who's gettin an xps17??
I have XPS 15 model from 2017
Still works perfect and will give at least 2 years more service hopefully.
Plan to replace it 2021. Lets see
Possible device link xps 17
What about the touch screen capability?
I don't feel omitting the number pad on 15" 17" laptops was a good idea! All these years not an issue. I Don't see how it's very practical using a separate keyboard.
Could you do a compare review on budget to mid budget 17" laptops please. Acer websites throw up an error when trying to check other models configs or 17" models.🤔
Love the way you explain stuff in your videos to the point! Liked and Subscribed!👍🏼
how many laptops do you change every month for "personal" use except the one that you use regularly?
Hey Dave, I have seen all your XPS 15 and XPS 17 videos. Appreciate the quick review 🙂 Could you please compare the thermal performance of the XPS 17 9700 and XPS 15 9500? I would like to get the XPS 17 solely for the better cooling/thermals with the vapour chamber so if it turns out the difference is negligible, I will get the XPS 15 for the smaller footprint and weight. Thanks! 🙂
These reviewers be like- THIS IS A GREAT MACHINE WITH EVERYTHING IN IT THAT YOU MAY NEED BUT IT "DOESN'T FIT IN MY BACKPACK"!!
I have heard that the battery cycles are very limited kindly address that issue
2:20 so are you saying the 1080p panel is better?
What about editing 4k footage? How well does it do and how accurate is the color from display to end product? Thank you.
If you do any photography, 4k is a must. Like the difference is insane that you can actually see the picture instead of a bilinear blur
send your old laptop my way Dave
8:22 It's not as big as 17 inch old Macbook pro. Dell is actually one of the smallest 17 inch laptops ever.
XPS17 or MacBook pro 16? Would love to see your comment or better a video about that
Please review the Inspiron 15 7000 2020 version.
You have reviewed 2015 one
How much does it cost tho
i want to use it for photography and some video editing. is the 4k really not worth it?! im torn between the 15 and 17!
Dave, you gotta compare this to the Dell Vostros with the 1650ti and the same i7
Why can't they put numpads on these, at least on 17 incher dammit. Lenovo it is for me then.
Sounds that Dave is quite disappointed with the retail model… Lol
I have the old Precision 5510 (Skylake Xeon proc) that is still under warranty. The main heavy duty purpose is for photo post processing. Recently I thought I had a problem with my camera sensor and tried to locate this strange fiber that kept showing up in my pictures. Finally found the issue, the 4k monitor on the laptop has the fiber in it. After so many years of usage it almost seems as if the monitor is deteriorating. Since I still have the warranty I will see what Dell will do. In the four plus years of owning this laptop I have had the main board replaced (died the first year) and the NVMe drive replaced which Dell thankfully provided with the latest image of Windows 10 on it.
You're videos are the boss!
I dont understand, you criticized a lot of the lack of AMD chip in razer laptop and with this new xps you dont have any problem to use intel cpu.
I got my new XPS15 a week ago , and indeed, the first 2 days had a bit of a wooble. *Totally gone now and did nothing at all*.
Actually it could be the engineering samples had the same issue at the beginning and it got itself settled as well.
My previous XPS15 is now 4 years old (9550) and it's integrity is still top notch after a ton of traveling. A key reason why I did stick to buy an XPS15 as my main working machine.
Not said, but the XPS is a great machine to run 3D engineering design tools like AD Inventor on the go.
I read somewhere that the trackpad issue has been fixed for all units shipping on and after June 2020. Just ordered mine so hopefully mines alright
I still think xps17 would be perfect if it will have a numberpads 😢
A number pad would have made me buy it… typing is difficult without a number pad
What the name of that back pack ?
Dave is probably the friendliest person to ever exist.
Can you plzzz make a video on how to fix the wobble of the trackpad, pretty please.
My last XPS 15 throttled so badly I could barely watch a YouTube video due to the severe lack of VRM cooling, so I struggle to trust Dell and these new models
What are the general thoughts on the 2020 XPS 15's battery cycle rating?
I do not recommend anyone buy these laptops. I am sending my XPS 15 back. They are priced on par with the Macbook Pro 16, but unlike Apple, Dell has a focus on specs and aesthetics rather than user experience. At this price it should be perfect, but it is not.
First, the display. Youtube reviewers rave about the 4K display, using adjectives like "stunning" etc. In reality, the display is not perfect. It is great for watching 4K video, or using dark themed apps, but when using something with a white background, the viewing angles and uniformity are not good. It looks blotchy and there is a slight glow around the edges, and if you move slightly to one side, say 15cm off centre, the other side of the display will become dim much too quickly. I have used other Dell laptops with Sharp IGZO displays, and they all have the same problem. My Macbook Air 13 is vastly better, like looking at a clean sheet of paper in comparison.
Secondly, the trackpad. Even if you ignore the known fault, the trackpad is not great. It has a mechanism where you need to click harder towards the top, and cannot click at all in the top 25%. In practice that means you need to click in the middle or in the lower left corner. You cannot use the entire surface with one finger like on a Macbook, unless you resort to tapping. This makes the large size of the trackpad pointless, only serving aesthetic purposes.

Any idea if the 8 core i7 processor will be available in the UK?? Would suck if I’m waiting around for nothing and might as well just get the available 6 core option now. Hate that you can’t configure the specs yourself here either :/
About to start uni looking for a good laptop (no set budget).
What would u recommend in terms of an ultra book?
All I will be using it for is uni work, research, streaming YouTube and Netflix and maybe gaming
Thanks for talking about music production and latency!!!
