I love my Dell XPS13. It’s by far my favorite machine ?that Dell has created. Prior to the acquisition of Compellent by Dell, I regularly used a MacBook Pro as my primary machine for both home and work. I like using the Mac OS, but I found the hardware to be my favorite. Battery life was better than most PC notebooks I had used, and "things just worked." Although I used a Mac, most of my work was with Windows applications so I either made use of Parallels or VMware Fusion. I had gotten used to the MacBook Pro trackpad and the use of gestures. Being able to scroll with two fingers, click with one finger, or right-click with a two finger tap. It made the trackpad much more enjoyable to use.
