Engadget Review

Dell’s largest XPS laptop in years is appealing to anyone who demands the most performance possible and an enormous screen. It’s a bit hefty, but still far smaller than 17-inch laptops from years ago.

Pros
  • Gorgeous 17-inch screen
  • Most powerful GPU in an XPS
  • Great performance all around
  • Strong battery life
Cons
  • Heavier than competing big screen laptops
  • Could use a lot more ports
