Dell's working hard to get rid of these 14" XPS, it keeps popping up with every outlet sale. Not only is it heavy for 14" laptop, the display has below average viewing angles and this particular model has been plagued with wifi issues.
I have this laptop for about one month. Wifi speed is very very slow when it is away from the router. I would get about 1MB download speed, while my touchpad, nexus 4, and Sony old laptop wifi connection get 25+MB, side by side. Save you time, don't make the same mistake like I do.
but not light like a legit ultrabook such as a 9 series samsung
at 4.7 pounds that's not an acceptable weight for the specs it offer.
sorry but i keep bashing on notebooks weight, its my hobby lol.
Most of that weight is probably due to the shell construction. It doesn't feel like you could snap it in half like most ultrabooks out there. To be honest, it doesn't feel like a 5lbs laptop though once you hold it in your hand. I can't really tell the difference when holding the XPS14 and the Zenbook.
Wait for a touch screen, makes a huge difference with Metro.
This. I'm on an Asus X202E ultra book. I'm trying to get used to Windows 8. Seems like I need a MS email to get any of the apps on the metro screen. But the touchscreen is great for scrolling through the hotdeals page. You do not want a Windows 8 tablet without a touchscreen. It would be the equivalent of navigating an iPad with only a keyboard and track pad. This is why they are blowing these notebooks out. They are going to flood the market very soon with cheap touchscreens.
I'm really hating going between Metro, a Start Screen, Chrome, and IE. Wholly cow did they effup Windows 8. Anxious to get the 8.1 update.
