XPS 15

We've been waiting on this one since we first saw it back at Computex in the summer. The all new Dell XPS 15 is now official and it's available starting today!

As we already knew from our first look back in Taipei, Dell did to the XPS 15 exactly what we hoped it would. It took the XPS 13 and made it a little bit bigger. So now what we have is a top of the line 15-inch Ultrabook in the form factor of a 14-inch. And it's beautiful.

So, while we may have seen it in the flesh earlier this year we didn't actually know what was inside it. Now, we do, so here's what we're looking at:

  • Upto 6th Gen Intel Core i7 CPUs (both i3 and i5 available)
  • 15.6-inch display
  • Full HD 1080p non-touch or 4K (3840x2160) resolution touch display
  • 8, 16 or 32GB DDR4 RAM
  • Intel® HD Graphics 530 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 2GB GDDR5 graphics
  • 500GB or 1TB HDD + 32GB SSD storage or 256GB, 512GB or 1TB PCIe SSD storage
  • 56Wh or 84Wh battery
  • 2 x USB 3.0 ports with Powershare, 3.5mm headset jack, full sized SD card reader, Thunderbolt 3

Much of the fit and finish is the same as we've already seen on the XPS 13. Aluminum and Carbon Fiber construction, precision trackpad and a backlit chiclet keyboard all make the trip over.

So, what about price and availability. The new XPS 15 will start at $999 and is available from today, October 8, in the U.S. from Dell.com.
