Features and Design

Operating System

With Windows 10 Home – get the best combination of Windows features you know and new improvements you’ll love.
Put on stunning display

Put on stunning display

Redefined InfinityEdge display: Enjoy top camera placement and a 16:10 display that features a stunning edge-to-edge view, now with 921k more pixels on UHD+ for seamless productivity.
 
Display like no other: Take full advantage of HDR content’s superior dynamic range with Dolby Vision™, which can deliver colours never before seen on SDR PC displays. Dolby Vision content can deliver highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are up to 10 times darker. Plus, the stunning VESA certified DisplayHDR™ 400 display on the optional 4K+ panel enables over 16 million colours that have more depth and dimension than ever before.
 
See every detail: The optional 4K Ultra HD+ (3840 x 2400) display offers pinpoint accuracy for all of your computing needs. See the detail of every pixel in photos without needing to zoom in or see more content while browsing the web. 
 
Colour that pops: Equipped with up to 100% Adobe RGB and 94% DCI-P3 colour gamut, the optional UHD+ display delivers saturated colours while a 1650:1 contrast ratio allows you to see the brightest brights and darkest darks. And 500-nit brightness provides more clarity in bright light, like outdoors, so you know your work reflects true-to-life colours.
 
Easy on the eyes: An Eyesafe® display reduces harmful blue light and maintains vivid colour. It’s the first panel to intelligently manage light energy at the source – selectively reducing harmful blue light and dispersing it across the light spectrum.
 
Stunning indoors and out: Keep your vibrant visuals going when working outside or in a bright light with a 0.65% anti-reflective coating which provides less glare in both these scenarios in order to maintain a strikingly glossy screen.
Fuel your wildest creations

Fuel your wildest creations

Desktop-caliber creativity in a laptop: Packed with staggering performance typically only available from desktops, 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors bring desktop-caliber creativity to your laptop. With up to i7 processors with 8 cores and 16 threads, 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors help you capture, edit and share your creations faster than ever before. Designed for performance and portability, so you can go wherever your vision takes you.
 
More creating, less waiting: GeForce® GTX 1650 Ti laptops are built with the breakthrough graphics performance of the award-winning GeForce GPUs. Dedicated GPU power accelerates the creative apps you use every day.

Dell Power Manager with adaptive performance: This laptop uses adaptive performance based on the latest Intel® Dynamic Tuning Technology. With this new predictive and adaptive engine, our laptop is actively changing the power of its CPU to optimize your specific workload, increasing performance when you need it.*
 
Faster memory, more storage: Your system boots and resumes in seconds thanks to up to 2TB of solid-state drive storage. Multi-task in a flash even on intense applications with up to 64GB of memory.
 
Killer™ Wireless: With advanced Wi-Fi 6 technology and theoretical throughput speeds of up to 2.4 Gbps, the Killer™ AX1650 is nearly three times as fast as the previous generation of 80MHz 2x2 AC products. It prioritizes streaming video, communication, and game traffic in your system for fast, smooth online experiences.
 
Advanced thermal redesign: From dual fans separated to spread heat over a larger area, to dual heat pipes and hidden exhaust venting through the hinge, thermal design ensures you have the best performing system in the thinnest form factor possible.
Dell Creator Edition: Expand what's possible

Dell Creator Edition: Expand what's possible

The XPS 15: Dell Creator Edition is fully equipped with the creative tools you need to make magic happen faster and better, so your art can be pushed to the edge.

Unleash the power to create: With Intel®’s latest 10th gen, 8 core, 16 threads i7 processor, you can keep at your most demanding workloads for even longer.

Effortless multitasking: Enjoy smooth Adobe filter performance or robust layers of preset sample libraries in your music production with up to 64GB of memory.

Faster results: The rendering of high-resolution graphics and videos accelerates with performance class NVIDIA® graphics.

Import without delay: A full SD card slot makes the XPS 15 a mecca for photography by enabling rapid import of RAW images.

Vibrant colours: A 100% Adobe RGB display empowers you to edit your photos with confidence in their colour.

Infinite storage: Massive flash storage provides plenty of room for images, designs or tracks.

Essential connections: Multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports are ideal for the full setup—speakers, mixing boards, monitors and other essentials whether at home or on stage.

Minimum recommended configuration: i5 processors, 16GB, 512GB, (discrete graphics are recommended for music production or graphic design).
Take your view to the edge

Take your view to the edge

Experience the world's smallest 15.6-inch performance class laptop*. It features a stunning, new 4-sided InfinityEdge display that shows off a 5% larger 16:10 screen and 92.9% screen to body ratio, the best in its class*.

Masterful craftsmanship

Cool and light: For the black palm rest, carbon fiber inspired by the aerospace industry allows for maximum strength and minimal weight. 
 
Superior screen: The latest Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 is strong, as well as impact and scratch resistance. 
 
Diamond cut sidewalls: Anodizing provides a superior, scratch-resistant surface, but here, edges are dipped a second time to further prevent damage from repeated plugging and unplugging of peripherals. Using this finish on the metal achieves the perfect colour without using paint, which could chip away over time. 
 
The finest details: Stainless inlayed logos are laser cut out of a sheet of stainless steel and dropped into the machined-cut outline by hand. 
 
Elevated essentials: Elements like the display, keys and touchpad are all larger for an easier, more optimized user experience. The XPS features a 5% larger display, 14% larger touchpad and a an edge-to-edge keyboard with larger key caps.
 
Easier to open: The new twin coil press fit hinge is designed to maximize the screen to body ratio and enable 4-sided InfinityEdge. The new hinge design makes it easier to open, while staying stable when you are using the touchscreen.
 
Revolutionary webcam construction: The new XPS 15 webcam isn't just smaller (measures only 2.25 mm)—it's better. A new 4-element lens delivers sharp video in all areas of the frame, especially in dim lighting conditions, while temporal noise reduction significantly improves video quality. Finally, the lens is assembled with precise machinery to ensure all points of the image are in focus.
 
Sacrifices nothing: Features an 8% thinner design with no sacrifice to essentials like the headphone jack or full SD card to conveniently move images from your camera to your laptop while you are on the go.
Immerse yourself in sound

Immerse yourself in sound

Serious about sound: Expand audio into an immersive 3D soundscape with our quad speaker design and Waves Nx® 3D Audio for Speakers. Any music, movie, or game plays with depth and width that seems to defy the laws of physics. The XPS 15 is the first-ever laptop featuring Waves Nx® 3D audio for speakers tuned by multi-Grammy Award® winning producer, Jack Joseph Puig.*
 
Mic check: Top-mounted mics provide for a better audio experience in Skype conference calls and for far-field Cortana, allowing you to talk to your laptop from up to 14ft away.
Ready when you are

Ready when you are

Start in an instant: A built in lid sensor allows you to open the lid and power up in milliseconds, no matter what power-state you are in.
 
You are the password: Choose between two secure, personalized ways to log on. The infrared camera with Windows Hello recognizes your face, unlocking your XPS with secure facial recognition technology. The fingerprint reader integrated into the power button lets you log on with just a touch. 
 
Work or play all day: You'll experience the longest battery life of a 15-inch performance class laptop* - up to 24 hours* on a Full HD+ model when using productivity applications like Word or Excel or up to 16 hours, 52 minutes* when streaming Netflix. On our UHD+ panel, get up to 13 hours and 46 minutes* using productivity apps or up to 8 hours and 27 minutes* of Netflix streaming.
