        I got an XPS two years ago and could not be more disappointed. I would never recommend it to anyone.

          @Chisangu Matome Quality issues. First the wifi card randomly stopped being detected by the system and then the battery just stopped working entirely.

        you seem to have a partiality for the XPS, line and overlook the crappy keyboard. saying you will get used to it, it is low travel and feels awful for those of us who do a lot of typing, I am surprised you are not more critical

                Wow a 13" screen that weighs about the same as an LG gram with a 17" screen. If LG made a 13" gram you'd have to tape it to your desk so it wouldn't float away. Pity Dell still lines their laptops with lead.

                  Very incomplete review. Battery life, Max RAM and SSD size you can get? How does it perform with linux? Spent too much time on color and texture not enough on substance.

                    AVOID THE HEADACHE. I paid over $2500 for the works! Perfect, tiny, touch screen to be gamer ding dong ready. After 2 years, this thing is burnt up. Keyboard warped, bluetooth and wifi barely stays awake, and oh yeah, the BATTERY is pretty much DEAD! it has a 10% life span.So after I unplug it, it lasts about 5 mins. Yeah, and this seems to be a normal occurrence after I researched the issues. If you need to change the battery, supposedly its connected to audio and many ppl lose or have issues with audio after a battery change. It comes with NO fan. And if you sit it on a flat surface, the computer can't breath really. Yep, forgot to add that the plug tip keeps bending. I'm on my 2nd cable. The ports are loose. Man, just save yourselves the headache. Avoid getting this at any cost. It was fun while it lasted but 2 years and $2500. I could have simply thrown that money out of a moving car window for better results.

                        Can you give us an update when your ac adapter breaks? I've had two Dell ac adapters break. The last one only lasted six months.

                            Really enjoy your reviews Dave and it’s a fantastic looking machine, but if they haven’t addressed power adaptor and machine coil whine, overly excessive fan noise, buzzing fan bearings then this thing really hasn’t addressed its ongoing issues. Shame as it’s honestly one of the nicest ultrabooks around. Dealing with dell tech support is not great also. I would recommend anyone looking to buy an XPS 13 to look into the dell forums and other tech forums about the issues that plague this device.

                                  When suggesting that the better buy is the HD version rather than the 4k version you don't mention that the HD version only comes in non-touch. This is a deal breaker for quite a lot of buyers. Otherwise your vids are numero uno

                                    Does anyone know if the eGPU Box will work on the XPS 15 with its thunderbolt 3 connection? I would rather get the XPS 15 2019 version (man, it really been only 4 years since the first one came out... feel like it was only 2 years) with its 32GB RAM and maxed out hardware, come to the home office and plug it in to the screen and the eGPU Box.

                                    Anyone see if it worked on it and if editing video and photos was good? How about the Alienware 17-51M? Lord I don't have the month to find out for myself lol but if no one has the answer, I might just have to do it and make a video on it

                                            Probably shouldn't manually spin the fans like that. It can actually ruin the electric motor. I found that one out the hard way while cleaning out my desktop with canned air, started having thermal issues later down the line as the fans weren't working correctly.

                                                  Does anyone know how to get dell power manager from the windows store. Every time I try it says my device isn't compatible even though I'm using the Dell XPS 9380. When I tried downloading from the website it said I need a component from the windows store as well. Does anybody have any thoughts or suggestions? They would be greatly appreciated.

I do not have much to compare the laptop to but I love this thing. I feel like I should have waited for the new, upcoming XPS 13 2-in-1, but this was still an amazing buy. This was highly expensive but it feels worth it.

I tested this laptop at the Microsoft Store and another authorised retailer, you cannot view pictures as extra large large icons (but you can on other Microsoft laptops). As an artist this is a great inconvenience. Also, when you move an image to a folder which contains an image with the same name, it is impossible to compare the images to decide which one(s) you want to keep as they appear as microscopic icons. Both Dell and Microsoft have been useless, they don't even want to acknowledge the problem. I'm surprised you haven't spotted this. Thank you.
