Reviews for the Dell XPS 13 9380 2019 FHD

Dell XPS 13 9380 ultrabook unboxing and first look
Source: Hitech Century English
For RM8,369, Dell has thrown in almost everything except the kitchen sink for their most powerful variant of the XPS 13 as you get a 13.3-inch InfinityEdge 4K UHD touch screen, an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8565U processor, 16GB RAM, Intel UHD Graphics 620 and a generously sized 512GB M.2 PCIE NVME SSD. These are the specifications available in our test unit which were impressive indeed. Stay tuned for the full review later! To check out the Dell XPS 13 9380, swing by Dell’s official website here.

Dell XPS 13 9380 review – high-level business notebook
Source: Laptop Media English
Additionally, the device has a great input device (its keyboard has a backlight), charges with a Type-C connector and utilizes a blazing fast fingerprint scanner. However, one of the most annoying things about it is the lack of non-Type-C USB connectors, meaning you’ll need an adapter for sure. Either way, if you need a fresh and cheaper option to this laptop, check the ZenBook 13 UX333 or the Lenovo Ideapad 730S.

Dell XPS 13 9380 2019 – what to expect, reviews, what’s changed from the XPS 9370
Source: Ultrabook Review English
These should cover most potential issues. Hopefully, the XPS 9380 won’t suffer from all of them, but coil whine, rattling fans, hot bottoms and performance hiccups, those are probably still on the menu. Luckily, given the popularity of this series, you will find a lot of support on Reddit and forums, Google is your friend. For now, this is what you should expect from the 2018 Dell XPS 13 9380. The comments section is open for your feedback and questions though, and stay tuned for a proper review in the months to come.

80% Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019) review: Running in place
Source: It Pro English
With no real improvements over its predecessor, Dell’s latest XPS 13 feels like more of a mid-generation revision than a genuine update. Not a disappointment, certainly, but you might as well go with last year’s model.

93% Dell XPS 13 review: A perfect ultraportable
Source: Engadget English
Dell’s XPS 13 is still one of the best Windows ultraportables around. Its design is better than ever, it has fantastically bright Dolby Vision HDR screens and Dell has finally returned the webcam to the proper position. There aren’t many downsides -- unless you’re looking for a bit of gaming performance.

90% Dell XPS 13 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Dell XPS 13 was already one of the best ultrabooks you can buy, and with slight tweaks it’s only got better in 2019. The webcam has been shifted to its traditional place, the upgrade to a Whiskey Lake processor has improved performance and battery life and apparent calibrations to the display has widened its sRGB colour gamut coverage.

It's nearly impossible to find anything to dislike about this 13-inch slim powerhouse, at least in the pricey high-end configuration tested here.

85% Dell XPS 13 (2019) review: XPS notebook perfected?
Source: Hardware Zone English
So in short, the latest XPS 13 is faster, better designed, has a longer battery, and is cheaper too. If that’s not progress, I don’t know what is. As such, the new Dell XPS 13 is an easy recommendation if your priority is for a compact and powerful ultraportable in a traditional notebook form factor.

The Dell XPS 13 finally solves its nose-cam problem
Source: CNet English
I had to look long and hard to find anything I didn't like about the 2019 Dell XPS 13. Pressed to come up with a list, I'd say the woven glass fiber palm rest doesn't look or feel as high-end as it should. The white backlight shining through white keys (on the white and rose gold versions) sometimes makes it harder to see the keys, not easier. And in order to get a touchscreen model, you have to trade up to a 4K display, which is more expensive and not as battery-friendly.

The Dell XPS 13 serves up a new color, a powerful Intel Whiskey Lake processor, a 4K display (and ditches the ridiculous "nosecam") - all in a slim, lightweight chassis.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620. 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.  
8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
13.3":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
1.226 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products.

In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.
87.44%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
