DELL XPS XPS13-40002sLV 13.3-inch Ultrabook - Silver

4 out of 5 eggs Very nice ultrabook 11/20/2012

This review is from: DELL XPS XPS13-40002sLV 13.3-inch Ultrabook - Silver

Pros: Construction quality is excellent. The keyboard shape and structure are very comfortable for typing.
sound quality is decent for small size. Really small footprint, only 8.1" by 12.4" (finding a case kind of tricky).

Cons: Minor cons but worth mentioning. For some viewing angles, the hinge does not bend backward enough so you cannot get the best viewing image.
The trackpad works mostly well, but has occasional periodic glitches even with latest driver updates.
The keyboard deck and trackpad have this rubbery matte finish which attracts and retains finger/food grease.
No SD card slot, no ethernet jack either.

Other Thoughts: All in all, a very slick package with a definite high end appearance and feel, close to but not quite at an Apple product level.

Pros: Expresscard slot in a budget-priced model is unusual
Good value when it goes on sale
Light weight
functions fine, no problems

Cons: poor sound quality
shiny black finish a fingerprint magnet
build quality below average

Other Thoughts: Although it has expresscard, expresscard firewire cards have had some problems with Win 7/64 (all computer brands). I was unable to get firewire expresscard to work properly with all tricks known. Maybe need a higher quality expresscard.
