Here at KitGuru we love a good, gaming laptop. However, we also place high value on Ultrabooks due to their portability and typically high-end hardware. The Dell XPS 13 has been at the forefront of the Ultrabook market for the last few years, and today’s review is of the new 9360 model – complete with an i7-7500U, 256GB PCIe SSD and InfinityEdge display.
If you are looking at buying a new Ultrabook, it is very likely you have already considered the Dell XPS 13. The latest model – the XPS 13 9360 – features brand-new Kaby Lake hardware as well as an ultra-thin body. The super-thin screen bezel is also worth pointing out, as Dell have somehow managed to cram a 13.3″ display into a chassis that looks more like an 11″ laptop. Read on for the full review, including system benchmarks, battery performance and analysis of the XPS 13’s build quality.
