Battery life is disappointing, especially as the XPS 15 is intended as a lightweight Ultrabook, although as a desktop replacement system it ticks more of the right boxes. It provides outstanding display quality and high-end performance at a competitive price, while still being slim and light enough to slip into a bag for the occasional business trip or weekend away.

Dell’s luxurious XPS 15 has a superlative screen and physical design that’s the match of Apple’s MacBook, and it’s got high-end components on the inside too. It’s one of the best premium Windows machines on the market, but Apple’s MacBook Pro has better storage, a longer battery and better value for money. If you need a powerful, premium Windows machine, this is top-notch.

Dell's XPS 15 is a valiant attempt to compete with the best premium notebooks but, ultimately, it falls a bit short. The blame for this lies with the display, which pads the price but doesn't add much to the user experience. Is it sharp? Certainly. But...
