Reviews for the Dell XPS 15-dndogx4

85% Dell XPS 15
Source: Hardware Zone English
Dell's notebooks have always stood in good light, and their XPS line has constantly managed good value and performance that is hard to beat. While some may like the looks of the older generation XPS machines, the updated design suits it quite well despite its chunkiness. On the Dell XPS 15, the added thickness however comes with the additional benefit of having a subwoofer located at its underside.

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.  


740QM:

The Core i7-740QM is a high-end quad-core CPU for laptops (in 2010) with a relative small base clock rate and a high Turbo Boost max frequency of 2.93 GHz (for one core). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow clocked quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 740QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.
