XPS 15 Notebook

Dell XPS 15 (N00XL503) Design Design

- Anodised aluminium lid
- Brushed black metal
- LED-backlit controls
- Bulky but solid chassis
- Size 381 x 265 x ~35 mm
– Weight 2.8kg
   

The design is very attractive with impressive anodised aluminium lid, brushed black metal surrounding the keyboard and white led-backlit control buttons. We would have wished it to be a bit slimmer as it feels a bit bulky compared to some of its comepetitors and even the previous XSP line notebooks. But at least it is well-built and feels very solid as well.

- Poor quality keyboard
– Large multi-touch touchpad
   

If any part of the Dell XPS 15 is worth critising is definitely the keyboard. Even though the keys are well-spaced and the layout is great it just feels on the cheap side. That’s due to well noticable flex and a spongy feel while typing.

Luckily the touchpad does offer better experience as it is large and sensitive, it offers multi-touch gesture support and its surface is smooth and nice to use and so are the touchpad buttons which offer just right amount of feedback when pressed.
