Engadget Review

If you've been searching for a Windows-based alternative to the MacBook Pro, look no further than the Dell XPS 15. For a similar price, it offers comparable horsepower, a thin and light design and a brilliant 4K screen option. The one area where it really trails Apple is battery life: You won't want to stray far from an outlet unless you spring for the optional 18,000mAh mobile charger.
