Has any one used a 13.3in 1080p laptop at 100% scaling in Windows? Are thing too small or hard to read?

I'm considering something like the XPS 13 but I have some things that require me to use 100% scaling. This will be for systems admin work over remote desktop.

Personally, I found text too small on a 13" 1080p screen, and sent a laptop back to Dell a while back for that reason.

If you've got a Best Buy or somewhere with laptops in stock (even a Walmart, maybe), I'd highly recommend checking it out in person first, save the trouble of a return.

I thought 1080p on a 14inch was borderline at 100%. But I don't have 20/20 and wear glasses.

It's too small IMO. Unless you like your face right up to the screen. 125% scaling in windows works perfectly fine for most things. Some programs don't like it.

I love 100% scaling for 1080p @ 13.3. It's definitely my ideal resolution/dpi for a laptop sitting 3ish feet away.

I'm using your exact requirements, and it's fine. Text is crisp and looks good.
