How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Designed to compete with other high-end, big-screen laptops like the MacBook Pro, the XPS 15 has a great, full HD display, fast Intel processors, and a graphics processor that should be able to handle most current games. Battery life is also very good for a full-size laptop, and the XPS 15 should be able to handle almost anything you throw at it, including mainstream productivity apps, media-editing tools, and games. Just be prepared to pay a premium: if you want the fastest available processor, graphics engine, and a Blu-ray drive, you'll pay at least $1,699. Add a solid-state drive and you'll go well above $2,000, putting it into MacBook Pro with Retina display territory.
