Dell XPS 14 ultrabooks offer a level of multimedia performance that many notebooks cannot match. The 14-inch screen has 1,600 x 900 pixel resolution, and the LED display brightens so on-screen colors remain vivid even in brightly-lit environments. The screens are composed of Corning Gorilla Glass for added protection from scratches, wear and tear.
The two Waves MaxxAudio speakers produce sound quality that rivals comparable professional audio equipment. These Dell ultrabooks speakers are located under the touchpad, so sound is directed toward the listener.
The XPS 14 line of notebooks has powerful battery life, so you can use the computers all day without having to recharge. A fully charged battery lasts over seven hours, making it optimal for users who don't always have access to outlets.
Pros: -battery life is outstanding. i can watch movies non stop for 5 hours. just regular use on and off it lasts all day on a single charge.
Cons: - 2 usb ports, neither are on the mouse side of the computer
Other Thoughts: i originally planned to reformat it and install windows on the ssd cache but that plan was squashed when the cache was only 8gb. buying an ssd for it now which will give even better battery life and make it a little lighter. overall still a very good laptop. I would recommend it to someone looking for great battery life with a decent screen size and sound.

Pros: Same as before
Cons: This laptop is garbage, confirmed by Dell directly this model and the 15 inch version have BAD wifi cards. Dell is offering to ship out an UGLY HUGE wifi usb dongle that takes up one of my available 2 slots, that was before disconnecting my call after being on hold for 3 hours. Company garbage laptop garbage. Why is Newegg selling a laptop that has KNOWN issues that prevent it from functioning?! Newegg offers not option to return just replace, which is rediculous because replacing it would mean receiving another laptop with known issues. Google or search Dell's website youll see what I mean
Other Thoughts: The other reviewer is obviously Dell, giving it that many starts? not a confirmed owner also nice try Dell

Pros: -Boots up quick (less than 15 sec) with the mini ssd
Cons: -Fan can be a little loud sometimes, only during gaming, but who games without headphones.
Other Thoughts: Installed a 120gb munshkin mini ssd w/ the 500gb for storage & upgraded to a 8gb stick of ram. Runs like a champ, plays wow at medium/high settings at 45+ fps & LoL at medium at 60fps. Apps are quick to boot and whatnot. The cons aren't really significant. Headphones cancel out fan noise, considering its on a hinge don't think vertical viewing angles matter when all it takes is a slight push back and bam good to go. the USB port is really my only con but atm I'm not using any more ports than I need. Had a lenovo y570 during my time in afghanistan and functionality wise after i reimaged it and had it setup the way I wanted, it blows the y570 out of the picture.

Update More Dissapointment
Pros: No Pros to go over here, same situation as previously posted.
Cons: After literally, and this is no exaggeration 8+ hours of tech support calls, transfers/returned calls, driver updates, bios updates reformatting etc. Dell FINALLY confesses to me this is a KNOWN issues with ALL XPS 14 Ultrabooks and has been for months. Newegg WHY are you selling a known defective product to customers?
Other Thoughts: It REALLY is a shame because other than the wifi issue, this would have received a 4-5 Egg from me due to build quality etc. How could Dell MISS something THIS simple (wifi functionality) all this work and NO testing/quality control? I could understand if it was a slight issue with an ETA for a fix but Wifi that drops constantly and has NOT been fixed for 5+ months?!

High Hopes, BIG dissapointment
Pros: Build Quality
Cons: Wifi that does NOT work (Reason for 1 Egg)
Other Thoughts: What can I say Dell. Watching numerous reviews, reading countless articles on this product. I had very high hopes for you, and what did you do? After years and years of avoiding you like the plague? You reminded me in a whole new way why I hated you and your products. If you are thinking of buying this, steer clear, no seriously, stay away.
