[Corion]: 1nickt: I bought a 2015 XPS 13, which is a very nice and shiney (and somewhat overpriced) machine, but I think it's still better priced than an Apple machine. Now it just has to hold up 10 years like the old one did ;)
[1nickt]: Ah, you got Linus' fave? With Ubuntu? 4k display?
[1nickt]: ( The 17" monster I just bought is for my wife, who doesn;t leave the house with it...)
[Corion]: 1nickt: No, I'm using it with Windows 10, but with the 4k display, yes. It's a very nice build IMO, and relatively sturdy. Also, it got 8 or 9 on the ifixit repair scale, which I consider good
[Corion]: ... especially as I expect to have to replace the battery set in two or three years' time
