The XPS 13's M.2 SSD is quick on its feet, and in real life, you wouldn't notice the difference between the Toshiba M.2 drive Dell uses and the Samsung based drives many other vendors use.
Network performance of the Killer Wireless AC card is very good, better than Intel in many cases.
Dell claims the XPS 13 has the best battery life around, and our tests do have the XPS 13 topping our charts. Dell claims close to 11 hours of life; I got almost 10 hours in light load scenarios. Of course, it's easy to drain that battery more quickly through battery specific benchmarks such as BatteryEater and PCMark Home Battery Test, and the XPS 13 beats the ThinkPad X1 Yoga in PCMark Home Battery life, but not in Battery Eater.
Overall, battery life is excellent, this isn't a notebook you will always have to plug in.
