The XPS 13 has remained one of our favorites here at TLF Windows laptop since it was released in 2015. It’s also earned its popularity among consumers as one of the most used laptops in 2018.
From its eye-popping 4K display to its speedy performance and beautiful design, there’s a lot to love about the Dell XPS 13. It comes in various version, colour and size, but unless you’re strictly bound to paying as little as possible or happy with only a Core i5, the latest 9370 is the one to go for, a new model from Dell. It’s sleek, sturdy, and still on the small side for a 13-inch laptop, all of which make it look modern. Not only is it the smallest 13-inch on the planet with the world’s first InfinityEdge display, it’s a great laptop whichever way you choose to look at it.
With an average brightness of about 470 nits, the XPS 13 9370 is comparatively well-suited for outdoor use despite the touchscreen glass panel.
On the entry level, XPS 13 9370 you’re getting a dual-core processor with four threads, just as on the 9360, but it’s the latest eighth-generation hardware from Intel. Every specification of the 9370 has Intel eighth generation processors, and all but the entry level gets superfast PCIe SSD storage, quad-core CPUs and UHD 620 graphics.
Not only that, but the 9370 is the only version currently on sale with a touch display, likewise if you’re looking for 4K or a Core i7. Plenty of people won’t need a Core i7, but if you’re a programmer, for example, or looking to do some video editing on the go, you’ll appreciate the added horsepower and that high-resolution display.
The system noise is a whole new impressive category on its own. The dual fans remain completely silent when performing minor task like word processing or web browsing. At higher sustained loads, the fans reach up to 42 dB; moderate loads result in a noise floor of about 32 dB. In other words: the XPS 13 with Core i7-8550U is exactly as loud as its sibling with i5-8250U CPU.
Keyboard quality has long been among the XPS 13’s greatest strengths, so its no surprise that the XPS 13 9370’s keyboard offers a solid typing experience, even though the keys are a little on the shallow side. Perhaps because the laptop is so thin, the keys have 1.2 millimeters of travel (1.5 to 2mm is common on mainstream laptops), but they make up for it somewhat by providing a good 72 grams of required actuation force. Typists should be warned though because the layout is still on the small side, with some tiny keys, like Backspace. Still, it’s excellent for a laptop this small.
Furthermore, With the XPS 13 9370, Dell has moved the webcam from the lower left corner of the bezel to the center bottom. A ‘nose cam’ and because the lens is centered, it gets much better angles.
The Dell XPS 13 doesn’t have the best battery life in its class, but it’s near the top of the heap. Can run for 13 and a half hours straight on.
Bottomline, the Dell XPS 13 9370 offers strong performance, long battery life and a stunning screen in a chassis that’s slimmer and more attractive than ever. Also, if you want the best combination of performance, portability and aesthetics, the XPS 13 9370 is made for you.
