Being one of the well-known laptop brands in the world, Dell indeed has a multitude of laptops for its customers. With a wide range of different series and models, Dell surely has a laptop for everyone whether it is for creative work, editing, gaming, or even normal usage.

Despite having a few laptop series, the series that catches the most attention from the public’s eyes is the XPS laptop series. From the design and performance to the price of the laptop, the XPS 15 series is one of the best laptops series from Dell.

What is so special about Dell’s XPS 15 laptops that makes the series carry a premium price tag? Read on to know the reasons that justify why the XPS 15 series are priced at the higher end.


The XPS series has a great and beautiful display; whether it is XPS 13, 15, or 17, each XPS series has its pros as it is equipped with great display features. The XPS 15 series has 2 resolution options to opt from which are 1920 x 1200 px and

3840 x 2400 px. The 1920 x 1200 pixel screen is equipped with a Full HD InfinityEdge non-touch Anti-Glare 500-Nit Display, whereas the higher-end XPS 15 laptop 3840 x 2400 pixel is equipped with Ultra HD InfinityEdge Touch Anti-Reflective 500-Nit Display. Depending on your purpose of the laptop, both of the versions have their advantages.

Not to mention, the XPS 15 laptops also have a perfect 15.6-inch 4K display. With the 4K display, you can have a dynamic and mesmerising experience when using the laptop be it watching a movie or editing a video. An added bonus is that most XPS 15 laptops are equipped with touch displays making it easier for users to browse and use laptops. However, the touchscreen laptop may cost you a bit more than the non-touchscreen version. Thus, if you wish to save yourself some extra money, you can opt for the lower-end XPS 15 laptop that comes with a non-touch display.


When talking about the performance of the XPS 15 laptops, all XPS 15 models are backed by Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti video cards but with different processors. The lower-end version of XPS 15 is equipped with an Intel Core i5-10300H processor, whereas the higher-end versions are backed by either Intel Core i7-10750H or Intel Core i7-10875H. The processor is basically the engine behind your computer processing critical information and instructions. For Intel Core i5 processors, it is often recommended for users who mainly use laptops for everyday tasks such as document creation, web surfing, productivity applications like Microsoft Office & Microsoft Excel, and even basic gaming. But if you are focusing more on creative work such as editing and rendering, then the Intel Core i7 processors would be a better option as it is able to work on heavier tasks and activities like high-definition gaming, video editing, high-end content creation, and development.

Thus, XPS 15 laptops are given a premium price tag because of the high-end processors that help you get your tasks done without any hassles.


Another factor contributing to the premium price tag of XPS 15 laptops is the sleek design of the XPS 15. If you are someone that values design and aesthetics, then the XPS 15 is surely meant for you as it is now lighter, thinner, and even has a smooth silver CNC aluminium lid that matches the keyboard, touchpad, and edges of the laptop. With dimensions of 13.57 x 9 x 0.7, the XPS is compact but the only bottom line of the XPS 15 is that it weighs around 4.5 lb (2.05kg) which may be a little too heavy to be carried around. As for the ports, the XPS 15 comes with three USB-C ports and two of them being Thunderbolt 3 ports for extra-fast connectivity. Next, the XPS 15 also comes with a SD card reader and a headphone jack whereas, at the side of the keyboard, you’ll see two speaker grilles that will provide you with the best sound experience.

Overall, the design and build of this stylish laptop look rigid and sturdy which will definitely render you at least a few years of usage.


Last but not least, in terms of battery life, all of the XPS 15 models have a good battery life as they are built in with a 6-Cell 86WHr Integrated primary battery. Depending on the workload and your personal usage of the laptop, the XPS 15 can work up to 9 hours 45 minutes for regular web browsing activity and will easily last all day if you are only using it for office work. However, if you plan to stream or binge-watch your favourite Netflix series or K-drama, you will need to have the charger on standby as the XPS 15 is powered with a 4K display that may consume quite a high amount of battery.
