Dell XPS 13 (9360)

 

The XPS 13, Dell's venerable ultraportable with the bezel-free screen, gets Intel's new quad-core CPU, with electrifying results in both speed and battery life.

Stunning performance and battery life. Sleek, compact design. Handsome 1080p display.

Inconvenient webcam location. No HDMI port.

Bottom Line: The XPS 13, Dell's venerable ultraportable with the bezel-free screen, gets Intel's new quad-core CPU, with electrifying results in both speed and battery life.

Dell XPS 13 review: This golden ultraportable hasn't lost its luster

 

New processors and the versatility of Thunderbolt 3 help keep the XPS 13 as a top choice.

The Dell XPS 13 keeps everything that was great about the previous model -- including its near edge-to-edge-display and fantastic keyboard -- and adds the latest Intel Kaby Lake processors and Thunderbolt 3.

The design means the webcam is awkwardly placed at the bottom of the display. Though the QHD-resolution touchscreen is beautiful, it adds a lot to the price and hurts battery life. Gold version will cost you $50 more.

Whether you scale back for better battery life or load it up for the best performance possible, the Dell XPS 13 remains one excellent ultraportable laptop.

Dell XPS 13 Touch (2016 Rose Gold Edition)

 

With powerful hardware, a high-resolution screen, and both USB 3.0 and USB-C ports, the Dell XPS 13 Touch is the best ultraportable laptop for power users right now.

Compact design. Carbon fiber and aluminum construction. High-resolution (3,200-by-1,800) display. Includes both USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.0 (Type-A) ports. Long battery life.

Requires adapters for external displays. Not DCI-P3 or Adobe RGB compliant. Odd angle on webcam.

The Rose Gold Edition of the Dell XPS 13 addresses most of the issues we had with the regular Gold Edition, and comes in costing $100 less. It has a top-notch screen, a compact body, premium construction, upscale aesthetics, 11 hours of battery life, a...

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

 

It's an incremental update, but Dell's latest XPS 13 gets a decent performance boost from Kaby Lake and enhanced graphics support.

Features latest generation Intel 7th Generation CPU. ; Very compact for a 13-inch laptop ; Very good battery life

Keyboard is a almost too small ; Webcam in an awkward position that gives people a shot of your wattle ; Still great, but almost zero changes to external design

In the end, you can look at Dell’s latest XPS 13 as a “if nothing’s broken, don’t fix it” moment. It’s arguably one of the best if not best laptop available. You get that beautiful InfinityEdge display, a super-compact body, and oodles of performance.

Dell XPS 13 Touch (2016 Gold Edition)

 

The Gold Edition of the XPS 13 Touch adds faster processing to the excellent build quality, feature set, and gorgeous display of the original. But the higher price and decreased battery life means this high-end ultraportable laptop may not be for...

Very compact frame. Carbon fiber and aluminum construction. QHD+ (3,200-by-1,800) display is breathtaking. USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3 interface.

Core i7 processor increases cost without a significant jump in performance over i5. Middling battery life. Requires adapters for external displays.

Conclusion The Dell XPS 13 Touch (2016 Gold Edition) shares all the high-end features of the Core i5 XPS 13 Touch from earlier this year but adds in some extra power. This lets the system chew through media projects and day-to-day tasks a little...

Dell XPS 13 review: The laptop with the golden touch

 

This updated Dell XPS 13 is colored gold and has a high price to match.

This updated XPS 13 has a stunning nearly edge-to-edge high-res display, and an upgraded processor and graphics.

This gold edition is very expensive, and battery life isn't as good as some other 13-inch laptops. The touchpad is tricky to use for some multitouch gestures.

The excellent Dell XPS 13 series gets a high-end upgrade in this gold edition with improved performance, but also a high-end price to match.

Dell XPS 13 2016, Gold Edition

 

Shoppers are stuck between choosing based on price, features, or design -- and generally speaking, settling on two out of those three is the best one can hope for. The Dell XPS 13 came close to nailing the perfect formula last year, with an...

Dell XPS 13 Touch (2016)

 

The latest Dell XPS 13 Touch delivers the ideal combination of power and prestige, with a sturdy build, a gorgeous QHD+ touch screen, a speedy new processor, and USB-C port with Thunderbolt support.

Very compact frame. Carbon fiber and aluminum construction. QHD+ (3,200-by-1,800) display is breathtaking. USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3 interface. About 9 hours of battery life in testing.

Needs adapters for external displays.

Performance and Conclusion Our review unit was configured with a sixth-generation Intel Core i5-6200U processor with Intel HD Graphics 520. It's not as fast as the Intel Core i7 processors in the Lenovo HZ550 or the Toshiba Satellite Radius 12. The...

Dell XPS 13 9360 (FHD, i7, Iris) Laptop Review

 

More GPU or more CPU performance? Dell offers the popular XPS 13 with faster Intel Iris graphics, but can the cooling solution handle the additional performance, and is it a good upgrade? Or should you get the one of the new Kaby Lake-R chips instead?

compact & sturdy chassis ; bright & matte screen ; very good application performance ; good input devices ; very long battery runtime ; quiet fan...

...but annoying coil whine ; CPU/GPU cannot utilize full potential ; low gamut and PWM ; small and spongy arrow keys

Potential buyers of the Dell XPS 13 are facing an interesting decision right now. The new Kaby Lake-R processors provide much more CPU performance, while the Iris GPU in combination with the "old" Kaby Lake CPUs promises more GPU performance. At least...
