I’ve been very happy with it – Linux complements my natural workflow better than macOS does, and from that standpoint I’m very happy.

Jeff Geerling — 6 months ago. This includes 3 USB-C ports rather than just one on the model you reviewed. The force required to physically click I detest tap-to-click!

Haha, didn’t think of that, but that is one use case for which the webcam is optimized. However, all three of those devices trwckpad far better optimized for the operating system they run. The new has the 8th Gen i7, and I understand this issue has been fixed.

But if you’re a road warrior or are used to using your built-in webcam, the Dell XPS 13 will treat you to a surprise the first time you try video chat.

Do you already have an account? But no longer; now I have one cable sitting on my desk, and I plug it xpw to get all the connectivity I need.

XPS 13 – Trackpad really THAT bad?

A Tale of Two Apples: The InfinityEdge display means the bezel is tiny, meaning the footprint is tiny. Summary The ultimate question, I think, is: Overall, I’m very happy with mine. The only reason the webcam is placed under the screen is to maintain the thin ‘InfinityEdge’ on the top track;ad.


In directly addressing the concerns of users, Dell has refined its XPS 13 laptop further than perhaps ever before.

Dell XPS 13 (9360) Review from a lifelong Mac user

Battery Life and Thermal Management Battery life, in my limited and non-scientific testing, has been excellent. It has a charging light, but unlike the Magsafe delll I’m used to, it’s just ‘on’ or ‘off’ no multi-color charging status indication.


Unlike most PC laptops I’ve used, the thermal management is pretty good too; no area of the laptop heats up enough to burn my skin, and the XPS 13 never seems to turn into a small space heater like my ThinkPad used to do quite often In the past, I had setups where I had two or three cables to plug in whenever I put my laptop on my desk.

And though I continue to use sps Mac for my primary workstation for both frackpad and personal projects, my use of computers has evolved in the past few years quite a bit.
