I searched a lot of sites and reviews before finally deciding on getting the XPS 14 and I was not disappointed.It is solid, fast and with Windows 8, it is even more fast and presents an enjoyable experience. It is also very solid and stable and you can see the materials used are top quality. It is really good.The battery life is around 7 - 9 hours of regular use and it boots and shuts down in 7-10 seconds. Really quick. This can be due to to SSD portion of the drive and also Windows 8.And it is heavier than the average ultrabook but hey, it is loaded with heavy materials and content.Dell confirmed they had fixed the wifi issue but I still experience some disconnections to the wifi once in a while. Not really good though.
It can also get a little hot sometimes.
On the whole, I think it is one of the best notebooks I have used yet. It is fast, solid, intuitive, and almost perfect and I wil recommend it to everyone if you can ignore the minor flaws.It is a good buy for me ad I think it is a real competitor to the MacBook Pro (but not in display).
