Dell XPS 13 Review Part Deux

Last week I shared how the Dell XPS 13 ultrabook measures up to what moms really want in a laptop. Although I think I got it mostly right, I have to admit – my post was a lil’ biased because it was based on my experiences as a working mom and my business needs.

Ok, maybe a little less keeping children alive and more social media, too. When people ask me what I do all day, I usually give the same answer: I sit in front of a computer all day.
