Dell’s latest and greatest XPS 15 model comes out the gate swinging. It boasts great specs across the board. The XPS 15 7590 especially has a lot to offer to people with a variety of use cases for their laptops.
To start off with, there’s a stunning display to look at. Considering that it’s what you spend all your time looking at when using any laptop, having a high-quality panel certainly helps. This 15.6-inch screen is a gorgeous 4K OLED, that is also touch compatible.
The fancy display specifications that come with being a 4K OLED aren’t just for show, either. With a 100000:1 contrast ratio and 100% Adobe RGB colour coverage, this is about as good a display as you can get for productivity work in a laptop.
You could do all kinds of professional work on it. The colour accuracy of the panel means that any Photoshop or video-editing related will yield better results.
A pretty display isn’t enough if you’re serious about intense tasks like video-editing, though. You need some powerful components at the heart of it all to make everything tick. Well, the XPS 15 7590 has you covered there, too. With a beefy Intel Core i9-9980HK, this laptop sports what is basically a top-of-the-line processor.
Backing up this ludicrously powerful CPU is a decent GPU as well. NVIDIA’s GTX 1650 won’t blow your socks off with its graphical performance. It’s still more than capable of handling all sorts of workload you could throw at it.
It’s even good enough to get handle some gaming here and there. So, if you’re travelling somewhere and you suddenly get the itch to play some Rocket League, the XPS 15 7590 will handle it no problem.
Multitasking is also sure to be a breeze for this laptop. 64 GB of DDR4 memory clocked at 2666 MHz is more than enough to handle all sorts of intense workloads. With so many high-end components crammed into this laptop, you need a big battery to ensure that they get enough juice. That’s what you get with its 97 WHr battery.
The most incredible part of this whole package? All of these hefty components are present in a decidedly not-hefty 2kg laptop. Considering that it’s only 17mm at its thickest, this is a seriously powerful machine in an easily portable package.
Apple’s latest 16-inch MacBook Pro may have taken the crown as the best workstation laptop, and for good reason. The XPS 15 7590, however, is a worthy competitor on the Windows side.
Not only is it priced better than the MacBook Pro, but it also offers its users a more diverse port selection. With an SD card slot, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, a USB Type-C port with Thunderbolt 3 support and a myriad of display outputs, the XPS 15 7590 is a great product for professionals.
