I bought 3 Dell laptops before. Have being using Lenovo for the last several years, starting with a T60, then T500, T530, and most recently a T540p with a 3K LCD screen.
I would have just stayed with Lenovo. But sadly for T540p Lenovo chose to equip it with a full keyboard, which puts the main portion and mouse pad off-center to the left. I used this arrangement for a few months and feel this is a really bad design. The position of hands becomes very awkward. When one sits in front of a laptop naturally eyes and hands are aligned, preferably to the center of the screen. With the full keyboard my hands are forced to break the alignment. I wonder how many people use the numeric keypad on the right to justify this keyboard?
Anyway, I started searching for a laptop with 3K or better 15" screen, and a simplified keyboard centrally placed on the laptop. There are some ones with smaller screens, such as X1 Carbon. But for 15" the only choice I find is Dell XPS15.
However after receiving the laptop I found a couple of issues that are disappointing.
1) The fan noise. As many people have said before, the fan noise is quite loud and it turns on frequently. This is very annoying.
2) The touch pad is far from accurate. The mouse pointer frequently wander or click unexpectedly.
3) Screen is glossy and reflective, instead of the matte LCD that T540p has. Anti-glare film does not work because it's too big to put on without air bubbles. However MacBook Pro is glossy as well. After a while one mostly get used to it.Read more ›
The 15.6" LED backlit display screen is stunning with its 3200x1880 pixel resolution - 5 times the resolution of HD. It makes it great for zooming in on photo/video editing. It's the best looking screen that I have ever seen on a laptop.
The NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M graphics card with 2GB of memory makes movies and videos look sharp and clear and games play fast and smooth on the high settings.
The Waves MaxxAudio Pro 5.0 sound system sounds good but I like the Beats Audio system on my HP 17.3" Pavilion laptop better. Crisper tones with a clear bass. This sound system sounds a bit muffled.
I especially like that this laptop has a touch screen. It is so much easier to use than a touchpad or a mouse.
It was easy to set up. It took less than 30 minutes to go through the eight steps of the initial set-up and to be up and running and connected to the Internet.
This has the 1TB hard drive, which will hold a ton including all my pictures and music. There's also a 32GB solid-state drive. It's a cache drive, which helps make it really fast. It boots up in less than 10 seconds. There's 16GB of RAM and has the Intel i7-4712HQ quad core 2.2Ghz processor.
There's an HDMI output if you want to connect it to a larger monitor or your big screen television. It comes with 1 - USB 2.0 port and 3 - USB 3.0 ports. I like that it has a backlit keyboard, which my HP doesn't have.Read more ›
OK, I'm being overly critical here--if I were being severe in my review, I would be reviewing Windows 8.1 which would have been good for docking one half star, at least. But Dell doesn't make Windows so that's another tale for another day. That said, I can live without a DVD drive; most pieces of software you'll be installing these days are downloadable. Which leaves network access: wireless networking has come a long way in the past few years but nothing is as fast (yet) as a wired network port. If you're going to leave out a DVD drive, PLEASE keep a wired Ethernet port so that you can download these massive software packages quickly. I understand Dell was trying to have the laptop as light as possible, but the wiring for an Ethernet NIC can't be that much. Major disappointment here.
So what do I like about the XPS15? Well, you can't beat its weight! It's almost not there. The touchscreen is wonderful, even though I had to beat away years and years of habit not touching the screen. It works very well with Windows 8.1. The amazing graphics is beyond compare, BUT most of the applications I've downloaded (slowly, grrrrrrr ...) just can't work with that immense resolution! They all appear *tiny* by default. Some apps are unable to increase their typeface/font size so you end up with almost unreadable type. It's annoying at best.
Boot up times are screaming. I have never had a machine start so fast--well yes I have, but it's a Chromebook which doesn't count, I suppose. Love that it's ready for use within 20-30 seconds.Read more ›

It turns bad super fast. Heat builds up, touch pad becomes not sensitive, and sometimes it is not even possible to power it up. And guess what, it's within the first year.Published 14 months ago by Tianyu Li
