    so basically what all comments are saying theses guys are clueless and doing the safe option.Not the best not the most up to date towing the party line as we all know the xps 13 is now overpriced and a year late.As for Alianware really ffs stop taking backhanders its out of date old heavy and a year behind competition

    Uh, you might have mentioned that the “mere” two usb-c ports on the x360 are BOTH Thunderbolt enabled. That’s a pretty major omission.

    The background picture for that screen on the left looks like how you would see the Grudge through a peephole in your front door.

    I tested the subject for a long time. The best one i found is the "DELL XPS 13" by far the best one. Aside from it's price it's the best one hands down. The price is can vary from 800$ to 1300$ depends on you're choosing of the improvement of the existing. Here you can find it in 787$. Still a bit expensive but i defiantly think it worth the price. enjoy!
