DELL XPS 13 REVIEW

Image result for dell xps 13

After some hickups Dell finally came up with something to look for. The latest and one of the finest Dell XPS 13 recently arrived, and it’s frankly already been one of the favorite laptop compared to last two years.
This time coming equipped with the latest, 7th generation (Kaby Lake) Intel processors behind that same eye-dropping display and punchy keyboard we’ve come to enjoy typing on – now all within an optional rose gold frame – the new XPS 13 has wowed us all over again.
And, much of that isn’t thanks to crazy innovations or fresh additions, but a few key refinements that help the XPS 13 stand out amongst a sea of laptops that are perhaps trying to change a bit too quickly. The XPS 13 is a tortoise surrounded by hares … only it’s got a rocket strapped to its back.
                    

Price and availability
Available now through its website and several retailers, Dell begins the bidding for the standard XPS 13 at $799 (£999, AU$1,899) to start. In the US, that gets you a Kaby Lake, dual-core Intel Core i3 processor with Intel HD Graphics 620, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of solid-state storage behind an FHD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels), non-touch InfinityEdge display. (The UK and Australian versions come starting with an Intel Core i5.)
If you want the touchscreen at QHD+ (3,200 x 1,800) resolution – and the two screen features only come as a pair – you’ll need to cough up at least $1,299 (£1,249, AU$2,499). That also nets you a dual-core Intel Core i5 chip, but sadly doesn’t up the storage or RAM capacity. Of course, you can choose to upgrade both of those components for extra cash.

Weight-wise, the XPS 13 is a totable 2.7 pounds (1.2kg). It's something you could toss in a bag between classes or take with you on your next business trip and barely notice it's there. (That said, it's probably for the best if you cover your new investment with a case just to be safe.)
The screen itself is Dell's new InfinityEdge Display. Images go nearly to the edge of the screen with only a thin strip of plastic separating the glass from the edge. The distance separating the two, for the record, is a measly 5.2mm.

                                             


ONE HELL OF A SEXY LADY

She has totally removed the mask of her ancestors & joined the league of divas.
The Dell XPS 13 may have been spruced up with a Rose Gold finish and a more power-savvy Kaby Lake processor late last year, but the developments haven’t stopped there. In fact, there are several new configuration options being marketed by Dell, most notably a Windows Hello-ready fingerprint scanner add-on that costs only 25 bucks more.
The other new variant of the vanilla Dell XPS 13 is the Developer Edition, which sports the Ubuntu 14.04 flavor of Linux instead of Windows 10. This same version came late last year, too, but is equipped with an Intel 6th-generation Skylake processor as opposed to the Kaby Lake rendition of this year.
There’s also the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, which bears a tad higher starting cost and a mobile, Y-series processor, but also boasts a 360-degree hinge. The outward design otherwise remains largely intact, complete with the same keyboard, trackpad and minimalist appearance of the Dell XPS 13 proper. The main difference is battery life, which looks to be a little shorter here.
With awesome features, sleek finish & most importantly being a budget laptop DELL XPS 13 has been a hotcake in market.its selling at a good pace, believe me it's a killer.

Design
Frankly, there isn’t a ton to be said of the XPS 13’s design this time around, as very little, if anything, has changed. You still have the 13.3-inch display as sharp as QHD+ (3,200 x 1,800 pixels) with optional touch controls squeezed inside an 11-inch-wide frame. 
And, you still have the gorgeous, machined aluminum lid and base that beset a comfy, carbon fiber keyboard deck coated in soft-touch paint. Only this time, the lid and base come in rose gold – the salmon shade that’s all the rage in tech products these days – as well as the traditional silver option.
The machine somehow measures even thinner than the previous generation, though only by a hair: 0.33 inches (9mm) at its thinnest point to 0.6 inches (15mm) at its thickest. For those keeping score, the previous model came in at two hundredths of an inch thicker at the nose.
Dell has also reduced the weight of its leading laptop, but by such a small degree it would be impossible to notice: from 2.93 pounds (1.32kg) to now just 2.9 pounds (1.29kg) even for the touchscreen model. Short of a major breakthrough in the materials used to construct the XPS 13, we’re likely looking at the thinnest and lightest Ultrabook from Dell for a while. 

VERDICT


As discussed earlier, with minimal flaws and maximum efficiency this charming lady has been my choice.I would personally recommend it to anyone looking to buy not just a laptop, but the best one.
