      Want to get the XPS15 UHD 16GB 512GB large battery version but they only have the lower and higher versions

    •  

      except that the item is coming from Malaysia?

    •  

      How to get a custom built model? I asked dell on eBay to list the UHD 16GB 512GB model but they refused.

      This is the answer.

      New message from: dell_australia Top Rated Seller(6,069Green Star)
      Thanks for your email query. Unfortunately we are not selling that laptop on eBay, only on the Dell website

      We do have the 32GB XPS 15 on eBay in UHD

      Regards

    Really great computer with one fatal flaw: terrible touchpad. Coming from a Mac, I had to return mine after a week because I couldn't stand it.

      Was this the 2015 version + did you test after updating the firmware , coz the experience improved a lot after the update as per many reviewers

      • +2 votes

        Yes and yes. Also tried the drivers from the touchpad manufacturer. It doesn't compare to a MacBook.

        •  

          Yeah I agree, Macs have best trackpad

          But I personally can't stand the OS . . It's too simplified .. each to their own I guess :)

      To be fair, all PCs have a shithouse touchpad if you compare it to a Mac.

    • +6 votes

      That being said, nothing, in my humble opinion, compares to a mouse. You get a lot more comfort and functionality, particularly for longer periods of use.

      •  

        yep, couldn't care less about the touchpad. I'm rarely using the laptop with the touchpad for anything intensive so if I"m doing up word documents or excel or something, you're hardly using it.

        If you're gaming or photo editing and the like then you'd want to use a mouse anyway as touchpads are slow and inaccurate at the best of times.

      •  

        Have you used a Mac? I would say the touchpad comes very very close to a mouse in terms of ease of use and functionality (even probably exceeds a mouse for functionality).

        •  

          What a load of nonsense. Anyone who has used a proper gaming mouse knows that a trackpad (even a macbook one) is worlds apart.

    •  

      I have this laptop, it is great but one of the problems i have is that sometimes when i type.. it double spaces. like this

    • +1 vote

      I've got the late 2015/2016 dell XPS 13 and I love the touchpad. It is one of the better track pads I've used on Windows, usefully large and a nice texture to touch. No issues whatsoever with tracking.

  • +2 votes

    Jumped on this when I saw it.

    Was initially leaning towards 13" MBP retina, but my experiences with OSX updates significantly slowing older machines turned me away.

    Hopefully the XPS has similar build quality and I can get 5+ years out of this as well!

        The battery life of this is much better but the screen is 1080p compared to the 2k screen on the base Razer

        I'd take the battery life tbh, but it's based on personal preferences

        •  

          2k vs 1080 is like less than 10% difference in total pixel count. It won't make a noticeable difference to battery life.

        • +1 vote

          @algy:

          He's saying he wants the bigger screen on the Razer but battery life on the XPS is better (due to a bigger battery, or optimisation or whatever reason, not due to resolution) and therefore he's getting the Dell.

          1920x1080 = 2073600 px
          2560x1440 = 3686400 px

          3686400/2073600 = 1.777778
          = 77.8% more pixels than 1080p
          = maths fail

          @lostn: perhaps he's talking about 2048×1080, which is officially defined as 2K

          @Michael15286:

          perhaps he's talking about 2048×1080, which is officially defined as 2K

          Officially or not, most people associate 2K with 1440p.

          The battery life of this is much better but the screen is 1080p compared to the 2k screen on the base Razer

          If he paid attention to the guy he was replying to, the base Razer Blade Stealth runs at 2560x1440, not 2048x1080. Such a modest increase in pixels would not even be a factor worth considering.

        •  

          @lostn: Guy he was replying to was the one who incorrectly said it was a 2K screen. Regardless it should have been obvious he was talking about a QHD screen as almost nobody makes a 2K laptop screen. Glad you understood correctly though :)

        •  

          @lostn: 1440p isn't 2k….

        Hi TightBottom,

        I hadn't actually considered a Razer laptop.

        Had a look then and they appear to be higher spec' for the price. I don't think the high res display and smaller capacity battery would suit me personally.

        I did look at a few alternatives but seeing as I have a pretty capable desktop at home my priorities were: build quality, compact size, decent screen (didn't
        care about super hi-res on a 13" and the trade off with battery life wasn't for me) good battery life and a bearable keyboard.

      I've never used a Mac that's 5 years old which has slowed down due to an OSX update

      •  

        2011 white unibody MacBook. Running latest OSX (el capitan). Fresh install and it is very very slow to respond to anything. Could be the 2gb of ram it came with and the ageing mechanical hard drive but it seemed to happen around the time I updated to a newer build of OSX. Perhaps just a coincidence?

        Not the best straight comparison given it was the cheapest apple laptop at time of purchase but I have had budget Windows machines for longer with OS updates that didn't slow the machine as much.

        • +2 votes

          @wangsk: I did think about doing that and throwing in 8gb of ram. If it wasn't for the battery life being quite poor now I would!

        • +2 votes

          @JF: I upgraded that same model to El Capitan from Lion and it ran like crap. I threw 4gb of ram from the base 2gb and it runs good now. Just upgrade the ram to 8gb and you'll be set. SSD is also awesome in them but not essential if you're trying to save money.

          It's 6 years old. Just let it go and get a new one

          I had an old MacBook that I'd upgraded to an ssd. I'd forgotten I'd done that - but yes the fresh install on that computer worked well

          @wangsk: I'm going to try this out. I've had my mbp for 7 years now and it's starting to slow down in the last 3 months. I had replaced the battery and added in 8gb last year which was good. Any particular SSD you recommend? I would like to get another year out of it at least if possible.

          Two words: Planned obsolescence.

        •  

          @sagiballs: this is exactly whats wrong.

          Just because something is old doesn't mean it should be discarded. If it can be repurposed or handed down. Why not right?

          Why should manufacturers dictate how long we use a product for?

          Me personally. I run my stuff to the ground and only replace it when it absolutely no longer works.

          As for thing no longer serving a purpose but still works. They get handed down.

          @xoom:

          It's a 6 year old machine. if you expect that to run well and play nice with updates you are high as f

          And nobody is forcing you to replace it. If you want to continue with a crap experience that's your business

        •  

          @sagiballs:

          I dont expect a 6 year old machine to run like the first day i got. I just like things to still be useable after numerous updates. I am with lostn on this. This is planned obsolesence.

          Then you contradicted yourself by saying "let it go get a new." Then saying "nobody is forcing you to replace it." The manufacturer is clearly forcing consumers to upgrade to a newer machine.

          Theres a big difference between things that are just slow to things that just stop working or wont install at all because you got old hardware.

      I just had the ux305 and sold it to get the xps 13 because I found a really good deal on the xps.

      Zenbook pros:
      - thinner + lighter
      - looks a little better
      - silent (no fan)

      Xps 13 pros:
      - Better speakers
      - more powerful
      - Back lit Keyboard
      - Way better keyboard and trackpad
      - feels tougher
      - longer battery

      If youre just a student for uni go for Zenbook, If youre using it for alot go XPS. Everything on the Zenbook is good, but you simply couldnt go back to it from the xps

    Anyone have experience with importing these? The sale says they're in Malaysia. I presume that since it's being purchased from Dell Australia GST and import charges would be already covered? Unlike Kogan as an example where you're really buying from an overseas supplier.

    • -1 vote

      They come from Dell Au, but Dell has an import agreement inplace. Depending on the laptop spec (ie anything with custom specs) is made at the factory then shipped over, they cover any and all import costs already. If its a cookie cutter spec laptop/device chances are they will have it in stock in Australia and will be shipped out from there

    •  

      If youre going to import, I would say the best way is to get a forwarding address and get amazon or the Microsoft store to send it there.

      If you import under $1000 AUD you dont get taxed the GST. I paid $1050 for mine and I havent been charged yet, and its 3 months after I got it

      I would recommend "Post mate" It is run buy Australia post and doesnt cost that much. (about $40-$60 for a laptop)

      •  

        No I'm not importing it like that. Simply buying it and having it delivered from overseas. Dell probably do it "properly" as compared with Kogan whose business model is based around avoiding GST.

      •  

        How do you get it from the forwarding address to you without paying the duties and import taxes?

        I think you mean Shop Mate.

    Great laptop. I bought one from the dell outlet (last year's model with mini-DP as opposed to USB-C).
    Beautiful touch screen.
    Came with windows 8, upgraded to Win10 and then did a Win10 install reset and all the bloatware was deleted :)

    Thank op for the post.

    Can I ask if this is worth an extra $400 compared to the Zen book listed here http://m.ebay.com.au/itm/331589670951?_mwBanner=1

    The Zen book has touch screen but a slower CPU (2.2ghz V 2.8gh)

    I don't really game much, so this will be used mainly for watch videos and surfing the net.

      thanks Shonky and fmoh for the responses. Appreciate it.

      In a complete turn turnaround, I ended up buying the MacBook 12" from the OW deal.

    •  

      I'm a bit confused. On that Zenbook page, the image says it has a QHD+ display (3200x1800) but the specs sheet on the bottom says 1080p.

      If it's the QHD+, get the Zen book. That should be a no brainer. The XPS 13 equivalent with that resolution costs $2500 before discount.

      If it's the 1080p display, I'd get the XPS 13. It has a better build quality and more premium look and feel than the Asus.

    •  

      Zenbook UX305UA ($1080 - group deal) has almost identical specs. The XPS is the better ultrabook overall, but $500 better? Hmmm …..

      http://groupbuy.ebay.com.au/deal?itemId=331858697267

      BTW, Zenbook is 1920x1080. The description is just a generic copy-pasta from the website

  •  

    Can it play on BF4?

  •  

    How is the screen's colour reproduction for photo editing?

  •  

    This laptop is definitely better than macbook air and macbook 12 inch as there r heaps of comparison videos and Dell XPS comes out to be better overall and in value.

  •  

    Any recommendations for a USB-Type C (Thunderbolt 3.1) to HDMI?

    I'm trying to decide between this and a Blade Stealth. Anyone know how much the import charges would be on a base model Stealth ($1549)?
