The XPS is a laptop series flagship product from American manufacturer Dell. The Dell XPS series is known for its slim, sturdy and powerful processor laptops for professional employees. The company has recently launched the XPS 13 (9310) laptop in the same series in India. We can use the Intel Core i7 version of it. It has a starting price of Rs 2,09,990.
Dell XPS 13 (9310): Design and display
The Dell XPS laptop comes with a full metal body and a gray white or silver matte finish. The back is given the Dell logo in the middle. Which comes with an ultra-theme matte coating and shines in the light. This is the only part that shines when the light falls on it and makes the Dell logo look attractive. Efforts have been made to prevent fingerprints from sticking out and to make it easier to catch, but after a few days, dust appears on it. Special attention needs to be paid to the back of the display. Because, dust settles here.
The back of the display comes with a silver gray finish, while the keyboard and trackpad come in white. This gives the Dell XPS 13 (9310) laptop a silver-white look.
The rear side of the chassis is given a silver gray matte finish, similar to the rear side of the display panel. Looks like a very thin back used for this. Just like the ‘DELL’ logo, the ‘XPS’ logo also appears in the middle.
The back is provided with two rubber straps in the shape of a chassis. This gives the laptop a proper grip on the table.
The matte finish only appears on the front and back of the laptop (when the laptop is off). However, it is not visible on the edges of the laptop, display panel and chassis. This makes the silver metal easily visible.
The display of Dell XPS does not fully open at 180 degrees. Only opens up to a 120 degree angle. The laptop is given a central hind design, which allows the display and chassis to be securely connected; But not strong.
It feels heavy to carry a laptop in one hand. It weighs more than 1 kg and measures 11.6 x 7.8 x 0.6 inches (295.7 x 198.7 x 14.8mm). Is.
It has 4 ports on both sides of the chassis. It has two Thunderbolts, a 3.5mm headphone / microphone jack and a microSD card reader.
This may be a problem as it does not have a USB Type-A port. However, USB type C can be used as type A by changing the cable. In this way Dell has saved itself from customer resentment.
It is worth mentioning that the keyboard and trackpad on the chassis are excellent and without any errors. Also, the anti-fingerprint part on the chassis with keyboard and trackpad is also good. This part looks very smooth and there are no fingerprints. There is also no chance of dust settling here.
The special feature of this device is its display, which has a 13.4 inch 4K OLED (3840×2140 pixels) display. The display, however, seems to weigh more than the chassis. However, there is no reason to panic as the chassis does not weigh much. The colors are accurate and sharp. The more pixel density, the clearer the display information.
At the top of the display are two small and invisible orifices for the microphone. It is given in the center at exactly the same distance from the edge. The side edges are very delicate and do not interfere with the screen. Also, the light reflects on the display.
Dell XPS 13 (9310): Performance
The XPS 13 (9310) model we used comes with Intel Core-i7 processor and Intel Iris Xe graphics. It comes with 16GB LPDDR4x RAM and 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD storage. The laptop runs on Windows 10 Home operating system. Given more RAM, the laptop runs smoothly even during multitasking. We opened 15 to 20 tabs at a time and tried to see how fast it loaded. The loading didn’t go very fast, but it didn’t take long. The laptop can handle more than 20 tabs at a time and will take a few seconds to fully load. We didn’t see much of an obstacle in working on it.
We noticed that the left and middle sides of the keyboard were hot when working for more than an hour. It feels overheated when the graphic-laden application is running. However, I don’t feel the problem of overheating at other times.
If you are using another keyboard, it may be difficult to get your hands on this keyboard. But the fingers soon get used to it. The typing was very quiet and smooth.
The audio of the laptop is capable of making a great sound in a room. But if you want to enjoy the song, you must use headphones or speakers. If you are watching a movie or a series with your laptop close to you, then the speakers will work best.
Dell XPS 13 (9310): Battery
The XPS 13 (9310) laptop takes two hours to fully charge from zero. The laptop also feels a little hot during charging.
The laptop comes with a 52 Wh battery and a 45 watt USB Type-C charger. The battery gives a backup of 5-6 hours when fully charged. It doesn’t go very well, but it works. When working, keep the laptop in Better or Best Battery modes to increase battery life by 40-45 minutes. If you are watching graphics or high quality video, the battery is likely to run out very soon.
The Dell XPS 13 (9310) comes in a sleek specification and a silver-white color with a full metal and sturdy body. It has a 4K display. The general performance of the laptop is fast and can also handle multitasking easily while working. However, heavy applications can cause heating problems. Lack of ports can also cause problems for some. At the same time, the heat dissipation could have been better. In addition, it has very few errors. The starting price of the laptop is Rs 2,09,990. This price is too much. However, if you are willing to spend, the XPS 13 (9310) laptop with 4K display and Core-i7 processor would be a good choice.
