This laptop is medium quality, it's quite reliable. It glitches a bit and never crashed, The design is very good and in fact I am very happy with it, the design is sleek and modern. The battery life is medium, and it can last for about nearly five hours and half and longer depending on the activity you are doing. The screen resolution or display is not too bad, I don't think this should be for professional graphic work, but for normal daily uses this is fine. The sound system is great, the volume range is wide and the volume is easy to adjust. The keyboard is a bit fragile, so don't tap the keys too hard, or you might break one. The touch pad is way too sensitive, it's hard to control it, and the cursor literally goes to everywhere and this is annoying and frustrating. But the speed is very good, I expect a new laptop to be fast, and this is exactly as I expected. The weight is slightly heavy, it is not suitable for traveling. Because it's not very reliable and you don't really want to have a laptop breaking while you need it desperately. Overall the laptop is quite good as I thought, And I would recommend it because the quality is still tolerable and the speed is just brilliant, this could be a good laptop, especially for students. And I believe that the price is just right. And there are nothing too good about this laptop except the speed which is amazing.
More importantly, the non-touch display in this $899 configuration loses the edge-to-edge glass overlay that the touch version had. The screen bezel is still very thin, but it lacks that unified, tied-together look and feel you get from a single plane covering the entire front-facing panel of the laptop.
But that trade-off in design and touch brings with it a notable benefit. This version of the XPS 13 ran significantly longer in our battery life tests, running for more than 12 hours on a single charge, while the high-res version ran for about 7 hours on the same test. That's a major boost, and it puts the XPS 13 in MacBook Air territory.
Saving several hundred on this configuration and getting radically improved battery life seems like a win-win situation, but I do miss the slick glass overlay and the touchscreen. If Dell had an in-between version with a 1,920x1080-pixel touchscreen and battery life somewhat close to that 12-hour mark, that might be my perfect 13-inch Windows laptop.
Sony wowed the crowds with its Vaio F409 laptop, which squeezed a 13-inch laptop into what felt very close to an 11-inch body, and more importantly, cut the bezel surrounding the screen down to the barest minimum.
We said at the time that this was a system that moved the needle on laptop design, taking a cue from the past few generations of television design, where screen bezels have already been squeezed to nearly nothing. Dell called it the infinity display and described it as "virtually borderless."
