So the pros: The screen on this thing is gorgeous (if you get the 4k screen) It actually has made my 27" 1440p monitor look bad. The entire laptop looks slick and is very light. The keyboard feels good. I updated to the latest bios and the only issue I had was the screen flicker (only on battery) but that eventually went away with a BIOS update.
Cons, I've had problems getting non 4k monitors to work at their native resolution when using them as external monitors. I haven't had a way to connect it to the USB C port, only with HDMI. I haven't had enough time to look into it to try and figure it out but know that could be an issue. I wish it had a displayport instead of HDMI.
The samsung SM 951 ssd that came with it isn't the greatest but it'll do.
I don't really use the trackpad because no matter what the windows settings I put it on to disable the trackpad during typing it never is disabled or delayed so my cursor moves all over while typing. I'm not sure if this is a Windows issue or an issue with the hardware itself but my solution has been to disable the trackpad and use a mouse. This works most of the time but there are times where I need to have the laptop well, in my lap and there is nowhere to use a mouse and it's frustrating.
The worst thing about it is the webcam. It's placed on the bottom so it makes video conferencing basically impossible because all the person sees is your fingers. Now, I'm assuming this was a design decision because of the tiny bezel. However, Dell could have made the top bezel just a tad bit taller and left the sides as narrow as they are) kind of like how apple did with the brand new macbook. If you don't video conference then this isn't an issue but now that I've been freelancing I'm in way more google hangout video chats than ever before so it's become a pain point.
Now, this was by far the most expensive thing I have purchased on Amazon and their customer service actually failed me pretty badly. The day after I bought the computer I found it for $100 cheaper on Microsoft's site, so I emailed the seller (not Amazon) if they would do a price match, or if not what my return options were. They never replied. So then I tried to talk to Amazon and they sent a message for me to the seller who still never replied. So I left feedback for the seller indicating how there was no response from them. They immediately replied to this and told me they would honor the price match. So I emailed back asking for details and they never replied to that. However, my review had been REMOVED from their page and I no longer could leave another review for that seller. So I contacted Amazon to see how to get the price match honored and they basically told me they couldn't help me. I also asked why my review was removed and they avoided the question. Eventually after 3 days of complaining an amazon representative finally gave me $30 amazon credit (random) The reason I felt comfortable making such a large purchase is because I was buying it on Amazon but if the seller isn't Amazon they basically don't care short of the product not being delivered to you. My only negative buying experience in 15 years on Amazon (and of course for the most expensive thing) I'm guessing the seller pointed to their email of offering to match the price match to get Amazon to remove the review without actually going through with their offer. It's pretty sketch that Amazon refused to explain to me why my feedback was removed.

This laptop has superior build quality, beautiful screen, and is as fast as you will need. For me it couldn't be any more perfect. However it may not be perfect for everyone. Yes, this computer has an i7 and a GTX 960M, so it may appeal to gamers as well as people searching for a regular performance laptop, but I would not recommend to buy this laptop as your main gaming computer. I mainly use this laptop for college and game on it very rarely since I have a gaming desktop at home. I'm not sure what the delay of the monitor on this laptop is, but it is a noticeable difference from the gaming monitor I use with the desktop. When playing games and putting too much stress on the GPU and CPU at the same time this computer cannot take the heat without going full jet engine, but this is completely understandable. If this computer was meant for gaming it would be much larger and have a much larger cooling apparatus. When I game on it, for most modern games the graphics must be turned to the minimum and the resolution set low, I was also surprised by how much a laptop cooling pad effected the thermals and helped game performance.
For battery is pretty good, I don't use it a lot on battery, but when I do it seems like it lasts a while. If you need a laptop with better battery the XPS with the 1080p screen instead of 4K would most likely perform better.
I don't plan on doing much upgrading to this machine since it's already pretty beefy with 16GB of ram and a 500GB SSD, but I watched a teardown and everything is easily accessible after removing the bottom cover. The bottom cover is only screwed on so no stupid glue to deal with, and the battery, ssd, and ram aren't buried underneath anything and are easily accessible, which I like since the only thing I will probably ever replace in this machine is the battery when it goes bad. I believe you have to take out the motherboard to replace the keyboard, but I don't think that will be as bad as it sounds since the cooling is attached to the motherboard and not the case.
As for aesthetics, this laptop is sexy. The 4K touchscreen is is flawless, it could be a little brighter, but it's close to perfect, the keyboard is satisfying, and the chassis is made of real metal and feels very sturdy. This laptop is just too nice looking.
The audio quality of the built in speakers is surprisingly good. I cannot comment on the webcam or microphone since I have very little experience using them, however to me they appear average. It is odd having the webcam underneath the display to the left of the Dell logo, but I don't really mind since I have it disabled anyway.
For the I/O, it's perfect for me with two USB Type-A ports, a headphone jack, SD-Card port, HDMI output, and a USB Type-C port. Don't really use the SD-Card or Type-C port (yet), but it's very nice having the Type-C port that can be used to connect a dongle for more USB's other video outputs, or anything else you can find on a dongle.
This laptop also comes with bluetooth which comes in handy with my wireless headphones.
My only real complaint about this laptop is the Dell software the came with it. It's called Dell Support Assist, and I actually liked it, it scanned my computer to make sure everything was optimized, updated, and running properly and it appeared to do its job well since I never really ran into any problems. What I didn't know is that the software doesn't actually come free with the computer, which I find ridiculous. A year after buying this laptop it asked me to start paying for software to keep the computer I just bought for $1500 optimized and running properly. When I asked customer support to extend this membership they refused, of course. This isn't as much of a problem for me, a more computer savvy person, but for people less knowledgeable than me this software is most likely an enormous help to keep their system running smoothly. All in all, for $1500 Dell should probably give you access or a longer membership to their software.
Since this is my only gripe with it and it does not actually have to do with the hardware itself, I'm giving this computer 5 stars.

-Upgrading/Repairing = Good
-I/O = Perfect for most people
-Dell Customer Support = You know how it is...
I would highly recommend this laptop to anybody who uses a computer for a large portion of their day. When this computer gets old enough and I decide to buy a new one I will most likely buy another Dell XPS.
That said, a bit of funky window handling is the only real annoying element of using this laptop. The battery life, keyboard responsiveness and feel, and the visual performance are very good. Better than my desktop even with its comparable video card.
