On 1 January, 2015 Dell bring down to earth a super model XPS 13. However this 13 inches laptop doesn’t seem to satisfy all users by its size. After that on October 15, another version of Dell XPS 15 was released with larger 15 inches screen, an incredible size for a laptop. So today we will give you a brief review about this brand new laptop. As usual, we will go through 3 key points of a laptop: design, display, and hardware.
The very first strike of a laptop must be its appearance and for Dell XPS 15, its design really attracts Dell’s fans long before its release date. The highlight of this device is its edge of the screen. As you can see the edge of the screen is so thin that brings you a so called edge-to-edge display. This “borderless” device looks bigger than ever in 15 inches version.

There are 2 options for you to choose, the 4K display screen and the HD touch screen. The screen of Dell XPS 15 is made of carbon fiber and the whole body is covered with aluminum. The whole structure weights 4.44lbs (2.01kg), quiet heavy but the thickest part of this laptop is just 17 mm and it makes this laptop the “smallest 15-inch” ever before. There is a USB Type-C port which also support Thunderbolt 3 allows you to have 4 times faster transferring date and twice the video bandwidth than any other cable. You can also charge your XPS 15 through this USB port.
Like Apple with MacBook Pro and Microsoft with Surface Book, Dell should have investigated a lot of time and money for a 4K screen with the revolution of 3840×2160 pixels. The screen must be the pride of Dell for XPS 15. This screen can fully display the best quality videos for a fantastic experience of users. Come along with fantastic display must be an incredible chip set because XPS 15 can be equipped up to Skylake, Intel’s latest chip set sixth-generation processors, a quad-core i7. It’s also support Nvidia GPU up to 2 GB GTX 960M graphics adapter if you are a gamer who is interested in 3D graphic games.
The storage of this device can reach 1 TB and there are 2 options for you to choose: regular HDD and SSD version for better transferring data. A HDD version uses a 56W battery and SDD one uses 84W. Because of the division into HD and 4K display, there are 2 kinds of battery which equivalent to different time to use up the battery. 10 hours to surfing Wi-Fi 4K display of Core i7 and a much longer up to 17 hours HD display with Core i7. So you see, the display of 4K revolution really consumes a bunch of battery.
This monster is not only fashionable but also strong like a real gaming PC. There are many options for you to choose from. As for me, I really like a laptop with wide screen and high revolution so that I can enjoy videos and film at home in my free time. What about you? What is your ideal laptop of your life?
