It's been a day since I got my XPS 15. So far, I'm loving it. My previous laptopwas a Macbook Air (2012/ 11 inch) and switching from it to the XPS was one of the best choices I made in my life.
First of all, I love the keyboard. It's a huge improvement from the Macbook Air, and I prefer the XPS keyboard over every laptop I have used. It feels amazing, and the click is so satisfying. Absolutely amazing.
Second, the display. The display is breathtakingly amazing. I ordered the FHD version instead of the 4k version, but the quality on this thing is just... WOW. I can only imagine how amazing the screen on the 4k will be.
Third, the design. I know it's not a very new design, but after using a macbook with extra thicc bezels, the XPS has super thin bezels. It's just so pleasing to look at.
I got an i7 core (8th gen) and it is super fast. The download time is fast. Like, really fast.
Finally, the delivery time. I know this doesn't really relate to the XPS itself, but I was surprised at how fast it came. It was supposed to come on the 28th or the 29th, but I got it yesterday. It only took 8 days, so I can say I'm pretty satisfied with the delivery speed.
So far, I can't seem to find any.
One thing that does bother me is that the fans turn on and off randomly, but it's not that big of a problem for me. The laptop does not get super hot for me as well.
Overall, I definitely recommend the XPS 15. Although I might've spent all my money on it, I can say 100% it was worth every single cent. Thanks for reading and I'll be happy to answer any questions! (BTW, I promise I'm not a DELL employee haha)
Overall? Still great, still good. What I'm noticing is a little bit of coil whine. I don't mind too much. The carbon gets dirty quite easily (figured that out when my friend's greasy hands touched them) but it's still easy to wipe off. Still having a great experience!
It will certainly be an upgrade if your previous laptop was the 2012 Macbook Air. I'd say the recent Macbook Pro's are comparable in aesthetics. I still prefer Dell XPS b/c you are getting comparable specs/aesthetics for less.
