Carrying the XPS 15 around in your hands is a pleasure, thanks to the rubber strips on the bottom. A lot of these metal-bodied laptops feel like they’re just one slip away from disaster, but you’d have to try to drop the XPS 15 for destruction to happen.
The XPS 15’s keyboard could be bigger. The backlight-bleeding issue could use some work. But the overwhelming amount of people interested in this size of laptop buy these machines for performance, and that’s where the XPS 15 shines.
Sure, it’s not quite the tiny, game-changing laptop that the XPS 13 was, but that’s not entirely fair. As anyone who has suffered sibling rivalry knows, sibling means sibling. Not twin. Siblings have to find their own path forward, not just follow, and the XPS 15 does that quite well.
Correction: After getting a report from a reader that the XPS 15 does indeed support charging over USB Type C, I have updated the review to reflect the information. PCWorld regrets the error.
