Reasons to buy the Dell XPS 15 are many. It’s a refreshing update to Dell’s premier laptop range, combining features and options that are hard to find in many other mainstream laptops. A full-HD screen, USB 3.0 ports, Nvidia 3D TV Play, very good onboard sound, striking looks and features -- all this at a not quite insanely high price. If you’re looking for a very good desktop replacement laptop at the Rs. 50,000 mark, make sure you check out the new Dell XPS 15.
workmanship, equipment and display resolution are good but the weight is high

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 435M: GF108 based mid-range graphics card with DX11 support.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» 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.  


840QM: The Core i7-840QM is a high-end quad core CPU for laptops that clocks due to the Turbo Mode from 1.86-3.2 GHz. Therefore, the processor combines the advantages of fast single core CPUs and slow quad-core CPUs. Hyperthreading allows the simultaneous use of 8 Threads in parallel. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

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

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.86 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


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.


83.8%: 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.
