Dell XPS 15 review

 

The partial-aluminium casing and Retina-style screen of the Dell XPS 15 prompts inevitable comparison with Apple's MacBook Pro, and its weight and 18 mm thickness are also virtually identical to those of the Apple original. However, the XPS 15 has some...

Battery life is disappointing, especially as the XPS 15 is intended as a lightweight Ultrabook, although as a desktop replacement system it ticks more of the right boxes. It provides outstanding display quality and high-end performance at a competitive...

Dell XPS 15 review:

 

The Dell XPS 15 offers outstanding display quality and high-end performance at a competitive price, in a thin and light case. It takes on the MacBook Pro, and is better in some respects. Read our XPS 15 review to find out why.

REVIEW: Dell XPS 15

 

These days there's a bewildering amount of computing choice – almost too much in fact. There is an army of desktops, all-in-ones, tablets, Ultrabooks, laptops, phablets… Most of us opt for a type of device that suits our lifestyle and budget, but...

Dell XPS 15 review

 

One of the more expensive and powerful Windows 8 laptops

Flawless performance, premium design, great keyboard

Chassis is prone to scratches, trackpad takes a little getting used to

The Dell XPS 15 is by far one of the best laptops we have tested in a long time. It's hard to fault, as its weaknesses - which are few - aren't too significant. For example, the trackpad taking some getting used to will become irrelevant after time,...

Screen is beautiful, but highly reflective.

Lack of ethernet port means native resolution streaming requires 802.11ac supporting router.

Dell XPS 15 (9530)

 

With its brilliant screen and serious components, the luxury-minded Dell XPS 15 (9530) is Dell's showcase PC meant to go up against high-end laptop offerings. Unfortunately, its price and battery life keep it from taking the top spot.

Dell XPS 15 Review: A great laptop gets bigger and a little better

 

It doesn't take a genius to realize that when you hit pay dirt, you might do so again if you keep digging in the same area. That's the tack Dell takes with its redesigned XPS 15 laptop: It's easily summed up as a bigger, more powerful version of the...

Reasonably compact and light ; Class-leading CPU and graphics performance ; Easy to open

Backlight bleeding ; Some models should have optional larger battery available ; Keyboard should be a little larger

Dell XPS 15 Touch (9530)

 

The latest Dell XPS 15 Touch (9530) is a premium desktop-replacement laptop with a refined design, a gorgeous 4K touch screen, and good performance, but it doesn't come cheap.

Sleek, premium design. Impressive 4K touch screen. Soft silicone-covered palm rest. Decent port selection. Solid performance.

Expensive. Battery is not user-accessible, and its performance in testing was average.

Conclusion There's a lot to like about the Dell XPS 15 Touch (9530), from its 4K touch screen to its refined design and premium build quality. If you have a collection of material that takes advantage of the top-notch display, then this laptop might be...
