Đánh Giá Dell Xps 15

After several years of the same stale, hefty chassis, the Dell XPS 15 finally has a new look. It’s a similar redesign khổng lồ the one the XPS 13 got earlier this year, & the same caveats apply. Listed out here, the tweaks Dell has made may seem insignificant, but they địa chỉ cửa hàng up lớn a machine that looks and feels lượt thích an upgrade.

The XPS 15’s base mã sản phẩm starts at $1,299 và includes a chip core i5-10300H, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, hãng intel UHD graphics, and a 1920 x 1200 display. This mã sản phẩm is really for anyone who just wants to browse; if you need any sort of computing power, you’ll want to spring for the i7.

Currently, you can max the XPS out with a chip core i7-10875H, 64GB of RAM, a 3840 x 2400 touchscreen, và a 2TB SSD for $2,988. Dell says there will be i9 options in the future, but I doubt I’d recommend those for most shoppers anyway. Not only will they cost more, but I have trouble believing a sản phẩm this thin can really make the most of such a hefty processor without cooking itself lớn death.

Our reviews of Dell XPS 15 (2020)


Verge Score 8 out of 10
*
The new XPS 15 has three USB-C ports as well as an SD-card reader, an audio jack, and a lock slot. No more USB-A, though it comes with a dongle.
Last year’s XPS 15 sported a chunky bottom bezel with a large Dell logo sản phẩm on it. That’s gone. Not only does its omission contribute to a more premium look (I always got major năm ngoái Inspiron vibes from the old bezel), but it also gives you some more screen khổng lồ work with.

Say hello khổng lồ the 16:10 aspect ratio, another welcome addition khổng lồ the XPS 15. The touchscreen, made of Corning Gorilla Glass 6, has a 3840 x 2400 resolution, one of the highest resolutions you’ll find on a consumer laptop. It’s a world away from 16:9. I could comfortably use a couple of different windows and apps without having to zoom in or out và stack up dozens of Chrome & Edge tabs without getting too cramped.

There’s no OLED option yet this year, which is probably wise. That was a battery suck và hard to lớn justify for everyday users. But this display is still nothing to lớn sneeze at. I measured it up khổng lồ 426 nits, but even at low settings in bright light, there was almost no glare. Colors were also spot on và quite vivid. (The screen covers 100 percent of the Adobe RGB gamut.) It’s all a joy to use, & I’m dreading going back to a máy tính with a 16:9 panel.

It has carbon fiber palm rests, metal sides.
It’s not just the screen; Dell has refined the rest of the chassis as well. You’ll see the same carbon-fiber palm rests và aluminum lid that are a staple of the XPS line. (I love the carbon-fiber texture, but it’s controversial & takes some getting used to.) But the metal bottom plate now also covers the edges & corners, which were black carbon fiber before. The large, visible display hinge has been replaced with a smaller, cleaner-looking one that’s entirely out of sight.

The new XPS 15 is just 0.7 inches thick, which is 5.5 percent smaller than last year’s model.
At 4.5 pounds & 13.6 x 9.1 x 0.7 inches, the new XPS 15 has the same weight as last year’s mã sản phẩm but a slightly smaller chassis. (It’s 5.5 percent smaller, to be precise.) It’s also a bit more compact (but heavier) than the 16-inch macbook pro (4.3 pounds, 14.2 x 9.8 x 0.8 inches) & smaller and lighter than the Razer Blade 15 (5 pounds, 14 x 9.3 x 0.8 inches).

Dell has also placed speaker grilles on each side of the keyboard. (There are two tweeters in the base.) The XPS comes preinstalled with the Waves MaxxAudio Pro driver where you can enable 3 chiều audio and toggle between various presets. Music sounded good, & the 3d feature made a noticeable difference.


Agree khổng lồ Continue: Dell XPS 15 (2020)

Every smart device now requires you to lớn agree to lớn a series of terms và conditions before you can use it — contracts that no one actually reads. It’s impossible for us lớn read và analyze every single one of these agreements. But we started counting exactly how many times you have khổng lồ hit “agree” to lớn use devices when we review them, since these are agreements most people don’t read & definitely can’t negotiate.

Final tally: there are six mandatory agreements và nine optional agreements to lớn use the XPS 15.


XPS keyboards and touchpads have always been among my favorite máy tính xách tay peripherals, và Dell has made tweaks to lớn both. The glass touchpad has grown by 62 percent (it’s 5.9 x 3.5 inches), making it one of the biggest you can get on a Windows machine. It’s as smooth and easy lớn click as ever. The keycaps are 9.7 percent larger than last year’s (they’re noticeably bigger), và the keys are snappy with 1.3mm of travel. I could maintain over 140 words per minute with very high accuracy. That’s much higher than I’ve scored on any recent laptop.

A couple of keys have moved around: the left and right arrows are larger than those of last year’s model, extending all the way up to the bottom of the Shift key, and the nguồn button (which includes a fingerprint reader) is now in the top-right corner. If you don’t want khổng lồ use the fingerprint reader, the infrared webcam supports Windows Hello facial recognition as well.

Finally, Dell has nixed the USB-A, HDMI, and power ports from the previous model; this one has three USB-C (two of which are Thunderbolt 3, và you can charge with any of them), a full-sized SD-card reader, a wedge lock slot, & an audio jack. That means the XPS 15 is now close to lớn MacBook Pro levels of connectivity, though the card reader is a bonus feature that you don’t see every day. The XPS also ships with a USB-C khổng lồ USB-A dongle to help with older peripherals.


The redesign is the main reason to lớn buy this XPS 15, but the new processor and graphics card inside are both upgrades as well. Multitasking performance was as good as expected from an eight-core 10th ren processor & healthy amount of RAM. I was able lớn run around a dozen Chrome tabs plus Slack, Spotify, YouTube videos, & some downloads in the background without a problem.

The Nvidia GTX 1650 Ti is a midrange graphics card, though. It’s not a great option for gaming unless you’re willing lớn bump the eye candy down. Anyone looking for a 15-inch gaming system has better options from MSI, Alienware, and Razer in or below this price range — và if you’re at all willing lớn consider a 14-incher, the exceptional hãng asus ROG Zephyrus G14 awaits. But the 1650 Ti can lend a hand in creative work và other demanding productivity tasks.

This XPS 15 took four và a half minutes to lớn export a five-minute, 33-second đoạn phim in Adobe Premiere Pro. That’s on par with results we saw from the 15-inch Surface Book 3 (with a 1660 Ti Max Q và a quad-core core i7-1065G7), and faster than the 16-inch táo macbook pro with a core i9-9980HK và Radeon Pro 5500M graphics. It was (unsurprisingly) slower than Gigabyte’s creator-focused Aero 15 with the same i7-10875H and an RTX 2070 Super Max-Q, which finished the same task in just two minutes & 42 seconds.

The XPS 15’s keyboard is still my favorite keyboard on any laptop you can buy.
Unfortunately, as much as the XPS 15 has changed on the outside, the previous model’s struggles with cooling & power consumption remain. The laptop’s dual fans were often audible when I was multitasking, và they could be heard a room over when I was using Premiere Pro. The touchpad và palm rests stayed cool, but the keyboard was often toasty when the laptop was under any kind of load, và the undercarriage was often so hot during these times that I couldn’t hold the device on my lap. I don’t think Dell has quite figured out how lớn cool these chips in such a thin chassis.

In my first few runs through our battery test, which involved using the XPS 15 as my primary work driver on the Better Battery profile with the screen around 200 nits of brightness, I was only getting between 2:30 và 3:30 of juice. After troubleshooting the results with Dell, I found that the problem was McAfee (the 30-day trial of which comes preinstalled on the system). This program is apparently a huge drain, & after removing it, I started seeing around five hours & 45 minutes. I guess the moral of this story is that you should uninstall McAfee (which, of course, presents the question of why Dell is putting crapware on its $2,000 máy tính xách tay in the first place).

It’s not perfect, but it’s an XPS.
Almost six hours of battery life isn’t terrible for a system with an H-series processor, a discrete GPU, & a high-resolution screen. But it’s a somewhat disappointing result compared lớn some competitors. My colleague Tom Warren got around seven hours out of Microsoft’s 15-inch Surface Book 3 with a similar app and browser load, and you can expect around eight hours out of the 16-inch apple macbook Pro. The XPS only did a little bit better than the Gigabyte Aero 15, which has a more powerful GPU and an OLED screen; I got five hours và 22 minutes out of that workstation with the same methodology.

(Chrome is, of course, a power-intensive app. But switching out khổng lồ Microsoft Edge didn’t improve things much. I got eight hours out of a standard 1080p video clip rundown test, but I doubt that many people are buying a $2,300 máy tính just khổng lồ loop movies.)

The battery life, the fans, & the cooling are marks against the Dell XPS 15. But they also aren’t new issues for this computer. It is disappointing that Dell hasn’t yet figured out a better thermal thiết kế or a way lớn cool a stronger GPU. & even for a workhorse like this, that battery life is only so-so.

But the primary features that have always made the XPS line a compelling buy — the exceptional keyboard và touchpad, the premium build quality, and the gorgeous screen — remain. & the various thiết kế tweaks, including the spacious bezel-less display, the wider keycaps, the slim size factor, & the expanded speakers conspire to give the XPS a modern, chic look và an upgraded user experience. If you’ve wanted lớn buy an XPS 15, but have been waiting for Dell to ditch the dated design, this model is what you’ve been waiting for.
