Design - Carbon Reinforced housing
The design of the XPS 13 is strongly based on the MacBook Air is a difference, however, the carbon reinforcement. The Dell XPS 13 is made of a mix of materials - aluminum and carbon fiber lid on the underbody. The display is hidden behind a glass panel, which extends up to the edge of the lid and thus also covers the display frame. Although narrow, the lid does not quite measure to the model Apple MacBook Air 13, is encouraging, however, that no sharp edges to be found. The construction is very stable. The lid is not to slight movements in the laptop and can access without problems to only one corner, no matter if. On the palm rest and the display Like the MacBook Air, it is also possible for the Dell xps 15 battery to replace the user.
For computing a Sandy Bridge processor from Intel is responsible - depending on the equipment of the 1.7-GHz dual-core Core i7-2637M or Core i5-2467M dual-core at 1.6 GHz. There are also four gigabytes of RAM and an SSD with 128 or 256 gigabytes. EV drivers have run out of battery power while the fuel gauge still indicated a comfortable 25 percent reserve. The Dell inspiron 6400 battery in the electric vehicle, on the other hand, shrinks and technology to measure dispensed energy needs improvement.
The Dell XPS 13 is the second smallest intended for Ultrabooks processor i7 series. The i7-2637M chip has two cores and a base clock speed of 1.7 gigahertz. With the popular Turbo technology, this can be increased up to 2.8 gigahertz. The XPS 13 provides under comparable Ultrabooks currently the highest work rate, - test: Ultrabooks - Ultrabooks in the test. However, it was also pretty hot here: This fan output of carbon-fiber underbody, it warmed up to 40 degrees to 60 degrees Celsius - which can be very uncomfortable. Estimating storage capability and measuring Dell xps m1530 battery energy from an electrochemical device is far more complex than with a liquid fuel storage system.
The XPS 13 will boot in just eight seconds and resume from sleep mode only takes a second (four seconds from Deep Sleep mode) - thanks to solid-state hard drive and Intel's Rapid Start Technology.
To play the XPS-13 models are due to the modest graphics solution Intel HD 3000 but hardly suitable. Which is still fast enough to play for example Starcraft 2. More demanding games the integrated graphics core creates but not smoothly. The graphics unit is poorly suited for more demanding tasks.
The number of connections is limited to a minimum Dell: Only a total of two USB ports (one USB 3.0), a mini-display port and an audio jack. Annoying is that Dell disclaims an Ethernet port. So you can only access networks through Wi-Fi, which transmits fortunately in systems with 2.4 and 5.0 gigahertz. With smartphones and other hardware, the Dell communicates via Bluetooth 3.0. A card reader is missing. Sufficient space effectively with the SSD provides 238 gigabytes. The BMS of an electric powertrain should also indicate the total energy a Dell inspiron 1440 battery can hold at any given time.
Dell moves to now: Also, the XPS 13 has a very small display bezels. According to the manufacturer, despite a housing width of 13 inches to reach an image diagonal of 13.3 inches. Behind scratch-resistant Gorilla glass hides a resolution of 1366x768 pixels - there should be more there. The biggest shortcoming is very strong but the reflective display surface so that reflections can interfere with work and watching movies. Even in low light, the backlight will be trying to compensate for reflections. The display also suffers even at low contrast, which makes the colors always look a little washed out.
The keyboard used in the XPS 13 is already known by many other Dell laptops. A little highlight is the backlit keyboard, which makes the work is not complicated by late letters search. The touchpad hakelt. Only a new driver for the touchpad creates large extent by measures at the beginning of imprecise control. With two fingers, it is now quite precise scrolling. The recognition of yesterday is applicable with up to four fingers. The Dell gk479 battery capacity may have dropped to 80 percent, but the BMS will still show 100 percent SoC after a full charge.
The downside of the power consumption and emissions. With one battery charge held the high-tech device by 3 hours and 41 minutes. Much shorter holding the notebook by the gaming test. With Starcraft 2 is a playthrough of just less than two hours is possible before the Ultrabook back to the power supply needed. A weak battery also charges more quickly because there is less to fill.
Among the keys are the two speakers, despite their proximity to each other or give just a stereo feeling. The notebook can output sounds pretty loud. Given the small space available a tin sound is unavoidable. Overall, the sound is quite good. To compensate for losses and honor the 8 to 10 year warranty, EV manufacturers oversize the battery by 20 percent. This no longer works because most modern Li-ion batteries maintain low resistance as the Dell t114c battery ages.
Dell has the XPS 13 on Windows 7 Home Premium in 64-bit variant, including Service Pack 1 There are also all sorts of tools and programs, for example for making backups or updating drivers. For safety to ensure McAfee SecurityCenter.
