The new updated Dell XPS 15 9500 has been refined, just as the XPS 13 did not long ago. There have been some significant, yet subtle, adjustments to the design, including serious 10th Gen Intel performance and improved video graphics too.

One of the major upgrades to this new XPS 15 is the display. It now boasts a true infinity edge display, with the bottom bezel having been eliminated, meaning the screen to body ratio is now 92.9%, making it perfect for streaming movies or gaming, especially if they’re in 4K.

It still has the same aluminium design as the previous model, but the tweaks of larger keys on the keyboard and a 62% larger touchpad make it easier to scroll, swipe, and type. There are also two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB-C port, full size SD card reader, and the usual headphone jack. You also get a USBC to USB adaptor too.

You may find that you still need a travel docking station or hub if you have a lot of accessories, but this XPS 15 will power through most tasks without a flicker. Something to note though, when it’s working full-pelt it can be a little noisy, because it doesn’t have NVIDIA MaxQ technology. With battery life of around 8 hours on the 4K display you may want to choose the FHD display should you need the battery to last longer.

All in all, the new XPS 15 from Dell is following in the footsteps of its smaller sibling, the XPS 13, and heading towards being one of the best Windows laptops of its size, with workstation power in a sleek design – and with the possible switch to more permanent working from home the larger screen laptops are going to be in high demand.
