I love being wrong (sometimes). Case in point, the Dell XPS 15. I loved last year's model with its heady mix of looks and power, so much so that I didn't think it could get much better. But the latest XPS 15 ($2,249 reviewed, $999 starting) is a lot better. This marks the first time the XPS 15 gets an OLED display, which is in itself monumental. But the system also packs an overclockable Core i9 processor and pairs it with a discrete Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU, making for one beautiful beast. Yes, they also fixed the webcam.
There are, however, some trade-offs for all that beauty and power -- the Dell XPS 15's battery life is just over 8 hours. The non-OLED Dell XPS 15 battery life lasts slightly longer at 8 hours and 48 minutes. But on a notebook this stacked, I'm betting the eight-hour battery life is a tiny flaw you'll be willing to overlook. We certainly have, which is why we named the XPS 15 one of the best 15-inch laptops, best video editing laptops, best 4K laptops and best laptops for college students.
