    Well I admit that Dell XPS 15 is the winner on the features, etc but they can't make the specs equal to Macbook Pro that has
    2.4GHz 8‑core 9th‑generation Intel Core i9 processor, Turbo Boost up to 5.0GHz
    Retina display with True Tone
    Touch Bar and Touch ID
    32GB 2400MHz DDR4 memory
    Radeon Pro Vega 20 with 4GB of HBM2 memory
    4TB SSD storage

    Dell XPS 15. An engineering lemon riddled with hardware issues that cannot be fixed. I bought an XPS 15 in March and to this day have not been able to use it for work. Issue one, failed SD Card reader. 20 hours of my time diagnosing with Inept repair teams, they issued and RMA. Shipped it to Dell RMA center. A month later, I get it back. They replaced the memory board a long with all updates and bios. My XPS was sent back with a fail d fingerprint reader and a cooling fan that runs on high constantly. Another twenty hours of my time spent working with overseas technicians who clearly do not speak the US version of English. Now they want to send a technician out to waste more of my time.
    Never again Dell products of any kind. Not For business. Not For business recommendations.
    I am waiting for Tuesday when their business center opens up and I can demand a full refund. To be fair, I should charge Dell $175/hr for my time spent baby sitting on the phone training their techs.
    Dell is the poster child of a mature US company with terrible engineering and fails outsourcing support.

    game benchmarks have no place in a review like this but if you insist on doing gaming benchmarks at least use an offline single player one so the results are repeatable

    One thing to remember about the MacBook is you cannot upgrade the computer, and if it goes down, then it all goes down, at least with the Dell XPS you have upgrade option, and backup option, for me it's the Dell XPS, just a better computer full stop compared to a Mac, and this is coming from an Apple Fan boy of 20 years, maybe it's time for me to switch. Scary!

    If I had the money I would get everything Apple iPhone iPad and MacBook because that’s what most people have and what most people in your study group probably have. Now since I don’t have that much money I’m gonna go with the dell since I study by myself and I watch a lot of TheXvid and Netflix, etc..

  • gabe321

    XPS is better because you could use all the software that's out there for business vs mac where you're limited on what you run.

    I'am really not an Apple Fanboy, I have exactly no Apple device but I think this comparison is very undetailed. Cause these Laptops are not even made for playing Fortnite. These devices are made for heavy ass workloads on the go. And I think if you use them right, they are both beautiful devices.

    The fact is, if you buy an Macbook you should definitely go with FCPX to produce Videos. This combo smokes the most WIN Desktop PC's and is in my Opinion the reason for the heavy price tag.

    If you want a cheaper laptop with better hardware but less optimized programms, go with the Dell and use CC.

    In the end its question of taste, cause moneywise there are not that much differences. I mean 3,5k Mac with 300€ FCPX vs. 2k Dell with 65€ a Month for CC is after 3 years 2340€

    Just pic what you comfortable with :)

    Hope I could clear up these beef a little :D

    I'd go with the Dell, I hate apple for many reasons, everything is proprietary and overpriced, they're just unethical in my book, they make beautiful laptops but I don't like them as a company, I'm a Lenovo fanboy for the most part and I'm a big fan of Linux

    The very fact that hard core Mac users are looking at a Dell Windows machine should tell those idiots at Apple to start LISTENING to their customers. Fuck Apple. Seriously... that track pad and keyboard are unusable.

    I already made my move and got away from that “apple ecosystem”. I mean, considering not only smartphones like galaxy s10 that blows away iphone and also costs less, that Dell XPS is way better and costs £800 less. People need to wake up!

    Question. Is The Dell XPS 15 able to handle the 5120x1440 resolution when hooked up to the LG 49WL95C-W 49 monitor? Tried it with a 2016 MacBook Pro with Rentia and it can only output 3840x1080?

    Don't consider 'gaming' falling under the Power User category. Gamers have gaming laptops and custom dekstops. IMO, a Power User run resource-heavy applications on a consistent basis in either a professional or hobbyist capacity. Or both.

    Why do people even buy a MacBook? Because you are in the apple ecosystem? Save those 800 and get yourself an android phone. Save another 200 of the dongles needed for MacBook and get yourself completely out of that isheep ecosystem! Apple is just playing with you guys! Wake up!
