I am sorry that I don't have AMEX card, but you could look for the poster of #33 and ask him/her.

New Dell XPS 13 officially confirmed with Intel Tiger Lake processor

According to an article on Laptopmag Dell XPS 13 and XPS 13 2-in-1 are expected to arrive before the end of the year.

IMO, package is fantastic except for the processor.

I wonder what its real endurance on battery is.

If my memory is correct, amex offer will expire at the end of september. That mean if the laptop is shipped in october, card will be charged after expiry date of the offer. Dell.ca charge the card when shipping.

Very good point! I believe you're correct. I didn't consider the "Ships in 10–13 business days".

Thanks. Even if I cost in the upgraded touch panel and Windows license this comes to around the same price I paid for the Surface 3 from Costco, but gets a better process and more ram and only 1 year less warranty. I feel like I'm going to be too lazy to cancel the Surface 3 and get this but I'll certainly have to think about it.

Is it possible to get a student discount with this deal? If so, how do I get a Unisys code for this?

I activated the 8% Dell Technologies for Work cashback promo from the rakuten extension, it says it's active, and when I go to checkout, the extension flashes for the 2% cashback bonus and the 8% cashback is no longer shown. How can I know for sure that the 8% cashback is active??

Personally, I would pass on this older 16:9 model. The newer 16:10 model is much nicer resolution to work on in my opinion.

I paid $1,500USD for the same model in October 2019, but with higher specs:

  • i7-10710U (6-core at 1.1GHz base, 4.6GHz boost, perfect for a productivity laptop IMO)
  • 4k touch screen
  • 1TB SSD
  • 16GB RAM

I wouldn't advise getting just 8GB of RAM either. You will end up swapping when having a bunch of browser tabs open. 32GB is overkill unless you want to run VMs locally.

FYI the only difference as far as I'm aware with the Developer Edition is the lack of a fingerprint reader. A stock Windows 10 installer works fine, drivers are automatically installed.

I've lost slightly less than 15% over the past year of ownership. Not great, not terrible either.

I totally agree. I have last year's model (XPS 9380) and when I saw the new one had a 16:10 screen I wanted one. Maybe Dell will have a BF/CM doorcrasher with the specs I would want in order to tempt me to buy one.
