Then he recommends a consumer level Dell... The X1 Carbon would actually be my main recommendation but you decided to fixate on the Air. The X1 Carbon is nearly flawless. I own two of them. One is 7 years old. Still works perfectly. Even after getting bashed on by a toddler and dogs. Dell is trash other than their professional monitors. Their consumer level stuff belongs in a dumpster. Shitty parts and build quality, poor design, and nonexistent service and support. JFL at recommending a consumer level ultrabook from them with how hard ultrabooks are for the end user to repair. May as well just burn your $1000+. https://www.dell.com/community/XPS/Problems-with-XPS-13-2020-9300/td-p/7512905 Page after page of people going through replacement after replacement of the XPS13. And those are the ones who could even get Dell to help them at all.
