Dell Outlet has a massive 25% off their XPS 13 9365 2-in-1 laptops at the moment. Voucher code is DOXPS9365. Expires on 16 June (Friday).

That means you can pick up the entry level model (4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, Full HD screen) for £742 (although they keep appearing and disappearing from stock quite quickly).

Stand out deal IMO is the 8GB, 256GB, QHD+ screen option for £842.

All models have constantly changing stock situations so even if they all sell out now there may be some more back in stock before the voucher expires on 16 June.

Brand new these two models are £1,300 and £1,500 respectively.

I see that as a plus, I much prefer the Core-m's for thin and light machines - I had an XPS 13 with the ulv processor and it ran far too hot to use on a lap and the there was a constant intrusive fan noise. For all the heat and noise the ulv processors aren't even that powerful, I now use Core-m machines which don't heat up much, aren't noisy and have sufficient performance for lightweight tasks and when I need performance I use machines far faster than a ULV processor.

​your the man.

Any voucher codes for the xps 15 models ?

Thanks OP, been waiting for a decent deal on these. Ordered the I7 model, bit concerned I've not received a confirmation. Only an acknowledgement. Is this normal for Dell Outlet or should I look forward to a "sorry, out of stock" email?

Just pointing it out in case someone missed it.

Since the XPS 13 has thunderbolt 3 you could definitely look to use it as a desktop replacement if you're tasks don't include too much heavy work or gaming. In that scenario you would need the faster processor.

Agreed. This is not a heavy use machine, but neither are the "u" range. They're better, sure, but not by much. It's completely valid and useful to point out the processor in case others missed Intel's cheeky rename of the m series to i though!

Ultimately I was looking for a lightweight, ultra portable, stylish machine for every day use in the office. They don't come much more stylish than this!

Out of curiosity, has anyone who has placed an order received their confirmation?

Yes. I got the mail confirmation this morning

Nothing with a ulv processor is viable as a desktop replacement regardless of whether it has Thunderbolt or not, the ulv processors may be slightly faster than a Core-m but in reality they're still very weak processors overall. I've read criticisms about the Core-m saying it's too slow for video editing and 3D tasks but I'd say exactly the same about the ulv processors, I did briefly try a quick render on my ulv powered PC and it was going to take so hilariously long compared to my desktop PC I just waited until I could render it on the desktop PC. In practice, I don't find I can do anything more on the ulv PC's than I can on the Core-m's and I also have to put up with an irritating amount of heat and noise from the ulv machines.

For those needing a bit more horsepower for a desktop replacement, I wouldn't even remotely consider a ulv processor and would be looking at one of the 45W quad core parts which is available in smaller laptops although there is a size/weight penalty.

You're missing the point.

The i5-7200U is a 15W TDP processor, the i5-7Y54 is 5W. For web browsing etc. both will be fine. Anything more than that and the i5-7Y54 is going to noticeably trail behind.

Given that both these laptops have thunderbolt someone may look to replace their desktop/laptop setup with an XPS and thunderbolt dock. Doing that you will be more limited with the i5-7Y54 than you would the i5-7200U.

I never claimed one of these processors was suitable for video editing and 3D. I simply said to be aware one processor is slower than the other. You are using your own use case to represent everybody.

FYI all stock is updated daily between 2:45 and 3:00 pm (weekdays only) good luck hunting !:)

Seconding this, hook a core M up to an external gpu and they really feel constrained compared to a U series chip, but then so do the Us compared to the quad cores. I suspect it's a sustained load thing with the M series though, with web browsing once it's done rendering the page that's it for a while and it can go to sleep. With gaming it's going to be under load for an hour or more so will end up throttling down to 1GHz or less.

*edit* also the price of the latitude 7275 (I. E. Dell xps 12, a 12" tablet with dual thunderbolt 3s, core M, 8GB ram and a small battery) is ridiculous. The going rate on ebay is 400 GBP or so, but dell are charging 800 minimum.

Who's gaming on an M? Or a U for that matter. At the end of the day there's a reason why desktop computers and big old fat gaming laptops still exist. These machines have a purpose, and do it well. They're not marketed as gaming machines, or even work horses. They're designed for portability, running web apps and productivity apps, and running 1080p video. That's about it. I agree that so far the heads up and information has been useful, but let's keep the debate seated in reality and leave gaming where it belongs. On gaming machines.

Also FYI got my confirmation through folks, I7 model on its way to me!

Many thanks again OP. I've been waiting for a decent deal on an XPS 13 for months!

I'm not missing the point but you clearly missed my point entirely - anything more than web browsing etc. and the ulv will also horribly trail behind, it's a painfully slow processor for anything that needs any cpu grunt. You keep saying how the XPS 13 is viable as a desktop replacement because it has thunderbolt but thunderbolt for what exactly? There's nothing you can do with thunderbolt that will help the painfully slow ulv platform.

It's nothing to do with my 'own use case' - I've used a variety of processors and a variety of different tasks, there's nothing the ulv processor does noticeably better than a Core-m, rather hilariously I've seen people criticise the Core-m for being slow at video transcoding and 3D gaming....yet the ulv processor while it may be technically slightly faster is still laughably slow to be viable at the task and no use as a desktop replacement.

While technically a ulv processor with a discrete processor is not as slow for gaming, it's still rubbish for it - gaming is a function of both the CPU and the GPU so while having a beefy GPU can help with the eye candy, it doesn't overcome the very weak GPU. Dell did try it for a spell with the AW13 but abandoned it and more sensibly went with a 45W quad core part instead which also features a dedicated external GPU system in addition to an onboard GTX 1060. That is a decent portable gaming system, an ultrabook with a ulv processor and a TB port absolutely is not.

Just because a ulv processor isn't quite as painfully slow as the Core-m doesn't stop the ulv being painfully slow either, I wouldn't remotely consider a core-m or ulv platform if I was planning gaming or any application that required any sort of cpu horsepower as they're both useless at it.

Except the Alienware 13 weighs 2.6kg, making it pretty useless as a laptop in my opinion as it's too heavy to use on a lap or carry around. I appreciate what you're saying but gaming laptops have been practically unchanged for a decade, they gain more performance each year but every generation is hot, heavy, has a short battery life and can be incredibly expensive as laptop GPUs command a premium price. This makes them bad at being laptops but great at being compact desktops. With thunderbolt 3 we suddenly have devices in the 1kg range that can be good laptops that also play games when at a desk. They're not ideal, but I think it's a much better compromise.

There's no way 2.6kg is too heavy to carry around or use on your lap, if we're talking about an SLI 17/18in machine then sure - totally agree with you on that front as that's what was the end of the portable DTR's for me. My daily laptop used to be a 17in machine around 4kg and it was really no problem to carry around at all (still carry three to four kg's of laptops every day and I'm not going to make any bold claims about upper body strength), just a little hefty for using on a train seat - 2.6kg is still absolutely lightweight, it's just the way the market is that appears heavy because it's more than a common ultrabook.

As for gaming laptops being practically unchanged for a decade, that's just so bizarre I'm wondering if you're just trolling now. Being able to have a machine just 2.5kg in weight with a 45W quad core and nearly six hours of batterylife is insanely good for a gaming laptop, it's magnitudes better than older gaming laptops - I thought getting near desktop performance in a 4kg machine and two hours battery life was good, the leaps and bounds gaming laptops are making now are incredible.

Thunderbolt is not some magical connection as some people seem to think it is - gaming on a 1kg ultrabook with a discrete GPU is just horrible. I truly wonder if the people who keep recommending it have actually tried this? I actually have as I liked the idea of it but it really doesn't work. Ultrabooks are good for light work that doesn't need any cpu or gpu horsepower regardless of whether they have a magical thunderbolt connection or not - trying to make them do any more than that is just a lesson in frustration.
