Dell Studio XPS 16 with RGB LED Display

 

A 16in, Full HD, RGB LED display is the undoubted highlight of this multimedia powerhouse.

We can't recommend the Dell Studio XPS 16 to everyone because HP's HDX 16 offers a similar feature set at a keener price. However, if you've been hankering after a notebook with desktop quality colour fidelity, then it makes a tantalising proposition -...

Dell Studio XPS 16 review

 

Dell's Studio XPS 16 looks attractive and has some desirable features, but its spongy keyboard is a disappointment.

Dell Studio XPS 16 review

 

The Dell Studio XPS line emphasizes style without sacrificing functionality. These multimedia laptops have a bit of leather trim here, a backlit keyboard there - and a whole lot of plugs, ports, and features packed in.

Dell's Studio XPS 16 is squarely aimed at people who want to get a little more for their entertainment buck; it's a solidly built multimedia machine that piles on features without breaking the bank. Dell's Studio XPS 16 looks to be a solid choice for...

Dell Studio XPS 16

 

Dell's Studio XPS laptops really do underscore design leadership. Sure there are those who believe the only laptop to own is a MacBook, but for those in the market for a Windows-based multimedia machine, Dell (and Sony) is pressing all the right...

The Studio XPS 16 and Studio XPS 13 are Dell’s first Studio laptops to bear the XPS high-performance designation. The Studio XPS 16 is a laptop with a – you’ve guessed it – 16-inch screen. If you don’t need that amount of real estate, the Studio XPS 13...

Dell Studio XPS 16 review: Dell Studio XPS 16

 

Dell Studio XPS 16

Dell embraces the 16:9 aspect ratio display; upscale design with leather trim; backlit keyboard and edge-to-edge screen glass.

The 1080p display costs extra; unimpressive battery life; new Studio XPS brand may get lost between the Inspiron, Studio, and XPS lines.

Dell's new 16:9 Studio XPS 16 adds upscale extras such as a leather trim and a backlit keyboard to a fairly standard set of components, without jacking up the price (too much).

Dell Studio XPS 16

 

The XPS 16's keyboard is a departure from that of the XPS M1530. The keys adjoin each other at the surface, raised to the same level, whereas the M1530 has detectable grooves between each key. Either keyboard will accommodate a speedy touch typist or a...

Strikingly gorgeous design. Blu-ray reader included. Vibrant RGB LED 16-inch widescreen. Excellent 1080p resolution. Illuminated keyboard. HDMI and DisplayPort technologies. WWAN options. Good graphics card. High-capacity battery is available

Could be lighter

The Dell Studio XPS 16 delivers a lavish media center experience with a unique design, home-theater features, and a vibrant RGB LED widescreen.
