New Dell XPS 13: Is it worth sacrificing battery life to save 200 dollars?)



I have a tad of a conundrum about a laptop that I have ordered. Costco currently has a great deal on the new generation of Dell XPS 13 where one can get the UHD+ version for 200 dollars less than the FHD+ version with the exact same specs in every other way (i7, 1 TB SSD, 16 GB RAM, a pretty well stacked machine). If it was not for this sale I would be buying the FHD+ version as I know that the battery life would be better and UHD is not necessary on a 13 (or even 15) inch laptop. I guess my question is this. Do you think other than battery life there would be any negatives to having the 4K version of this laptop from a performance perspective? I am aware that some applications may have scaling issues, but I am prepared for that (and it is probably unlikely with the applications that I use).

Thank you,
