Search - "dell xps 13"
Okay, it's getting a bit annoying to _hear_ my graphics hardware (NOT the fans. The circuits) working when I'm doing something on the screen.. Sometimes it feels like it's gonna snap and burst in flames or smth..13
Guys help me choose
I need to buy a laptop for development
Dell XPS 13
Thinkpad X1 Carbon
MacBook pro 13" without touch pad
Or something else?
Which one should I go for?
Budget: 1.3L INR (~2000usd)66
Just replaced my dead battery on my Dell XPS 13 2013 with a brand new one. One whole month I was unable to unplug without a shutdown, not to mention that I couldn't boot it easy due to the dead battery... finally... justice.3
I need a new Laptop for coding when I'm not at home. My first thougt was to buy the new MacBook Pro, so I also could compile my Flutter app for iOS. But then I saw the problems from other people on the web with this machine. Today I saw the Dell XPS 13, it looks great, runs windows and everything is fine. So now I couldn't decide. I want to compile for iOS but also want that damm hot Dell XPS 13. Life is torture.10
What's your guys opinion about what to choose between a recent mac or the 2018 dell XPS 13?
I've been planning to get one of those for a while now, maily to use for college, work and coding (+ photo editing a lot).
But spending so much money, I want to make the good choice, and I'm still not sure.. I've never used macOS, but it seems interesting, but a bit scary too.
What and why would you guys choose?14
Whelp, so much for Dell making good on the 32gb sku for the xps 13 9300. 8 days late and 16gb short with minuscule storage at a $100 premium.
"Developer edition" indeed.11
Has anyone here tried to run Linux on a Dell Latitude 7480? And if so, how'd it go?
I can't decide on what laptop I want for Christmas, it's either a XPS 13 or a Latitude 7480. I know the xps has good Linux support but the 7480 seems to be a mixed bag. If I choose the xps, I'd have to get some dongles as well sine it doesn't even have a HDMI port. Opinions? 🤔6
Got an XPS 9365 and decided after some time to remove dual boot and switch to Arch Linux entirely.
After a week or so I realised this piece of shit doesn't support supend-to-ram properly!
in s2idle the battery drains in about 20h. Also I have to run the SSD in AHCI mode to boot Linux which is slow as fuck!
Seriously Dell, a 1.5k laptop that has a great screen but can't even suspend properly or make good use of the pcie SSD? Fuck you!
Need a replacement ASAP.
Suggestions welcome. 13-14" QHD screen, 8th gen CPU, good battery...1
My fellow devs!
The time has come to finally get a new laptop. The old champ is dying and it needs a replacement. I've narrowed down my choices to a Dell XPS 13 16gb ram 4K edition (I'd prefer the ram and not 4k but whatever).
My main concern is overheating. I want to use it on my commute and it's already getting hot and I don't need a fiery mess on my lap. Anyone have any issues with one? Anyone particularly against them and have an alternative?
I'll be running purely Linux on it as soon as I get it and it's going to be solely for development.7
Anyone else here own the Dell XPS 13 laptop? I'm considering one. Also, I'm thinking of dual booting Windows and Arch Linux. Has anyone here had experience with setting up a Windows disk boot using the OEM license? I'm not sure if the reinstall is the normal process or one of those awful "use this CD to reset your machine"?2
Question for those running Linux on a Dell XPS 13 with a 4k display. What distro do you use? I tried using Ubuntu 16 but had to uninstall it due to absolutely terrible battery life and heat.
Ive been doing fine using the Linux subsystem for windows, but I kinda wanted to give Linux another go and dual boot just for the heck of it.7
Is anyone using a Dell XPS 13 (9370)? This is the 2018/2019 model.
Is anyone of you also facing the thing that is gets extreme hot, when charging? And I really mean only when charging. Not hitting it with a Max load.
Mine gets as hot as it can possibly be and it starts thermal throttling.
On battery, everything is fine and the laptop is cool as ice.
Both situations are under normal load. Nothing heavy ... CPU mostly idle - rarely over 25% utilisation / thread.
I run Linux on it. Not Shure if it is a compatibly thing, this is why I am interested if others are having this issue.8
Okay so I need some help. I need a new laptop which will hopefully last at least through my 4 years of school but I'm not sure which one to get. Currently I'm between the Acer swift 3 and the Dell xps 13. I was wondering if anybody could offer some insight on their experiences with either. All I'd really be using it for would be day to day stuff and programming nothing too crazy5
Trying to decide between the new Dell XPS 13 Developer edition and the Lenovo yoga 920......
Oh and the MacBook pro is a dark horse....
