With its designated 2.8GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU, 16GB of RAM and 512GB PCIe SSD, it’s very impressive and mighty in performing almost any tasks. You can open up as many tabs as possible in your browser plus other applications without it glitching.

Its keyboards feel flat and smooth but well spaced in such a way that typing with it is comfortable without tripping over yourself.

Its 4.1 x 3.1 inches touchpad is top notch and supports Windows 10 precision gestures. It’s so easy to use three fingers to switch between programs and applications and tap four fingers to open the action centre.

It offers a crystal clear audio, excellent sound producing quality. Playing an audio could cover a midsize conference room. Using the MaxxAudio Pro app to turn the bass up makes it louder.

Although the Dell XPS 15 doesn’t look like a gaming laptop, its Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU 4GB VRAM makes it play most highly sophisticated 3D games like Battle Field at very high graphics settings without lagging. When you are not running any game, the laptop will fall back to its original Intel HD 630 integrated graphics.

Its battery is perfect, and you can use for the most of the day, despite its 4k display and Nvidia Pascal GPU. It lasts eight hours on a full charge.

Its flaw is its webcam, which is built into the bezel at the bottom left corner of the screen and will face straight up your nose, its 720p webcam is on the blurry side and may not give a sharp display of some parts of your face.

Dell XPS 15 doesn’t generate much of heat even when playing big size applications, so you can be rest assured that you won’t have issues with its heat generation.

It comes with extremely and sufficiently useful applications like Dell Update to ensure you always have the latest version of the software, Killer Manager to allow you prioritise and specify applications that get into Wi-fi network. Using Dropbox app gives you an extra 20GB free space.


It costs an approximate value of 999.99 US Dollars, and its Naira equivalent is #360,216.398.
