The XPS 13 gets good overall performances from its CPU (video games excluded) and the finishing is nice, but the near-Saharan heat levels, pitiful display and anemic connectivity give this ultrabook a three-star rating, at best....

You might remember my review of the Dell XPS 15z a short while back and how I said Dell clearly borrowed some inspiration from the Apple MacBook Pro. Well, the Dell XPS 13 is much the same, except it is targeting more of the MacBook Air...

Dell's Ultrabook has some interesting design cues, but is that enough to separate it from the Ultrabook pack?The XPS 13 adheres to the most basic of design philosophies: stay thin. Its allure derives solely from its slender proportions, standing...

The XPS 13 adheres to the most basic of design philosophies: stay thin. Its allure derives solely from its slender proportions, standing just 6mm on its shortest end and rising no more than 18mm. The lid is only interrupted by Dell's own insignia,...

Product round-up It took a little while for the production lines to get going, but the first few months of 2012 have seen super-slim Ultrabooks completely outnumbering every other type of desktop or laptop PC coming our way. Intel’s tight definition...

great) The Dell XPS 13 is impressive: in a form-factor slightly bigger than the Macbook Air 11”, Dell has managed to provide a powerful 13” thin-and-light platform that scales up to a Core i7 processor, 256GB of SSD storage and 4G as an...

Dell might have been late to the Ultrabook party, but the XPS 13 certainly makes a head-turning entrance with its superb design. It’s not faultless by any means - connectivity is limited, and it would have been nice to see a higher resolution...

After spending some time with the Dell XPS 13 we were left with the feeling that this is actually a reasonable alternative to a MacBook Air. Yes, if you buy the XPS 13 you have to live without Apple's operating system and you have to settle for a...

Dell's ultrabook gets a passing grade. The touch pad is immensely frustrating, the battery life could be better and the software package needs work. It's built well, but one obvious thing remains; there are better choices out there on the...

There's no doubt the Dell XPS 13 is a beautiful laptop. Its carbon fibre base and Gorilla Glass components not only look good, they give the laptop plenty of strength. Furthermore, the XPS 13 is a fast unit thanks to its Core i7 CPU and 256GB SSD....

So is the Dell XPS 13 the perfect Ultrabook? Unfortunately not, even if the manufacturer has done a lot right. Once again let's look in detail at what we found in the review. Above all the high-tech case sits on its throne, made of carbon fibre and...

There's no doubt among many that, so far, the Asus Zenbook UX31 13.3-inch has been the best of the Ultrabook bunch. Despite the detestable trackpad, it offers Core-i7 goodness and a fantastic design for £999, while you can get the 11.6-inch...

Page 1 of 2 Of all the devices the CRN Test Center has looked at that call themselves an Ultrabook, the Dell XPS 13 bears the most similarities to Apple's MacBook Air. That's a good thing: The XPS 13 is fast, thin and light, and it winks...

Late last year, before CES, we had the opportunity to check out Dell's then-upcoming entrant to Intel's nascent ultrabook market, the XPS 13. Dell has been refocusing their XPS line with an eye on sophisticated notebooks that straddle the line...

Dell has a reputation, deserved or not, as being a reliable, economical and (not to put too fine a point on it) dull choice when it comes to PCs. There have been many attempts to change rectify this; the first in recent memory was coincidentally...

Obviously we didn't get to test the Dell XPS 13 out in the wild or give all of its features a thorough run-through but in our limited time with the new ultrabook we were certainly impressed. The minimal design and lack of stickers around the...
