    Do yourself a favor and don’t buy a Dell. Their laptops are shitty and tech support is trash. I have a HP over 10 years old, and a Toshiba approx 5 years old that works better than the XPS. This laptop has problem after problem, they’ve replaced my motherboard twice, I’ve spent about 30 hours on the phone w/ tech support in 6 months. Save your money, you’ve been warned. Donating my POS and gonna use my Toshiba until I have money for a diff laptop. Maybe some of y’all have gotten lucky with your unit and good for all of you. But proceed with caution, Gluck my people.

    If you're interested in buying this laptop, read my experience with it's 3 year old parent.
    Short review of Dell XPS 13 (9360, 2016) after every day usage for the last 3 years. The laptop is insane, the performance I have today is the same I had the first day. Touchpad is fantastic, keyboard is like new (I type a lot of text and not even a single millimeter of any letter label is missing). Screen is brilliant (Full HD). Fan does turn on sometimes but only when windows forces updating. I still do receive regular driver updates trough Dell Update software which is great! Unfortunately, and in the end that is expected, the battery today has max capacity of 50% it had the first day, which is still good (you can work for few hours or watch movies).
    So considering my experience with the model I bought 3 years ago, if I'm looking for a Windows laptop, I would definitely buy newest XPS. It just can't be any better than this.

    This is a premium laptop in every way, this is why Dell can charge a lot. The fans are barely audible and sound nothing like a regular laptop fan. It's a whisp if that, definitely not a whirring or anything annoying and for normal office use they are silent. I was concerned about getting a 13" screen but setting scaling to 320% makes things easy to read. My only gripe is that it isn't 16:10. If you need that get the XPS 13 2 - in 1. Not seen a 2 in 1 in person but I'd imagine they are probably thicker.

    The 1080p panel is not very sharp, but it’s sharp for a 1080p panel, but looks quite sharp. The nice thing having a 4K panel over a 1600x2560 or 1800x3200 is that everything will scale better if you want the extra sharpness. You tend to notice the sharpness of 4K when you look at a lot of text on the screen

    Really appreciate how he takes a sensible approach to purchasing a product. Reviewers in every "genre" will complain and go for the most expensive, feature packed options because a lot of the times they don't have to pay for them.

    Most other dudes: "Yeah you can't do anything without the upgraded i9 processor and the extra 16gigs of RAM, it's an extra $1500 but its definitely worth it" Referring to a lightweight laptop that'll more than likely just run a Powerpoint as its most stressful application.

    You should do a review and bench test of the 9370 and the 7390, so consumers can understand the differences and buy which one that fits their needs.
