Dell XPS 13 9310 vs Dell XPS 15 9500: My Initial Thoughts

The Dell XPS line is one line-up series that I have always found myself to be drawn towards. Perhaps the reason for this is because the lineup features some of the lightest laptops as well as some of the best student laptops.

My interest in the Dell XPS 13 9310 and the Dell XPS 15 9500 sparked up even more when I held them in my hands and discovered how light they were. The density of their builds was glaring when I slid them out of their sleek boxes. 

When I ran my fingers across both laptops’ aluminum bodies, I could barely contain my excitement to get started with the comparison. The Dell XPS 15 9500’s beautiful design was an additional fuel for my burning desire to kick start the comparison.

At this point, it is safe to say that Dell has mastered the art of premium ultraportables and the Dell XPS 13 9310 and XPS 15 9500 are evidence of its mastery. Both laptops duly maintain their top standings in the portable laptops hierarchy.

Similarly, both laptops look capable enough to uphold the heritage of their line and their predecessors. The updated hardware of both laptops feature reassures this prediction.

Apart from their hardware specifications, the Dell XPS 13 9310 and Dell XPS 15 9500 also feature other little changes. The small changes collectively add up to what could be seen as big changes in each of the laptops.

For instance, the Dell XPS 13 9310 comes with a bigger keyboard and touchpad, a thinner all-around bezel, and a smaller frame.

Meanwhile, the Dell XPS 15 9500’s size is reduced compared to its predecessor’s. Despite reducing the laptop’s size by 5.5 percent, Dell was able to make its keyboard and touchpad bigger.

The more noticeable change is the improved infinity edge display. Dell has reduced the thick bottom bezel on the laptop, giving you a thinner all-around screen that promises a more immersive viewing experience.

In their respective categories, both laptops are top-notch. Nevertheless, let’s see how both laptops measure up against each other in a direct comparison.

Dell XPS 13 9310 vs Dell XPS 15 9500 Design, Dimension & Weight Comparison

Both the Dell XPS 13 9310 and XPS 15 9500 come delivering the “wow-factor” look that will easily place them side-by-side with other elite laptops. 

It might seem like I’m exaggerating, but believe me when I say both laptops are beautiful enough to challenge even Apple’s MacBook Pro. Both laptops are so beautiful that one could be tempted to buy them just because of their beautiful looks.

Take either of the two laptops into a business meeting and you will be surprised at how quickly they would snatch people’s attention from you. Point is, these laptops look very fitting for professional purposes.

With their CNC-machined aluminum chassis and carbon fiber components, neither of the two laptops feel too different from other laptops in the XPS line. Knowing this, it is only natural that both laptops look very much like their predecessors.

In fact, both laptops are quite identical in terms of their looks. One of the most glaring features both laptops share is Dell’s boundary-pushing InfinityEdge display.

Though I really like the Frost White-colored models, I still don’t see myself picking them over the regular platinum silver and black color scheme models. Despite the fact that the silver lid on both laptops is simple and patternless, they still manage to capture and retain attention.

The only pattern you will find on both laptops’ lids is the laser-cut stainless steel Dell logo in the center that complements the look of both laptops. Both laptops look even more premium because of the reflective touch the Dell logo offers.

Thanks to their beveled edges, the sides of the laptops look shiny and elegant with their lids closed. Open the lid of the platinum silver model, and you will be welcomed by a familiar black carbon fiber deck.

As always, this carbon fiber deck feels soft and generally, very appealing. According to Dell, it also offers high resistance to heat. 

On the other hand, the white version of both laptops comes with a deck made of woven glass fiber. This keyboard deck offers a distinct, trippy texture that you can see and feel. 

According to Dell, It usually comes with a coating that makes it UV and stain-resistant. 

These fiber composite materials also enhance the beauty and elegance of the laptops regardless of the color version you purchase. Also, they make the typing experience on both laptops more comfortable since they usually surround the keyboard and touchpad.

Resting your palm on the fiber is comforting and therapeutic. To an extent, this feeling amends for the small palm rest on the Dell XPS 13 9310.

The small palm rest is the price that Dell had to pay for a larger keyboard layout on the XPS 13 9310. Its chiclet keyboard stretches across the width of the deck, making the key travel on the laptop more adequate. 

As a result, the laptop’s keys are big and are about 9 percent bigger than the keys on its previous model’s keyboard. This improvement makes the keys easier to hit.

The overall typing experience on this laptop felt great. When I took the 10fastfinger typing test, I reached 73 words per minute.

This score exceeded my regular 68 to 70 words per minute. 

In addition to its comfortable keys, the XPS 13 9310’s keyboard also comes with two-stage backlighting which brightens up well. Even on the Frost White model’s white keyboard, the backlighting offers a discernible contrast.

Just like the Dell XPS 13 9310, the XPS 15 9500 features larger keys on its full-sized keyboard. Despite the 9.7 percent larger size, the keys are well spaced and they offer an excellent 1.3mm key travel.

In use, the keyboard on the Dell XPS 15 9500 is an absolute joy to type on. I didn’t feel any discomfort while typing on the laptop and I was able to type 85 words per minute.

Unlike the XPS 13 9310, the XPS 15 9500 has two slim front-firing speakers positioned on opposite sides of its deck. Thankfully, this placement did not affect the keyboard’s layout.

Furthermore, the trackpad on the Dell XPS 13 9310 is also excellent. Though there isn’t enough space for the touchpad to be bigger, the experience of using it is satisfying.

It has a smooth glass surface that makes swiping and gliding easy. Performing Windows 10 gestures such as two-finger scroll, pinch-zoom, and three-finger tap and flick was easy on the  2.5 x 4.4-inch touchpad.

The 5.9 x 3.5 inches touchpad on the Dell XPS 15 9500 isn’t bad either. It was easy for me to navigate websites and documents because of how big and smooth the touchpad is.

Just like with Dell XPS 13 9310, Windows 10 gestures such as three-finger tap and two-finger scrolling were sharp and accurate. 

Despite how clicky the keyboards and the bottom of both laptops’ touchpads were, their decks barely had any flex. Likewise, their lids also feel solid.

Consider the size of both laptops and you will be more stunned by how rigid they feel. The XPS 13 measures 295.7 x 198.7 x 14.8 mm, while the XPS 15 measures 344.72 x 230.14 x 18 mm.

For their measurements, both the Dell XPS 13 9310 and Dell XPS 15 9500 are incredibly light. While the Dell XPS 13 9310 weighs 1200 g, the XPS 15 9500’s weight ranges from 1830 g – 2005 g.

The lightness and compactness of these laptops came at a price. Dell had to equip both laptops with a limited port selection.

You won’t get the trendy USB Type-A ports on the Dell XPS 13 9310. It comes with two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an SD card reader. 

The Dell XPS 15, on the other hand, offers 1 USB Type C 3.1 port,1 HDMI 2.0 port, and 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports. You also get 1 USB-C port, an SD card reader, and a headphone jack.

In terms of design and build, there’s very little to complain about in both laptops. They both look stunning.

Still, the Dell XPS 15 9500 is unarguably the more elegant laptop. It offers more in its compact build – one of them is its better port array.

As a result, the Dell XPS 15 9500 scores a nine in this Dell XPS 13 9310 vs Dell XPS 15 9500 in this design comparison. Meanwhile, the Dell XPS 13 9310 scores an eight.
