Dell XPS 15 review:

Techworld
4 July 2014
  • Summary: Battery life is disappointing, especially as the XPS 15 is intended as a lightweight Ultrabook, although as a desktop replacement system it ticks more of the right boxes. It provides outstanding display quality and high-end performance at a competitive price, while still being slim and light enough to slip into a bag for the occasional business trip or weekend away.

Dell XPS 15

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: As long as you don't go crazy with the customisation options, the Dell XPS 15 will prove a relatively affordable and powerful laptop with a great display. But it's big, bulky and has a few design quirks that keep it from being great.
  • Cons: Big and bulky; quite ugly; annoying port placement; can become very expensive if you add too many extras.

Dell XPS 15-L502X (Intel Core i7-2630

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: Equipped with second-gen Intel Core i-series CPUs and improved Nvidia graphics, the new Dell XPS 15 performs even better than its predecessor, although it's still just as bulky. Also, keep in mind that the XPS 15 ranges greatly in price, from $799 up to $1,500.
  • Cons: The extremely bulky, uninspired design of the XPS 15 doesn't suit its price, and though the battery life is very good, it's not as great as Apple's MacBook Pro. Some configuration options feel like they should have been included for free.

Dell XPS 15z

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: Claiming to be the world's thinnest Windows laptop, the Dell XPS 15z is a sharp-looking package with upgradable high-end features and a reasonable $999 starting price.
  • Cons: It's still not thinner than the 15-inch MacBook Pro, and in our high-end $1,500 configuration, we'd expect longer battery life and a better GPU.

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

AnandTech
6 March 2014
  • Conclusion: 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 comes more from being frustrated by my inability to get consistent results.

  • Conclusion: But the Apple has longer battery life, cooler bundled software, a slightly better keyboard, and slightly nicer scaling or presentation on its high-res screen. We'll pick the MacBook Pro.
  • Pros: Spectacular 3,200x1,800 touch screen, 802.11ac wireless, Premium look and feel, Priced under Retina MacBook Pro
  • Cons: No Thunderbolt or Ethernet, Lackluster battery life

Dell XPS 15 Touch Screen Laptop Review

HotHardware
23 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Dell's XPS line of laptops have always been about foregoing compromise in the pursuit of a premium mobile experience. The company's latest lineup of XPS 15 touch-enabled systems carry that tradition into a new era of computing, driven by Microsoft's Windows 8.1 operating system. These machines are anything but cookie cutter, and even if you're not a fan of the unified approach Microsoft took with Windows, there's more here than just a touch computing experience.
  • Pros: Incredibly powerful foundation, Gorgeous QHD+ display, Discrete GPU capable of gaming, Looks professional, Decent battery life, Backlit keyboard
  • Cons: Pricey (as configured)

Dell XPS 15 (2013) review

Digitaltrends
21 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Dell’s XPS 15 is a valiant attempt to compete with the best premium notebooks but, ultimately, it falls a bit short. The blame for this lies with the display, which pads the price but doesn’t add much to the user experience. Is it sharp? Certainly. But poor black levels sap contrast and ultimately sour the overall package.
  • Pros: Attractive and durable exterior, Very thin and light for a 15.6” laptop, Four USB 3.0 ports, Bright 3200 x 1800 display, Quick, well-rounded performance
  • Cons: Expensive, Display lacks contrast, Loud fan at load

Review Dell XPS 15 (9530, Late 2013) Notebook

Notebookcheck
14 December 2013
  • Summary: I'm sexy and I know it. The Dell XPS 15 is a multimedia powerhouse with premium-level features. The most recent version of the notebook series, which has been around for quite a few generations, not only brings changes to the design, but also updates to the internal components.
  • Pros: High-end materials, Sturdy chassis and superb build quality, Upgradable by the user, High display brightness and contrast, Very sharp picture, Very high performance, Good battery life, Dell's premium notebook affirms its status without any compromises.
  • Cons: Frequent rendering issues due to the high resolution under Windows, Highly reflective display, High temperatures under load, Expensive, Windows 8.1 should be able to handle the high-resolution display without any issues.
