    in this era, only buy
    16:10
    Bezeless display

    Prior, only the matebook pro x ticked this box

    Now, new dell xps + lg gram does this now.
    Mac new M1 will have it all.

      I have always had a 16:10 desktop setup, because that extra height is amazing, so I do agree it's the better choice.

      The absolute tiny pool of choices for 16:10 laptop monitors however makes other resolutions acceptable on a laptop. A well spec'ed and well priced laptop with a 16:9 screen is still good. There are also a few other resolutions (3:2 etc) that work too.

      With a choice of dell's premium line, a Huawei, or macos, I'd say "in this era" I'd still be looking at 16:9. Hopefully next era 16:10 is more prevalent!

        nah, its the way moving forward, and should be here soon!
        LG gram
        Mac
        Dells
        Razer

        have all done it, all the big ones have done it.
        Lenovo and Asus are just testing their markets/

        Microsoft should stick to 3:2 because that is still the best productivity laptop i've had, just could not stand the bezels.

        And once the newer M1 mac book comes out, every company will copy 16:10, bezeless display. But only mac can pull this + 2k high refresh rate (if they wanted too) and have 15hours battery life!

        Right now my dell xps 15.6 is the best thing ive ever had, 15hours productivity work, 16:10, bezeless display + zero fan sound (meetings lol)

          should be here soon

          Is really my point, today there aren't enough choices to say "only buy 16:10" today. The above laptops are still a very limited selection of the whole market. "16:10 if you can" is more appropriate, you'd be doing someone a disservice if you only considered 16:10 laptops. In 1-2 years? Yeah may be different! (laptop screens move slowly! Hell you can still get 720p lol)

            @incipient: not really, screen should be the number one priority. You look at that first.
            Ultrabooks = 90% of people seeking productivity.

            These people need to be informed about 16:10 and 3:2. When i first got into laptops, i wish someone told me too look into 16:10 and 3:2, its literally a game changer. Also the reason why the macbook in history have been so dominant despite them being a mac

            In order, i recon, if people care, should be looking at laptops with 16:10 (they are expensive, but well worth), obviously if you can't afford you can do whatever you want.

            Anyways, advice is there, up to people.

            As to above, dont get it, XPS 13'' 2020 goes on sale and hit about 1.6-1.7k, well worth the investment.

      I've bought 3 Dell laptops including 2 XPS and never had an issue. I had an issue with a charger once, I was asked to send in a video of the issue,
      they agreed it was faulty and asked me to dispose of the charger and they sent me a new one, arrived within 2 days.
      As to why you would hold on to a brand new $2,000 laptop for 6 months with multiple critical issues is beyond me!!

        The retail price here in Au was actually around $3k. So, I purchased it during my trip overseas for around $2400 with an international warranty. When I called support from here in Au, it was answered in Philipines and asked me to pay for the keyboard. I had to fly back during my holidays to get the keyboard replaced and the warranty sorted. From

        This is the model that I got, however, I got the top-spec i7 with, 4K panel, 16GB ram, 512GB NVME and 6GB Nvidia 1060 maxq:

    Go i7 and 16GB

    Whilst some people dislike Dell, they're probably not running the XPS (they'll be running something cheaper). Go XPS.

      I have heard a lot of issues with the XPS. Coil whine, hinge issues, battery swelling, display going faulty. And often Dell will have one crack at attempting it before just ignoring you cause their customer service is terrible. It's definitely made me hesistent to pull the plug on one.

        Dell customer service for me was great - had to pressure them a little, but they replaced my whole motherboard within 1 month of unboxing.

        I disagree with this customer service being terrible.

        I had one small issue, and needed to replace the power lead. They were right on it and offered to send someone over straight away. I had to insist that I was confident it was just the power lead.

        Moreover, I've had a broken monitor delivered, and they were great.

          Really glad to hear you both had pleasant experiences.

      •  

        doesn't exist anymore. but yes, could be in this model, but dell support is excellent.

  •  

    got this exact model for $1078 on the recent Ebay deals, very good but theres a fault where the screen goes faulty (white with small black stripes) intermittently on resumption from sleep so now I got to go through the whole support process as updates/drivers etc don't fix it.

  •  

    I've just received my laptop and..

    1. The power button is having issues, where it is not unclicking after being pressed down
    2. The laptop does not sit flat when open. The base on the left side of the laptop does not touch the surface and sort of taps, when you rest your palm on it each time you type.

    Is anyone else having these issues?

    The XPS is back on sale for $999 for anyone that's still waiting on a deal. you'll need Afterpay or have at least 1000 dollars in eBay gift cards though, if you don't want to use Afterpay.
