Microsoft makes great software – Windows 10 and Office 365 are both exceptional. The company’s hardware, however, is more of a mixed bag. Microsoft’s keyboards, mice, and webcams are often quite good, but its buggy Surface line doesn’t really need to exist anymore.
For example, the Surface Pro is unusable in the lap, while the Surface Duo has been universally reviewed by critics and rejected by consumers. Seriously, Microsoft, you don’t need to compete with your own hardware partners. Dell, HP, Lenovo and others are more than capable.
Earlier today, the Windows maker released the Surface Laptop 4, and while the laptop looks good, you would have to be crazy to buy it. Rather than paying Microsoft for a Surface laptop with buggy firmware and other issues, you should go for the category-leading Dell XPS 13 instead.
Dell’s thin and light laptop is loved by many, including the Linux community. It runs both Windows 10 and Ubuntu brilliantly. And now the very popular laptop is getting a nice new OLED screen option.
“Immerse yourself in your content, movies and games with vivid, lifelike colors on the new 3.5k (3456 x 2160) OLED display option. details especially in dark areas. Wide range of colors
(100% DCI-P3) is more realistic, ideal for content consumption, ”says Dell.
Believe it or not, choosing such a god-level display when setting up your own Dell XPS 13 won’t break the bank – it’s just $ 300 extra. If you can afford to spend the extra cash, it’s a no-brainer. That said, it will be interesting to see the real battery impact that the 3.5k OLED display will have compared to the traditional FHD display.
Do you think a 3.5k (3456 x 2160) OLED display is worth the $ 300 bounty? Please tell me in the comments below.
