Dell XPS 15

Picture perfect

With its stunning 4K UHD display, the Dell XPS 15 eclipses the view of all other 15-inch laptops. It features the world's first InfinityEdge display, a virtually borderless 15.6-inch screen placed into the body of a 14-inch laptop. Plus, the XPS 15 is only 17mm thin and weighs just 2.08 kg.

Dell XPS 15

Crystal-clear display

The XPS 15 delivers an incredible 8 million pixels on its 4K UltraHD display—4 million more than Full HD. The view is always precise, clear, and eye-poppingly lifelike. Films jump off the screen. Presentations shine. And photos and videos can be edited with pinpoint precision.

Dell XPS 15

Solid as a rock

Premium craftsmanship and design make this laptop a real head-turner. Its all-aluminium body is strong, durable, and stylish, while its carbon-fibre base is tough and thin like aluminium, but cooler to the touch.

Great machine, poor quality control

I'm torn. This laptop has everything that I would need to complete any task I could imagine. It has the horsepower to chew through any reasonable video editing and animation project. It has a sharp screen to that makes working with typography and graphics a joy. The ports are just the right mix of old and new. The Thunderbolt 3 port is an excellent addition, and will provide more flexibility in the future. The industrial design doesn't leave much to be desired, other than the missing indent for lifting the screen up. The keyboard is just fine for me, the battery life is OK, the speakers are passable (facing downward), and the web cam is awkwardly placed. BUT, considering how expensive it is, my experience of using this product has been less than promising. There is something seriously wrong with the components: There is often considerable coil whine when plugged in to wall power, and a different kind of rattling noise when on battery power. It is often audible even when there are people talking in the same room. This is apparently a common problem with this model. Also, I've experienced screen flickers ever since receiving the laptop, despite my efforts to remedy the problem through software updates and OS re-installation. That's not all: It only took Dell's own hardware diagnosis software's graphics test to somehow damage the GPU fan. It now rattles as if it has a broken bearing. We'll see what Dell's repair technicians can do about all that. I'm not saying that everyone will have as many problems with their product as I've had with mine, but this is something that you need to be aware of. So, in summary: It will chew through any task I need to, but it will annoy me making noises that a computer this expensive shouldn't. The funny thing is that there is no other Windows laptop that can reach this level of portability while being as powerful and flexible. Considering the quality control issues, I would not recommend you buy this product, unless you have no other choice.




Great screen, super fast

Excellent features - black screen problem

The computer performance is fantastic and the screen is excellent (when working), all in a great looking package. However, the screen keeps going black and I've had to disable to Nvidia graphics and install old drivers for the intel graphics to get it working (until it goes black again then I have to repeat). Would be a truly great computer if it were reliable. Googling the problem suggests many others have the same problem.




Exellent features. Fantastic screen

I bought month ago. I am very happy. Laptop work quickly
