Dell XPS 15 review (2020): The ideal 15-inch laptop for creatives


Dell's premium 15-inch notebook finally has a design refresh to match the excellent XPS 13. It's fast, sleek and has one of the best screens we've seen in a workhorse PC. The only downside is that it loses legacy ports.

Thinner and lighter design ; Screen is larger with thinner bezels ; Better keyboard and trackpad ; Excellent performance ; SD card reader still included

No USB Type A or HDMI ports ; Only three USB-C connections

Dell XPS 15 (9500) review: Best 15-inch laptop you can buy


Every aspect of the new Dell XPS 15 has been redesigned, and yet the look still feels distinctly XPS. Is this still the best laptop for creative professionals?

Efficient design ; An extra Thunderbolt 3 port ; World-class display ; Excellent performance

Dell XPS 15 (2020) review: new design, familiar problems


Still not perfect but certainly an improvement.

Excellent 16:10 display ; Upgraded bezel-free chassis design ; Great keyboard and touchpad ; Full-size SD card reader

Below-average battery life ; Loud fans under load ; Runs hot ; Frustrating bloatware that affects performance

Dell has released its newest 15-inch flagship, the 2020 Dell XPS 15. We tested a midrange model that includes a Core i7-10875H, 16GB of RAM (DDR4), an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti, and 512GB SSD. It sports a new design that looks modern and chic, but it...

Dell XPS 15 9500 Review: Buy this laptop instead of a MacBook Pro 16


Dell's totally redesigned XPS 15 9500 features a beautiful 4K screen, 10th gen 8-core Core i7, GeForce graphics and gets here just in time to press F for the MacBook Pro 16.

Gorgeous slim-bezel display ; Fantastic audio for a laptop

GPU performance takes a step back ; Not even one measly USB-A port

The parts of the laptop you touch most are the keyboard and trackpad. On the XPS 15 9500, you thankfully get a standard butterfly switch instead of the company’s MagLev keyboard. That means good travel and fairly stable keys when depressed.

Dell XPS 15 (2020) review


The Dell XPS 15 keeps getting better

Attractive premium chassis ; Bright, vivid, super high-res display ; Great overall and graphics performance ; Good battery life for a 4K laptop ; Excellent audio ; Comfortable keyboard

Expensive ; Runs a bit hot

The Dell XPS 15 gets rid of the bezels, serves up impressive power with excellent audio and a beautiful super high-res touch display in a smaller, premium frame.

Dell XPS 15 9500 Core i7 GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Laptop Review: No Core i9 Nonsense


What are the differences between a $1300 XPS 15 and a $2400 XPS 15? Aside from the obvious display resolution and performance advantages, there are some smaller changes as well. We go over all of them here.

great audio quality for an Ultrabook;bright, high quality 16:10 display;respectable CPU performance;2x M.2 2280 PCIe slots;quiet under low loads;fast SD card reader;very large clickpad;long battery life;no PWM

no major gen-to-gen improvements to temperature or noise;average display response times; ghosting when gaming;GPU performance and frame rates could be steadier;integrated clickpad keys are on the spongy side;display is slightly dimmer than FHD...

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


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...

Dell's XPS displays just keep getting better ; That XPS design is still fresh and relevant ; Outstanding performance ; The speakers and sound are first class ; Pretty great battery life with normal use ; The bezels are super slim

It does weigh a bit more than the competition ; Gets pricer the more features and options you pack in ; 720p webcam

Dell XPS 15 (2020) review


The Dell XPS 15 2020 offers great performance and one of the most immersive, colorful displays of any 15-inch laptop.

, which packs a bigger screen and optional RTX graphics for superior content creation. But if you’re looking for a portable workhorse that’s as attractive as it is powerful, the XPS 15 is among the best in its class.
