The Dell XPS 13 9370 13.3-inch laptop is a high end ultrabook that has received positive reviews for its incredibly portable design, its amazing UHD Infinity display that also functions as a responsive touch display, its strong performance thanks to the premium hardware, excellent speaker quality, and its long battery life. However, criticism was directed towards its cooling, with users noting that it can run hot under load, throttling the CPU. Furthermore, the heating issues also lead to a loud fan, which may annoy some users. While most loved its build quality, some did note that there is some body flex, and the camera placement is awkward. A deal breaker for some may also be the fact that is comes with only USB Type-C ports, and no USB Type-A ports. The Dell XPS 13 9370 is one of the best 13-inch laptops on the market, driving a class leading performance, but its heat issues could impact overall performance.

    Dell dauntlessly doubles down on its InfinityEdge design and the race for an even thinner Ultrabook. The end result is a noticeably smaller and more visually attractive offering that doesn’t do much else significantly better or worse than the last generation XPS 13.

    Moving the webcam position, adding facial login and a four-mic array, giving Intel’s chips more headroom to perform even better and adding a 4K screen have all evolved the XPS into an even more formidable flagship laptop. In directly addressing the concerns of users, the Dell XPS 13 laptop is refined further than ever before.
