Dell'S XPS 15 Makes An Incredible Laptop Even Better—But Is It Enough?
Source: Reviewed.com English
If you like the XPS's look and feel but want to save some money, the HP Envy x360 13t is worth looking at. We reviewed the 13-inch version, but it comes in a 15-inch size as well with better battery life but less powerful (and upgradeable) components. Alternatively, you could look at Dell’s own XPS 13 2-in-1 if you want something a bit smaller, touch-friendly, and a similar design to the XPS 15.

Dell XPS 15 review: An expensive but nifty Windows laptop for everyday work
Source: Business Standard English
Priced at Rs 2,36,287, the XPS 15 is expensive. The only way you can justify this pricing is by not asking about it. If price does not decide what you should buy, consider this one for its premium design, great display, impressive keyboard and touchpad, and swift performance. A caveat: Look elsewhere is you need a premium notebook for gaming and movie streaming.

Dell has really put in a lot of effort into its XPS line of computers, and it really shows. This is their flagship lineup, and the Dell XPS 15 9500 shows exactly why it is the very best Dell has. I have no problem recommending this laptop to just about anyone.

The Dell XPS 15 2020 follows in the footsteps of the new XPS 13 by making small but welcome refinements to one of the best laptops you can buy. The improved, truly bezel-less InfinityEdge display is one of the most immersive and gorgeous screens you can find on a laptop, with brilliant color and plenty of real estate for getting work done.

But let's talk about the good in this magnificent device. Dell took what was already my favorite 15-inch laptop and made it even better. The InfinityEdge display has even smaller bezels, and with a 16:10 aspect ratio, it's remarkably immersive. Adding to the immersion is audio volume and quality that's on par with the best laptops around.

The XPS 15 is available with FHD+ non-touch and 4K+ touch displays, both claimed at 500 nits brightness. Dell has improved the keyboard, enlarged the trackpad and new quad stereo speakers improve sound. It’s available with Intel 10th gen 45 watt Core i5 and i7 processors (core i9 coming later), has NVIDIA GTX 1650 Ti dedicated graphics and expandable RAM and storage. The laptop / mobile workstation competes with Dell’s own XPS 17, the Razer Blade 15 and 16” MacBook Pro.

Dell XPS 15 9500 Review: Buy this laptop instead of a MacBook Pro 16

There’s a lot to unpack with the XPS 15 9500. CPU performance is very good—it doesn’t significantly move the needle over the previous model, but you’re getting more bang for buck from the current Core i7 over the earlier, pricier Core i9 configuration.

Dell XPS 15 9500 Review: A Case Study In Laptop Excellence
Source: Hot Hardware English
Overall, the new XPS 15 9500 is an excellent laptop with way more hits than misses. The build quality continues to be best in class, it's faster and more fully featured than previous iterations, and is an easy recommendation. It's just not cheap, at least as configured. Priced at $2,299.99, all this luxury commands a premium over run-of-the-mill laptops. However, you certainly get what you pay for with the XPS 15 9500, which is a superb laptop experience in nearly every way.

83% Dell XPS 15 9500 review: The photo editor's new friend
Source: CNet English
Dell's XPS 15 laptops continue to be crowd-pleasers. With its eye-catching, slim new design and photo-editing-friendly performance, display and feature set, the latest 15-inch model can hold its own as a less powerful -- much cheaper -- alternative to a 16-inch MacBook Pro ($2,399 at Apple). It's well worth a look if that's how you roll, though you might want to consider the new 17-inch XPS 17 instead for the bigger screen. Both are still premium-priced, and likely not worth the money if all you need is a pretty work clamshell, not a serious workhorse.

Review – Dell XPS 13 9300: Lots of attention to details
Source: NLT English
It’s a rather interesting question. For me, I’ll say yes – Dell paid a lot of attention and doubled down on how to make the user experience better. We do have the highest-spec variant of the XPS 13 9300 for review, but I think you should buy the other variants instead.

But the primary features that have always made the XPS line a compelling buy — the exceptional keyboard and touchpad, the premium build quality, and the gorgeous screen — remain. And the various design tweaks, including the spacious bezel-less display, the wider keycaps, the slim form factor, and the expanded speakers conspire to give the XPS a modern, chic look and an upgraded user experience. If you’ve wanted to buy an XPS 15, but have been waiting for Dell to ditch the dated design, this model is what you’ve been waiting for.

Dell XPS 15 review (2020): The ideal 15-inch laptop for creatives
Source: Engadget English
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the XPS 15 is in many ways the ideal workhorse PC -- assuming you can live without legacy ports, and you don’t need the graphics rendering power from more advanced GPUs. It's tough to find an ultraportable 15-inch that's this polished from top to bottom. If you’re a photo or video editor or just someone who demands a bit more power than what you’d get from smaller ultraportables, you’ll find a lot to love with the XPS 15’s glorious big screen.
