The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of laptops of a comparable spec and age to the XPS 13 is 800MHz, the fastest is 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. At 1,200 megahertz, the DELL XPS 13 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other ultrabooks that have been available for a comparable time to the XPS 13.

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

Ultrabooks manufactured by DELL have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just ultrabooks) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of notebook PCs of this age and type is 1GHz and the fastest is 2.9GHz. The DELL XPS 13 has one of the faster processor clock speeds (2 gigahertz) amongst laptops of this age.

We compared all the other notebook PCs with a full-size keyboard to this portable PC and we think the HP Pro[plb_1626750_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard to this notebook PC and we think the DELL XPS 13[plb_1474907_price], or the Toshiba Z30[plb_2110228_price] is also worth considering.

If this DELL notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the HP Elitebook 840[plb_1622980_price] (500GB and cheaper), or the Lenovo X240[plb_2197523_price] (500GB and cheaper).
