The newest version of Dell's impressive XPS 15 (7590) is now for sale through Dell's website (opens in new tab). The Dell XPS 15 has been a staple of Dell's lineup for years thanks to its impressive display and wide range of powerful configurations. The latest model continues with that trend and takes it even further with an option for a model with a 4K OLED display, Intel Core i9 processor, and an NVIDIA GTX 1650.

The most affordable configuration of the Dell XPS 15 starts at $1099.99. It comes with a 9th generation Intel Core i9 processor and 8GB of DDR4 memory. The lowest configuration comes with Intel UHD Graphics 630 rather than the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 that is available on the higher models.

The highest end configuration ranges from $2,099 to $3,099 depending on how large of an SSD you'd like and what display you select. There are options for a 4K UHD OLED display without touch or a version with touch. The highest end of the Dell XPS 15 has an incredible amount of power thanks to its combination of the latest Intel Core i9 processor and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650.

To help keep the PC going while having so much power, the Dell XPS 15 has a massive 97WHr battery available, though on some versions you can elect to get a smaller 56WHr battery instead.

Portable (and affordable) power accessories we love

Each and every one of these charging gadgets will keep your favorite gear and gadgets going for longer, and none of them costs more than $30.

VisionTek 8,000 mAh micro-USB power bank (opens in new tab) ($13 at Dell)

This compact dual-output powerbank can speedily recharge any and all your devices, thanks to a two-amp "fast charge feature," using its micro-USB out port. Its simple design includes an LED indicator, and it costs about as much as a single ticket to the movies.

Panasonic eneloop AA batteries (opens in new tab) (From $13 at Dell)

Panasonic's rechargeable batteries are among the best available, and just a couple of them will keep your favorite remote, mice or other peripherals powered up when you need them. They're also eco. And the company's affordable charger (opens in new tab) fits and charges both AA and AAA batteries at the same time.

Belkin Qi Wireless Charging Pad (opens in new tab) ($30 at Dell)

This unobtrusive Qi wireless charging pad looks good (and kind of like a UFO …) and easily charges all your Qi-compatible device up to 5W. Its LED indicator lights up when you're charging. And it costs just $30.

  • Are you able to upgrade the RAM and SSD later?
  • Yes, you're able to upgrade either.
  • An i9 with no integrated graphics is the most unbalanced configuration I have ever saw
  • It depends on what you are doing. Lots of CPU intensive tasks are not games, so wasting power on a dedicated GPU when you are looking for a mobile system that can do, say, video encoding, is ridiculous. CAD, Photoshop and other such tools can use a lot of CPU and memory, but no significant amount of GPU resources. That OLED screen, if properly calibrated, could be a great boon for photographers on the go...
  • I don't want a high end processor, I'd be happy with an i5, 16GB RAM and an OLED but Dell want to squeeze you for money so only make it available on processors that will thermal throttle.
  • I5 with 16GB RAM and a ultra high res display is the sweet spot for me, but they seem like a unicorn device.
  • I really wish this had more thunderbolt 3 ports. I'd be happy if just one windows PC manufacturer built a notebook that had 3-4 thunderbolt 3 ports.
  • Why?
    You can Diasy-Chain TB3 devices (just make sure any Monitor/Display is the Termination on the end of the chain.)
    Or, you can buy one of the many good TB3 port expansion devices that add in things like Ethernet, HDMI, DP, Micro-SD, etc. and even support Power Transfer.
    This is the way I go so I can have my Dual-monitor/Mouse/Keyboard/USB backup Drive/Power Charging all ready and connect it easily with one cable.
    When I travel, I have a small non-powered TB3 port expansion (that also support Power Charging) for similar use.
  • Because daisy chaining is still spreading the single 40GB output across multiple devices, rather than allowing full data output to each and every device. It's a very niche market that would require it, but that market does exist.
