My new laptop arrived and setup was a breeze. However within a week the batter stopped charging and was disabled. After hrs on the phone with Dell and everyone assuring me this was a unique problem, they sent me a new system. guess what same problem 10 days later. Another 2 days on the phone with their customer service folks in Hyderabad who kept trying to fix the problem. Ultimately they sent in a technician who replaced the battery and the system has been working fine since then. They extended my warrant by 4 months to compensate me for my troubles- i guess i should have just bought a refurbished one which is what I essentially got for buying their top of the line laptop.
Now a month later, the wireless card has started acting up. If I step into a room away from where the router sits, it randomly disconnects and tries to connect. Its disconnected 90% of the time. Funny thing is I have a 6 year old Dell Inspiron which works fine and streams video movies without once dropping the signal sitting right next to this machine. I've tried new wireless routers but the problem persists. Called their customer service and they claim it is a software issue without even looking at it and want to charge me to troubleshoot the problem. Dell's service was one thing going for them- but i'm afraid that has started to suck too now.
I would strongly discourage anyone from buying this unless you enjoy being on the phone with a service technician being bumped from hardware to wireless to software to XPS support teams.Other than that it seems like a pretty decent machine that looks sleek, works well when no issues.
The design is similar to the MBP, yet keeps a distinctive style. The keys on the keyboard are well spaced and the key travel works just fine and I find it easy to use. And of course, the backlit keyboard really comes in handy. I have had this feature before and love it. The screen resolution and brightness is fantastic, very sharp and clear. The speed is, well, fast. What else can I say. Everything just zips right along. The sound quality is above average for a laptop. The large touchpad is well placed and also easy to use.
I really cannot fault this computer at all. Even though nothing is perfect, I have yet to find anything I don't like. I am just not the type that will complain about the cup holders in a Lexus. That is pointless.
If you want a high end laptop, then I highly recommend this Dell XPS 15z. Give it a try and see for yourself.
I am not certain how it is gonna work after it comes back from the depot but I will keep my fingers crossed.
