Dell XPS 15 Ultrabook Touch Screen
Performance. Stunning display.
See the difference over eight million pixels can make in the new XPS 15, available with 15.6 UltraSharp Quad HD+ touch display and powerful processors.
Very sharp Quad HD+ display; Attractive design; Strong performance; Great audio
Quad HD+ displays are relatively rare for TVs, and even more so for notebooks -- which is one of the reasons Dell's refreshed XPS 15 is so interesting. Its crystal-sharp 15-inch touch screen is a delight for video and photo editors.
Similar to the MacBook Pro, the XPS 13's lid is made of aluminum but has a darker finish than Apple's machine. Unlike the smaller XPS 13, which now has an aluminum lid and undercarriage, the bottom of the XPS 15 remains carbon fiber. Two ridges run parallel to each other across the width of the bottom, elevating it from the surface of a table or your lap.
I really like that the all-black keyboard deck is coated in a soft-touch finish. It felt extremely comfortable on my wrists. The polished stainless-steel trim along the edges is a nice aesthetic touch, too.
Packing a quad-HD (3840 x 2160-pixel) touch-screen display, the XPS 15 is one of the sharpest screens you'll find on a notebook. The MacBook Pro with Retina display is no slouch, but it has a lower, 2880 x 1800p resolution.
Watching the same trailer side by side confirmed the results of our lab tests. A 1080p trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens looked equally spectacular on both displays; the Dell's had a greener tint, and the Empire's banners looked a bit redder on the Mac, but both were a feast for the eyes.
You'll get a near desktoplike experience when typing on the XPS 15's large keyboard. The keys are well spaced, and the caps have a nice concave shape that cups your fingertips. The keys have a fairly deep travel of 1.6 mm, and require 63 grams of force to press
On the 10FastFingers typing test, I averaged about 60 words per minute on the Dell, which is close to my desktop score of 60 wpm. Still, I preferred the snappier action on the MacBook Pro's keys; as a result, I averaged about 66 wpm on the MacBook Pro.
The XPS 15's spacious 4.1 x 3.1-inch touchpad has the same finish as the rest of the deck. Executing Windows 8 gestures and two-finger scrolling was smooth for the most part. There were several instances, though, where, instead of scrolling down a page, the cursor would select icons or text. The soft-touch finish -- similar to that on the rest of the keyboard deck -- didn't feel as comfortable here, and made for slightly less-accurate navigation compared to what I experienced with the MacBook Pro's touchpad.
While hidden from view, the XPS 15's speakers make their presence known. When I watched the Star Wars trailer, the Millennium Falcon's engines roared throughout the testing lab. David Guetta's "Play Hard" remix, streamed through Pandora, made it feel like I was in a nightclub, and Ariana Grande's voice soared in "One Last Time." At max volume, though, bass tended to distort, regardless of genre.
The speakers, powered by MaxxAudio by Waves, let me switch among four sound profiles: Movies, Music, Voice and Gaming. Of the four, Movies was the most balanced, and brought out voices while still keeping lower-end tones defined.
On the left side of the XPS 15 are two USB 3.0 ports, a mini DisplayPort, an HDMI port, and headphone and power jacks. Over on the right are two more USB 3.0 ports and an SD card reader. It's a nice assortment.
The XPS 15's webcam delivered bright images, but they had a bit of visual noise, which degraded sharpness. Although my face was well lit, I could see a number of speckles, and my brown hair was mottled
It's not just the XPS 15's screen that impresses. Inside our notebook was a 2.3-GHz Intel Core i7-4712HQ processor, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB solid-state drive. I had no trouble playing videos, running scans and browsing the Web simultaneously on this machine, but in our performance tests, it fell a bit short of the competition
