Gadget : Dell XPS 13


What one seeks in a laptop is simple; it must be exceptionally light, incredibly thin, long lasting battery and it ought to look good. Dell’s new XPS 13 promises to check all those points. It’s technically a 13 inch computer with an 11 inch full touch 3200×1800 pixel screen.
Priced at Shs2.2m, this gadget is built with silver coloured aluminum court weighing 1.17kg. It has a CPU running on 2.2Hz Intel core i5-5200 with a turbo boost. For speed, this gadget has 8GB RAM with a 230 GB internal storage. The battery life is only four hours and 22 minutes in full function including the use of Internet.
The minor flaws of this gadget are mainly the touchpad that is less sensitive to one’s fingers and the poor placement of buttons for example the power and battery gauge buttons are placed to the right. The speakers too are a bit squeaky although they won’t distract one’s listening. Fortunately this Dell is upgradable, therefore once one purchases this gadget it can be a beauty for a number of years.

The good
• Trim efficient design.
• Comfortable keyboard.
• Great display.
• Speedy performance.

The bad
• Clumsy touchpad.
• Awkward webcam with poor resolution.
• Poor battery life.
