Updating video driver dell dimensions
The option I got, the one without a touchscreen, tips the scales at 2.6 lbs (1.17 kilos), while the touchscreen model is about 0.2 lbs heavier.
That’s about 1 lbs less than my older X220 and sure makes a difference while on the road.
Aside from the Microsoft Store that offers Signature Edition models, like the one we have here, most other versions will include some preinstalled software on them.
At the same time, Dell’s website does offer more models and there are coupon codes you could use, so there’s a fair chance you will get this cheaper from them or other third party stores like Amazon or Best Buy.
The metallic exterior is not extremely grippy either, but Dell’s design helps here.
They stretched the rubber feet on the belly across the laptop’s entire length and that makes for a wedge for me to grab the laptop when needed, that goes along perfectly with the black rubbery plastic hinge.

I still have a few gripes with it and there are aspects that will take some time to get used to, but even so, this little fellow managed to impress me. Just to 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 9 and includes an Intel Core i5-5200U processor, 4 GB of RAM, a 128 GB SSD and a FHD matte non-touch display. They created a compact and light laptop with a 13 inch display, fast hardware, good keyboard/trackpad and long battery life, and on 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 fan of matte panels, you're going to have to pay a lot for a model configured to your needs.THE GOODnice industrial design, splendid build quality, matte IPS display, good keyboard and trackpad, fast hardware, no bloatware on this version, mostly noiseless, punchy speakers, good battery life, affordable starting prices I have to admit, the XPS 13 2015 9343 is one of the few ultraportables that caught my attention at CES.And since it was one of the first Broadwell U laptops available to buy, I took the plunge and got one early, in January 2015.
