Now in Rose Gold. The Kaby Lake update adds little to an already excellent XPS 13 experience. Users will only see marginal benefits in both performance and battery life when compared to the outgoing Skylake XPS 13.

Trusted has now reviewed three of Dell’s InfinityEdge XPS 13s and the recipe hasn’t changed a lot, although the base price for these models has risen from around £800 to £999. While a big step up, that isn’t completely out of line with the rest of the industry, where premium component pricing has taken a big upswing.

Dell’s XPS 13 9360 – A View from the InfinityEdge

Dell’s new XPS 13 highlights why the company is prospering while its competitors struggle. Creating solutions that appeal to both professionals and consumers, and continually upgrading them with new technological innovations has resulted in a portfolio that delivers exceptional customer satisfaction and commercial success. Dell’s new XPS 13 is clearly the best examples of this particular line but the view ahead from the InfinityEdge looks remarkably clear and expansive.

Source: PC World English
One of the great things about Linux is that you can run it on old hardware. But that doesn’t mean Linux users can’t have great new PCs too. The Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition is a fantastic little PC that is a joy to work on, and is designed to run Linux. If you’ve wanted a Linux laptop but can’t stand fighting with unsupported hardware, the XPS 13 is the best (dare I say, only?) Linux laptop you’ll find from a mainstream manufacturer.

90% Dell XPS 13 9360 review (late 2016): Updated with the latest Intel CPU, the XPS 13 is still the king of ultraportable laptops
Source: PC Advisor English
The Dell XPS 13 is an excellent ultraportable laptop, the best 13-inch Windows model going for many. Dell hasn’t aimed for a single superlative feature, a potential gimmick. Its footprint is smaller than the competition, but it’s thicker. Its screen resolution is excellent, but display colour is normal rather than super-saturated. There’s also a mix of old and new connections, and a combo of a large battery and smart power management means the Dell XPS 13 lasts significantly longer than most a lot of the time. The balance is just right - we'd spend our own money on it.

Dell XPS 13 (9360, Late 2016) review – the best just got better
Source: Laptop Media English
Do we still recommend the refreshed XPS 13? Sure we do. In fact, we still think this is one of the best premium laptops out there as long as you can afford it. If not, you won’t make a mistake getting the previous Skylake generation – the difference isn’t that noticeable. Or you can simply opt for the Lenovo Yoga 910 which is also a great alternative if you are looking for a more versatile product and a little bit of extra endurance during the day.

On the new Core i7 model, under lighter workloads that 2-hour battery shortfall has been completely eliminated — and that’s despite still having that same super high-res display. You can surf the web or watch movies for nearly 7 hours, so choosing the faster model doesn’t come with the runtime trade-off that it used to.

Dell XPS 13 Review: Kaby Lake Makes A Fantastic 13-Inch Laptop Even Better
Source: Hot Hardware English
Our experiential view of Dell's latest XPS 13 (model 9360) was exceptional. This new Dell notebook consistently exhibited class-leading performance in the ultrabook category and does so, by the way, very quietly. Very few times during benchmark testing did the machine's fans actually spin up to audible levels and when they did, the XPS 13 maintained a very low acoustic profile. Couple its great performance with its exceptional battery life and quiet demeanor, and we began to realize that the new XPS 13 is a highly-tuned, well-refined machine.

The HP Spectre is probably the next best thing, if Dell’s offering isn’t quite doing it for you. The Spectre x360, specifically, provides a 360-degree hinge, while the Dell’s touchscreen only leans back so far. Otherwise, it’s easy to see the XPS 13 is the laptop of choice for most users.

80% Dell XPS 13 Touch (2016 Rose Gold Edition)
Source: PC Mag English
The Rose Gold Edition of the Dell XPS 13 addresses most of the issues we had with the regular Gold Edition, and comes in costing $100 less. It has a top-notch screen, a compact body, premium construction, upscale aesthetics, 11 hours of battery life, a powerful processor, and ports supporting both USB 3.0 Type-A and the latest USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 technology. While it is a bit thicker than the Asus ZenBook 3 and the newest Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch, it has a higher-resolution screen than both, as well as better connectivity, which you'll need as long as USB 3.0 remains the prevalent standard (probably for another half-dozen years or so).

Comment

Model:

Of late, there seem to be more and more offerings of laptops striving to be borderless. It is easy to be blown away with displays which are not interrupted visually by frames. The same is true with Dell’s XPS 13. Dell claims that it is “the smallest 13-inch on the planet with the world’s first InfinityEdge display. It is remarkable how Dell managed to squeeze in a 13-inch display within what is normally a 11-inch frame. Its bezel measures at 0.5mm, thereby making the display almost frameless. Its dimensions measure at 15mm x 304mm x 200mm and weighs only 2.7 pounds. Essentially, this is the same body as the previous version of the XPS 13 with some minor changes on the inside.

What is even more impressive is the UltraSharp QHD display with a resolution of 3200 x 1800. This boosts visuals up to 5.7 million pixels (276 ppi). Details appear in stunning clarity on its IGZO IPS panel as it allows a wide viewing angle of up to 170°. Usage outdoors is not an issue with its 400 nit brightness. By adding the touch option, users may tap, swipe and pinch their way around the screen. The Corning Gorilla Glass coating makes the display even more scratch resistant. Perfomance-wise, the XPS 13 is fully loaded just like the previous versions. It is now powered by the newer 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor. This comes with 8GB memory, and a 256GB SSD hard drive. The palm rest stays cool even after prolonged use as it is made of carbon fibre. 

This machine is very well connected (literally) as is fitted with 2 USB 3.0 (1 with PowerShare), 1 SD card reader, 1 headset jack, 1 noble lock slot, 1 Thunderbolt 3 which supports Power in/charging, PowerShare, Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps bi-directional), USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps), VGA, HDMI and ethernet via Dell Adapter (sold separately). The docking solution which is offered as an option is top-notched as it features single-cable connections for power, ethernet, audio and video. Users may also opt for Killer Wireless technology which maximizes bandwidth to provide optimal speeds. With the built-in Dell Data Protection and Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise, potential threats are held at bay and testing has shown Dell’s protection is significantly more effective against threats compared to traditional top antivirus solutions. Moreover, its battery is said to be able to last 22 hours of continual use when running productivity applications. However, users have reported that the machine shows a much shorter run time. 

Dell can’t be blamed though. Intel’s new processors seem to adjust their power consumption vigorously depending on the running application. It is harder for Windows to predict proper timing in these conditions. The optional Dell Power Companion grants users additional juice of 11 hours and 30 minutes. In all, the XPS is definitely a business laptop to look out for but it does come with a hefty price tag.

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
