dell xps or lenovo thinkpad

We put the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 14" (Intel) to the test against the Dell XPS 13 to find out which laptop is best for you. The Dell XPS 15 does win in terms of the storage and RAM you can get out of the box though. You can configure the XPS 15 with up to 64GB of RAM. The XPS 13 lasts longer on a charge than the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the difference is pretty significant. The Dell lasted for 12 hours and OLIVIA ADDAMS January 25, Retrieved. It is designed consistent and measurable lots of errors. When the TopLink find a means Java-based build tool, you can use at the bottom iPhone or iPad.

For me, personally, the fact that people would always be thinking my laptop was a macbook wouldn't sit right with me. To each his own I guess. As I've written here in the past, I very much dislike tech that doesn't look really beautiful. That's why I've never considered all of the Lenovo products other than the Yoga series.

From the design to the name of it, the Huawei has truly copied Apple. To me that's perfectly fine because a year ago, I was wishing someone other than HP with the x line, would make an ultrabook as beautiful and thin as a Macbook. They've granted me my wish. Excellent review — really good to read a proper hands on instead of just specs and lab testing. I'd been favouring the X1, but the poor quality of their FHD screens seems to be a real problem.

I thought I would mind a smaller screen as well, but to be honest it's. Once upon a time, That couple of pounds, really does make a difference when its frequent and for more than a few minutes at a time. Too bad all of the less than 3 lbs 15 inch laptops, are all underpowered and have no option above p displays. I miss the Great comparison. The X1 Carbon is an amazing computer but my qualms were only hours of battery, terrible speakers, got hot to the touch when plugged in or basically did anything, terrible finger print reader, trackpad was a tad too small, backlit keyboard had to be manually be activated, very dim FHD screen, and the pretty poor quality paint job.

So anyone who has bought anything from Costco knows that they have a killer return policy. I went to the store and the customer service rep didn't even ask me what was wrong with the computer but just asked me to assist her in finding the serial number. I was hoping to just exchange the laptop for a new one but the rep said I could only return it and then buy a new one. The tiny footprint of the for me is a plus. Now this does effect battery life but I am still getting the same hours of battery I was getting on my X1 Carbon, but just with a much better screen.

So the dongle life on the isn't terrible considering I once owned a Macbook 13" Non TB which only had two ports, plus Dell does provide a USB-C to legacy port adapter which is something Apple would never do. Honestly I mainly use my laptops as mainly as glorified netbooks and my desktop is my real workhorse, so on my laptop I am mainly surfing the web, using Office, or watching video so traditional USB ports and SD card readers aren't needed.

The X1 Carbon really ran at the same temps as the , but the XPS does a much better job in shielding you from the heat and keeping the fans silent. So which computer is better? Both are awesome computers and if you are a ThinkPad loyalist the X1 is the current halo devise but if you don't care about or for the ThinkPad brand then the cheaper which arguably gives you more for the money is an awesome computer that does many of the little things better than the X1.

Interesting to hear about your experience! Sounds like it parallels mine in some ways. Are you sure it doesn't have a fingerprint sensor? It's integrated into the power button. Check device manager and you should see a Goodix fp sensor. You kept the X1 Carbon? The paint peeling is pretty infuriating. Did your paint job get worse? That's strange — I really thought all of them would have the fingerprint sensor. I sold the x1 carbon and kept the xps 13 — I was just miffed at how much trouble I had with it during the first month, and the paint peeling didn't lend me any confidence.

I previously had a XPS and I was pretty careful with that and it was pretty pristine after a year only with some light scratching on the chamfered edges which is almost to be expected. Sad since my 1st ever ThinkPad T40 had zero scratches and lasted through 4 years of college and that thing took many tumbles.

The heat issues is something that is more mind boggling since no reviews positive or negative bring it up, but even after BIOS updates the computer gets warm, and simply toasty when plugged in. The double fan Gore solution is simply a better. Really nice article! I'm on the market for a new laptop and narrowed my choices to Latitude and XPS and can't decide between them. What I've read so far people experience different issues with both models.

Any suggestions? But, it will be less fast at sustained loads. I ordered the Lenovo Carbon X1 with high end specs on Lenovo. Are they marketing these units when they don't have supply? Yeah this is a huge problem. Amazing deal but they quote 3 weeks for shipping and have no expedited shipping option. I have heard countless stories were people's X1's were furthermore massively delayed. LTE would be nice but again I probably wouldn't use it since I would need to buy monthly service for it when mainly I use my laptop at home.

W10P again is a nice but best used for visualize machine use which I don't need, but if I want to get W10P it's pretty easy to get a serial on Ebay for cheap. Simply put go 2K HDR screen or bust, but this seems the part Lenovo is most back ordered on constantly! Excellent review, thanks a lot. I had both of them on my radar. I am an engineering student looking to buy the 4k xps 13 , 8gb, SSD, i5. I know it might have a shorter battery but I can get a good deal on it as of now. I would like to ask if there will be any comparison between x1 carbon and x, since it appears to be be almost similar in spec.

I just got the XPS from costco and I've had a terrible experience. The fan sounds like a helicopter it was so loud that my wife said she couldnt sleep it was so loud. I might have a defective unit. Im torn between the X1 and XPS. The X1 is a bit more comfortable but the XPS has the primo display. Wow, that is quite a lot of technical differences. I'm thinking to go for xps13 , but the coil whine issues and helicopter sound of fan from many forums have made me struggled alot.

I'm not sure if those comments are mainly from north America as they have different model…? Any above mentioned issues bothering you? I didn't experience either of those issues. My issue was that the fan would wait until temps are too high before turning on. Great review for both systems that I just recently bought one for me and the other for my wife.

I've been a Dell fanboy for a long time so decided to venture outside my realm and try the Lenovo X1 FHD x display. I don't know how much time I actually get out of the battery because it is typically use it for a while, shut the lid and come back to it later.

The problem is the springy experience of the keyboard is something I have been getting used to using. X1 is not horrible to use and I'm getting used to it every day. On the positive note for the "Fn" key, it allows me to switch on or off the keyboard back-light easily. She is used to the touchscreen so I got that one for her, but that's not my cup of tea. I personally prefer no touchscreen even though my Precision is touchscreen company system so I did not have a choice.

I agree the X1 fingerprint scanner is pretty lousy, but I have gotten used to it by taking my time to place my finger on the scanner properly. My older XPS 15 that had a finger print scanner just swiped and unlocked immediately every time. The XPS 13 4K screen obviously blows away the X1 FHD x display, but being that the screen is so small in the first place it was not a killer feature to me.

My Dell Precision is 4K and I feel that's overkill for me too. I was not interested in configuring it so I turned it off and just configured the fingerprint authentication for her system. It's much more accurate than the X1 and feels high quality. In any case, I like the lightweight of the X1… totally awesome.

Oh, one thing I do hate about the X Overall, the lightweight, 14" screen size, small portable thin design, decent keyboard getting used to it , sufficient ports, i7 proc, 16 GB mem and GB… compatible with my Dell USB-C to Ethernet adapter… enough for me to favor it over the XPS I barely know I'm carrying the X1 laptop it's so light.

I have not experienced any noise issues, but I don't game or do any graphic intensive stuff on this laptop my wife does neither with her XPS Both X1 and XPS 13 feels pretty high quality for the most part. I was hesitant to shrink down from a 15" system to a 13" system, but I find X1's 14" screen dimension to be usable. The 15" systems I own are not systems that you could just throw into a backpack and go.

You're very welcome! I believe the FHD display is actually more accurate than the UHD, and the battery life and cost decrease are great benefits. Thanks for the review! Im still kinda torn between the two tbh, Im either going for the XPS 13 with 4k screen or X1 Carbon with wqhd nits hdr screen. Im using it in college for coding and lightroom for personal hobby. Which do you think would be a better choice? I would push you towards the X1C.

The keyboard is the cincher for a coder. Your fingers will thank you. Thanks for the fast reply! I'll try to drop the order this week : Really appreciate it haha.. Would the heat from the X1C cause an annoyance to type on tho? I don't think the heat is an issue unless you are crunching data OR charging it. Ohh okayy! Thanks for the help! I was literally bugged at choosing between these 2 for about 2 weeks already haha… I think Im gonna love the X1C hopefully haha.

Great Review Douglas, Has anything changed since the initial review? Have you had a chance to see the X1C with the i and hdr wqhd display? Looks like the x1c is now available with an u processor as well. Any chance you could post a side-by-side pic of the x1c and xps 13 for a size comparison?

Unfortunately I don't have either machine still. At this point, I'd recommend waiting for the next model. The x1c gen6 had a fair amount of niggles, and the xps 13 has design issues. Next xps will likely use low wattage displays, whisky lake, and a camera above the display. X1c7 will have whisky lake at least and probably improved construction. The battery drainage and fan usage was addressed in a bios update many months ago. Did you have the X1 in sleep mode a lot? Sleep mode was a huge cause of battery drainage which has been fixed.

I think cooling improved a bit too, don't quote me on that. Dan Dascalescu. Even if you only listen to podcasts, the X1C sounds tinny and crappy compared to other laptops. To get the touchpad to work reliably on Ubuntu, you have to disable the TrackPoint. There are long threads about this on the Lenovo forums, with no solution. The network card also stops working a few minutes after resuming from standby, but that's fixable with one command that reconfigures its power management.

Also, the battery life on Linux is pretty great. The vast majority of the time, the system is silent. I bought that one and the paint job is impeccable. Great article! To be honest, I don't recommend buying any laptops in HK. It's very expensive here. Where do you live?

I live in Brazil. Laptops here are way too expensive. What about buying laptops in Shenzhen? Is it better? China will be worse due to import taxes. HK will be better, then. Sham Shui Po golden computer Centre will be your best bet.

Good review, but I'm still in a deadlock choosing between the two machines. I do prefer the 14" display on the X1 and the keyboard, but one of my main concern is Linux support and there Dell XPS 13 seems to be the winner. Looking through the Lenovo forums the X1 is having issues regarding battery life and performance, though updates to the bios has been released to address these. That said, you can definitely tweak your system to your own specifications but the XPS 13 provides more of an out of the box support.

Not very happy reading about the keyboard issue with Dell, both here and on the Dell forum, and it's difficult say if the problem has been fixed with their new bios update. All in all I would probably go for another Dell Latitude, the last one has served me well for many years, but at its current price it is not an option.

Great review! It helps me to make up my mind. I think I will go for XPS Do you think I should go for i7 or i5 with all other specs similar? If the i5 is a couple hundred cheaper, then get it. If it isn't too much cheaper then the i7 may be worth it, especially if it has 16gb ram. I think the main thing not to get is the touch screen, which kills the battery life. I have up doubt dell has changed the temperature sensor for the fans.

It seemed to be deliberate on their part. Runs like a dream. Keyboard is beyond great to type on. Screen was way to small, but the keyboard was good, improved over the years. I purchase a new laptop about every 6 months to try them out and have to say that XPS is good, but not my style. If you haven't tried one, DO IT! Further more the fan produced are terrible high pitched sound, which other uses have noticed too.

One produced the terrible high pitched sound while the other one didn't. You can also see it in our diagram below sharp peak at lower-highs. The two fan speeds are not loud at I urge everyone to read this article by toms hardware. I didn't know that Lenovo uses so many different suppliers, which means that your Carbon X1 is very likely not to have the same screen, keyboard, fan or something else than me or a reviewer.

There is a link in the article where you can see the different suppliers of the same parts for the X16G. I had a Lenovo technician for on-site repair to look at the high pitched sound and he was beyond clueless. He didn't know anything about different fans, he brought a fan from the same supplier and said "that is all I can do". The replacement fan was a bit twisted in the end but he sort of fixed that with his fingers and thought it was fine.

Off the fan and heat spreader went and on the replacement fan came on. Then he turned it on and said "well I can't hear a thing", and I was flabbergasted. The fan wasn't spinning up since the CPU hadn't reached a high enough temperature for the fan to kick in, yet he concluded that it was fixed. I explained this to him and my girlfriend asked if we shouldn't test it to make sure that it was fine, but he said he couldn't do more.

I couldn't bother with the incompetence, so I talked to the shop and had them take it back after I explained the situation. Another deal breaker for me is the terrible rating Lenovo receive on Trustpilot in my country Denmark , and other countries I checked. Reading the reviews it's clear that many things don't work at all when it comes to their repair service.

My own experience with on-site repair didn't leave me confident in Lenovos service ability. I really wanted to like the X1G6 but I don't think I'll try another one. I realize that all models have their quirks but it just have been such a disappointed experience that I feel like trying something else. On top of the fan producing a high pitched noise, I was severely disappointed at the speakers.

My cheap Huawei smartphone has way better speakers than the X1G6. The trackpad is tiny, and the trackpoint is not the same trackpoint from older Lenovo models. The fn and ctrl keys are swapped which is quite annoying for me personally, although they can be swapped in the bios or in Lenovo vantage. The screen is very dim and lacks nits, even at full brightness. Having experienced the 2nd and 3rd gen X1s too I doubt it is going to happen though. I tried both and to be honest i'm not that impressed coming from the Lenovo ts into the newer lenovos.

Lenovo has a great 'right to repair' i can fix things myself which is very nice. Replacing single keys in many Lenovo lines is no longer easy or possible. They are made of plastic parts that bend and rip and can't take stress over itme. In fact Lenovo's chassis has hardly changed in the last TEN years.

A danish poster above also brought up a VERY valid point: reputation. Lenovo Huawei and Oneplus Chinese have been known in recent years to cheat and lie about their specs. A lot of the reviews seem fake. I bought the To replace the keyboard I will have to remove the heatsink, so hopefully it never comes to that day. I was believed on the carbon fiber material is the good and should be a good choice, but I was wrong and now I getting the issue with scratch on my laptop's body.

Here is what I've noticed. I leave in a place with very bad access to the net. A few days ago my neighbour let me use his WIFI to access to the net he leaves around 80 meters from me.
