I have a Dell XPS 15, and have had no issues with it, nor coil whine. I think some models had that issue, but not recent ones.

The XPS 13 review for the model here (9350) are excellent, and reviews about any XPS computer are usually very good. The XPS Dell range can't be compared to other Dell ranges.

As for the comments saying "I'd rather have a 8th generation CPU", then buy the new model at full price then, for probably twice as much.

"It's 50% faster": well, the CPU benchmark might be, but actual visible performance may not be. If you do believe the computer will be 50% faster because some operations from the CPU are 50% faster, then you are the perfect example of why marketing exists.

In term of build quality, the XPS is in line with MacBook Pros or Airs. In term of size of chassis, this is the smallest 13" laptop. In term of screen, this beats any Apple laptop. Sorry to the Apple fans, who are always convinced (because they are told) they have bought the best and paid premium for it.

However, it might take some time and some "negotiating". If you can't be bothered, or want onsite support for 2 or 3 years, then best to buy the optional warranty extension.


I had, I believe, the first gen XPS 13 M1330, which had a known issue with Nvidia GPU. After 4-odd years it broke down. I paid £35 for an independent engineer's report and filled a case on small claims court. After a week, Dell lawyer contacted me offering full refund of price paid for laptop + cost of engineer's report. They also sent a courier to collect fault laptop and I kept HDD because of personal data. I believe you can definitely argue your case for "fit for purpose".

Your comment: 'Would beat any Apple MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, in term of screen, build quality and size'. I'm not sure the tech industry would agree with you in general.
Don't get me wrong, I have a latitude for work and have played with an XPS in shops before, but the build quality is not better than a macbook air or pro. And how is the size of an XPS beating a macbook air?
If you want a machine for windows based business use, then this is a good bet. Windows runs well on mackbooks too though.

Nice. Only one in stock.
Had an i7 version for a couple of years now. Faultless and amazing bit of kit - especially for the business user. Battery starting to struggle a bit now and will only last 2-3 hours but will get replaced soon and should be good as new again

15% discount code works for all XPS 13 models
You'd be mad not to pay a little more and get an 8th gen... Sadly there is no more left in the outlet now.

There is loads being returned due to the coil whine, you should look it up and decide if it will annoy you.
Edited by: "you_gotta_be_kidding" 18th Mar
Really tempted. Hot(highfive)
The 8th gen i5s and i7s are quad core and around 50% faster than the 7th gen.

Also, the RAM is not upgradable - it's soldered to the board, so get as much as you need.

The delivery from the outlet is really slow. Expect to wait up to two weeks.

As to reliability - I think they are similar to most high end brands - you only hear from people when there are problems. Otherwise, an amazing laptop - frequently reviewed as the best ultrabook.

Yeah, be aware of this guys. I have the same issue and it's realllly bloody annoying - the xps 13 has suffered for this over multiple generations, I also noticed it on my mothers new inspiron.

The rest of it is pretty awesome, so if you can get over the coil whine - which effects audio quality, and seems to effect the microphone as well - go for it

Totally agree with you ..
Looks real good option for the road warrior types who need great screen and battery life and so maybe the only machine I'd change my Asus for at the moment - great bang for your pound, tho the 'whine' thing is a potential big downer.

That's not how extra cores work but yes, I fully agree, I would be after the 8th gen too really, though at around twice the price, the XPS 13 9360 is still in range of reasonable for an ultrabook. That said, there are some amazing Chinese machines coming out like the Matebook X Pro so it's a really tough time to be buying.

Can I ask people, what is the big deal with coil whine? Maybe I am not that fussed but I never heard anything over the general hum of computer fans.
Does anyone know why the prices range so much for the exact same models on the outlet? I would usually think condition but it doesn't give any specifics. Cheers.
Awesome laptop except for the awful mushy keyboard, it’s the only reason I don’t own one. Btw, this laptop runs Linux beautifully.

Yes, you are given the option during checkout. Standard warranty is 1 year onsite. Due to consumer law in the UK, I personally wouldn't buy a warranty extension for another year, as you are entitled to that anyway.

The "certified refurbished" are usually like new, without any scratches/marks etc. The "scratch and dent" ones may have some small cosmetic defects.

I don't think the price varies much between similar model of the same category. Some might be the newer model (2 in 1), CPU might be different, storage might be different etc.
I'd be a little wary of the courier Dell uses to send out their systems with. I nabbed a refurbished model from the outlet last week and it was sent via UKMail, who promptly lost it completely somehow, despite promising it would be delivered on two different days. I've now written to Dell to raise a claim and hope that a replacement will be sent. It seems like UKMail has had tons of complaints of a similar nature. Chances are you'll be okay, but worth bearing in mind all the same.

The last 2 I ordered from Dell Outlet didn't have any issues with the courier used, and I don't think it was UKMail.
Delivery however takes a little bit of time, which I don't really understand for models already built and in stock. Can take easily 1 week to be despatched.

Nope. Nothing to OBLIGE vendors/manuf to provide 2 yrs warranties, only 1y.
I speak from experience getting shafted by Ebuyer for 1y8m zenbook with broken hinge so I checked my rights.
They held it for a week I had to chase up, "sorry we can't issue a repair nor replacement but here's 60% refund."
Nobody at their service decided to check YouTube for zenbook hinge repairs apparently. For a nonclumsy person apparently it's a 30min job.

What’s strange for me is that they sent mine out within like three days, but since it’s gone missing that doesn’t really matter much.

This is true, my XPS 15 from Dell Outlet was delivered to the wrong address. I phoned Dell and they insisted it had been delivered and would not help me whatsoever, insisting that it had been delivered.

Fortunately the person it was delivered to brought it round the following day and I'm very happy with the laptop.
Most manufacturers don't make it easy to get things repaired in the warranty period, let alone afterwards... So during first year you're covered and UK law gives you up to 6 years to make a claim for an inherent fault - so after a year and you get a fault you'd have to (most likely) get an independent inspection report if Dell (or the whoever supplied it) refused to provide a fix. Even then you probably have to take them to small claims court to get anywhere.

However, I've bought many computers from Dell outlet and Dell and not once had to get a product fixed under warranty thank goodness

I've had an i7 version for a couple years also. I would say it is flawless... but the trackpad is terrible it jumps around when two finger scrolling. You use it for everything. I'm on my third and finally it seems "ok" but it is still a 3/10 compared to the perfect trackpad of a macbook pro.

My battery is still doing well. I haven't noticed much significant decline.

Strange. The glass trackpad on my XPS 15 is flawless, even when scrolling with 2 fingers. The trackpad is often praised on various reviews as being one of the best available on any PC, and is actually made by Microsoft.

Ack, that's worrying. I was reading some stuff on UKMail before they lost my laptop at the depot and was worried I'd be one of the unlucky ones... and I was. Dell are taking their sweet time responding to my message about it too, which is equally as worrying.

Your opinion on build quality isn't fact. You're trying to make it sound as if it is.
You're clearly someone that has a chip on his shoulder about apple. It's not even as if the company you're promoting are small and make cheap products.
I actually work for Dell EMC, albeit in the Enterprise division. This is our standard notebook now. I also have a personal XPS15 that I bought from the outlet site.

Overall the XPS13 is the best notebook I have ever used, the screen quality is superb with a minimum bezel, after some of the ‘bricks’ I have had to carry this one offers performance balanced with minimum weight, as for the trackpad I find it ok, however I do use a Microsoft foldable mouse when in an office. The thing is, keep the drivers up to date. Don’t forget you get 1 years onsite support with the XPS range. I needed to use it for my XPS15 and the service was very good.

However most times, the things that break are also things that are commonly used. In my case it was the hinge.
Try to argue there was an "inherent" fault with said hinge and not just wear and tear.
The onus is on the user to prove stuff and with stuff like that it is impossible. Fair enough if your internal component blows up but on the balance of probabilities that's a much less likely event.

I am talking about my own experience of having a XPS 15. Regarding the XPS 13, I have ordered one, and have seen a few in shops. Read the various reviews in term of size compared to other 13" computers (including Apple ones), weight and screen resolution. I am afraid those are facts.

In term of build quality, I have owned Apple, Lenovo, IBM, Samsung and other Dell computers, so yes, the XPS range is at the top of the market.

In term of Apple customers being smug about their equipment and believing they have the best, I have seen that very often. It's all part of the Apple marketing, so I enjoy very much having a dig when Dell, Microsoft or Samsung releases better products, for cheaper.

"It's not even as if the company you're promoting are small and make cheap products." I don't know what this means.

I've just ordered a 9360 wth 8th gen i7, 512gb SSD, 16GB Ram and QHD screen for £950 from the outlet, so no where near twice the price. And I wasn't saying twice the cores means twice as fast, I was quoting the benchmark reviews of around 50% faster in processor intensive tasks.

Thanks! I'm still feeling slightly guilty spending so much, but hopefully it'll last me for many years, and make back a bit of money when I use it for work (I'm a video editor).
Agreed, a fantastic piece of kit. My 9350 has been faultless. Used to be an apple fanboy but this was a game changer for me. Getting stuff done on a Win10 machine is just faster. i5 6th gen 8gb was plenty fast for what my general use.

Ordered a 9370 last week (US pricing), just because I wanted a slimmer laptop lol

Go for 8th gen if you can.
