86.8% Dell XPS 15 9500 Core i5 Review: Now Even More Like a MacBook Pro | Notebookcheck
This is the biggest XPS 15 refresh since 2016, but is it everything XPS fans have wanted? Of course not — die-hard fans will always find something to complain about. For everyone else, the significant gen-to-gen improvements and new 16:10 display all help make the system more comfortable to use than ever before.
Dell XPS 15 9500 review – finally the redesign we were all waiting for
Source: Laptop Media English
You know, this, the build quality, the upgradability with its 64GB of supported memory in dual-channel and dual M.2 drive slots in RAID 0, as well as the more than decent speakers makes for a great piece of equipment. And if you want to buy the XPS 15 9500, we’ve no reason to tell you not to. As long as you stay away from the Core i5-10300H model, you’re fine, even if you go for the Full HD+ display.

The Dell XPS 15 is easily the best 15-inch laptop on the market, and in a lot of ways it's the best laptop period. It's extremely powerful, stylish and light enough to carry around town. We seriously can't find anything that holds it back.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dell XPS 15 9500-BNX9508

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.

90% Dell XPS 15 (2020) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Dell XPS 15 (2020) is one of the absolute best 15-inch laptops you can buy, with the design, screen and keyboard all boasting industry-leading quality. However, the lack of high-end GPU options mean you may be better off with a MacBook Pro or gaming laptop than spending big on one of the £2000+ configurations.

The Dell XPS 15 is a superb laptop in most respects. Excellent performance, a huge trackpad, amazing speakers, long battery life and a graphics card potent enough to play recent games at 1080p are all squeezed into a laptop that will fit comfortably into a rucksack.

Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 630: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found in some Coffee-Lake CPU models (mobile and desktop). Similar to the older HD Graphics 630 found in the Kaby-Lake CPUs.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops that uses a Turing TU117 chip without raytracing and Tensor cores. Should be slightly faster than a GTX 1650, but is also available in different variants with a TGP ranging from 55 - 80 Watt (and two packages).

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops that uses a Turing TU117 chip without raytracing and Tensor cores. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop GTX 1650 Ti to achieve a much lower power consumption (35 versus 50 - 80 Watt).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Comet Lake:

i5-10300H: On Comet Lake architecture (4th gen of Skylake) based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates four processor cores clocked at 2.5 - 4.5 GHz (4.2 GHz with 4 cores) that support HyperThreading. 

i7-10875H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates eight processor cores clocked at 2.3 - 5,1 GHz (all 8 cores up to 4.3 GHz) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).

i7-10750H: On Comet Lake architecture (4th gen of Skylake) based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 5 GHz (most likely 4.3 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).
