Summary: Not so bad. The only weakness is the brightness of screen is low. If it has a independent graphic card, it will be better. Its shape is fashion, but for the whole , it is not a powerful laptop.
Summary: all good until we looked for an internal optical drive and there wasn't one. a notebook with NO drive. who would have imagined. then told there was no poss to add one. now its utterly useless for my daughter and cant return. we are devastated, paid big bucks for nothing. aside all else is awesome. but its like having a luxury sports car with no keys.
Summary: All of a sudden the system hangs. It happened three times so far(less than one month). So the mouse pointer still moves but there is no reaction to mouse and keyboard. I have to restart to get it resolved.
Summary: I bought this laptop based on the 4k video and have been disappointed with the screen. While it is very clear and sharp for text, most videos and pictures look terrible on my Dell XPS 15. The videos are very dark with a deep red tint and the same holds true for the pictures. There is very little depth to the videos or pictures.
Summary: I was very excited about upgrading from my four year old XPS to this laptop, and when it's plugged in it's a great machine. When I try and use it on battery power alone, however, I wonder about the claims of long battery life made in the product's description. With the laptop simply sitting on my desk unused, Dell power settings enabled, I'm lucky to get over 1.5 hours of power. 1.5 hours. Absolutely unacceptable for a flagship device.
Summary: So I've been using my Dell XPS 9530 for about a month now. I decided to purchase an XPS since the laptop I was using was a 6-7 year old M1530, also XPS (Which still works) The "new" XPS 9530 is amazing I am a computer programmer so this was really a solid pick. The performance is about average for what you are paying for: Discrete GPU, i7 processor, 16gb of RAM (WAY more than enough) and the HDD with a SSD cache.
Summary: The power supply is heavy! I am replacing my Samsung Series 9 NP900X4D which is very light and thin (notebook and power supply). So, it is a lot heavier than the Samsung. I was very happy with my Samsung but the monitor deteriorated after less than two years (don't get Samsung though!). I travel often so weight matters.
Summary: This unit is lightweight, fast and looks beautiful. The screen is bright and the main unit is quiet. There are some programs that don't do well with the super high-res graphics, as the text can be very small.
