Dell XPS 13 review (2015): Meet the world's smallest 13-inch laptop

Dell XPS 13 review 2015 Meet the world s smallest 13 inch laptop


There's a reason the XPS 13 was a Best of CES finalist: It's not only one of the top laptops we saw at the show, but also one of the finest PCs we're likely to see for months to come. If you're in the market for a new Windows laptop -- something small and light with fast performance and a great screen -- this should absolutely be on your short list. There are other fine choices too, as I've laid out in the previous section, but the XPS 13 is a winner its own right, with very few flaws to speak of. The only things I'd caution you of are the touchpad (it needs a little work) and the battery life, which is merely average, at least on the touch edition. Speaking of, it's on the pricey side if you do indeed configure it with a touchscreen. Even then, though, the $1,300 asking price is worth it.

Wow. It's beautiful. It might make me consider giving up my Apple.

Amazing that $1300 is considered pricey. Used to be you couldn't get a good laptop that cheap.

It compares favorably with the top-end chromebook.
