The Portable Workstation: Coupling Dell's XPS 13 Ultraportable with the 32" UltraSharp UP3216Q 4K Monitor

I ve stuck with this arrangement for a few years now, sitting patiently on the sidelines as the display industry slowly transitioned from full HD displays 1,920 x 1,080 to Quad HD 2,560 x 1,440 and most recently 4K 3,840 x 2,160 and above.

It seemed plausible on paper considering a 4K monitor has four times as many pixels as a Full HD display, but I had a long list of concerns and questions.

Measuring 31.5 inches diagonally with a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 @ 60Hz, this display was already high on my list of potential candidates so the timing couldn t have been better.

Dell s proposition wasn t simply to review the UltraSharp UP3216Q although a standalone review is in the works but rather, evaluate its performance and value as part of a larger package that just so happened to address the one area on my path to optimal productivity that I hadn t yet mastered: portability.

Along with the monitor, Dell sent over their excellent XPS 13 ultraportable notebook – the same one we reviewed earlier this year albeit with a larger 1TB solid state drive.

With some hands-on time now under my belt, I can certainly see why Tim and other members of our staff like it so much.
