One of the perks of working, where I work - is getting to outline the tools and equipment I need for my daily duties. After having repeated issues with an issued HP Probook, I asked for an Ultrabook that would allow me to lighten the load I carry around every day.  I wasn’t sure if they were going to go for it or not… but after requesting a Dell XPS 13, I had it delivered within a week. Changing laptops in mid-work week can be nightmarish, but I managed to move over without many headaches. The laptop is supposed to resemble the Macbook Air in many ways, but it falls short on a number of fronts. 1.) the computer is a little thicker than expected…  it’s got a solid form factor tho’.  2.) the trackpad is D.O.A. -  I recently downloaded some driver updates but for some reason, I can’t seem to get them to work - so little things like 2 finger scrolling just won’t work. 3.) Windows 7, while better than both Vista and XP - blows.   and they quickly delivered me the DELL XPS 13.
