88% Dell XPS 13-9343 Touchscreen Ultrabook Review | Notebookcheck
Refusal to compromise… You can’t have it all—or can you? Dell’s latest XPS 13 pushes the envelope in a number of different critical categories, but most notably portability: this is the smallest 13.3-inch notebook we’ve reviewed. Could we be witnessing the best ultraportable to date?

This is a laptop that’s beset by little niggles, none more disappointing than the infinity display, which is meant to be the star of the show. If all you want is a fast Windows laptop with a bright screen, and colour accuracy isn’t of prime importance, it’s a fantastic piece of kit. But it isn’t all that we were hoping for.

80% Dell XPS 13 review: an Infinity display that's out of this world?
Source: T3 English
A big, solid yes: high-resolution displays and compact bodies are the way laptops are heading. Tablets have been packing QHD+ displays for some time, and small portable productivity machines like the Dell XPS 13 mark an exciting shift in the industry for anyone who values a touchscreen and a full-size keyboard. Like many other laptops with pixel-packed displays, the Dell suffers from battery life drain, something that Intel's future generations of processors will look to address.

These knocks against the XPS 13 prevent us from awarding it a Kick Ass score, but quibbles aside, this is still a great Ultrabook. Its 12.9-second boot-up time is among the fastest we’ve ever seen, and the laptop is ultimately quite sleek, incredibly portable, and priced fairly. It’s not perfect, but it may very well be the best Ultrabook out there at the moment.

Overall, the Dell XPS 15 is a great example of a well-executed product with a lot of strengths and little to complain about. It's a top-shelf multimedia notebook with all the bells and whistles—and this latest iteration adds value with a 4K enhancement on the 3K display we raved about last year. We thoroughly enjoyed just about every aspect of the XPS 15, from its exquisite build quality to its solid overall performance.

Well-built, extremely compact and with an impressive battery life and beautiful display, the XPS 13 is a real success story. It'll be great for anyone wanting a truly transportable device, something that you can put in your bag and take with you anywhere. You will, however, always need a flat surface so that the cooling vents are kept clear.

Source: Trusted Reviews English
There is simply no finer thin and light laptop currently available for Windows users than the 2015 iteration of the Dell XPS 13. Aside from a slightly below par keyboard, on every other level it’s up there with the best ultrabooks and yet costs just £799 for the perfectly adequate entry level model. This vastly undercuts most of its Windows competitors and is even £50 cheaper than the 13in MacBook Air, while delivering a considerably better screen. It’s near perfection in portable computing.

Source: T Break English
The XPS 13 is like a new sports car that instantly becomes a classic. Dell has done an amazing job with the super-slim Aluminium with Carbon fibre design and the Infinity Display makes it hard to take your eyes off it. Add to that a pretty good performance and a reasonable battery life and you have a great Ultrabook- possibly the best I’ve seen running Windows. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a premium quality Windows ultrabook.

Dell's consumer notebooks have really impressed us over the last year, and the XPS 15 is further proof. It has a gorgeous design, an impressive 4K display, and more than enough performance for photo and video editors. My only concern is the amount of heat it kicks out, so you'll want to keep it on a desk, rather than on your lap.

The Dell XPS 13 is one of the slickest, most stylish ultrabooks we've seen in years. It's powerful, too, meaning you'll never be short on processing performance when you need it. The only reservation we have is caused by the screen, particularly the backlight leakage and Windows 8.1's poor way of scaling applications.

80% Dell XPS 13 9343 review: Dell is making laptops (and Windows) sexy again
Source: PC Advisor English
The Dell XPS 13 9343 stands as a shining beacon of hope in the world of Windows laptops, a compact laptop that outdoes the obvious competition in some key respects like screen quality and near-borderless display. Here is a 13.3-inch laptop that takes up little more space than an 11.6-inch model. Poor thermal management needs to be improved, while a non-touchscreen version could answer other outstanding issues.

The Dell XPS 13 is one of the finest-looking Windows laptops ever built. With a powerful processor, an SSD and a bag-friendly 1.3kg weight, it's a seriously impressive technical feat. We have reservations about the screen, though. The tiny bezels are gorgeous and screen performance alone is good, but the problems with scaling, backlight bleed and automatic brightness may prove irksome to some, even if they aren't deal breakers. As it stands, the XPS 13 is a standout premium Ultrabook.

The Dell XPS 13 Notebook Review - Broadwell and Battery Life
Source: PC Perspective English
Everyone wants to build the perfect laptop but that is nearly an impossible task given the range of preferences from consumers. Dell is closer to that pinnacle laptop than any I have previously used, combining a first-class design with high performance components, extended battery life and portability. Are there faster laptops you can buy? Yep. Are there thinner and lighter notebooks using Broadwell? Again, yes. Can you find longer battery life in a portable machine? Absolutely, especially in business lineups. But can anything else claim to meld all of these points together with the best trade-offs possible, as the Dell XPS 13 does? I don’t believe so, but I’d love to be proven wrong.

Overall, Dell has improved the XPS 13 in many ways over the previous model that we saw last year, with the design and screen being the major drawcards this time around. There are a couple of things that have gone backwards, such as the battery life and SSD write speed, but the sheer enjoyment of using this laptop can’t be denied by those negatives.

Asus ZenBook UX305 vs. Dell XPS 13: Thin, light and powerful
Source: Computerworld.com English
While the $700 Asus ZenBook UX305 is very capable and a good bargain, it can't measure up to the Dell XPS 13's performance and smaller size. True, the ZenBook has a better assortment of ports, twice as much RAM and storage space, and a three-year warranty, but it has nothing that can compare to the Dell's more than 11-hour battery life.

To tell the story of Dell’s XPS 13 is to relate a story of what might have been. It’s a stunning design, of that there’s no denying: it’s attractive, beautifully built and practical, and Dell has squeezed into this glamorous chassis a 13in laptop that’s closer to most 11in portables in overall dimensions.

Dell XPS 13 (9343, 2015 Broadwell) review – Dell proved that luxurious design isn’t just an Apple thing
Source: Laptop Media English
The new XPS 13 from Dell is a truly astonishing device with minimal design flaws, whatsoever. It has a sleek and elegant aluminum chassis with carbon fiber inner frame making it really durable and light at the same time. Also, the display has really thin bezels making it even more compact, while the keyboard remains big enough for comfortable use. The keys are big enough and you will barely see the difference from a full-sized one. The touchpad also has a great design with only one drawback – we’ve noticed some unresponsiveness when using two-finger gestures, like scrolling for example.

The Dell XPS would be remarkable enough if its only unusual feature were its compact size and tiny screen bezels. But as one of the first laptops with a Broadwell U series processor it also offers strong performance for most tasks, passable performance for light gaming, and reasonably long battery life (even if the laptop doesn’t come close to the extraordinarily-long battery life Dell had promised).

This version of the Dell XPS 13, one of the standout products at the 2015 International CES, costs less and runs for much longer on a single battery charge when compared which the premium configuration we originally tested. That makes it sound like a clear-cut winner, but there are a few important caveats.

As much as I like the MacBook Air, its design has been surpassed by the XPS 13. It's smaller and lighter, and lasts nearly as long on a charge. Having tested both the $1,399 quad-HD touch-screen XPS 13 and the $899, nontouch 1080p version, I prefer the latter. As someone who mainly uses desktop mode in Windows 8.1, I'll gladly sacrifice the touch screen for 4 additional hours of battery life.

When Dell announced their latest XPS 13 ultrabook, they wanted to make sure that people knew that it was a very compact system. Looking for a compact laptop the size of many 11-inch models but featuring a 13-inch display? If so, Dell's new XPS 13 is a laptop you should seriously take a look at. Just be warned that the smaller size does come with a few drawbacks as well.

After trying to wrangle cross-platform battery testing and seeing how many variables can go into the tests, I've decided that the best we can say is battery life on X platform is better for Y task. So, I can say quite comfortably that playing 1080p MKV files using VLC, the XPS 13 gives you better battery life.

If you’re in the market for a Windows laptop, the XPS 13 should be at the top of your list. But if you’re not tied to a particular operating system, Apple is expected to refresh its MacBook Air line soon, so you may want to wait a bit and see what the company has to announce.

80% Dell XPS 13 2015 (9343 Broadwell) review – I’m keeping it!
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Dell did a great job with the XPS 13 9343. They created a compact and light laptop with a 13 inch display, fast hardware, good keyboard/trackpad and long battery life, and on top of all these, a laptop with very little flaws. On the other hand, the proper priced options lack a touchscreen, so if you're not a big fan of matte panels, you're going to have to pay a lot for a model configured to your needs. In the end, when I draw the line, the reviewed Dell XPS 13 model is a good buy. For me is a lighter, smaller, faster and longer lasting computer than my old ThinkPad. I’m loosing on ports and typing experience, but I’m gaining plenty, so I’m happy to make the switch. For everyone else, I believe the XPS 13 can be a solid option if you need a compact, well built and fast computer for everyday activities. It’s not without rivals, and I’m looking here and the Acer Aspire S7-393 and even the Core M Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro and Asus Zenbook UX305, plus the other devices that will be released in the future, including that rumored 12 inch Macbook Air. But it should face them all head-high.

Dell XPS 13

In our opinion, the new 2015 Dell XPS 13 is the notebook to beat currently, for 13-inch machines. It's quite frankly as near "perfect" a design as we've ever seen in an utlralight notebook. Though its smaller 11.9-inch form factor and keyboard area may take some getting used to for those with larger hands that like a roomier typing deck, it's an easy learning curve worth making an effort for, without question.

In the end, I honestly have few complaints beyond the compressed keyboard and odd camera placement. The XPS 13 gives you good performance and great battery life in an incredibly compact and solid-feeling package. Even the pricing is almost reasonable. This model with its 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM and QHD+ touchscreen costs $1,400. If that’s too rich, Dell really takes a shot at Apple with its base model. That XPS 13 comes with a 1920x1080 non-touch IPS panel, 128GB SSD and 4GB of RAM. At $800, it packs components a magnitude better than the MacBook Air 11's, and it’s $100 cheaper.

When all is said and done, the latest Dell XPS 13 Touch's strengths are the brilliant touch screen, sturdy build quality, thin construction, and very solid performance from the fifth-generation Intel Core i5 processor. The Toshiba Kirabook 13 i7 Touch remains our top pick for high-end ultrabooks though, thanks to its longer battery life, two-year warranty (including tech support and Internet security), and bundled software. That said, the XPS 13 Touch should be on your short list if you're looking for a well-built, thin, light, and powerful touch-screen Windows laptop.

I was already enamored with the design of the older Dell XPS 13, but the Lilliputian 2015 version impressed me even more. For those who really value their space, this 13-inch notebook in an 11-inch package will free up enough space on your tray table for a drink and a bag of nuts. At $1,399 as configured, the XPS 13 sits in between the $1,299 EliteBook Folio 1020 and the $1,499 Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro.

Model: The XPS 13 is a brand new ultrabook that is set to be one of the best that the market has to offer, with a combination of its light weight, great battery life and new generation processing power. Weighing in at only 2.6 pounds (1.18 kg), the XPS 13 is light on the shoulders. The XPS 13 looks great with its aluminum casing and carbon fiber interior. The XPS 13 comes with a few configurations, the lower end builds uses a 13.3 inch FHD infinity display, while the higher end build comes with a 3200 x 1800 resolution utra sharp infinity display touchscreen and has a premium price tag to match.

The XPS 13 uses the new M class 5th Generation Intel processor series, which is a huge upgrade to the previous U series. Once again, different configurations range from an i5 or an i7 processor, and 4 or 8 GB of RAM. The only standard component is the Intel 5500 graphics card, which is great for work but subpar for gaming. The battery life is fantastic and expected to last around 12 hours with medium use, but it is shorter for the touchscreen model of the XPS 13.
