    I use the spyder as well. I need to have color accuracy for designing motorcycles, and coming out with the correct color schemes that I photograph from the existing bike etc...

    Well I got my xps 15 late last week. Used it throughout the weekend. I boxed it up and returned it. The only reason I did this, it's just to big of a deivce for what I want. I travel a lot, and need a compact device. I thought it would be ok, but compared to my inspiron 2 in 1 its just too big. So, I am going to place the order for the xps 13 2 in 1 in the maxed out configuration to take the xps 15's place. The perfect device for me.

    Lol forgot I made the cricket club because I proved Kojack wrong.

    Anyway I have a inspiron 7373 and the 9575 wasn't much bigger than it, weighed more but that's about it.

    It's only 0.4kg lighter than my 17" MSI Raider with desktop graphics. Definitely a heavy computer but its size is still right for my travel. The benefit of larger screen real estate is a massive win by comparison to the slight weight difference even comparing it to the 13 2 in 1. The downside there of course is the inability to do light gaming. Either way, everyones needs will be different

    Sadly the XPS 9365 2-in-1 is a real dog. The CPU is ultra low power (slower than my i5-5300u) and the battery life still sucks. Dell really needs to redesign it. The only things I liked about mine were the screen and the size, other than that I wasn't impressed at all.

    Definitely the worst product in the XPS lineup atm.

    I just find the 13" device the perfect size for me. Big enough to edit photos and videos on somewhat comfortably, but still able to pack light in my expedition rig, plane, motorcycle etc.

    I just hope that editing videos is a very once and a while thing, unless you've got all the time in the world, lol.

    Adobe RGB 97%
    NTSC 94%
    sRGB 100%

    Monitor was slightly cool upon arrival. Thunderbolt works fantastic with external GPU. Toshiba NVMe SSD in my unit, so I'll have to monitor it. Spacebar is the only key that is off feeling slightly.
