In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Health-Guard

Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

Ultimately, last year, we were mesmerized by the screen-to-body ratio of the laptop, putting the MacBooks of this world to sleep. This year, there is a very little-to-no change in the design, which is not necessarily a bad thing. You are still getting the optional IR face recognition sensors, as well as the fingerprint reader inside of the [...]

Disassembly, maintenance and upgrade options

Lately, the XPS 13 is considered the main competitor to the MacBook Pros. However, it is now barely catching up to the MacBook Air, thanks to Apple's new in-house chips. And while the upgradability is not a really strong point of the XPS 13, it still provides some possibilities thanks to the single M.2 storage slot.
