Power/performance

The Dell has an Intel Core i7 processor to provide a fast way to even get complicated and time consuming tasks done, surpassing the Dell XPS 13 9380, which has an Intel Core i5 processor. It’s also available with either Intel UHD graphics or Max Q GPUs such as the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU to provide stunning visuals through the Full HD screen. The 16 GBs of RAM also help, allowing the user to open more programs without slowing the computer down.

Battery

This laptop’s battery life is above average as it lasts for at least 12 hours, having a higher battery life than the Dell XPS 15 7590, which is about 9 hours. A couple of things to do to make the battery last as long as it can are to make sure that the screen isn’t at its brightest, and to make sure that the RAM and CPU aren’t being pushed to their limits by running a lot of programs at once, especially programs that require more resources.

Ports/expandability

This assortment consists of a SD card reader, an audio/ microphone combo jack, and USB C ports. While it’s a simple assortment of ports, those ports provide fast charging for various devices as well as a fast file transferring speed. It also provides Bluetooth, which somewhat adds even more types of devices that the computer can be connected to, and is especially useful if there’s ever a chance the ports can’t function.

Build quality

It’s slightly heavy for a laptop as it weighs 4.5 Lbs., weighing more than the Asus Chromebook Flip C434, which weighs 3.3 Lbs. It has a slim design reminiscent of a Macbook Pro, and has a chassis made of aluminum to provide decent durability and protection. However, what makes it stand out is how it has Corning Gorilla Glass 6 as the material that protects the touch display from getting damaged too easily.

Value

It’s quite expensive, but it has various reasons for that: It has 3D surround sound provided by a quad speaker design, 16 GBs of RAM, and the screen with high quality protection from damage. It also made some improvements compared to the model from last year, with some of the aforementioned parts, the processor, and the solid state drive being of higher quality and/or providing more storage as well as fast performance.
