The XPS series by Dell is one of the premium categories with the best design and aesthetics. The Dell XPS 15 and XPS 17 has been completely redesigned this year and it looks stunning. The display on XPS 15 is very bright and color accurate with very narrow bezels and has higher pixel density compared to a 4K panel. The trackpad is also larger than the previous year’s model but some people report having a problem with it. The trackpad on some devices seems to be loose and there are two clicks on it rather than one.

The base model is priced at $1,299 with a 10th Gen Core i5-10300H, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Intel UHD Graphics, and a 15.6-inch display.

The 4K touch-screen display upgrade will cost $2,199 with the same CPU and GPU, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SS.

The Dell XPS 15 has 3 USB-C ports, two of which support Thunderbolt 3. It also has a full-size SD card reader and headphone jack. It has one of the most immersive displays on a laptop with very high brightness and great color accuracy but not a high refresh rate. Although the higher-end models have dedicated graphics card, the laptop is not for gaming. However, you can play modern AAA titles at low-medium settings. Due to its compact design, the fans get quite loud under load or prolonged gaming sessions.
