The Dell XPS 15 is a well-rounded mainstream multimedia machine that will give you plenty of power while still being portable enough to carry around if needed. The design is attractive enough, and the machine is comfortable to use. We’re fans of the beautiful HD display; though it lacks a touchscreen, it doesn’t make Windows 8 any harder than necessary.

This 2012 generation of the Dell XPS 15 has a well-finished, upgraded chassis, good processing power, quality audio components, good handling of everyday tasks and a certain amount of gaming capability. All these things make this, in our opinion, a computer worth buying. With just a little more work on the screen and less noise the XPS 15 could easily have earned all five stars. So, Dell, you know what your mission is for 2013!

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
