    "I have needed a new laptop for a long time now and finally gave the Dell XPS13-9360 my hard earned money. I have to say, I am not disappointed. It is super fast for such a portable laptop. It's not heavy and even came with Windows 10. I have been loving this thing and the best part is that it renders videos like a boss. Highly recommended laptop here."

    "The i5-6200U is a dual core, hyper-threaded CPU with modern features. I find this laptop to be perfect for every-day tasks such as Office, web, network and infrastructure management, and photo and audio manipulation, and more. Unless you're a gamer or heavy power-user, this laptop has plenty of performance for almost all needs. Having 16 GB of RAM and a 500 GB SSD also helps the system remain snappy, responsive, and usable. "

    "I develop websites with this. I'm not going to lie. when it comes to tech, it's high end or nothing else. I need the best to get the best results. This . . .this is not getting the job done. I'm not impressed. The storage is subpar. It's slow as Christmastime. Too bad for me. Even worse for you. Just ain't not good, folks."

    "This is a great laptop and tablet in one and is perfect for freelancers who need to present projects to clients because you can easily demonstrate apps from the tablet part and then go back to the laptop functionality for easy typing and working. The laptop mostly runs pretty smoothly but I have had some trouble using the adobe creative suite(photoshop, etc) with this and if you have too many apps open at once you will notice a lag. So I would mostly use this for light work and then client presentation. It's a great value however, and I would recommend this for someone who needs a portable device that is lightweight and travels well."
