    This laptop is 0.5 lbs (20%) heavier than it needs to be with no benefit. To call it close to perfection is either a joke or a sign of poor taste imo

    Terrible laptop. My Dell XPS 15 that I bought in March, 2019 is still sitting unused in my basement. Failed SD card. Failed mainboard. Failed fingerprint reader. Do not buy.

    You can not call this laptop an XPS without a dedicated GPU Dell. This is just a basic bitch ultrabook. Sexy but still shitty.

      External cd drive. You get some good, inexpensive ones.
      It takes up valuable space in a laptop, and since people want thin and light well... they took it out.

  • Matteo De Vellis
    Matteo De Vellis Před 11 dny

    About damn time they offered a touch screen that isn't 4k. Like why the actual f*ck do people care about 4k in a 13 inch display. You're not gonna notice a difference ffs and it drains so much more battery. So happy Dell did this.

    I dont understand why they insist on ONLY having USB C. There is virtually no use to them on day to day basis. The standard is still USB A. 99% of computer accessories use USB A, including USB memory pen drives, external HDD or computer mice. It makes no sense and its an insta deal breaker for me.

    • Napoleon Blownapart
      Napoleon Blownapart Před 8 dny

      @Jesse Hattingh yeah. If apple made a laptop with a brand new modification: no fucking battery. Youll have to carry and external dongle battery to use it mobile. I bet it would be revolutionary and every brand would follow suit.
      Fuck apple. Fuck them so much.

    • Jesse Hattingh
      Jesse Hattingh Před 8 dny

      They justify it through the use of dongles. Usb C is basically a swiss army knife without the tools xD
      Which makes sense since apple helped develop it.
      Kay Imma stop now.

      I don't know, there's something about Lenovo's Thinkpad's design I don't like. Maybe it's the logo printed under the keyboard, but I feel think it looks cheap. Overall, specs wise, they're pretty much the same.

    Do y’all think this is better than a surface book 2 or a MacBook Pro??? Idk what to invest in...looking for something for video editing and for college, any recommendations?

    • Ariella
      Ariella Před 13 dny

      oisin craninx thanks so much for your advice (: I actually went laptop shopping at Best Buy and they told me the laptop 2 wasn’t “powerful enough” for video editing, so I wasn’t sure

    • oisin craninx
      oisin craninx Před 16 dny

      If you're in college and you need your laptop for video editing I would certainly not take the Surface Book 2. Although it's a great device, for your use and needs it's overpriced. The MacBook Pro's keyboard is a pain in the butt from what I've heard. A friend of mine had to get it replaced twice already. However Mac is great if you want a device where you can't do anything wrong with the settings. But if you're like me and you like to mess with the settings and you know what you're doing: go for Windows.
      Other good options might be a Microsoft Surface Laptop, Lenovo ThinkPad or an Asus ZenBook. Alongside with the Dell XPS 13 and the MacBook Pro it really goes down to preferences. If you want to play games too, you might want to consider the Razerblade 15.

      If I had to choose for a student laptop for video editing, I would go with either the XPS 13 or the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2.

    Hi Dave, and everyone.
    I am currently using the XPS12 9380, 4k touchscreen. I have been sourcing for a good stylus for taking down notes on my laptop for the past few months. However, 9380 does not support an active stylus and DELL does not have any stylus made for this model too. DOES anyone know any good and accurate stylus I could get? I am stuck with those rubber tip styluses, which are not accurate and only have a short lifespan. Please help me out. Thank you!

    you seem to have a partiality for the XPS, line and overlook the crappy keyboard. saying you will get used to it, it is low travel and feels awful for those of us who do a lot of typing, I am surprised you are not more critical

    Wow a 13" screen that weighs about the same as an LG gram with a 17" screen. If LG made a 13" gram you'd have to tape it to your desk so it wouldn't float away. Pity Dell still lines their laptops with lead.

    Very incomplete review. Battery life, Max RAM and SSD size you can get? How does it perform with linux? Spent too much time on color and texture not enough on substance.

    • Googol
      Googol Před měsícem

      He actually said that battery life is about 8 hours in 4K, and hypothetically 11 hours on FHD. Btw, I don't really care about max RAM and SSD in a video review. You can read it on their official website. It's more accurate there. It's how their opinions on their own personal experience such as screen quality, keyboard, track pad, and other things that are matters for me.

    AVOID THE HEADACHE. I paid over $2500 for the works! Perfect, tiny, touch screen to be gamer ding dong ready. After 2 years, this thing is burnt up. Keyboard warped, bluetooth and wifi barely stays awake, and oh yeah, the BATTERY is pretty much DEAD! it has a 10% life span.So after I unplug it, it lasts about 5 mins. Yeah, and this seems to be a normal occurrence after I researched the issues. If you need to change the battery, supposedly its connected to audio and many ppl lose or have issues with audio after a battery change. It comes with NO fan. And if you sit it on a flat surface, the computer can't breath really. Yep, forgot to add that the plug tip keeps bending. I'm on my 2nd cable. The ports are loose. Man, just save yourselves the headache. Avoid getting this at any cost. It was fun while it lasted but 2 years and $2500. I could have simply thrown that money out of a moving car window for better results.

    Really enjoy your reviews Dave and it’s a fantastic looking machine, but if they haven’t addressed power adaptor and machine coil whine, overly excessive fan noise, buzzing fan bearings then this thing really hasn’t addressed its ongoing issues. Shame as it’s honestly one of the nicest ultrabooks around. Dealing with dell tech support is not great also. I would recommend anyone looking to buy an XPS 13 to look into the dell forums and other tech forums about the issues that plague this device.

    Does anyone know if the eGPU Box will work on the XPS 15 with its thunderbolt 3 connection? I would rather get the XPS 15 2019 version (man, it really been only 4 years since the first one came out... feel like it was only 2 years) with its 32GB RAM and maxed out hardware, come to the home office and plug it in to the screen and the eGPU Box.
    Anyone see if it worked on it and if editing video and photos was good? How about the Alienware 17-51M? Lord I don't have the month to find out for myself lol but if no one has the answer, I might just have to do it and make a video on it
