Dell XPS 15

Originally reviewed by Mike Jennings 17 February 2014

Best 15-inch Windows Laptop

Key features:
  • 15.6-inch 3,200 x 1,880 IPS touchscreen display
  • Nvidia GeForce GT 750M graphics
  • Windows 8.1
A powerhouse of a 15-inch laptop, the Dell XPS 15 has the specs to make it the best high-end Windows laptop on the market. Built from high-quality aluminium and carbon fibre, it's also just 17mm thick. The star attraction is the 3,200 x 1,880 resolution to give it a MacBook-rivalling screen quality. It also packs an excellent backlit keyboard and a decent pair of speakers with all the key connectivity boxes ticked. The Intel Core i7-4702HQ processor and beefy GPU ensure it has the performance to match the sleek look even if the average 4 and half hour battery life is no match for the MacBook.There’s multiple configurations available with a cheaper XPS 15 (£1,179) offering a smaller battery and a 1,920x 1,080p HD screen but if you go for the top version, you will not be disappointed.

Price: £1,799
