Are you looking for the best accessories for Dell's XPS 15?

We've put together a collection of the best stuff available now.

If we're making suggestions ...

Any of the above accessories should make a worthwhile addition to your Dell XPS 15, but you might be wondering where to start. If you foresee a lot of productivity work while sitting or standing at a desk, Dell's U2719D 27-inch external monitor should prove invaluable. It adds a lot of screen real estate, and it's fully adjustable so you can get it set up exactly how you'd like. It's even VESA-compatible for mounting on a stand or wall.

The QHD picture has a 60Hz refresh rate and 5ms response time, and color and contrast are spot on. Dell has dialed in its UltraSharp lineup, and the result is a sleek monitor with almost no bezel at all around the picture. There are plenty of ports for connecting your XPS 15, as well as other accessories. Our roundup of the best monitors for Dell XPS 15 has more options if this isn't the screen you're looking for.

Sticking with the workstation trend, adding a powerful Thunderbolt 4 docking station can turn your XPS 15 into a desktop.

When it's hooked up to your XPS 15, it will also deliver up to 98W of power to keep the PC charged up when you need to hit the road.
