Engadget Review

Dell’s latest XPS 13 doesn’t stray from the line’s high standards. It’s fast, slim and sturdy. Sure, the company didn’t change much, but it didn’t really have to.

The battery lifespan is exceptionally low -around a year before more than halving. It's the worst battery life I've ever found in a laptop. The touchpad is overly sensible - which means either you have the touch of a feather, or you'll need a mouse to carry out each and every task. The laptop is also very noisy. All in all, a total waste of money -you can get better features with cheaper laptops
