Dell XPS 15

 

For the last couple of years, the Dell XPS 15 has been the standard-bearer for Windows 10 laptops. With powerful quad-core processors, dedicated graphics and a sub-£2,000 price, this is the machine that takes it to the top-end 15-inch MacBook Pros.

Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 review (2018): a thin, powerful hybrid with genuine gaming chops

 

Dell's XPS 15 2-in-1 just gatecrashed the premium hybrid party

AMD Radeon RX Vega M chip has guts ; Strong benchmark scores across the board ; Luxe aluminium design with 360-degree hinges ; Stunning, nearly bezel-less, Infinity Edge display ; Innovative maglev keyboard

Under full load it runs hot and loud ; Top spec is rather expensive

Dell XPS 15 review

 

The Dell XPS 15 reincarnates itself for a blinding 2012 upgrade

Awesome build quality ; Excellent screen and speakers ; Enough power for gaming

Average battery life ; A bit on the heavy side ; No internal SSD

Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 review

 

Can Intel and AMD on the same chip deliver success to Dell's latest hybrid?

Exceptional Intel and AMD hardware ; 4K touchscreen with great contrast ; Sturdy and good-looking design ; Good keyboard and great trackpad

A little too noisy ; Battery life doesn’t match Dell’s boasts

A powerful, portable and versatile hybrid, but with the price tag to match

Dell XPS 15 L501x review

 

Beneath the aluminium cladding and custom touch sensitive function bar of the latest Dell XPS is one of the new Sandybridge processors from Intel. The new i5 CPU actually performs better than the older i7, and we'll even go as far as to say this is...

Dell XPS 15 (2018) review

 

Big power, little change

Excellent performance ; Decent price ; Great port selection ; Fantastic display

Poor webcam placement ; Middling audio output

The Dell XPS 15 has managed to oust much of its competition in terms of value, especially in 4K media work and in spite of yet another poor webcam position and lackluster audio, earning it TechRadar’s Great Value award.

Dell XPS 15 review: A big screen that stands out in a crowd

 

This excellent high-end 15-inch laptop has powerful components, game-ready graphics and a nearly bezel-free 4K display.

An eye-catching 15-inch 4K display in a nearly bezel-free frame, plus high-end processor and graphics options, all in a slim, professional-looking body.

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.

Dell XPS 15 (9570) review: The 2018 MacBook Pro beater

 

Dell's latest XPS 15 is among the most powerful Windows laptops we've ever tested; and yet it's surprisingly affordable

Incredible performance ; Near-perfect display ; Affordable

Limited battery life ; Awkward camera placement

It’s no surprise then, that the 2018 Dell XPS 15 (9570) gets the 5/5 Best Buy award. As far as I’m concerned, it’s the best laptop money can buy.
