The Dell XPS 15 9575 convertible is now suddenly $200 cheaper
It hasn't even been a full month since Dell began shipping the XPS 15 convertible and there is already an official price drop. The entry-level XPS 15 9575 can now be had for $1300 USD down from $1500 just a week earlier.
The only major difference between the new cheaper SKU compared to its $200 pricier option is that the lower-cost configuration ships with a smaller 128 GB SATA III SSD instead of a 256 GB NVMe SSD. Thus, sequential read and write rates will be capped at about 500 MB/s each compared to 2000 MB/s or faster on the NVMe option. Otherwise, users will get the same glossy 1080p touchscreen, 8 GB DDR4 RAM, Core i5-8305G CPU, and Radeon Vega M GL GPU for essentially the same day-to-day performance and gaming prowess as the GTX 1050-equipped XPS 15 9560.
Like many notebooks, the SSD in the XPS 15 9575 is easily accessible and upgradeable should users demand more than 128 GB of storage down the line. The new SKU could potentially draw in more buyers who may have no qualms about servicing their own PCs especially since the competing Spectre x360 series is generally more difficult to service. Unlike the XPS 15 9560, however, RAM is fixed and there is no secondary storage option for the XPS 15 9575 and so upgrade options are more limited. Users who want 16 GB of RAM will have to pony up an extra $900 USD for the highest-end SKU with the faster Core i7-8705G CPU and 4K UHD touchscreen.
