    What you mean? Fan noise?
    X1E also little bit quieter than the XPS 15.
    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenov...x-Q-Laptop-Review.335608.0.html#toc-emissions

    In overall XPS 15:
    1. Cheaper
    2. Have better battery life
    3. Brighter displays

    But X1E have:
    1. 2*m.2 slots with RAID support
    2. 2*Thunderbolt 3 vs 1
    3. LAN port, with dongle, but better than nothing
    4. Little bit better cooling and performance and quieter at the same time
    5. Equipped with faster SSD's (Only very lucky ones getting fast Samsung in XPS15)
    6. More durable with MIL-STD 810G sertification and spill resistant keyboard
    7. 3 Year warranty
    8. Personally, I like ThinkPad keyboard typing experience better than XPS15
    9. Not deal breaker for me, but many users prefer to have Track Point
    10. Also not deal breaker for, but 64GB RAM support can be important for someone

    Does anyone know if the screen is edge to edge glass on the 1080p model? On the Dell, only the 4K option was a glass edge to edge screen.

    No, screen shots for FHD and 4K both show a bezel all the way around, thinner on the sides, thicker on the bottom (in particular) and the top.

    So the screen has a plastic bezel around it? Not a glass one for both the 1080p and 4K? That is annoying, a lot of new notebooks are edge to edge glass..

    Although a 4K, mine arrives day after tomorrow and I'll follow up and confirm.

    Glass means glossy and reflections, lots of people like me prefer matte displays and less or non reflections.
