    good price - is this the one with battery swelling & coil whine?

    • -2 votes

      every xps 13 has coil whine.

      •  

        Never had a problem with mine (purchased mid 2015), aside from the nostril cam it has been fantastic.

        Sadly it does seem to have been a reasonably common complaint, although one that never seems to turn up in the universally stellar reviews.

        •  

          I think mine is the same model. Great laptop, I've used it non-stop over the years. No coil whine.

        •  

          Same. Have a 2016 one, zero coil whine.

          Fantastic laptop. As a bonus Dell sells them with Linux so flawless hardware support is guaranteed.

          •  

            @jaimex2: You managed to get that in AU? It wasn't too hard to get working anyway, but I would have bought it pre installed and saved myself the effort.

            •  

              @ely: No, I bought the Windows one and wiped it on day one for Kubuntu.

              •  

                @jaimex2: Ah, right. I hit up Dell's sales support when the no-nostril-cam version was announced and asked if it was coming w/Linux in AU and sadly "not at this time".

  •  

    Great find, thanks! I've been looking at the XPS lineup as my brother is in need of a new laptop for his business, and this will save him quite a bit of money.

    Unlike the 15" models, the RAM in the 13" is soldered on and can't be upgraded, something to consider.

  • +1 vote

    No touch screen👎. I don't know why the 1080p screens don't have touch while US models do?

    •  

      Funny, I grabbed a refurb 9360 XPS13 from Kogan for $999 and it has the 1080p touchscreen - would say it's a US refurb as the charger cable was US

      •  

        I purchased the same one. I had to confirm that it had touch before I ordered it as Au models didn't have touch for the 1080p models.
        Great laptop. Ram is soldered but the 128GB SSD will be replaced if it becomes a problem.

      I wish I could have got mine without the touch screen, but the touch screen version is also a much nicer screen :-/

  •  

    in dilemma vs surface laptop 2

    •  

      Coil whine is enough to sway me to a SL2

      •  

        I've been looking at XPS laptops for a few days and I was unaware of what coil whine was, just watched a vid on it. It sounds horrendous!!

        Thanks for letting me know.

          To be fair, it's not generally a problem and one that you can return and replace until you get one without it if you want.

  •  

    I own a 6th gen XPS 13 and can say it is the best purchase I've made in my 6 years of uni. Showed gf this deal and she's now switching from mac. Screen is a beautiful matte, typing feels crisp, the infinityedge (less bezel) display is pleasing to the eyes. Well worth it!

    •  

      I got the 2015 model, the fan does have a problem as it can be noisy, 4GB is not upgradable but optimise though the apps, 4GB is okay for general tasks. Otherwise a great laptop, I am looking to upgrade to a 8GB model soon

      •  

        Got an 8GB one in 2015, seems incredible that they're still selling 8GB models at all four years later.

        •  

          They have made it more slimline, overall it's not too different, if they can improve on fan noise, it would be awesome, but as you know most of the ultrabooks have the fan/overheating issues. I am not too concerned as foldable phone are incoming

          •  

            @Yaren24: It seems like the newest has finally fixed the nostril-cam as well, which has been the biggest annoyance for me (using it for work, with various remote teams, so frequent video calling).

            Haven't had any of the coil whine mentioned elsewhere, nor any overheating, but the fan can be loud at times.

            16GB seems like a pretty limited cap to put on things though, and 8GB was very limited even four years ago - if I could have tweaked two things, it would have been same hidpi screen but without touch at all, and more RAM.

            •  

              @ely: Touch screen really changes the dynamics of a machine, it is better in that sense, coil whine is annoying when you on youtube watching food shows, in terms of rams, most ppl get away from 8GB including me, I am ok with 4GB as I don't use it for work, only use it at home for relaxing. The weights are 1.3kg plus charger, so 1.5kg, a good weight but not the lightest book out there. I think that extra 200 - 300 grams of savings would make a huge difference if you use it a lot outside of the house. Overall I am happy with it

              •  

                @Yaren24: Because of it is made of carbon fibre I can carry it open one handed without it slipping unlike all the other metal alloy ultrabooks

            •  

              @ely: I am waiting for them to fix the coil whine, then I will buy one on specials :)

        Mine is the 8gb i5 model (non-touchscreen, 1080p version too). Same year. I could see that 4gb could be an issue.

        I was surprised that the specs are identical except for the CPU 4 years later!

        •  

          My model is 9343, so yes, a lot of other specs are pretty much identical, that's why I am waiting for them to change to a newer model, instead of small modifications like cars

          •  

            @Yaren24: mine is also 9343, 2k touch screen though (and certainly 8g ram!) . the only but unbearable issue with this ultrabook is the (very) short battery life, about 4 hours (guesstimated, could be shorter). This is the major reason I am considering to upgrade it with a "modern" ultrabook with a usb c-type charging port, eg the next gen lenovo x1 or switch back to mac (either new mba or mbp 13). this dell xps13 looks fabulous though, second to none!

            •  

              @aec: That's the problem, when you buy a high resolution screen and touch screen, it tends to drain the battery a lot faster, so my 4GB is the lower spec, but their battery size is the same, 4 hours is bit short, I generally turn to the 2nd lowest brightness, and it last me 6.5 hrs give or take. I would prob wait for another 2 years til they release newer models, no rush

      •  

        I have the 9350 model… I7, 16gb RAM.. 3280*1800 res touch screen.

        Battery life is like 3 hours, and temperatures reach near 75 degrees - the bottom becomes like an oven.

        I hate the thing.

    If you want the graphics card, xps 15 is also on sale on Dell Ebay

    Does it come with MS office?

    I cant seem to find a xps 13 with 16gb of ram on dells website, but can on ebay. Im hoping they the new one with 16gb ram and 512gb SSD.

  •  

    It will deliver in April, is that normal? Too slow!

    •  

      Thanks OP for posting this deal. :) I ordered it on Wednesday night after seeing the deal. Today I received an email from Dell with an estimated delivery date of 14 March, much sooner than April timeframe on the Dell ebay page.

  •  

    Love the Dell XPS13 with infinity edge - these later models are beautifully built.
    Touch screen is nice, probably a gimmick, but sometimes handy :)
    Might get a new one next time salary sacrifice comes up…

  •  

    I have one I bought in 2016. No coil whine, irritating nasal cam though.
    Only thing I would change apart from cam is the keyboard. Key travel too short. Preferred older version with soft touch

  •  

    How is this compare to Asus UX433FA ultrabook?

  •  

    Pulled the trigger on the i5, thanks OP. Coil whine, irritating nasal cam, how could I resist.

  •  

    Looks like the deal might have expired as I get a "you can no longer use this code" message. Isn't meant to expire until tomorrow though. :(
