Thinner than the MacBook Air, but more importantly it fits well within the foot-print of the MacBook Air 11” while having as much usable screen real-estate as the MacBook Air 13” due to bezels and resolution.
The Razer Blade Stealth can be connected to an external GPU enclosure using the Thunderbolt 3 port, taking advantage of the new port's bandwidth to allow a desktop graphics card communicate with the laptop to provide top performance.
The Pixel is one of the best designed laptops ever created. It uses a generous amount of aluminum for the case, and it has a very square shape and rectangular look - there are hardly any curves in sight. There is minimal flexing anywhere, even on the lid and in the middle of the keyboard.
The Pixel only comes in 32GB and 64GB flavors, which means if you need more storage, you'll have to settle with an SD card (comes with a built in reader) or cloud storage. The SD card reader is limited to USB 2.0 as all the 3.0 ports are exposed on the sides.
Dell has made the bezels on the edge of the display incredibly thin, leaving only the bottom bezel (to house the front facing camera, hinges, and display connections). It looks futuristic and very sleek.
In order to support the edge to edge display, the webcam is positioned in the bottom right corner making it very impractical to use. Unless you tilt the screen back, the keyboard will take up the bottom of the picture, and because it's so low if you are video chatting it will catch you at an u...
Like its 13" cousin, the XPS 13, the XPS 15 has the same awkwardly located webcam in the lower left corner. Low webcams are not flattering for video conversations. Depending on it's angle, the bottom of the frame may catch the keyboard
The Intel Core M3-6Y30 and Intel HD 515 Graphics, paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD offers very good performance for its price. The Core M is ranked below an i3 processor, however not by much. The bigger difference is that the Core M is designed to be used with passive cooling (no fans) and draw
the 12" 1920x1080 touch screen doesn't offer competitive color range, and at max brightness is dimmer than most of its competition. It's resolution is high, giving it an advantage over many other laptops in its price range
The UHD (8340x2160) IPS panel is a touchscreen model. It's average brightness is 250.2 cd/m² which is reasonable, but not ideal for outdoor use. The glass layer used is thicker, muting colors a bit more than other laptops. sRGB achieves 89%, and AdobeRGB scores 58% - both reasonable results, h...
On the bottom is a hatch that can be removed (2 screws), which will give you access to the RAM, HDD drive, and a M.2 SSD slot. This means that you can add another drive yourself for a fraction of the cost of including one with purchase.
