Dell XPS 15z Notebook Review

January 27th, 2013 by admin software


hothardware.com – There’s just no question the XPS 15z is a beautiful laptop. Yes, it looks a bit like the MacBook Pro, but is it really a bad thing? Dell will continue to be the model of its own, and the keyboard / trackpad experience is currently the best. 1080p display is just beautiful to look at, and the weight / thickness here just to be seen and felt in person to be believed. It looks absolutely fantastic and the build quality is exceptional.

    I think that no matter what I think PC is still better than Mac and more features to it. I would stay a PC forever caused you can do both sides like play games and just do work Mac cant it only do work and that sucks PC would rule forever in history of computers.

    hey,does it get too much heated during use and does it make loud sound while playin game/?? plzzz rply!!

  11. Comment by Mlangeh

    is the chrome bezel around the laptop a problem? a lot of reviews have said that the build is not good, it feels cheap and it starts to come off..
    any input would be great help, thanks

    The noise this thing makes will make you want to kill yourself to make it stop. It is pure torture not a laptop. Overheating–you will blow through at least 10 motherboards the first year which Dell had no qualms about replacing if you bought the “total care against total rip off” contract. Other than that you are screwed. It’s a used car and a lemon at that. Avoid like the plague. The display is el supremo crappy and it is slow. Plan to wait for it to do anything involving computing.

    how is the build quality, I’ve heard that it is “crap”

  14. Comment by HotHardwareVids

    - Heat isn’t a problem but noise definitely spins up under heavy load. I don’t think it’s annoying but definitely noticeable.

  15. Comment by Shampew

    What did you think about the noise / heat? Other reviews have said the noise and heat were a problem.

    Okay so I have had it for awhile, and it is really nice! It boots quickly, doesn’t have the freeware everyone talks about, and has a nice feel. It is heavy, but it isn’t to bad in terms of bulkiness.

    You’re right, it doesn’t come close. Because, other than the OS it runs, it blows MB Air out of the fuckin’ water.

  18. Comment by Muamarz

    i’m not gonna deny it. it does look like a macbook pro replica. especially the paralleling grill speakers and the battery indicator.

    Hi! I’m planning to buy a better graphics card for the Dell XPS 15z. However I’m not sure whether there are any other graphic cards that fit inside the Dell XPS 15z. So basically is there any other graphic card that is better than the NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M 2GB that will fit indside the Dell XPS 15z???

    I have an iMac and I would love to own this laptop. I like the best of both worlds.

  21. Comment by Joe Burnford

    He never said the thinnest 15″ notebook or laptop, he said pc therefore limiting it to the windows camp

  22. Comment by Joe Burnford

    ‘Thinnest 15″ pc available’ it’s a good thing it wasn’t laptop as there is the mb pro and razer is about to release a 17″ that’s both thinner and far more powerful

  23. Comment by gmodertom

    No Headphone or Microphone Jack!? Thats a requirement for me :(

  24. Comment by Luda12Plyr

    no one can match Apple. :p

  25. Comment by lovesthecity3

    Well it got lost in transport by Fedex, but one thing is the XPS 15 has a full size keyboard, and the XPS 15z does not.

    Try updating your video card.

  27. Comment by BreezeyEdits

    It does it all of the time though

  28. Comment by SuporeMaster

    That’s a crash.

  29. Comment by BreezeyEdits

    I use an HP. I play GTA all of the time, and whenever I do. My screen goes black, and to get it back up, I have to either close it, or hold the power button to shut it off. Is that overheating? It does it ALOT too.

    my laptop overheated four times today. I was freaking out thinking it was a hardware malfunction, I just lowered the max “speed” of the processor and now it’s working fine. Getting the same FPS in games anyway :)
