Dell XPS 2015: 4K, bezel-free displays, and Nvidia graphics

by

Dell XPS

Dell has unveiled a raft of new XPS devices, all vying for your cash this holiday season.

The new lineup includes the world’s first hybrid with a 4K display, as well as the smallest 13in notebook on the market.

Dell XPS 15

The first of the bunch is the Dell XPS 15, a compact 15in laptop that weighs around 1.7kg.

Powering visuals is an InfinityEdge 4K, 3,840 x 2,160-pixel touch display. It’s also the only laptop display with 100% minimum Adobe RGB colour.

Dell describes the XPS 15 as offering “powerhouse performance”.

That comes courtesy of a sixth-generation quad-core Intel i7 processor. There’s also the added option of a dedicated Nvidia GPU with high-speed GDDR5 vRAM for gamers on the move.

There’s an impressive 16GB of RAM on board, and SSD/HDD options up to 1TB.

Battery life is claimed to fall between 11 to 16 hours on a single charge.

Dell XPS 13

Next up is the Dell XPS 13, which Dell claims is “the smallest 13in notebook on the planet”.

That’s thanks to the edge-to-edge IPS panel, which has allowed Dell to squeeze the large display into a form factor more suited to an 11in screen.

The actual display has a Quad HD resolution – that’s 3,200 x 1,800 pixels.

Providing the processing heft is a sixth-gen Intel i7 processor, with SSD storage options available up to a 1TB capacity for nippy file access.

The Dell XPS 13 is also equipped with up to 16GB of RAM, and features a Thunderbolt 3 port.

Battery life is the real seller here, with a claimed 18-hour run-time – impressive stuff.

Dell XPS 12

Last but not least is the Dell XPS 12, a 2-in-1 laptop/tablet hybrid that transitions using a magnetic connection.

The laptop is reasonably lightweight at 1.3kg, and features a 12.5in 4K display – the only hybrid on the planet to feature such a display, according to Dell.

It also includes two cameras – an 8-megapixel rear-facing unit and a 5-megapixel selfie-shooter to boot.

All devices will ship with Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 operating system on board.

Yep, looks like I've found my XPS 15 sandybridge replacement. 100% AdobeRGB, 16-32GB memory, i7 option, 4K, makes this a photographers dream.

Yep, agreed. Just a shame it comes with W10! I recently went W7-W10 on my old XPS 15 and it has been a bit of nightmare. So many problems with software not working properly (Adobe CC6, breezebrowser pro, Lightroom 6), exception warnings popping up all the time, the start button no longer working at all and explorer.exe crashing completely. I had to create a new user account, all whilst do a little edit for a client! For photo editing I'm going back to W7 on the XPS and will check back in on W10 in another year when it should be more stable for professional use. This new XPS does have some pretty tasty hardware.
