Reviews for the Dell XPS 16 9640, Ultra 7 165H RTX 4070

Dell XPS 16 Review: Beautiful, Polarizing Full-Featured Laptop
Source: Hot Hardware English
From productivity to gaming and everything in between, the Dell XPS 16 can do it all. This premium laptop has something for everyone starting with a solid-performing Intel Core Ultra 7 processor paired to a mid-tier discrete NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 GPU, which can run most modern gaming titles smoothly, with high image quality settings with all the bells and whistles enabled. This should be appealing to mobile professionals, gamers and creatives alike. Dell also sweetens the deal with an agile SSD, beautiful OLED touch panel, and comfortable keyboard -- all contained in a relatively slim, premium chassis. The design of the keyboard deck might not be everyone’s cup of tea, with it's minimalist look and invisible touchpad, but after a while most users will likely get over the absence of a demarcated touchpad as it’s a relatively small issue.

This range for display formats was and is a rarity. It is larger than the general standard of 15 inches, but not yet in the range of large workstations. One usually has higher screen resolutions available, but portability suffers from that.
