Hi Martin,

I'm a happy user of Dell XPS 13 which I recommend (I have the edition
with Skylake CPU, no touch-screen). That said I still experience
problems related to my GPU: for example I can't use VLC to play video
media (Xvideo extension doesn't work), but I use mplayer
instead. There is BCM3450 in my laptop, but I heard that XPSes bought
in Europe have Intel cards.

Despite small problems (most of them fixed in the recent
kernel/x11/mesa releases), my experience is close to perfect. I had
Dells at my previous work too and was always a happy user.
