The Dell XPS 15 (9510)’s OLED screen is bright and vivid, complimenting a laptop with strong performance and slim bezels. Thescreen upgrade does, however, shorten battery life.
If we’ve learned anything about the best ultrabooks over the past few months, it’s that it’s hard to pass up something reliable with a nice screen. If you’re going to be looking at it all day (and sometimes into the night), a quality display is important.
The Dell XPS 15 (9510) is the company’s latest revision of a semi-professional favorite. Perhaps the biggest change here, other than the latest Intel and Nvidia components, is the addition of an OLED screen. It starts at $1,349 with an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 and integrated graphics, while we tested it at $2,400.99 with a Core i7 and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti.
The XPS 15 still retains some professional trappings, including a full-sized SD card reader, but still hasn’t changed much even after being redesigned last year. If OLED is what you want, and you’re after something a bit bigger than most ultraportables, this is one to consider.
