Reviews for the Dell XPS 13 Gold
Source: Mobile Tech Review Archive.org version
The Dell XPS 13 FHD is a solid pick for business and home Ultrabook buyers who don't want a touch screen. It uses top quality materials, is put together with excellent fit and finish and it's a good looking machine. The updated third generation Intel Core i5 and i7 CPUs deliver solid performance and the keyboard is still one of our favorites (Lenovo and Dell fight for top position).
