Dell’s XPS series provides excellent Windows experiences to consumers unless you are a hardcore gamer. Apple’s MacBook Pro series is compared to XPS, which says everything about the lineup. Nepal is now home to the Dell XPS 2020 iteration. Today’s review will cover the specs, features, price, and availability of the new Dell XPS 15 9500 in Nepal.
Dell XPS 15 9500 Overview:
For many years, Dell has been offering the best consumer laptop with their XPS 15. The XPS 17 is back after almost a decade after Dell decided to revive it. Despite its dull look, the new XPS 15 9500 isn’t boring. Compared to the previous generations of Dell’s XPS 15, this is the first time we’re seeing a brand new computer from scratch.
Design and Display
On the palm rest, carbon fiber is laid over an aluminum chassis, creating a chassis carved from one piece of aluminum. Compared to its predecessor, it is smaller. The bezels on the screen have been removed, especially the bottom chin, resulting in a slimmer screen. So the 16:10 display is even taller and wider because it extends from edge to edge. Corning Gorilla Glass 6 provides an additional layer of protection. As an additional feature, EyeFeature reduces harmful blue light emission while painting vibrant colors on the panel.
On this machine, the display-to-body ratio is 92.9%. There are two types of panels available: a Full HD (1920 x 1200 pixels) and a 4K UHD (3840 x 2400 pixels). A webcam and an infrared camera are housed in the slim top bezel. By frequently plugging and unplugging USB devices, the diamond-cut outer walls of the device are said to protect it from wear and tear.

Keyboard and Trackpad
A new keyboard has also been introduced by Dell. There is a balance between weight and strength provided by the palm-rest made of carbon fiber. There is now 1.3mm of key travel on Dell’s new individual keys. Taking advantage of the larger surface area of the trackpad, the fingerprint sensor is now on the keyboard. The keyboard has two upfiring speakers from the quad-speaker setup.
Performance and Memory
The new XPS 15 9500 features Intel’s 10th-generation 45W laptop processor. The company claims to also offer a model with Core i9 – 10885H processor in the future. Currently, it is available with Core i7 – 10750H (8 cores and 16 threads). This system also includes the NVIDIA graphics card, 32 GB DDR4 RAM, and 1 TB SSD. Eventually, Dell will offer SSD storage up to 2TB and 64GB of RAM. Created content is the primary use of the laptop. If you like, you can also play games with such high-end specs.
Dell’s XPS 17 9700 doesn’t feature Vapor Cooling. Perhaps the XPS 15’s size constraints are causing the issue. In spite of this, the company says its cooling system is as good as it can be for a laptop of this size.
Battery, Ports, and Security
According to Dell, the FHD model’s six-cell, 86Wh battery offers up to 25 hours of battery life. A much smaller 56Wh battery is included in the base variant. As for battery performance in each model, we’ll have to wait and see. There are no USB A ports or HDMI ports on this Dell laptop.
A card reader and two USB – C Thunderbolt ports also come standard with the XPS 15 9500. Dell fitted the keyboard with a fingerprint sensor for added security. IR cameras support Windows Hello login as well.
