Reviews for the Dell XPS 13 9300 i5 FHD

88.8% Dell XPS 13 9300 Laptop Review – Smaller, but slower CPU | Notebookcheck
Displays with 16:10 aspect ratios were mostly reserved for Apple laptops the last couple of years, but Dell now returns to this format with the brand-new XPS 13 9300. How does the entry-level version of the new XPS 13 9300 perform? Read our review below to find out.
90% Dell XPS 13 (2020) review: A new definition of perfection
Source: The Indian Express English Archive.org version
I really enjoyed using the XPS 13. It has a distinctive look yet it feels familiar. I think mobile workers, journalists, and frequent travelers will appreciate the XPS 13. If you want the thinnest and lightest Windows notebook with beautiful design and all-around performance, the Dell XPS 13 is your best option. But that experience comes at a significant cost, even more, premium than Apple’s new MacBook Air.

At Rs 1.44 lakh, the XPS 13 is a premium offering from Dell and will click with those who want the best of the best in their laptops. It has a sleek design, an impressive display and solid performance on all counts. The keyboard has been improved as has been the trackpad and there’s very little room for complaints with the Dell XPS 13. For a Windows user, the XPS 13 is one of the best laptops available in the market. Sure, the price might seem steep but if you are looking for quality then don’t look beyond the Dell XPS 13. It’s compact, powerful and does everything you want a laptop to do at seriously impressive levels.

Dell XPS 13 9300 Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English Archive.org version
Lisa Gade reviews the spring 2020 refresh of the Dell XPS 13, model 9300. This extremely compact Ultrabook has undergone a redesign, with an even smaller footprint despite a larger 13.4” display. That display is now 16:10 aspect ratio and is available in matte, FHD and 4K resolutions. The Dell runs Windows 10 on Intel 10th gen Ice Lake U series CPUs with up to Intel Iris Plus graphics. It has Killer WiFi 6, a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button, Thunderbolt 3, an M.2 NVMe SSD, up to 32GB RAM and is available in two colors.

The Dell XPS 13 for 2020 represents the perfecting of a formula that was so good that it caused other laptop makers to go back to the drawing board. The display is bigger and brighter, the keys are larger and comfier and you get more speed and hopefully more battery life to boot.

Dell XPS 13 9300, 2020 model – what to expect, vs XPS 13 7390
Source: Ultrabook Review English Archive.org version
The XPS 13s have been plagued by various quirks and issues over time and that’s why if you’ll go to Reddit, Youtube or the various forums you’ll see quite a few people complaining about their notebooks. It is, however, important to understand that the XPS 13 sells in greater numbers than most other thin-and-lights, that’s why its issues are more visible.

Dell XPS 13 (New 9300) hands-on review: Chasing perfection
Source: It Pro English Archive.org version
In truth, none of this year’s upgrades will revolutionise your working life, but they add up to a machine that is clearly superior: the tenth gen Intel Core processors are faster and contribute to (probably) better battery life; the keyboard and touchpad are that little bit larger; the screen ever so slightly nicer to use. Unless you can bag last year’s XPS 13 for a bargain price, we recommend you choose the 2020 edition.

Dell XPS 13 (2020) review: Hands-on
Source: Tech Advisor English Archive.org version
Both the 2018 and 2019 iterations of the XPS 13 were best-in-class, and on paper the 2020 model improves on almost every pain point, with a bigger screen, wider keyboard, and the latest Intel chips. We’d love to see a bigger battery - though that would in turn make the body bigger, so maybe not - but otherwise this is hard to fault.

Dell XPS 13 (2020) initial review: Laptop king banishes the bezel

Once again Dell has knocked it out of the park with the XPS 13. The diminishing bezel in this series' design is a standout feature that not only looks great, but makes for a smaller footprint product that's easier to carry about.

The Dell XPS 13 2020 looks to set a very high bar for laptops this year. It has admittedly seen minor improvements, making it pointless for XPS 13 2019 owners to upgrade, but the taller display, smaller bezel and larger keys still combine to make 2019’s best laptop even better.

The Dell XPS 13 2020 is still one of the laptops to beat, as it's one of the most premium Ultrabooks in the game. The world of laptops keeps getting more competitive though, and some of the more controversial aspects of the laptop may hold it back from retaining our number one slot: namely the underpowered entry-level model and the bottom-mounted speakers.

Dell XPS 13 (2020) hands-on review: The laptop perfected
Source: Tom's Guide English Archive.org version
The Dell XPS 13 for 2020 represents the perfecting of a formula that was so good that it caused other laptop makers to go back to the drawing board. The display is bigger and brighter, the keys are larger and comfier and you get more speed and hopefully more battery life to boot. I wish Dell would shake things up by offering more color options, and $999 is a lot to pay for a starting configuration with a Core i3 CPU. But overall the Dell XPS 13 looks like it could be the laptop to beat. Stay tuned for our full rated review.

Smaller, sleeker and sporting the tiniest bezels on all sides, the new Dell XPS 13 shows that Dell still knows how to push the envelope without going too far. The new laptop is an exercise in patient restraint, improving the notebook in a bunch of small ways that add up to a big leap for the system. We’re excited to put this new system to the test when it launches in February.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
