    Hi everyone,

    I got new XPS 13 both from Microsoft store and Dell official website.

    Here are specs and atto benchmark:

    Microsoft store
    i5 / 4G RAM / 128GB SSD (Liteonit L8T-128L9G)
    ???? 2015-01-17 00.21.14.png
    Dell
    i5 / 8G RAM / 128GB SSD (Samsung PM851)
    ???? 2015-01-17 02.20.10.png

    It seems like Liteonit is way better than Samsung, any ideas?

    It REALLY does make sense. Samsung drives are shxt when it comes to 128gb. Sandy-Ivy-Haswell models all had LiteOns that far outperformed Samsung's mSATA drives in WRITE speed. This continues to this gen XPS as well.

    I never understood why people were like Samsung Samsung~~ for these 128gb drives. I was always happy my batch was LiteOn.

    Where do you find this software ? I don't see it installed or doesn't come up with a search.

    Does the screen dim when on battery only, or both battery and AC? Also, have you looked for the Power Saving Technology setting in the Intel Graphic Properties?

    I am interested to the xps 13 with non-touch 1080p screen but in europe there is only with the glossy QHD+ 3200 x 1800 touch screen.

    How windows and programs work with this high resolution?

    I am afraid to have not a good scaling with too small fonts or crazy program interface.

    Could you confirm that the more used programs like Microsoft Office, Firefox, Foxit PDF reader work well?

    What other programs that you are using work well or not?

    I am also interested to know if SAP is working well.

    THank you

    Hi All, new to the forums - this XPS is on my shortlist, thanks for the good info so far.

    My question: Has anyone tried any audio recording / home studio type tasks? If so have there been any latency / drop out issues?

    Would anyone be willing to monitor the latency using DPC Latency Checker while doing some standard tasks (YouTube / Browsing / Music playback) and post the results back here? I've included an example of what I don't want to see below :eek:

    Thanks,
