We are about to review XPS 14 series, Dell XPS L401X. We may remind of the previous XPS products which look strong and rigid. And Dell XPS L401X also adopts anodized aluminum top cover. Dell XPS L401X utilizes a 14-inch glossy screen with resolution of 1366 x 768. Though 14-inch Dell XPS L401X hasn’t used full HD screen, the glossy screen delivers better light transmission.

Dell XPS L401x laptop allows you to use Webcam with Skype, provides us audio-visual and gaming experience. So it has contained both chassis and modern style.

Our test unit came with the same i5-460M CPU, GT 420M graphics, and 56Wh Dell XPS L401x battery. Visually, the three XPS laptops are all the same: rounded corners with a silver matte finish, and aluminum palm rests. The design works well enough, though we tend to prefer cleaner lines. However, some of the extra features offered in the XPS 15 were enough that it garnered our Gold Editors’ Choice award—specifically, we liked the combination of a high quality 1080p LCD upgrade, Optimus Technology graphics, and excellent audio. We mentioned in December that the 1080p upgrade had disappeared from the Dell website, but we’re happy to report that the display upgrade is once more back in stock. (You can find it under the “Colors” configuration area—it’s now priced at $195 instead of $130, but the base price has dropped to $799 as opposed to $899 so the final cost with the 1080p display is now under $1000.)

Dell had originally launched the XPS lineup of laptops as Xtreme Performance Systems, targeted specifically at enthusiast gamers and users who needed a portable graphics powerhouse. The Dell XPS L401x AC adapter is one of the finest gaming machines available today. It has a very stylish design and comes with some of the best laptop hardware available. I would definitely recommend it.

Dell XPS L401X sports powerful Intel Core i7 740QM processor, 4GB memory and 500GB hard drive. Besides, XPS L401X also ships with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M graphics card which could support 3D display technology.

for my Dell XPS L401X notebook. His voice is really clear there is no shrill. His voice is also very loud. netbook I wrote that my volume setting to 100% more than its volume of 20% of this notebook. So it really tight. Until my neighbors also heard. Unfortunately there is no subwoofer like the previous version, the Dell XPS 15 at 17.

Connect with your loved ones across the globe in stunning high definition using the internet and XPS L401X’s HD Webcam. It’s the first Webcam to offer HD video streaming for ultra-clear 720p resolution. The extreme flexibility of the new XPS also enables you to record video using different bit rates, depending on the application you use.

The design is nice but one could argue that Apple/Mac have set the bar. I can say it looks current and could appeal to business and pleasure users. I like the look more than the Toshiba models we were looking at (with lighted kb). Not as good as the Alienware touchpad but still decent. No complaints other than I find the buttons a bit small for the footprint this system has.

Measuring just shy of 14 inches wide, the Dell XPS L401X isn’t much larger than a netbook, but the sum of its parts add up to a heck of a lot more machine. And at less than five and a half pounds, you don’t need to be a gym rat to tote this sucker around. At a glance, the only thing we can really gripe about right off the bat is lack of USB 3.0 support, but even that’s a bit of a stretch at this point.

Dell XPS L401X is equipped with 56Wh lithium ion battery. Through the evaluation of Windows 7, it lasts for 2 hours and 21 minutes in energy-saving mode. If in the condition of high-definition video playback, the HP PR08 battery can last about an hour.
