The Dell XPS 13 9360 YV49T has finally been released and for those who are looking for a high end laptop that can be used for both productivity and day to day use it seems like a great option. It may not be easy on the wallet but those who demand the best are usually more than willing to pay for it and below we will review some of the benefits and downsides to this model so we can determine just how well it stacks up to the competition.
Processor: Intel Core i7
Memory: 16 GB of RAM
Storage: 512 GB SSD
Screen: 13.3 Inches
OS: Windows 10 Home
– When assessing a new high end laptop its performance is going to be one of the first things consumers look at and this laptop does not disappoint in this category. It comes with a powerful Intel Core i7 and unlike many newer laptops which only include 8 GB of memory you will find 16 here meaning it can easily handle heavy multitasking or those power hungry applications
– Dell has struck a great balance between hard drive performance and storage space by going with the 512 GB SSD. The fast performing SSD helps give performance a boost and gives the laptop some great boot times but you will still find plenty of space for all your important files
– Not just one but two USB 3.0 ports can be found on this model
– A backlit keyboard is included making it great for working in poorly lit conditions
– Plan on spending plenty of time on the go? With up to 13 hours of battery life on a single charge it is quite easy to get a full day in without ever needing to find a power source
– While most of the specs are impressive on this model one area that they haven’t invested in is a decent graphics card. This laptop is not designed to be able to handle newer and video intensive games
– The cost is unfortunately going to turn away some consumers as you can expect to pay about double what you would for a more basic model
The Dell XPS 13 9360 YV49T isn’t easy on the wallet but seems to be well worth the extra money if your looking for something that is high performing and great for taking on the go. As long as gaming isn’t one of your primary needs it seems like a great option.
