Amazon India Link —- I’ll add the lik as soon as its available

Dell has now launched the Dell XPS 15 convertible laptop. This laptop is a great device, here is all the information you need to know about this laptop.

Built

The top panel is made of aluminium and the whole body feel very durable. Its dimensions are 35.4 cm * 23.5 cm and is 16 mm thick, the laptop does feel a bit uncomfortable to hold but when put on the tent mode or kept on a table, it is quite nice to use. The speakers are places at the bottom and their positions changes to the back when put at the tent mode, thus giving a bit of muffle.

Screen and Webcam

It has a 4k panel with 400 nt of brightness thus providing a great viewing experience. The bezels are very thin thus providing the infinity edge display. The webcam is located at the bottom which gives a up-nose angle but it is fine when used in tent mode, it also has windows hello and a finger-touch sensor at the top right of the keyboard. It is a touchscreen.

The Maglev Keyboard

It comes with a Maglev Keyboard, which means that it uses magnets instead of springs or switches. It does feel different but you will get used to it very quickly. The key travel is less than 1mm but the tech used in the keyboard feels very comfortable.

Battery

It packs a 75 watt hours battery providing roughly 5 hours of battery life. the battery life is a bit lower that I expected so carrying a charger is preferable.

Port Selection

The post selection is fairly limited as it doesn’t have a USB a port nor an HDMI port, but it does have 4 USB c ports, a micro SD slot, an headphone jack and a Kesington lock

CPU, GPU and storage

It has an i7 8705G Kaby lake G CPU and an AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics card providing a fairly good experience while gaming. The CPU is not as good as the new coffee lake versions but is good enough for editing and other multi-core stuff. There is a glitch where whenever the user inputs 3 keys at the same time, some other key is also registered in the input, I think that this is a software issue and can be fixed with a software update. Removable dive but the RAM is not expandable.

BenchMark Test

The following test was take at 1080p resolution and at High settings

  1. Overwatch —- 92 FPS
  2. Fortnite —- 56 FPS
  3. Rainbow Six Siege —- 72 FPS
  4. BattleField 1 —- 55 FPS
  5. Doom —- 61 FPS

Overall views

The laptop is nice but not for heavy gaming and can be used for light gaming. The device is good for video editing, it you are a student and a creative person, this laptop is for you. The laptop is good at its price. It is quite better that the original XPS 15. It also has a dedicated pen.
