Massive GPU gains. Moving from the i7-6700HQ to the i7-7700HQ is the tiniest of steps forward. Moving from the GTX 960M to the GTX 1050, however, is a significant graphical leap for the XPS 15 series.
90% Dell XPS 15 review: Power in a portable package
Source: Neowin English
Ultimately, I think that the mass majority of users would be very happy with a Dell XPS 15. It offers a high-power quad-core CPU, a powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU, a 15.6-inch 4K display in the body of a machine with a 14-inch display, and it just feels pleasant to use.

The Dell XPS 15 9560 is a solidly built laptop equipped with a quad-core Core i7 processor and discrete Nvidia graphics. The large, minimal-bezel screen is a pleasure to use and there's a good range of configuration options.

While no laptop can be proficient in every area, the Dell XPS 15 makes a valiant effort to accomplish just that. With the exception of playing games, Dell has proven once again that it can build a laptop that appeals to (almost) everyone.

The Dell XPS 15 9560 Review: Infinity Edge Part Two
Source: AnandTech English
Still, that one issue isn’t enough of a reason to not recommend the XPS 15. It continues to be one of the best 15.6-inch laptops on the market today. Dell has kept the performance intact as they shrunk the chassis, unlike many of the other 15.6-inch models from the competition. The aluminum and carbon fibre look is stunning, and other than the less than ideal location of the webcam, Dell’s design wins far more than it loses. If you’re looking for a larger notebook than an Ultrabook, you’d be doing a disservice to yourself to not at least check out the XPS 15.

It’s definitely going to be hard going back to a 1080p FHD non-touch after using this one for awhile. The Dell XPS 15 9560 is a well-designed, solid performing, business oriented laptop with decent battery life that can also easily handle games with higher requirements — and that’s why it’s earned a Top Pick of 2017 here at Techaeris.

The Dell XPS 15 is a fantastic laptop. Sure it has a premium price tag, but it also has premium features with a jaw-dropping 4K display, strong performance, and a well built portable design. One of the strongest selling points of this device is its versatility. It’s portable enough to be a travel laptop, with solid battery life. It’s also powerful enough to be a great workhouse, with the ability to multitask and load files almost instantly. Not to mention the dedicated GPU makes it a great option for games and media to boot. Truthfully the only downside is that the key travel is a bit limited, but that doesn’t mar the incredible package this laptop offers.

80% Dell XPS 15 (2017) review: Kaby Lake and a 4K display make a difference
Source: PC World English
Is it fast enough that you'll run out and replace the XPS 15 you have? No, but we don’t think Dell expected you to do that anyway. This XPS 15 is aimed at someone who wants a fairly compact powerhouse without back-breaking weight and size. Our only real ding is the average battery life from our test unit (your mileage may vary depending on configuration and use). For today, though, the XPS 15 is still clearly one of the top dogs of the 15.6-inch laptop pack.

The PC industry often gets flak for keeping people on the “technology treadmill” and “updating for updates' sake." But unless you’re the kind of person who wants to buy a brand-new laptop in 2017 packed full of hardware from 2015, we think the updates are worthy changes.

The 2017 Dell XPS 15 has no clear pitfalls. It’s sturdy and highly configurable. The new graphics card makes it an obvious choice for creators and PC gamers than last year’s model. Great speakers and the amazing display help it to keep its crown as a best-in-class way to watch videos and listen to music.

Enter the newly revised XPS 15 notebook system, the latest in a proud line of high-end, full-feature laptops from Dell. Immediately, it socks you squarely in the eyes with that gorgeous Infinity Edge display. It’s 15.6 inches in diagonal, but thanks to the vanishingly compact proportions of the bezels, the XPS is the smallest such laptop on the market. In other words, slim bezels don’t just look great, they have a practical benefit, too.

The Dell XPS 15 may be the best 15-inch laptop money can buy
Source: Reviewed.com English
When looking at this Dell, it's really hard for me not to compare it to Apple's latest and greatest MacBook Pro 15-inch. Unlike that 15-inch notebook, however, Dell is giving enthusiasts and pros alike what they want—a variety of prices and, amazingly, upgradeability.

Dell XPS 15 (9560) Review: More Performance, Same Killer Good Looks
Source: Hot Hardware English
Dell's XPS 15 is an ultrabook that stands out from the crowd. Very few professional-looking and sleek notebooks bother with high performance hardware, and in that regard the XPS 15 is a bit of a sleeper. It is certainly a welcome respite for those of us who need to maintain appearances in the office or the classroom, but still wish to get our game on during downtime.

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a video—a locally stored MP4 file containing the full The Lord of the Rings trilogy—with screen brightness set at 50 percent and volume at 100 percent until the system conks out.

80% Dell XPS 15 Touch (2017)
Source: PC Mag English
The Dell XPS 15 Touch should be at the top of your list if you're setting up a graphics or video editing studio, or are a well-funded art student. It has the power to complete multimedia projects quickly and features a brilliant screen that shows many more colors than a business-oriented laptop could muster. The only downside is the shortish battery life. Still, it's faster, and costs $700 less than the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch, and has all the requisite ports, while the MacBook Pro needs adapters for all connections except USB-C and Thunderbolt 3.

The 2017 Dell XPS 15 laptop will start at around $1,000 for the base Core i3 model. Compared to an Apple MacBook Pro with the same specs, the Dell will sound like a relative bargain given its features and performance capabilities.

100% Dell XPS 15 (2016) review
Source: Stuff TV English
If you are after a workhorse laptop with bells on, your choice is either this or Apple’s MacBook Pro. Given even the most expensive 4K-screened incarnation of the XPS 15 still costs £500 less than an entry-level Pro, we’re inclined to hand it the victory. The difference between the two machines simply isn’t that pronounced.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Notebook): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 960M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  
7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products.

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.
83.38%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
