Model:

The Dell XPS 15 9500 is the latest addition to the Dell family. The laptop has a 15.6-inch screen size along with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. It is quite normal for users to refrain themselves from having to carry a bulky 15-inch laptop everywhere despite the improved performance that comes with it. However, the Dell XPS 15 might just break the myth that a 15-inch laptop has to be that bulky, as this laptop is only 18 mm thick and weighs about 2.05 kg. Obviously, this is not the lightest laptop in the world, but with the kind of hardware and long-lasting battery that has been incorporated within this device, the Dell 15 is definitely more portable than it even needs to be. In terms of its connectivity, some cuts have been made, as there are only three Thunderbolt-3 ports, an SD-card reader and a headphone jack. While wired headphone users can rejoice over the fact that there is a headphone jack included in this laptop, the limited number of ports might disappoint some users. However, it should be noted that the overall gorgeous look of the laptop itself might just make users overlook the lack of legacy ports. The Dell XPS 15 is made entirely of CNC aluminum with clean edges and the typical Dell logo on the exterior.

As far as the keyboard is concerned, it has been made with carbon fibre, which makes it even more comfortable. However, it may get a little grungy over time. Apart from that, there are two upward-facing speaker grills on either side of the keyboard. Beneath this is a quad-speaker arrangement that could be by far one of the best heard in a laptop, going right up against the latest 16-inch MacBook Pro. This is undoubtedly a great improvement from the Dell XPS 15 2019, which was equipped with speakers that were too weak to fill even a small room with decent sound. The Dell XPS 15 9500 also comes with a 3840 x 2400 display that hits 100% of the Adobe RGB colour gamut and 500 nits of brightness. In addition to this, the incredibly small display bezels make the screen look even bigger, which improves the overall user experience while watching a movie. This laptop would obviously cater to creative professionals that need a bright, colour-accurate display, and also for viewing high-resolution movies. In terms of its performance, this laptop has been packed with an Intel Core i7-10875H and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Ti, which is technically a gaming GPU. However, it should be noted that the Dell XPS 15 9500 2020 is definitely not a gaming laptop, as its thin and light chassis will not be able to extend itself to long gaming sessions. Overall, this laptop is great for anyone who would benefit from its features.
