Dell has continued its incredible form of late that started with the Dell XPS 13. The XPS 15 is one of the most attractive 15-inch laptops you can buy today, and has some of the most powerful components, too.

There are many specifications of this machine available including models with PCI-E-based SSDs and Ultra HD touchscreens. There's something for everyone here. The only thing to watch out for with this laptop is its slightly sub-par battery life, which barely stretches beyond five hours. This isn't bad when you consider how powerful it is, but road warriors should probably look elsewhere.

Play games, edit photos, do what you want on the XPS 15. It can handle it.

Dell has announced the XPS 15 will soon be upgraded to newer Intel Kaby Lake processors and a faster Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics cards. It should happen some time in January, so it's worth waiting before buying unless you can get a good discount.
