Just received my xps 14 today.
0.1% battery wear but showing weak wifi signal.
Here is a SpeedTest comparison of the xps 14 vs. my custom desktop using a Cisco usb wifi adapter.

It seems like this was a pretty hit or miss deal, depending on what unit you got. My laptops been great so far with no noticeable WiFi issues (other than a minor drop in speed at great distances from the router) and no touchpad problems, with about 4 percent battery wear. As for the IRST I've got the power up to about 15 secs after messing with a few settings, is that about as good as it get or does it get faster? I'm not sure if I changed the right setting or not

Could you detail how you got IRST working? I've had no luck and am about to return the laptop:
And just now as your post came in, I was about to post this in my Dell thread:

So, I bit on this and it came Friday. Some observations...
- It is a really well built machine. Definitely worth the price premium over cheap plastic options
- It is not light but not super heavy either. I appreciate the better battery and bigger screen
- On my home wifi I get about 75% of the speed vs other devices on the 2.4ghz band, but it is faster than my other devices on the 5ghz band. The connection on either band has been stable with no drops. I have not had a chance to test it in competitive/marginal wifi environments to see how poorly it works there.
- The poor trackpad scrolling was my biggest complaint. Disabling DES and installing the latest Synaptics driver solved that.
- Getting Intel RST to work was difficult. I had to run diskpart and format the mSATA drive as GPT but now it boots in under 10 seconds.
- My battery wear is 4% which is acceptable to me for a refurb.
All in all, I am very happy with this machine. I don't need a touch screen for day to day stuff and the benefits of this vs the competition (bigger screen vs 13" ones, better resolution vs most, backlit keyboard vs Lenovo, better battery etc etc etc) are all wins.

To check the refurbished laptop's battery wearing, there is a tool BatteryBar free download .
Mine shows 8% wear, but it still gives a 5 -6 hours on full charge.

|candrarya||I see a 13" invailable in the oulet right now at $1009. There is also an xps 14 with the 9 on the end. $919, but it has been reported that it's harder to get. Still I believe it may be possible if you get the right csr.|

Again I suggest the middle of the night pacific standard time, like 2-3am.
Also read through the xps 13 thread
