Telling u a joke, design

Thomas Vanhelden says:

I know so many people that have a Dell XPS (whatever version) that have experienced huge issues. In fact, everyone I know that owns one (5 people) has experienced major problems that required them so send their unit in for repairs (which took more than a month to fix). Just google for Dell XPS issues or read Amazon user reviews, these devices are just riddled with issues. 20-40% of Amazon buyers gave it 1 out of 5 stars!

Seriously, I am shocked that this review doesn’t mention this. I would avoid Dell laptops at all costs.

Hussein Bazzi says:

Open it with 2 hands, don’t be lazy. You don’t want the screen to wobble when you use the touchscreen

Eli Malinsky says:

I would have preferred a 2TB mechanical drive over the 512GB SSD. Storage space fills up so quickly these days that I would rather have more storage than faster loading times.

Christoph Schoppe says:

Does it have a MX150?

People that get frustrated because they have to open their laptops with both hands are the people I can’t get along with.

In india this costs more than Macbook pro! So getting a MacBook is best option in india for those who want a premium laptop

leftplayer says:

Is it just me who hates the touchpad on this machine? I returned a XPS 15 because I thought it was faulty, now got this exact same model, XPS 13, and the touchpad is horrible (non responsive to click, pointer moves erratically or doesn’t move… etc)

Sobrino says:

You say this is your favorite ultrabook but then spend the next 8 minutes trashing it and saying how it is merely “ok.”

Xxan says:

“packs a punch…is massive… pretty good framerates” what the hell is this good for??

Avik Chatterjee says:

Funny thing is Techbuffalo has the same caption for the OP5T and it was just below this video lol.

Pawel Py says:

you do need two hands to open it, but at least the screen doesnt wobble every time you press on the touch screen
