90% Dell XPS 13 (Model 9310, 4K) review

A beautiful design, powerful performance, a gorgeous display –– there’s a reason the Dell XPS 13 remains a perennial favorite at Laptop Mag. The notebook gives consumers what they want in a system that performs as well as it looks. For $1,861, you get a lightweight beauty with a great super high-res display, comfortable keyboard and a pair of surprisingly loud speakers. Plus, you get the power of one of Intel’s powerful 11th Gen Core i7 processors and the company’s new Iris Xe Graphics GPU, which provides enough graphical oomph to play a solid array of games on lower settings at 1080p.

100% Dell XPS 13 laptop review | Intel 11th Gen version | Model 9310
Source: Bit-Tech English
There are many SKUs of the XPS 13 model 9310, ranging from lowly, Core i3 CPUs to 4.8GHz i7 Intel processors. The range includes 4K touch screens and up to 2TB storage and prices start at $2,499. Our test unit is listed at $2,999 which is reasonable - but it's currently on sale for $2,399 which makes it more attractive. It's nonetheless worth checking out Dynabook's competitor at $2,099 which also doubles as a tablet.

80% Dell XPS 13 9310 (2020) review: Undermined by Intel
Source: It Pro English
Everything about the latest XPS 13 feels top-shelf, from the slimline chassis to the stunning display. Taken in isolation, it would be a fantastic machine, but the disparity between Intel and AMD is simply too big to overlook. We’ll say it again: AMD-based laptops offer double the performance for half the price. While Dell and Intel have had a fruitful partnership for many years, it’s hard not to feel like it’s starting to hold Dell back. That doesn’t make the XPS 13 a bad laptop, it’s still virtually unrivalled in terms of build quality and overall appeal, but it does rob it of an award and makes us wonder what a Ryzen-powered XPS could do.

The New Dell XPS 13 2-In-1 Is As Powerful And Sleek As Ever
Source: English
There’s a reason the Dell XPS 13 is so popular. Its portability is second to none, especially when paired with top-tier performance. If you don’t plan on typing long essays on it, it’s a fantastic machine that can go anywhere without a second thought, especially with its solid 9 hours of battery life. It’s easily one of the best MacBook Pro competitors (in a MacBook Air-size body) I’ve seen on the Windows side of things, with that level of sleek design.
