Update: It looks like Dell has also added a fingerprint reader option for the new XPS 13 (9360) as well. Like the XPS 15, the option can be added to any configuration for $25.
If you've been holding out on picking up Dell's latest XPS 15 (9650) refresh in anticipation of snagging one with a built-in fingerprint reader, now's your chance. Initially revealed as an optional upgrade to the refreshed XPS 15 when it debuted in early January, the fingerprint reader is now available as an option when configuring your own XPS 15 from Dell's online store.
The best part of the upgrade? It's relatively cheap, costing only $25 to add to any configuration. As you'd expect, the fingerprint reader is fully compatible with Windows Hello, meaning you can use it as a means of securing both your PC and compatible apps.
The fingerprint reader is a nice addition to an already pretty powerful laptop. The refreshed notebook now packs not only Intel's latest 7th-generation Intel Kaby Lake processors, but NVIDIA's GTX 1050 graphics as well. On top of that, you can pick from FHD and 4K versions, depending on how many pixels you want to push.
Will you be picking up and XPS 15 (9560) now that the fingerprint reader is available as an option?

Review: HP's Spectre x360 15 is gorgeous, but battery life disappoints
