Review Dell XPS 15 (L521X) Notebook

 

Light and dark. The new Dell XPS 15 seeks to dethrone the Apple M

Exemplary processing; Excellent input devices; High contrast and brightness display; High performance; Extensive equipment; Detailed Owner's Manual; Good speakers; SSD cache

Mirrored Screen Surface; Average Webcam; Expensive; Throttling in games

There are no doubts that the Apple MacBook Pro 15 is the main competition of the XPS 15. Other exclusive 15-inch competitors are also offered by Sony (Vaio S-Serie 15) and Asus (N56VZ). Gamers should choose gaming notebooks such as the Schenker A502,...

Dell XPS 15z Review

 

Today, we revisit the Dell XPS 15z in a slightly different configuration. The XPS 15z carries with it the same DNA as the XPS 15, but the excess fat has been trimmed down a bit to give the notebook a very sleek and streamlined look. This is the premium...

This particular configuration of the Dell XPS 15z will set you back by Rs.84,900, which makes it quite expensive and definitely a premium notebook. Having said that, we will say that you won’t be disappointed with this notebook. The design, finish and...

Review Dell XPS 15z Notebook

 

The good years are past. Dell has put its XPS range on a diet and re-places the result as the XPS z-series. You wouldn't quite believe that it is a successor of the exclusive Adamo, which was considered to be an opponent of the MacBook Air at the time....

Successful design; High-end materials; Good connectivity and positioning; Good display brightness and contrast; Solid performance reserves; Good battery life

Loud hard disk; High temperatures and noise during load; Moderate speaker quality ; Irremovably built-in battery

If Dell didn't translate it this way, you would never, ever conclude that the XPS 15z is even somehow related to the Dell Adamo XPS

15 inch multimedia laptops with a lot of power under the hood, such as the Acer Aspire 5742G, the Acer Aspire 5750G, the Acer Aspire 5820TG, the Asus N53SV, the Medion Akoya P6630, the Sony Vaio VPC-EB4X1E or the Schenker XMG A501.

Ambitious Glossy-Screened Gamer. Finally, the XPS 15 has gotten

Good Graphics Performance; Excellent Application Performance; Good Placement of Ports; Comfortable Keyboard, Precise Touchpad; Bright Screen with Broad Color Space; Supports 3D Video for 3D-Capable External Monitor/TV

15-inch laptops with mid-range graphics cards, such as the HD 5650 from ATI. If you don't want to go without the broad color space and full HD screen, then the large XPS Studio 16 and the Sony Vaio VPC-F13Z1/E are good choices. The MacBook Pro 15 is...

Dell XPS 15 (2014) Review

 

This high-end multimedia notebook features a remarkable Quad HD+ screen, an aluminum and carbon fiber chassis and excellent performance. This is our take.

Gorgeous display ; Excellent build quality ; Good touchpad ; High performance ; Good battery life

Keyboard layout needs improvement ; Gets warm under heavy workloads

The XPS 15 is an impressive premium 15.6-inch notebook that we’re happy to recommend. Its Quad HD+ (3200 x 1800) display has outstanding picture quality; no corners were cut with the lightweight (4.44 lbs) aluminum and carbon fiber construction; it has...

Dell XPS 15 Touch Review

 

Dell's XPS laptops have long been the Cadillacs of the market. Expensive, luxurious, and powerful, there's no mistaking an XPS for a lesser system. Yet, there's also a lingering, and sometimes unfair, sense that the line is second-best.

Attractive and well-built ; Excellent performance ; Good battery life ; Four USB ports ; Quiet at idle

Sub-par display quality ; 3200x1800 display saps the GPU’s power in games ; Runs hot and loud at load

Extremely quick and built with precision, the XPS 15 falls short of greatness because of its display.

Dell XPS 15 Haswell Edition: QHD+ with a Refined Design

 

Last year one of the better Windows laptops I encountered, at least based on the core appearance and design, was the Dell XPS 15 (Ivy Bridge Edition). It was basically Dell's third attempt at making a MacBook Pro (more or less) – the first two attempts...

At the end of the day, what can be said about the XPS 15 is that it’s a great looking laptop and on paper it checks all the right boxes. In practice, I’ll be frank and state that it’s been a bit of a love/hate relationship with the XPS 15, but the hate...

Dell XPS 15 (9530)

 

With its brilliant screen and serious components, the luxury-minded Dell XPS 15 (9530) is Dell's showcase PC meant to go up against high-end laptop offerings. Unfortunately, its price and battery life keep it from taking the top spot.

Resolution is 3,200 by 1,800 (QHD+). Quad-core CPU, mid-tier enthusiast GPU. Has 802.11ac & Bluetooth 4.0. Comes with 12 months of McAfee LiveSafe. Premium look and materials

Reflective screen. No built-in Ethernet. Some UI elements can be tiny. USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports are both black

The Dell XPS 15 (9530) is a high-end desktop replacement laptop, and that's a funny place to be. While, yes, you could buy a less expensive laptop to do many of the same tasks, systems like the XPS 15 (9530) are simultaneously PC tools and showcases...

Product Specifications

Feel like you’re on the film set. The powerful, beautifully crafted XPS 15 has 2nd Gen Intel Core processors, JBL speakers and vivid graphics to help bring films, music, games and more to life.
