Dell did a great job with this machine. A few small gotchas for me along the way but overall this machine is one of my favorite ultrabooks that I've tested thus far.

I'm really impressed with what Ultrabooks bring to the table. Light and responsive, they are great for students and business professionals alike that are on the go. Thanks for the review :)
"I have the power!!"
You're welcome LB! :) Thanks for reading.
It appears like a BIOS fix is/maybe fixing the overly excessive fan noise. This would be very welcoming.
Can you comment on the horizontal and vertical viewing angles some more? How would you compare it to the likeness of a samsung series 9? Thanks!
I would say a firmware update with a new fan profile could go a long way. Though the fan noise is really only evident on boot up and under heavier loads. Sometimes during extended HD video watching, it spun up a bit too much for my taste, for example. Under light gaming it spun up the loudest. Viewing angles on the display are decent, not stellar. However, when you're lined up optimally, the display is gorgeous for sure. I'm not sure about how it is versus the Series 9 unfortunately though. I have yet to see that machine.
This is a very nice little Lappy. I like the power sipping abilities when no heavy workload is involved. (probably would be my main usage for one of these) I also like the key spacing since I have large hands.
It's overall appearance is pretty dang nice too.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I'd love to get my hands on one of these. It seems like it would be night and day compared to the HP model my GF has.
I've had mine for about 3 days now. Really like it. Haven't noticed much fan noise.
My name is JD. I work for Dell. Your post about Dell's XPS 13 Ultrabook review is very informative. I suggest to visit Dell website at http://www.dell.com/uk/p/laptops for more information on Dell laptops for any business or personal requirements. looking forward for more such nice posts from you.Thanks for sharing.
I've purchased one and am really happy with it. I wrote a review for a website I created for Dell XPS 13 owners or potential owners. http://www.dellxps13.org About the vs apple comments, its not really fair to compare them because Windows is such a hindrance. I run Linux Ubuntu on mine that levels the playing field.
This a slick looking laptop. We make carbon fiber laptop cases, so when I first saw this my reaction was pure excitement to see a laptop with carbon fiber that would work so well with our designs.
Its not fair to compare XPS13 and a 11.6" UX21. You should compare it with UX31 because as you know UX21 is NOT 13.3.
If you compare Dell with UX31 then summary could be much more different !
dell laptop is good .. responsive, strong and durable ..
Dell is the Boss. They ensure the quality i think, I liked it & its really nice & Choosiness . I got a few info from [ http://startuptunes.com/2012/04/13/dell-xps-13-ultrabook-dells-version-of-an-ultrabook/ ] Too.. Thanks
Ive got one mine yesterday. Only for 900euros running on i7. Very Impressive machine i have to say! Pretty good
What about that reflective screen? I used one instore and the reflections from the overhead lights was terrible. Is there a glare guard that would help?
Also what about that glass screen - how many hits before that breaks?
