Dell XPS13 Reliability


I'm just about to pull the trigger and upgrade to an XPS 13 (8th Gen i5). I need a new laptop and it seems to tick most of the boxes.

Not at all concerned about the webcam (Have never used it on my current laptop), and I'm perfectly ok with the design and weight. I love how it has an SD card slot, and I'm not bothered with a 2 lane thunderbolt (Don't plan on hooking it up to an eGPU).

However, I was wondering about the long term reliability, especially any overheating issues that might show up over time. For people who've owned an XPS13 for a year or more, how's the reliability been?
