    The XPS series is NOT the competitor to the Lenovo Thinkpad. Dells proper business brand is the latitude series. When will linus review one?

    1080p touch option?
    *NO* please don't.
    I own XPSs since 2014 and I was always happy with the 1080p non-touch option because you save battery on the non-touch and smaller resolution! Also the 1080p is anti-glare (as opposed to glossy) because of the non-touch.

    Ultrabooks have become more practical.
    I was blown away with the speed and battery life of Intel's 8th Gen CPU in the XPS.
    Yes, Intel HD graphics GPU is still the grandma in a wheel chair on life support.
    But the quad core CPU is about as fast as my Macbook Pro from 2013.
    Still not much good for games or TVclip video editing, but Javascript infested web pages are now tolerable.
    So all those self taught wannabe programmers out there can now litter the web pages with outrageous lines of bloated Javascript code.

    Know I'm late but just a quick tip, get the 1080P panel. Compared to 4K it destroys in in terms of battery life, reaching even MacBook Air battery life for a much cheaper price. This a great buy if you can get a good deal with little to no deal breakers, I just wish they added a USB a port for a mouse.

    That sad moment when you want to buy this laptop, but the camera placement is SO horrid that you can't buy it. Dell designers should be punched in the face for doing such a moronic decision. Frustrating.

    • Mukesh Singh

    • Nimo Kali
      Nimo Kali Month ago

      Depends which one you want, i5/8gb ram/256gb ssd/intel graphics is $1169 and i7/16gb ram/512 ssd/2GB dedicated graphics is $1499. But here's the important part: they both come with an amazing 3k 3:2 ratio screen that no other laptop offers. They both have USB-C and USB Thunderbolt 3 which is future proof. High build quality as well on the case. finger print scanner like others. Good speakers. And windows 10 signature which means no bloatware. To me it was the screen that made the decision very easy. When you have that much screen real estate it will make browsing, writing, programming, or anything much more enjoyable. Dell asks for $400 to upgrade to 4k, but the funny part is a 3k 3:2 ratio screen will still be better than a 4k 16:9 ratio screen. here's a pic of comparing the screens: Keep in mind, don't only look at the top of the screens, because at the bottom the dell doesn't start until after a thick bezel, while the huawei is full screen basically (91%).

      Nimo Kali what are the specs and price for the matebook

    • Nimo Kali
      Nimo Kali Month ago +3

      Yeah because you get something valuable in exchange for that bad camera placement: A 3:2 ratio high quality screen that no other laptop in the market offers, including dell which asks for a $400 upgrade for 4k, and it's still 16:9 ratio which has less screen real estate. Therefore the Huawei Matebook comes on top and u can look past the bad camera placement, however dell doesn't offer anything valuable in exchange for their bad camera placement, it's simply a bad placement. Next time try to use your brain a little bit before you post something.

    • Agnostic Realist
      Agnostic Realist Month ago +2

      so you're whining about the cam placement on the Dell, then you go out and get a Matebook which is placed just a few inches to the right of where Dell places their camera, but in the same lower region....that's quite the logic. lol

    On paper, sure great. Just popping in to mention how terrible an experience I've had with my XPS 15 9560 18 months in. The 100% worst experience with a computer ever. I'd rattle off all the issues I've had with it but I'd be typing all day. Let's just put it this way, if you want to use anything other than notepad it'll melt. On paper, great specs. In reality, volatile space heater with worst in class performance.
