Ambitious Glossy-Screened Gamer. Finally, the XPS 15 has gotten a chance to go through our obstacle course. This configuration of a powerful quad-core CPU and Nvidia GeForce GT 435M GPU on an optimized full HD RGB LED screen shows promise not only in terms of application and graphics performance but also as a multimedia device.

Reasons to buy the Dell XPS 15 are many. It’s a refreshing update to Dell’s premier laptop range, combining features and options that are hard to find in many other mainstream laptops. A full-HD screen, USB 3.0 ports, Nvidia 3D TV Play, very good onboard sound, striking looks and features -- all this at a not quite insanely high price. If you’re looking for a very good desktop replacement laptop at the Rs. 50,000 mark, make sure you check out the new Dell XPS 15.
workmanship, equipment and display resolution are good but the weight is high

NVIDIA GeForce GT 435M: GF108 based mid-range graphics card with DX11 support.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


840QM: The Core i7-840QM is a high-end quad core CPU for laptops that clocks due to the Turbo Mode from 1.86-3.2 GHz. Therefore, the processor combines the advantages of fast single core CPUs and slow quad-core CPUs. Hyperthreading allows the simultaneous use of 8 Threads in parallel. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
