The Dell XPS 13 (2015) is the second model in Dell’s XPS 13 line, and the ultrabook is one of their biggest releases in 2015. With a revamped and smart new borderless design, Dell has clearly set out to produce one of the sleekest and classiest laptops on the market. Aesthetically they have delivered, but does the laptop itself live up to its big billing and lofty price tag, or is this model all design and no substance? This Dell XPS 13 (2015) review will clear up any doubts you may have.

In terms of performance, there is plenty to like about the XPS 13. With an Intel Broadwell 2.2GHz Core i5-5200U processor and 8GB of RAM, the ultrabook is speedy and easily able to run multiple operations at once. The Broadwell is part of the new range of Intel processors, and testing has shown that it outperforms its predecessors, if only marginally, making the upgrade worth it. The laptop also comes with 230GB of storage.

The integrated Intel graphics card on the XPS 13 is a slight let down, but seasoned gamers would likely look elsewhere for a laptop – in fact, they probably wouldn’t go in search of an ultrabook at all – as Intel have always fallen short of their rivals in this area. For the typical user, the graphics card is more than capable for day-to-day use, and should be able to handle older games comfortably enough. The battery life is also impressive, and the XPS 13 outperforms many ultrabooks of its ilk in this department. Neatly, the percentage of battery life remaining can be displayed with five LED lights on the side of the device.

One of the biggest selling points of the XPS 13 its screen. Dell have gone for a borderless look which pays off. The screen really accentuates colors which makes it great for playing videos and games. Two types of screen are available for purchase: the 1920x1080p resolution is the standard screen but this can be upgraded to a 3200x1800p screen which also comes with touchscreen capability. For a laptop of its size, the upgraded screen on the XPS 13 really impresses and trumps many of its competitors.

Frustratingly, the XPS 13 does not come with a HDMI port, and therefore cannot directly be plugged into a monitor. Therefore, you will need to purchase a converter if you wish to do this. There isn’t an Ethernet port either, although considering the availability of Wi-Fi nowadays this shouldn’t be too much of a problem. Again, like with the HDMI situation, you can buy a converter if you need access to Ethernet. The XPS 13 does, however, have two USB 3.0 ports and a slot for SD cards.

As with all laptops nowadays, the XPS 13 comes with a webcam, although the fact it is off-center (the webcam is located near the bottom left of the bezel) is not beneficial, and if you plan on using it regularly, this may quickly become a nuisance. Ultimately, it depends on whether you are bothered about the angle – you will be seen by others on an upward angle, as opposed to a more traditional downwards angle.

The touchpad has also come in for criticism with some suggesting that the cursor has a tendency to go awry due to its extreme sensitivity. However, thanks to the touchpad settings on the computer, the effects of this can be reduced easily. Meanwhile, the audio on the XPS 13 is average – the speakers are not amazing but at the same time they aren’t a deal breaker.

The appeal of ultrabooks is that they are easy to take out and about and the XPS 13 is no different. With a height of just 0.6 inches, and a width and length of 11.98 and 7.88 inches respectively, this laptop can fit into pretty much any bag comfortably. In addition, the XPS 13 is incredibly light and weighs just 2.6 pounds.

The XPS 13 (2015) stands out amongst the crowd, and this ultrabook is one of Dell’s best products of the year. The screen excels and the performance is great. The downsides (lack of HDMI and Ethernet ports, off-center webcam, average graphics card) are not huge issues. The XPS 13 may not grab the headlines like a MacBook might, but you are unlikely to be disappointed if you choose to purchase it.

Reviews

“The Dell Vostro 1520 is sold by Dell as a small business targeted laptop. It has a 15.4? widescreen display, relatively thin design, and has a black glossy finish. The Vostro 1520 is an update to the Vostro 1510 laptop released last year by Dell. Though not a whole lot has changed in terms of design with the refresh of the Vostro 1520, the newer model is slightly thinner and lighter while still maintaining a sturdy build, and it does offer more powerful processor and graphics options.” (StudentBuyingGuide, 2009)

“The Dell Vostro 1520 is aimed at users with no exceptional demands of a notebook, who first and foremost need basic functions like e-mail, internet, word processing and image manipulation. Models with the matt screen are sensible for long-term office use and for travelling. Its low startingprice is also an important factor.

The machine may not offer any highlights in terms of its case, design or connectivity, but it does consistently meet the demands of a basic model for small to mid-size firms. This is also true of the keyboard and touchpad.” (NotebookCheck, 2009)

“The Vostro 1520 lacks niceties such as a keyboard light or Sleep-and-Charge USB ports, and it also doesn’t have HDMI or eSATA ports, but it does have FireWire, four USB 2.0 ports, an ExpressCard/54 slot, a fingerprint reader and good networking features. These features, along with its good battery life and reasonable weight, can be bought for a competitive price of $2048.” (PCWorld, 2009)

Reviews

The Vostro 1320 is a great buy for the price. Although it’s not exactly snazzy looking and far from the sleek look of an Apple MacBook Pro, it does offer good performance at a price tag of around $700 – $800 with a decent configuration. The Vostro 1320 is a great size for students or business people that need to be portable, the weight is under 5 lbs so it is easy to place in your backpack and carry around. The battery life of about 3 hours under normal to heavy usage is acceptable, you can always upgrade to a larger 9-cell battery or carry a spare battery in your backpack if you need more. If you keep an eye out for special deals and coupons on the Vostro 1320 you might be able to get it for a steal, if you can get it for a price of around $700 with the specs you want I would not hesitate to recommend this laptop.”(StudentBuyingGuide, 2009)

“The Dell Vostro 1320 is a good choice for any business user who wants a laptop that offers the best of both worlds: portability and fast performance. We just wish it had better battery life and more modern ports.” (PCAdvisor, 2009)

Reviews
“The Inspiron 14 might seem like a simple evolution of the Inspiron 1420 laptop, but inside the clean-looking chassis you’ll find the same HD (720p/900p resolution) screen options found in the new Dell Studio 14z as well as options for Blu-ray and discrete graphics.” (NotebookReview, 2009)

“The Inspiron 14z is a pretty notebook. At 13.4 by 9.5 by 1.1 inches, it’s slim and sleek, with lines that suggest speed from its edging to the shape of its hinge. A silver wristpad encircles a sleek black keypad and monitor frame, while the distinctive silvered-circle Dell logo rests on the top of the machine in the middle of a clean, slick paint job. It feels a little heavier than it looks, with models starting at 4.4 pounds, but this is still an easy machine to throw in a small bag or to carry under your arm without worrying about its weight–or about looking too much like a nerd.”(PCWorld, 2009)

“Dell has aimed the Dell Inspiron 14z squarely at users who are more concerned with flash than substance, and who consider a 7-hour battery life to be a core quality for a laptop. Students are an obvious demographic here, and they should be able to get their money’s worth out of a good-looking machine that won’t have them scrambling to find an outlet or leave the library.” (PCAdvisor, 2009)
