However, many of you asked for my personal feedback on the XPS 9350, especially after reading my posts on the XPS 9343 (the initial review and the follow-up). I bought the XPS 13 9343 in January 2015 and I’ve been using it as my main ultraportable ever since. Dell later updated the series to the XPS 13 9350 model, upgrading it to Intel Skylake hardware, bumping the battery size by about 10% and adding a Thunderbolt 3 port. But the chassis, the keyboard, the screens and many other aspects remained identical.
