Refurbished: dell xps 13

Summary: Dell did a great job with the XPS 13 9343. They created a compact and light máy tính xách tay with a 13 inch display, fast hardware, good keyboard/trackpad và long battery life, and on đứng top of all these, a laptop with very little flaws. On the other hand, the proper priced options lack a touchscreen, so if you"re not a big tín đồ of matte panels, you"re going lớn have to pay a lot for a mã sản phẩm configured lớn your needs.

THE GOOD

nice industrial design, splendid build quality, matte IPS display, good keyboard và trackpad, fast hardware, no bloatware on this version, mostly noiseless, punchy speakers, good battery life, affordable starting prices


THE BAD

surprisingly dim display (see the Screen chapter), charges slowly, can get hot, annoying trắng LED next to the trackpad, touchscreen equipped models are pricey


I have to lớn admit, the XPS 13 2015 9343 is one of the few ultraportables that caught my attention at CES. Và since it was one of the first Broadwell U laptops available lớn buy, I took the plunge and got one early, in January 2015.

Initially, I’ve ordered it so I could nhận xét one of the new-gen ultrabooks (at that time) as soon as possible & while there were some things that I liked about it, I did not intend khổng lồ keep it, as I already had a portable máy tính xách tay that satisfied my needs. But after actually using this XPS for a while, I’ve decided it is a good replacement for my veteran Lenovo ThinkPad X220. I still have a few gripes with it & there are aspects that will take some time khổng lồ get used to, but even so, this little fellow managed lớn impress me. Và that doesn’t happen often.

Just khổng lồ be clear, I’m reviewing a Dell XPS 13 2015 edition here (model 9343, or Dell XPS with Infinity Display as it’s called on Dell’s website), a basic configuration that sells at the time of this post for $899 và includes an Intel bộ vi xử lý core i5-5200U processor, 4 GB of RAM, a 128 GB SSD và a FHD matte non-touch display. I bought it from the Microsoft Store & that makes it a Signature Edition, with no bloatware at all và a few customized drivers, so it is somewhat different from the units you can buy from Dell directly, và we’ll talk about that in the article.

Update3: While I haven’t yet updated my XPS 13, I’ve covered all the XPS 13 follow-up models in our reviews, and you can find all our XPS 13 articles over here, up to the latest iteration, the 2019 XPS 13 9380.

While not without some minor flaws, the Dell XPS 13 is one of the best 13 inch ultrabooks of the moment


All these wouldn’t mean much if the pricing wasn’t right as well though. My configuration sells for $899, but imo the ideal option right now is the i5 / 8 GB RAM / 128 GB SSD mã sản phẩm sold by Dell for $999, since the memory cannot be upgraded và 4GB aren’t going khổng lồ cut it on the long run. That if you want the matte non-touch panel. If you want the touchscreen, you’ll have to lớn pay extra, as this one is only bundled with some higher-end specs & the cheapest starts at $1300 (i5 with 8 GB of RAM và 256 GB SSD; the i7s start at $1500).

Update: You might also want to read this other post, a collection of impressions gathered after using the XPS 13 for 8 months. It will shed light on a few other aspects you should have in mind when deciding to go for this thing or rather look somewhere else.

In the end, when I draw the line, the reviewed Dell XPS 13 is a good buy. For me is a lighter, smaller, faster và longer lasting computer than my old ThinkPad. I’m loosing on ports và typing experience, but I’m gaining plenty, so I’m happy to make the switch. For everyone else, I believe the XPS 13 can be a solid option if you need a compact, well built and fast computer for everyday activities. It’s not without rivals, and I’m looking here & the Acer Aspire S7-393 , the HP Spectre x360 and even the bộ vi xử lý core M Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro and hãng asus Zenbook UX305, plus the other devices that will be released in the future, including the 12 inch Macbook & other Broadwell powered ultrabooks. But it should face them all head-high.

With that in mind, it’s time khổng lồ wrap this up. If you have any questions about the Dell XPS 13 2015 9343 reviewed here and other ultrabooks, or anything to showroom to the post, the comments section is xuất hiện and I’m around to lớn reply.
