Rated 4 out of5 by fromNice little machineLight as a feather and nice lit key board, I like it very much, still figuring out the ins an outs of it. Do wish it had a little bigger hard drive but I'm happy.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromUpdate to: Great Ultrabook for PortabilityI couldn't edit my previous review so am adding a new one to make 2 points:1. almost a year later the laptop continues to run absolutely phenomenally - basically the perfect ultrabook.2. I've also been connecting this to my 40" Samsung HDTV using a mini DP to HDMI adapter and using this for graphics-intensive tasks such as streaming videos and playing games from a just a few years ago like Assassin's Creed 2, Batman Arkham Asylum, etc and they run just great. Obviously I don't try running the latest games on it, but anything from just 3-4 yrs ago should be great.A truly excellent Ultrabook. If you want better graphics to run the latest games, then you'll have to go with a gaming laptop.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromVery quick and lightI'm very happy with this laptop. It starts fast and runs all programs with no hesitation. No junk ware was preloaded, so you get a clean machine. The touch screen monitor is striking with high resolution and realistic colors. When compared to other monitors side-by-side, the colors look great. And at 3 lbs, this is easy to carry around. Works great, I've had no issues with it.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromI love this laptopI hesitated on this laptop because it only had 3 to 4 stars for reviews on multiple sites. If you are looking for a gaming laptop, look elsewhere. But, if you are looking for a great mobile business laptop, this is it. I have been in IT for almost 30 years and I am extremely picky about the computers I use. I have been very critical of Dell because of their inability to keep up with other manufacturers and the technology available to them. I don't understand why any computer maker would still offer anything with less than a 1080p display in today's market. Dell continues to do this with their business class Latitude and home class Inspiron series. However, Dell is the standard at our company and we have buy them. I own an XPS 12 and XPS 15. You pay for the premium, but, it is worth it. I recently bought the XPS 13 and I was not disappointed. The keyboard is great, touchpad is close to MacBook Pro quality and usability, and the display is amazing. Turn off the adaptive display setting to get the best quality and brightness. It feels lighter and smaller than my XPS 12. It stays cool and quiet with all day use. I had it unplugged earlier to see what the estimated battery life would be with email and web browsing - 11 hours - with the display at 40%. Microsoftstore.com has the best price over others for this model. If you are looking for a small, light, great performer, this is it. Don't waste the extra money on the systems with 3k or 4k displays. It is not worth the extra 200-300 dollars and you'll end up changing the resolution to match a 1080p.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromThe perfect laptop for meI have been searching for a laptop that could replace my current laptop as well as tablet. That meant it had to be light weight, but still able to do heavy lifting on the processor side. I had tried the Lenovo Flex 14 but the battery wasn't sufficient and there were issues with the built-in wifi. That's when I decided to try this laptop out.This laptop hits all of the sweet spots for me. The factors that made it perfect for meare, in no particular order: lightweight (3 lbs), i7 processor, backlit keyboard, 8 GB RAM, SSD, touch screen, excellent battery and wifi. It's small enough to easily carry but large enough to view my queries and results without issue. So far my use has been limited to work, but I will be trying it out with light gaming next, just to see how it performs. Everything just works, it boots up in seconds, turns off quickly and I don't have to worry about the battery dying in the middle of a presentation.There are a couple of issues that aren't show-stoppers but that the would-be buyer should be aware of. This has a display port, not an HDMI output, so it's visual output only. Doesn't impact me but thought I would point it out. Also, Dell seems to have an issue with the wifi sometimes locking up. It's not all the time, and mainly seems to be an issue if it was plugged in to the charger, then unplugged while it's on sleep mode. The simple resolution is to right click on the lower left corner of the screen, choose Device Manager and look at network adapters. When it is being problematic, you'll see the wireless adapter is flagged. Disable then re-enable it and the problem is solved. You can also reboot it. Again, not a big impact to me since it can easily be avoided but the potential buyer should be aware of it.Usage- I take this to work with me every day. I have a PC and laptop at work, but wanted something lightweight that I could take to meetings for note-taking, but still run queries while I was in the meeting. It also follows me to dinner and when travelling. This laptop easily transitions to an entertainment source (I use the News Bento app for easy viewing of all my news sources) and YouTube or the occasional movie are easily viewed.Finally, location, location, location. Dell has this same laptop for around $1,600 on their website. I purchased it from the Microsoft store for $400 less and no bloatware. Love it!

Rated 2 out of5 by fromdecent ultrabook with fatal flawThis laptop has a great build quality, wifi was rock stable for me, keyboard was good enough but not perfect, if you didn't hit the keys near center they had a funny feel to them. Battery life is excellent. All in all a good deal for a 13 inch laptop.The fatal flaw that I spent hours trying to get around was that if the laptop was not plugged in the keyboard action was sluggish. Once you plugged it in you could unplug it and it was fine until it went to sleep or you shut it down on battery. Then you could lag it by just typing fast depending on the application. The quickest way I could duplicate it was to hold down the arrow key in control panel. The real world place it really bothered me was in remote desktop. I tried everything to fix it from driver updates, bios updates, advanced power settings, you name it. I even re-installed Win 8.1 from scratch. The only thing that would make it work was to use the MS generic video driver. The unfortunate thing about the MS driver is that it forces the video resolution to max. I found other people on the net that have had the same problem and had even had the motherboard and keyboard replaced with no resolution. I believe that this is a BIOS/firmware issue that maybe fixed in the future. I really didn't want to send this back, but I did.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromNot a good laptop; reviewers highly overrated itOver the course of about six months I researched PC laptops in the 13 inch to 14 inch category. I waited until I found one that had consistently good reviews. I wanted a good keyboard to type on, a touchpad that wasn't finicky, and decent computing power for simple typing, browsing, and minimal spreadsheet computation. Reviewers loved this laptop. I tried it out at a store and found the keyboard a little small, but knew I could adjust to it. I bought it.This laptop is weak. The processor works hard when I have only Word and a browser with a few tabs open. I can hear it humming often and I'm not putting it to work hard at all. There is also a hum from the keyboard backlight -- no idea why.The touchpad is finicky. From time to time I'll be typing and it will register the slightest graze of my palm as a command.I'll also mention the touchscreen. In my opinion, it's more of a pain than a convenience. I only use it when reading PDFs, but that's only because (1) the touchpad is bad and (2) PDF readers have terrible on-screen layouts and options when the program recognizes you are using a touchscreen. Also, when you want to adjust the angle of the screen and your finger just narrowly touches the edge of the display, it could easily mess with the program you're working in. Word documents close on me all the time when I'm simply trying to lay my screen back a little. I don't think touch laptops are very useful and won't every buy one again. I'm not looking for a tablet; I'm looking for something to produce work on.As touch is unimportant for a laptop IMO, I will also say that I wish I could have found a decent Windows 7 laptop for less than $1,400. Windows 8 has not impressed me. It consumes a lot of storage and, as I said, I never use the touch features. They seem a gimmick outside a tablet or phone.Finally, the typing has not been all it was hyped to be. I did get used to the slightly-smaller-than-I'm-used-to keyboard, but my typing speed on this machine is markedly slower than it is on any other I've owned. I previously owned a Macbook and wanted to go back to PC to take advantage of the keyboard shortcuts and to run programs in an operating system that better suits them, but I have to say, my Macbook was far, far, far, far, far superior to this machine in pretty much every respect. I regret not getting another one.
