1 Media Card Reader, Stereo speakers + MaxxAudio, Backlit Keyboard, and 52 WHr, 4-Cell Battery (integrated). The laptop is preinstalled with Windows 10 operating system. Oh yeah, it has become a hot selling touchscreen laptop at Amazon (price as reviewed: $1,299.99 & FREE Shipping), more and more people are crazy about it, this is why I need to share it with you guys today.
The XPS 13 isn't just the smallest 13-inch laptop on the planet, it also has the world's first virtually borderless infinity display. Compared to the Apple MacBook Air 13, the XPS 13 is 23% smaller with the same size screen. You'll enjoy the speed, clarity and improved graphics with the new 5th Generation Intel Core processors. The XPS 13 boots and resumes in seconds thanks to a standard solid state drive and Intel Rapid Start Technology.
-Build Construction is phenomenal
-Trackpad hardware is good, but the software can sometimes ruin it.
-Battery life is decent when using an external monitor.
-Touchscreen is responsive.
-Small bezels mean small footprint, making it very portable.
-Minimal Bloatware (“Free” pre-installed games, etc.)
-Chrome just doesn't really work right. Flash is slow and scrolling is truly a nightmare.
-With a high res display there are some scaling issues.
-Connecting to an external monitor with different scaling is a nightmare. Windows 10 tries to choose the right scaling but it doesn't implement it correctly and you end up having to configure things yourself.
-Two finger scrolling in Chrome is awful. Install the Chrome add-on SmoothScroll to fix many of the issues. Luckily, this is a software problem not a hardware one. Scrolling is buttery smooth in Microsoft Edge and Windows apps, Google needs to add Microsoft Precision Trackpad support and then this will no longer be an issue.
-Trackpad can be a little jarring when you try to make small movements (not just in Chrome, everywhere).
-The high res display is a huge battery suck and reduces my usage time to 3 hours with the brightness low.
-Keyboard is decent but the travel is a little low. Not a huge negative, just not a plus. You can't expect much with a laptop this thin though.
Well, what do you think about the Dell XPS 13 QHD 13.3-Inch Touchscreen Laptop?
