I’ve been using a Dell XPS 13 (2015) as my daily driver for about a month and I’ve had the following impressions.
- The screen is fantastic! I opted for the 3200 x 1800 “InfinityEdge” touch display and could not be happier, text is tack sharp and colours are repoduced nicely.
- Wonderfully light. It’s only 1.26kgs so it’s hardly noticable when carrying it around - one of the main reasons I looked to get the XPS 13.
- Nothing outright bad about the XPS 13 I’ve found (so far!)
- The keyboard could do with having better tactile feedback, but not currently unplesant.
- Sadly only integrated graphics. It’s obviously a tradeoff but a little more performance would be desirable.
Admitedly I immediatly installed Windows 10 without checking for compatability, so the problems below only relate to software compatability on Windows 10 Technical Preview (Build 10122 and Build 10130)
- Intel SpeedStep
- I had problems with the CPU being stuck on 0.77GHz which obviously left it severely underpowered when doing any real work.
- This was fixed by updating the multiple drivers from Dell, the major one being updating the BIOS from A03 to A04
