You say this is your favorite ultrabook but then spend the next 8 minutes trashing it and saying how it is merely “ok.”

Takes the piss to clean. That carbon surface stuff is a mad fingerprint magnet. Great PC, I have an i7 and it is fantastic.

AudioFag says:

I would love to see alienware release this laptop with the 13″ oled display and the 4x pcie slot for the graphics amplifier. This sleek dell now mimics a lot of the older alienware 13r2 8344

andyatuvic says:

The webcam has been in the same position for the past few years. Get it right buddy.

leftplayer says:

Is it just me who hates the touchpad on this machine? I returned a XPS 15 because I thought it was faulty, now got this exact same model, XPS 13, and the touchpad is horrible (non responsive to click, pointer moves erratically or doesn’t move… etc)

Who uses webcam anymore anyway. It’s 2017 people, get over it. Best ultra book by far.

Göray Görgülü says:

I have used XPS 13 for the last the two years. Great machine, performs really well. Display is very sharp and great for the regular user. Color reproduction is way off though. There were two main issues with this laptop where otherwise would be a perfect unit for me (webcam I don’t care about). For long sessions of productivity work, the keyboard is too cramped and the keys flat out a little too easy and are mushy. It is is the weak part of this machine. Also the 13.3″ screen is a little too small for long sessions. Recently replaced it with YOGA 920. 14″ screen, a great keyboard, faster internals for the most part, plus 360 deg rotation and pen support. So far so good! I actually didn’t think it could replace the XPS so easy and smooth. That’s how much I liked the XPS.

Did he just mispronounce MUSHY?

Salty Mac says:

anyone who says 1600×1900, even by mistake, is useless to me as a computer reviewer

Aiden Do says:

CAn I charge the laptop with Apple USB-C Charger? the 87W one? My laptop is XPS 15

Donny de Olim says:

Is the USB-C a Thunderbolt 3 port? Can I connect an external GPU thought it?

Rowell V says:

wow, first time i watched one of your videos. you are so freaking handsome.

Hussein Bazzi says:

Open it with 2 hands, don’t be lazy. You don’t want the screen to wobble when you use the touchscreen

WakingCobain says:

Only marketing retards could have called it an infinity bezel less display, when it actually has bezels. And guess what. It also ends.

proxynar says:

Guys, what is this game please??

Blaž Bohinc says:

This laptop has a hard to open hinge because of the touch display, you shit. It’s made that way by design. FFS

Simo Cmo says:

This Review Was Good.

NegativeEffect says:

laptops should be left alone with treating them like they have to be so light and so portable as tablets or mobil phones are. Laptop should look more like a desktop device. laptops are meant to be light and regularly portable. Portable doesn’t mean using it on foot. That’s understandable but laptops don’t have to be super super light. Who really demands to use a full keyboard laptop on foot? Maybe I don’t just get it. if you want to get a tight device that really gets the job done stay away from these kind of toys.

Igor Khomenko says:

The ‘carbon fiber’ is the stupidest idea ever – all the surface is now fingerprinty and smudgy. It feels so insecure to touch it and I wonder how soon this wanna-be carbon will peel off. Interesting how much did they save by not having ANY gap whatsoever to open the laptop. So the screen sits flush flat to the body and you like an idiot start praying your nails to start it open. Why people, why? What level of IQ you gotta have to not realize this? Other than that this thingie is super awesome. I don’t know why they all say that keyboard is so so and the track pad is average – I find them very responsive and welcoming. They would eat the latest mac book pro for breakfast – and I use both on a daily basis. That piece of overheated aluminum cr@p feels and sounds like a piece of cheap wood, not to mention that the huge track-pad is just super annoying.

Nicolas Montiel says:

I have the 2017 version and yes, it is actually a pain to open this laptop. Forget that you have to use 2 hands, it doesn’t have anywhere to actually lift it and getting between the screen and the keyboard isn’t as simple as it should be. That aside, it is a fantastic laptop! Just wish the keyboard was like the one on hp computers. Those are perfect!
