Dell announced that the XPS 15 will have a Frost (white) color option later this summer. In addition to having a striking white finish that some people may prefer, the Frost version also features an arctic white woven glass palm rest that resists smudges and grease. Apart from the color swap and material change of the palm rest, the Frost version is the same XPS 15 that earned a 4.5 out of 5 in our review. The Frost version costs an additional $50 and will be available later this summer across select configurations of the XPS 15.

In his review of the XPS 15, our executive editor Daniel Rubino mentioned that he preferred the white design and materials that at the time weren't available on the device. While we don't recommend it, Rubino has even seen someone mark up a different white XPS device with a permanent marker which they then wiped off.
