Chart Edit

DELL Has Good Portable PC Reviews

Medium processor core notebook PCs built by DELL have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just medium processor core notebook PCs) and found that DELL also has good ratings across its entire range.

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 2.4 gigahertz, the DELL XPS 13 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other laptops that came out more than a year ago. Across all the similar spec laptops that are a comparable age to the XPS 13 the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.3GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.2GHz.

There are a number of alternative 2.4GHz processor clock speed laptops currently available that you might want to look at including the Samsung ATIV Book 9[plb_2699671_price] which is cheaper.

If you want a laptop with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the Asus UX303UB[plb_2993330_price] (2.5GHz and higher rated) or the HP EliteBook 820[plb_2862103_price] (2.6GHz and cheaper).

In addition, this notebook PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The best memory clock speeds supported by processor of all similar spec portable PCs that were released around the same time as the XPS 13 is 1,866MHz and the worst is 133MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL XPS 13 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most laptops of a similar type and age to it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium across all laptops of a similar spec and age to the XPS 13.

The worst storage medium across similar types of portable PC is HDD.

We compared this portable PC to all the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media and we think a cheaper portable PC such as the Lenovo X250[plb_2928645_price] or you might consider a higher rated portable PC such as the Lifebook U745[pl_3000568_price], and the Lifebook U745[pl_3000568_price] both from Fujitsu are also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the Toshiba Tecra Z50[plb_2090365_price] (SSD).
