87% Dell XPS 15 9500 Core i5 Review: Now Even More Like a MacBook Pro

A breath of fresh air. This is the biggest XPS 15 refresh since 2016, but is it everything XPS fans have wanted? Of course not — die-hard fans will always find something to complain about. For everyone else, the significant gen-to-gen improvements and new 16:10 display all help make the system more comfortable to use than ever before.

Opinion | The Dell XPS 15 naming scheme is a mess

The XPS 15 naming scheme continues to cause confusion among fans of the series. With the XPS 15 9500 replacing the XPS 15 7590, which in turn replaced the XPS 15 9570, where does Dell go from 2021 onwards?
