That 1 month I traded my MacBook for a Dell XPS!


Well I did it! 
I replaced my MacBook laptop with the Dell XPS UltraBook for 1 month! And drumroll please…I loved it. As I mentioned in my last post, I was extremely hesitant because I have used Mac products for so long. But this laptop was great. It did take some time to get used to using the Windows OS, especially after so long with a Mac. But it wasn't anything that I couldn't figure out and for most things, it was relatively seamless. 

My two absolute favorite parts: it's so lightweight and it's a touchscreen!
I seriously took this thing everywhere with me. It felt like I had not only replaced my MacBook but also my iPad as well. In fact, it was so portable that it could easily switch between both functions. I use my larger iPad mostly to watch YouTube and Netflix and this was perfect for that. The screen was so clear. 
For about 2 weeks of March I was majorly sick and this Dell UltraBook was a life saver. I got all my work done from bed, plus got to sneak in the aforementioned Netflix too ;) 

You guys know, I absolutely NEVER share anything that I'm not 100% in love with it….whether it's gifted to me or not. But if you guys are in the market for a new laptop, I highly suggest this Dell XPS! It's so highly functional and beautiful, it's a win win. If you're a Mac girl like me, don't let this Windows-based laptop scare you. The transition is a piece of cake. 
I'd love to know your thoughts if you have one of these laptops. Or if you made the switch from a Mac to Windows-based computer. Any tips and tricks I should know? 
Even though my 1 month is over, I have full intentions of still continuing to use my laptop. I could never give up the ease of portability!
XOXO

ps- I've had SO MANY questions about how I integrate my paper organization and planning (through my Louis Vuitton agenda pictured above) with technology. So stay tuned, that YouTube video is coming soon! In the meantime, if you want a closer look at any of my paper systems, you can check out my YouTube channel! :) xx
