Dell XPS 15 Review

The new XPS 15 (also called the XPS L501X) is a completely redesigned multimedia notebook from Dell. Sporting a JBL sound-system with subwoofer, NVIDIA GT420M dedicated graphics, and an Intel Core i5 processor, this system is designed with performance and entertainment in mind. In this review, we take an in-depth look at the new XPS and see how it stacks up against the competition.
  • Intel Core i5 460M Processor (3MB cache, 2.53GHz)
  • 15.6-inch 1366 x 768 glossy display with LED backlighting
  • NVIDIA GeForce GT420M with 1GB DDR3
  • Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
  • 6GB DDR3 memory
  • 500GB 7200rpm HDD (Seagate Momentus 7200.4)
  • Realtek gigabit ethernet and Intel 1000 802.11b/g/n wireless
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 6-cell Li-ion battery (56Wh)
  • Dimensions: 15 x 10.4 x 1.3-1.5-inches
  • Weight: 6.21lbs
  • MSRP: $899.99 (Closest configuration)
Build and Design

The new Dell XPS 15 has a silver on grey color scheme, using metal panels and plastic for the body. Compared to past XPS designs that were trend setters that distinguished themselves from the lower models, the new XPS doesn't seem to spark much visual interest. In theory, mixing alloy panels with a brushed metal palmrest and backlit keyboard usually yields good results. The redesigned XPS 15 doesn't seem to really set itself apart, though, from the standard Inspiron 15R until you take a much closer look. Standing back five feet, the panels look like average plastic on the exterior, and the body itself even seems more bloated than the 15R. Overall, it seems like Dell missed a big opportunity to make the XPS-series the unique notebooks they once were. The result is a rather bland looking multimedia notebook where its budget-oriented sibling --the Inspiron 15R--outshines it.
