Dell XPS 15 review

 

Jack of all trades, master of some

Gorgeous 4K display ; Blazing fast CPU ; Much improved battery ; Legacy ports still at play

Middling graphics ; Poor webcam placement ; Bloatware

While no laptop can be proficient in every area, the Dell XPS 15 makes a valiant effort to accomplish just that. With the exception of playing games, Dell has proven once again that it can build a laptop that appeals to (almost) everyone.

Dell XPS 15 2017 9560 (7300HQ, Full-HD) Notebook Review

 

Everything will be good?! Dell refreshes its XPS 15 with the latest Kaby Lake processors and a GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card, so the performance takes a big leap forwards. How does this affect the emissions and the battery runtime? Did Dell finally...

The performance of our Dell XPS 9560 in the mainstream configuration with the Intel i5-7300HQ and hybrid storage solution is very similar to the previous XPS 15 9550 in the areas of case, input devices, and connectivity. We still like the chassis with...

Dell XPS 15 (2017) Review

 

Whether you need productivity, a great multimedia device, or even want to do some lightweight gaming the Dell XPS 15 has you covered, just be ready to pay for that premium experience.

Gorgeous 4K display ; Crisp, clear audio ; Strong Performance

Expensive ; Shallow key depth

The Dell XPS 15 is a fantastic laptop. Sure it has a premium price tag, but it also has premium features with a jaw-dropping 4K display, strong performance, and a well built portable design. One of the strongest selling points of this device is its...

Dell XPS 15 (2017) review: Kaby Lake and a 4K display make a difference

 

Dell's XPS 15 remains one of the best 15.6-inch laptops you can buy.

Top-notch CPU performance from quad-core Kaby Lake chip ; GeForce GTX 1050 offers decent bump in performance over GTX 960M

Just about average battery life despite huge battery. ; A little heavy considering its power envelope.

The PC industry often gets flak for keeping people on the “technology treadmill” and “updating for updates' sake." But unless you’re the kind of person who wants to buy a brand-new laptop in 2017 packed full of hardware from 2015, we think the updates...

Dell XPS 15 (2017) review

 

Dell took what was arguably a best-in-class 15-inch Windows notebook and made it even better. It retains the line's terrific screen, premium build, svelte design and full feature set, boosting it for 2017 with the latest processors from Intel and Nvidia.

The Dell XPS 15 has a beautiful, high-resolution and accurate broad-gamut display, and it incorporates the Nvidia GTX 1050 gaming GPU, which raises playtime performance in general-purpose laptops.

The webcam is in a terrible location at the bottom of the display and the fan can get loud.

Powerful with a great screen, the Dell XPS 15 delivers solid gaming and affordable mobile workstation-class performance in a relatively compact package.

Dell XPS 15 Touch (2017)

 

With its brilliant 4K screen and updated components, Dell's latest XPS 15 Touch (9560) is a powerful laptop for visual artists, graphics designers, and video enthusiasts.

Excellent performance, thanks to its Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card. Carbon fiber and aluminum construction. Edge-to-edge 4K Ultra High-Definition (UHD) screen. USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3. Large-capacity...

4K screen is a drain on battery life. Awkward webcam angle.

The Dell XPS 15 Touch should be at the top of your list if you're setting up a graphics or video editing studio, or are a well-funded art student. It has the power to complete multimedia projects quickly and features a brilliant screen that shows many...

Dell XPS 15 (2017) Review and Ratings

 

As long as you stay near an AC outlet, Dell's sleek desktop replacement beats Apple's MacBook Pro for graphic artistry and office productivity. (Psst: And 1080p gaming, too.)

Speedy performance ; Stellar 4K display

Lackluster battery life ; Low-angle Webcam

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...
