Don't know is this helps you but hands on experience for me...
I have the UX305FA (Core M 5y10c) and my brother has the Dell XPS 13 9343 (Core I5 5200U), the rest of the specs are pretty much the same, 256GB SSD, 8GB ram, AC wireless (Intel AC 7265 vs some crappy Dell one), Full HD 1080p... pretty much same specs except the CPU.
Price at the time for purchase for us: $900 for the UX305 and $1400 for the Dell. (In CAD)
Maybe I'm just a heavy user but I've found that the Core M can't even run Youtube @ 1080P 60fps... what a shame.. and good point about the backlit keyboard. Just can't complain about it when it's priced as it is. Also, another major thing is that the hinge on the UX305 was rather flimsy (shaking the ultrabook would move the screen) and the XPS hinge was pretty stiff, but broken in its pretty nice to use.
