First Look: Dell XPS 14

2:47 /

The latest high-end XPS laptop from Dell is a slick aluminum ultrabook with discrete graphics.

I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at the brand new Dell XPS fourteen. Now that XPS print from -- has been around for a couple years due to look different every year with the concept is always the same. Kind of a high end premium laptop and axes productivity with cool design. I think the latest generation of the XPS probably the best yet it started out earlier in 2012 with the XPS thirteen. Which we jokingly called the Dell book air because it looks so much like a thirteen -- job MacBook Air down to the aluminum body and the tapered down -- design. The XPS fourteen off the fifteen inch model -- a little bit like a MacBook Pro it's still got the aluminum body but it's not people -- -- -- like. Like a MacBook Pro it. Now in this case we've got a F fourteen inch display that 16100 by 900 -- like to see. In a premium midsize laptop the thirteen 66 by 768 is a little attitudes he went to get to you know 999000. Dollars more than that. At some laptops have that 1920 by at 1080 displays on a fourteen to fifteen screen I I think that's just too much -- is just right. I also get Dell's that I keyboard -- -- fine on XPS and Inspiron and other models but it works well on even across the less expensive and more expensive once it's back -- which I always like. Op but only on the XP if you get the big all in one click pad -- kind of like Apple's. -- no button touchpad on the Mac books. On the Inspiron -- get separate left right mouse -- -- little old fashioned I -- this worked just about as good as any windows version of this I think the two finger scrolling was actually really responsive. If you went to the the menu settings for the taxpayer -- -- internal political inertial scrolling. Which is that sort of a little after talks to scroll and Apple as I didn't work is good he RB and leave them off. I you do get Intel's latest generation of core I series processors -- -- record seven which is what we -- here. And discrete graphics which is present considering this is considered in ultra book. Which of that sort of Intel's super thin laptop category you don't get an optical drive however and it is perfectly thin but. I gotta tell you for fourteen inch ultra -- this is insanely heavy even though it doesn't have an optical drive it's four point seven pounds which -- which is more. Then Apple's new fifteen inch retina MacBook Pro which is probably the closest sort of high and mid size -- And of course it's more to -- -- a lot more than the Dell Inspiron fourteen that we just reviewed that also has. I next gen Intel. For a few hundred dollars less although I'm not gonna lie and tell you that that system is as well built -- nicely designed as this one -- I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Dell XPS fourteen.
