    My thoughts exactly. XPS line looks great on paper and all...but once I got to test them irl I immediately decided against them. In addition, Dell seems to always have hardware problems. And stop joking! Nothing looks as good as the Razer Blade Stealth!

  3. I had been looking at the xps 13 for awhile but decided to wait until ces to see if anything better would be shown. Im so glad I waited, this laptop seems like a godsend!

    "One of the reasons the bezels are so big is so Razer could fit two large speakers below them at the sides of the keyboard."

    Yeah that makes no sense. I'm really interested in the Razer Blade Stealth, but that author is nuts.

    Then in the comments "I had the XPS 13 for a while -- great laptop. However, the keyboard just hurt my fingers."

    *insert your favorite facepalm meme here*

    I'm not a big fan of the XPS 13—it didn't feel good when I got to have a hands-on—but for a professional reviewer like him, he really should have chosen his words more carefully.

    For one, the official statement for viewable-from-orbit bezels is the screen quality. Not sure why he chose to say that instead.

    I think the keyboard thing is kind of subjective though, and is not part of the official review so I can't exactly blame him. Some things you just have an unspeakable affinity with, and I guess he didn't have that with the XPS 13.
     
  6. I wish i had bought this instead of my Surface :slightly_sad: hopefully it will breakdown soon :D
     
  7. I just saw an xps 13 in person for the first time to day and i have to say that it did not look that good, it did not look like a premium laptop at all. The only thing it seems to have going for it is the small bezels and long battery life. But that was just my first impression i got from it after 15 minutes.

    I hardly think so. Mine is bent for some reason and I haven't even took it outside. When the lid is closed, the left side won't close shut. Now I have past the 14 day return period and I contact the Razer support, they told me to send it to a repair center!

    My MacBook took 4 years of beating and still looks mint.

    How? I carry my stealth literally everywhere and it still looks just as good - with the exception of a few fingerprints. Can you show us some pictures?

    I even bought the stand and the sleeve. I mostly use it on the stand, occasionally use it in bed, but I put it on top of the box it comes in. That metal piece sticking out, is bugging me so much.

    Seems like a faulty machine..I would be giving them so much crap - that's not acceptable. I would definitely call them.

    Holy crap. That's definitely a manufacturing issue.

    I send these pictures to Razer support, and they told me they will repair it for me. I mean I just spend 12 grand on a brand new laptop and now you are telling me you will have someone took it apart and bang it back somehow when it is clearly bad manufacturing?

    I told them I just want to return it at a cost since it's already been 14 days, I don't know how they want to deal with this. It's been a week since I contacted them.
