The 15.6" XPS 15 9550 Multi-Touch Notebook from Dell features a 15.6" InfinityEdge display with a 3840 x 2160 4K resolution and 5.7 mm thin bezels for your viewing pleasure. It's also a touchscreen so you'll be able to utilize touch gestures and commands in Windows 10 to further improve its accessibility and your productivity. Driven by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics card with 2GB GDDR5 VRAM, the XPS 15 is capable of handling multimedia playback and even games. Connect external displays using its HDMI and Thunderbolt 3 port for additional multitasking capabilities.

Powered by a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core processor and 32GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, the XPS 15 can efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. When handling a heavier workload, the CPU can reach up to 3.5 GHz thanks to Intel Turbo Boost technology. With two RAM slots, the XPS 15 can be upgraded even more, up to a max of 32GB. For storing your data and applications, this system has a 1TB PCIe SSD, which performs faster than a traditional hard drive, allowing you to boot up and load files in seconds. Should you need more room, you can connect external storage devices using its multiple USB ports and SD media card reader.

Access the Internet via 802.11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi and pair compatible wireless peripherals via Bluetooth 4.1 technology to free up USB ports. Dual-Band Wi-Fi enables you to connect to the 5 GHz band, which is less crowded and offers faster speeds. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, speakers, microphones, a 3.5 mm headphone and microphone combo jack, and a backlit keyboard. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

15" InfinityEdge Display
The XPS 15 features an InfinityEdge display with a 5.7 mm bezel for a seamless and immersive viewing experience. Additionally, with a 3840 x 2160 4K resolution, the XPS 15 offers crisp and clear visuals for your entertainment. Moreover, it features 100% minimum Adobe RGB, so you get a true representation of Adobe color that's rich, vivid, and bold. With the Dell's PremierColor application, webpages, videos, and images are automatically adjusted into Adobe RGB format for accurate colors.
Durable and Light
Built from a single block of aluminum for a sturdy, durable chassis, the XPS 15 also has a scratch resistant Gorilla Glass display. Furthermore, the palm rest is made from carbon fiber, which is strong, thin, light, and cool to the touch.
Thunderbolt 3
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
Built for Business
The XPS 15 comes preinstalled with a few applications and features that will help you along the way:

  • Dell Data Protection | Encryption - Protects data across multiple end-points. IT admins can remotely manage encryption policies to easily meet compliance regulations right out of the box.
  • Dell Data Protection | Protected Workspace - Keeps your information safe so that if an attack occurs the malware is sealed off and a safe environment is restored in only 20 seconds.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

    15.6" XPS 15 9550 Multi-Touch Notebook is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Laptop that compares with Apple Macbook pro I'm a programmer and I use my computer for my work every day. This laptop has all the hardware specs I need for my daily activities. The only cons I can see is the speakers low voice compared with other devices in the same category plus the battery life which drains very fast in 3-4 hours of work. *** Very Important**** There is a bug in the Intel graphics driver that comes with this computer, you need to download the latest drivers from Intel NOT DELL and force install them to solve the monitor flickering issue and blue screen after sleep or hibernate. This is very important and I have spent two days finding a solution after I gave up with DELL useless support.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent computer I am using this mainly for image processing with Adobe Photoshop. Pros - (1) 32GB RAM and 2GB dedicated video ram. (2) Ability to select color space up to Adobe RGB. (3) Computer is fast and stable. (4) Works well with blue tooth devices. (5) Runs for approximately 5 hours on a fully charged battery. (6) Can set touch pad to automatically turn off when using a mouse. (7) Sturdy and compact construction. Cons - (1) Lacks a wired network port. (2) Lacks a DVD drive (trade off for extended battery life). (3) Some program menus (Photoshop and Crime Zone) do not work correctly at 4K resolution. Resolution had to be reset to lower resolution.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Questionable Product Quality and B&H Service! 29th day after I got it, the screen quit working! B&H refused to take it back even though I emailed them immediately on that date. It was on a Friday pm, and they were closed early so that was the only way I could contacted them. I wasn't able to talk to them until Sunday am (they are closed on Sats) which was 2 days beyond the 30 day return window. They refused to issue a RMA but gave me Dell phone number. Dell Customer Service was good and after a few verifications, had issued an on-site repair order to replace the screen. One should be careful with B&H return policy when placing an order! I have been a long time customer but now don't know! That why the 2 stars instead of 1.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jury still out I have had this a couple weeks. Overall I like it but a few thoughts: PROS - very fast, fast startup, fast ddownloads, handles all my software instantly. Beautiful ddetail in the screen which is perfect for processing photos. CONS - Winddows eddge and google chrome keep crashing. DDon't know if it is their problem or this laptop. I plugged in some headphones and lost all the soundd when it unplugged - had to reinstall the ddrivers to get the speakers to work. It gets very hot when pluggedd in. dddddddddddid I mention that the dddddd key sticks? Annoying Overall, the pros outweight the cons I think, however nothing is perfect in this life!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Laptop Not only the most expensive laptop I've every purchased, but also the finest. Exceptional screen. Very well built. Not a lightweight. Touch pad is very good. Audio quality is fair...loud and spectral but tin canish. Only problem after a one week of use is Edge will occasionally, and on its own, close after initial startup. I'm very happy with the purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Apple Replacement B&H is always a great dealer! I got this to replace a Mac - I'm walking away for apple after 30 years - they just seem to want to make toys and video games now. I am mostly very happy with it, but Dell support is a joke and I guess if you use a lot of different pieces from different manufacturers you are bound to have some issues (there are a few conflicting programs/hardware that need to be disabled to make the computer work well). After that is all set up though, it does more than an apple for less money. I miss my apple trackpad, but the trade off to need to carry less portable hard drives, be able to plug in all my peripherals without buying more apple dongles and an as good, if not better, monitor make this worth it. I only wish apple had not abandoned its loyal users...Now I am on to the task of converting all my data...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad product The laptop looks nice and video is very beautiful, but I'm not sure I received a lemon or not. My laptop crashes 4-5 times a day. Very disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced my MacBook Pro My MacBook Pro died and I wasn't gonna spend over $3k for a new one and still need to buy a bag full of adapters. So, after more than 20 years of Apple, I bought my first Windows computer. Presonus Studio One with Studio192/DP88 combination works just fine on this laptop with no need for an adapter. PreSonus RM16ai required a Startech/Mac adapter combination. About $40. Premiere Pro and all the other Adobe CC applications have identical layout as on a Mac. Touchscreen is quick and trackpad is sensitive and comfortable. 32g ram on XPS as opposed to Apple 16g max. dbrand skin recommended, but applying requires a little patience. Bottom line: I saved THOUSANDS by not buying a MacBook Pro and got a better computer. Glad I switched.
