Reviews for the Dell XPS 15 9550 i7 FHD
Finally on its feet. After a series of software issues, we decided to check up once again on a different SKU of the XPS 15 to see if those problematic areas have been patched up. The results are outstanding.

While I find some other laptops available on the market better at certain tasks (digital pen, convertible, etc.), there is really only one laptop with these high-end specs, premium design, and gorgeous display on the market. It is not a laptop for everyone, but I know three "regular" people who swear by this machine. While a 4.4-pound laptop sounds odd in 2016, sometimes you just need what the XPS 15 can deliver, and for that, I'm glad it's here.

The Dell XPS 15 is a fantastic laptop and a no-brainer purchase for anyone who wants a laptop that lives primarily on a desk at home or in the office. It’s cheaper and more highly specc’d than a MacBook Pro and makes far more sense to buy than something like a Microsoft Surface Pro 3. The 4K screen is seriously gorgeous to look at while the colour accuracy makes it ideal for anyone working with graphics. We'd happily buy one of these for ourselves and that's about the highest praise we can give.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these 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.
