Dell XPS 13 (2017) review: Intel’s 8th-gen CPU makes a great laptop even greater

Spread the love

Forgive us if you’ve heard this one before but Dell’s latest XPS 13 is truly the best one yet. Seriously.

Newly upgraded with Intel’s 8th-generation CPUs, the XPS 13 offers unheard-of performance in an ultra-portable laptop. By “unheard-of,” we mean the XPS 13 offers performance approaching and occasionally surpassing that of much larger and much heavier powerhouse laptops.

PCWorld’s Gordon Mah Ung covers the positives and negatives of this hot new laptop.

    Coil whine issues. Steer clear until that is fixed with new main board design in 2018.

    i just don't understand why people always dell to change the design for the xps laptop. i could buy this laptop for the rest of my life and be content with the design. those people who want a different design go to another manufacturer and you'll be straight. leave dell alone cuz next time i upgrade my laptop in 2020 i want to buy the same laptop with what ever hardware is the best available at the time.

    I’m so in love with this laptop. You’re absolutely right, this machine is a beast with all that port included. Mine came last week and I couldn’t stop using it especially the battery life is exceptionally lasts forever.
