    So do I ask questions here about dell laptops?
  • Mark Spoonauer
    Hi, feel free to fire away. You can ask your question here or feel free to go to the dedicated thread for our Dell Q&A:
  • velo3100
    I have 3 questions.
    1. Why does the dell xps 13 cost so much? I am talking about the non convertible. I ask this as I have always wondered why high end ultrabooks have cost a lot of money when you can't do that much with them.
    2. Why do some of your business line come with only 1 year of warranty and not the standard 2. I forgot the exact models sorry.
    3. Do you plan on bringing more models to the dell insperon 1537 I think the laptop is called. I am talking about the one with the gtx 1050.

    If I come up with more I will ask here.

    MERGED QUESTIONQuestion from aymonitto : "XPS Laptop Specifications"
    Can you provide the full specifications of hardware and operating system of the laptop you want to give away?
  • Guaje
    The picture shows quite a big top margin. Will it have an infinity display? Does pricing come down to a 13 in laptop form-factor with a 15 in display, while looking sleek? Will the camera be at the bottom of the lcd? How about that 13" form factor and 15" screen size on any of your regularly-priced laptop lines? (<$500 with mid-range i7 and 250GB solid-state drive, 16GB RAM?)
  • Adham6124
    What would you suggest as the best way to setup your new laptop for security purposes? What types of software should everyone have? Password protector , browser security, malware, anti-virus, vpn, etc. do you have any specific recommendations - is there a quick and easy fix?
