Reviews for the Dell XPS 13 9340 Core Ultra 7

86.5% Dell XPS 13 9340 laptop review - The compact subnotebook with long runtimes and quite a few flaws | Notebookcheck
Dell has created the new XPS 13 out of its old XPS 13 Plus and—the same as with its larger siblings—this means it has an unconventional keyboard and an annoying touchbar. The new Core Ultra processor from Intel delivers decent everyday performance, however, its IPS display is a lot dimmer than advertized.
I tested Dell's XPS 13 and its eye-catching design is its second best feature
Source: English
Despite these issues, I still recommend the 2024 XPS 13. It performs very well, has a solid battery life, a hi-res display, and a unique, eye-catching design. It's important to mention the old XPS 13 Plus is no longer available on Dell's website at the time of this writing, so if you're looking for a laptop that looks the same (but performs better) this is the machine for you. Prices start at $1,299 for the base model. However, to get the most out of it, you'll want to opt for better configurations, which increases the final cost. As stated earlier, go for the Quad HD Plus display with the 120Hz refresh rate.

Dell XPS 13 9340 review – Striking Balance Between Style, Performance, and Battery Life
Source: Laptop Media English
The Dell XPS 13 9340 is a great-looking compact device with a solid metal build. Its backlit keyboard with a capacitive top-row touch panel is suitable for long hours of typing. The base has a glass layer that feels premium. Of course, this contributes to the high price of the laptop. The comfort under loud is good – the fans aren’t too loud even when the CPU is loaded at max. At the same time, the base isn’t scorching hot to the touch. This machine relies on Meteor Lake CPU variants with a 28W base power. Our notebook has the optional Core Ultra 7 155H. Its clocks in long loads are acceptable given how thin this machine is. Unfortunately, the processor temperature is always around the 96°C – 100°C mark. The upgradability is almost non-existent – you can only change the SSD, that’s all.

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.
