  • We were expecting to be impressed by the big, beautiful Dell XPS 15 and it didn't let us down. Not only is it powerful, it's also made from high-grade materials that just feel great. This is the first high-powered laptop that we think provides a great W...

  • Abstract:  Dell's new XPS 15 is a formidable machine, and it's looking to take the fight to Apple's MacBook Pro for a larger slice of the lucrative high-end laptop market.However, Apple has a reputation for leaving a long time between new versions of its flagship...

  • Premium look and feel, Stellar 4K InfinityEdge display, Core i7, SSD, DDR4 is a potent mix, GTX 960M has some gaming potential, Comfortable keyboard and trackpad, Keeps quiet during everyday use
  • Disappointing battery life, 4K upgrade is pricey, Webcam position not ideal
  • How do you go about making the ultimate 15in Windows laptop? For Dell, the formula turned out to be disarmingly simple: take the smaller XPS 13, make it bigger, add a discrete GPU and a gorgeous 4K display, and Bob's your uncle.The resulting XPS 15 is...

  • The XPS has the best screen on the market, powerful hardware suitable for nearly any task, good thermals, is upgradeable, and futureproofed by the inclusion of a Thunderbolt 3 port.
  • The Broadcom WLAN card is currently a broken mess, there are occasional issues like BSODs or disappearing wireless cards that hurt reliability, the battery life only just reaches “acceptable” levels with a 6cell battery, and it's expensive
  • The XPS 15 9550 has an unrivaled screen, fast hardware, and a killer design. But 5 months after its launch, it seems we're all still Dell's beta testers. This article reviews the XPS 15 9550 and tallies up the issues that haven't gone away...

  • Camera at bottom of screen, making angle odd, Keyboard feels a little flimsy for such a high spec machine
  • This top end laptop is one to buy if you want a great touchscreen and powerful performance. It's not the most affordable or lightweight, though, and some might miss having a CD/DVD drive...

  • Excellent battery life, Decent gaming performance for a 15in notebook, Futureproofed 16GB of memory, Great 4K touch screen, Fast, capacious NVMe SSD for primary storage, Light 2kg chassis, Thunderbolt 3 port
  • Faster 15in gaming notebooks are available, Merely decent everyday performance, No builtin wired networking.
  • The Dell XPS 15 doesn't quite live up to the prestigious all-conquering history of some of the first, massive 17in XPS models. It won't provide you with a near-desktop level of gaming performance in a portable package.The lack of built-in wired networking...

  • The better configurations can cost a lot, while the keyboard could be bigger and the touchpad has a floaty feel
  • The Dell XPS 15 is a premium-feeling 4K laptop that outdoes the MacBook Pro in several categories. Its bezel-free design should be the gold standard going forward...
