I recently got a Dell XPS 15 9500 for work and have come to really enjoy it. I have been a MacBook Pro guy for years but I needed a windows machine and felt that this was the right fit for me. I have read a lot of great reviews on this laptop and I am happy with the purchase let me explain why. 

Design 

I love the design coming from a MacBook Pro user every day to a Dell XPS 15 I can see how people can make the transition the touchpad is just like the MacBook Pro with the same gestures and large style of the MacBook Pro. The keyboard is designed as well to be similar to a MacBook Pro with the short reach allowing you to type faster I love using it. The keyboard sports the power button and fingerprint combo sensor. 

Screen 

I love the 15.6 inches 4K display with very minimal bezels I think the screen looks amazing with clear color and contrast. The touch screen part I am still getting used to I do not really use it that much but I am sure I will get used to it or find a reason to touch the screen. 

Charging And Battery 

I like how again how the Dell XPS 15 9500 resembles the charging of a MacBook Pro. I can use any of the three USB-C ports to charge the device. I like the non-removable battery and the battery life that gets around 6 to 8 hours depending on what I am doing. 

Ports 

On the right side of the laptop, you have an Audio Jack, Full-Size SD Card slot, and USB-C Slot. On The left side of the Dell XPS 15 you have two USB-C ports. If you want video out, network jack, or any other kind of port you will need to buy the dongle for a few dollars. 

Hardware Choices 

Dell XPS 15 9500 comes customizable. I went with the 32 gig ram, i7 Intel processor and 1TB SSD hard drive which has been great for me. But the laptop is very customizable you could go with a smaller drive, less ram, or an i5 Intel processor. You can go even better than mine with an i9 intel processor, 64 gigs of ram, and a 2 TB SSD. All units come with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 1650 Ti with 4 gigs of dedicated GDDR6 ram. Your choice of hardware specs depends on your budget and needed configuration.  All versions come with Microsoft Windows 10. 

Final 

I would rate this as one of the best laptops. I have used it for ages it’s a great piece of hardware that runs amazing. I have no complaints I would recommend this device over any other Windows 10 laptop on the market.
