Review: Dell XPS 15

Dell’s latest 15-inch laptop into a portable, video-editing powerhouse

THE DELL XPS laptops are some of the most popular, thin, and light Windows computers for the money. The 13-inch model has long been a WIRED favorite (8/10, WIRED Recommends), and the new 15-inch gets the same upgrade that its smaller sibling got earlier this year: an OLED display.

That new 3.5K OLED touchscreen helps make the Dell XPS 15 one of the best 15-inch laptops on the market. It also has plenty of power, thanks to the latest Intel processors and a great trackpad and keyboard. The only downside is the battery life.

The 2021 XPS 15 uses the same 11th-generation Intel chips as the previous model. The big news here is the new OLED screen, which, we should note here, is optional. As with the XPS 13, you have to opt for the more powerful Intel i7 chips to get the OLED option. That means the screen on the i5 base model remains unchanged. That's a 1920 x 1200-pixel FHD+ screen.
