Back in the nascent days of IT, business was done on pebble screens that were dwarfed by the heavy plastic housing in which they sat.
We’re now at the end of the line of those first gawky iterations, face to beautiful face with an infinity screen that brings the ultimate, visual experience, and there’s no finer exponent than the XPS 15 from Dell.
The showcase feature of this stylish laptop – its edge-to-edge display – sits politely in an ultra-thin bezel. The user gets treated to a 13 x 9.7 x 0.66’ notebook whose footprint is Cinderella-delicate, leaving competing models such as the Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 and the MacBook Pro very much the ugly sisters. At 4.4lbs, the XPS 15 is also the lightest of all its market relations.
The infinity touchscreen really sets the tone for the premium aesthetic of the XPS 15, whose brushed aluminium lid and soft-touch key deck are a casual luxury.
For extended viewing periods that might involve researching, reading or spreadsheet editing, you’re in fine hands with the XPS 15’ generous 15.6’ display which brings super-sharp images, and a Mardi Gras of colour range and intensity that leaves rivals in the shade.
The party continues through the high pixel density of 282.4 pixels per inch (ppi), a sharper offering than the MacBook Pro and Surface Book. This is particularly helpful for reading, navigating through fine-lined menus and gazing at photos of the jaw-dropping detail; there’s even new joy to be found in navigating through desktop wallpapers.
Available in full-HD and UHD, workers will get more battery life from the former which is as crisp as the most scrutinising of corporate eyes could wish for, with a functionality that is equally C-suite.
The XPS 15’s keyboard is comfy, supporting snappy, responsive typing and the 4×3’ touchpad allows swift and smooth navigation from corner to corner which plays out flawlessly on the infinity screen.
Not long ago, commitment to ultra-portability and optimised viewing might have allowed doubts to creep regarding connectivity, but that doesn’t apply to the XPS 15 whose Swiss Army knife of ports lives up to standards set by any consumer notebook. On the left are a USB 3.0 port, a USB Type-C port with Thunderbolt3 support and an HDMI port for connection to external projectors and monitors. On the right side are an additional USB 3.0 port and a full size SD card hatch for building on existing external storage. A lock increases workspace security.
By definition, the minimal bezel of the infinity display also reduces webcam space. The XPS 15 gets around this by placing the front-facing camera below the screen, so that video conferencing is easily achieved.
Windows 10 mobilises off a 6th—gen Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor with 16GB RAM and 512GB of NVMe storage, enabling the XPS 15 to decimate spreadsheet work and breeze through multitasking, even when streaming a 1080P video simultaneously.
So long as business-class encryption hardware is in place, the Dell XPS 15 will simply not let you down, as it has everything that business users will need.
Great performance, a solid battery pack and tactile keyboard harmonise through its showpiece infinity display, which makes this laptop a pleasure to work with.
Being smaller and lighter than rivals puts a big green tick in that all-important mobility box, making this the perfect office companion for commutes and extended business trips alike.
