Dell XPS 13 9360 FHD i5 Notebook Review

 

Quiet evolution. The Kaby Lake i5-equipped version of Dell's XPS 13 subnotebook with FHD display impresses with outstanding battery live, great performance and top-notch ergonomics. The display, however, falls a tad short of our lofty expectations.

impressive sturdiness and build quality, ultra-thin bezel and correspondingly low footprint, very good system performance, outstanding battery life, impressive WiFi performance (Killer wireless card), remains quiet under most conditions, top-notch...

display brightness could be higher, just average coverage of the color spaces, can run very hot, occasional (mild) coil whine, not as thin as some others, space bar pressure not uniform

The XPS 13 ticks all the right check boxes. The display performance of the system might not be up there with the best of the ultraportable competition, but that's a minor complaint indeed.

Dell XPS 13 9360 QHD+ i5-7200U Notebook Review

 

Small update, no effect?! Dell secretly updated its top seller: The XPS 13 is one of the first models that gets the latest Kaby Lake processors from Intel. The chassis does not appear to be changed, and the display is similar as well. We once again do...

The Dell XPS 13 with Kaby Lake is an update of the existing Skylake version. The new WLAN module from Killer in particular can convince during our review with useful features and excellent performance figures. The Kaby Lake SoC inside our test model...

Dell XPS 13 9360 QHD+ i7-7500U Notebook Review

 

Now in Rose Gold. The Kaby Lake update adds little to an already excellent XPS 13 experience. Users will only see marginal benefits in both performance and battery life when compared to the outgoing Skylake XPS 13.

relatively accessible internals; upgradeable storage, strong chassis and lid; excellent workmanship, smaller than other 13.3-inch notebooks, USB Type-C Gen. 2 + Thunderbolt 3, Killer 1535 wireless as standard, high quality QHD+ touchscreen, very long...

warm operating and surface temperatures, inconsistent dynamic brightness control, unimpressive internal speakers, suboptimal webcam placement, fingerprint magnet, small Arrow keys, no DDR4 RAM

To the majority users, the most important part of the Kaby Lake XPS 13 9360 update is the fact that the Skylake XPS 13 9350 will now be cheaper. The performance deltas between these nearly identical notebooks are so minimal that buyers intending to use...

Dell XPS 13

 

The Dell XPS 13 became our top overall laptop by offering a 13-inch screen in a more compact package than its competitors, along with a winning combo of design, comfort, performance and battery life. Since its introduction, everyone has been trying to...

Superb battery life; Good 7th-generation Core performance; Excellent Wi-Fi range; More ports than on competing laptops; Comfortable, soft-touch, carbon-fiber deck; Attractive rose-gold color option

Awkward webcam placement; Not as thin and light as some competitors

The Dell XPS 13 improves upon our top-rated laptop by offering even longer battery life, faster performance and stronger Wi-Fi in an equally compact design.

Dell XPS 13 (9360) Laptop Review

 

The best Windows ultrabook retains its crown

Dell XPS 13 Kaby Lake review: Yes, this is the best one so far

 

We can all agree that Dell's latest XPS 13 with Kaby Lake is an incremental update. But when your ultrabook is the one that's being copied by everyone, that's not such a bad thing, is it?
