Staying in touch
Like most devices from Dell, the Dell XPS 15 is available with several configurations. You can customize these quite a bit to choose the specs you want. Different options drastically change the price of the XPS 15, ranging from $1,274 to over $3,000 if you max it out. While you can't get a touchscreen on the cheapest XPS 15 available, you don't have to max out the specs to get a touchscreen.
The cheapest XPS 15 model with a touchscreen is the 10th Gen Intel Core i7 variant with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti. Bumping up to include the touchscreen adds $294 to the cost, bringing the lowest possible total with a touchscreen to $2,009. Another reason for the bump in price is that the cheapest screen is only FHD+ (1920 x 1080), while the touchscreen is UHD+ (3840 x 2400). That means if you want a 4K display, you'll have to get one with touch.
Is it worth it?
Touchscreens on laptops aren't crucial to everyone. If you aren't someone who needs or wants to touch their screen, you can save quite a bit of money by getting a non-touch variant. The XPS 15 (9500) has a beautiful design that features extremely thin bezels. Any display you get will feature the same micro bezels and immerse you into the screen. Unfortunately, you can't get the UHD+ version of the Dell XPS 15 (9500) without touch. That means that if you want a UHD+ display on the laptop, touch will come with it.
The 15.6-inch display available on the Dell XPS 15 is anti-reflective and can reach 500-nits of brightness. If it meets the standard that Dell has set for years, the UHD+ touch display should be worth the jump in price compared to the FHD+ non-touch variant.
The latest 15-inch XPS
Dell's latest XPS 15 refresh is an exciting one. You've not only got a larger display, smaller bezels, larger keys, and touchpad but also enhanced internals. Just remember that to get a 4K display with touch that you'll have to pay extra.
