Dell XPS 15 reviewed: one of the best 15in laptops on the market today

 

Dell recently refreshed its XPS line up of laptops, slotting in two new models and updating its XPS 13 Ultrabook to the latest Intel chip also known as Ivy Bridge.

With the XPS 15 Dell is continuing to deliver one of the more exciting laptop lineups. Not only does it sport enough grunt for serious work and play, but it does so in a wonderfully small package. The construction is excellent, it looks fantastic and...

Dell XPS 15 review: A long-lasting all-round entertainmenter

 

A tad expensive, but Dell's mighty XPS is a powerful laptop with great battery life and a generous range of features. Read our review

Blending power, panache and a generous range of features, the XPS 15 has been a regular fixture on the A-List with good reason. If you can afford the price of admission, it puts on a spectacular show.

Brilliant hardware, but appalling customer service

 

ile Dell customer support sat on their hands. But the only offer in the way of compensation was a cordless mouse when really given that dealing with Dell Customer Support cost me many many hours and over $600 in lost revenue. Another cordless mouse is...
