I did the mistake of buying this. (Sept 2018)

3 months after fan starts making weird noises when I played a first real game in this, shadow of tomb raider. (Dec 2018)

Now I sent it for RMA.

They replaced mainboard with a refurb.

BOOM! after getting it back, speakers don't work, and black screen on boot for 15 sec. (Jan 2018)

Okay, so one-off case can happen maybe?

I sent it again. Again the mainboard got replaced.

BOOM! now the graphics card is not working. The main component of this "GAMING LAPTOP" is not working.(Feb 2018)

Now I talk to the customer service and go through the usual reinstalling of drivers.

And I ask them to replace my laptop. NO WAY is what the guy said.

Okay. Atleast replace the mainboard with a new one ? NO again.

And he tells me that they replaced the mainboard last time but this time it is a separate issue in the graphic card.

And I ask him is the graphic card not soldered on the mainboard. He responds "i cannot do anything other than takin

Hi, it’s my first time to watch a video of yours and you already got my trust. I wanna know how many years do you think an XPS15 would last long or still be able to perform good for a content creator/illustrator/animator etc? Thanks and more power!

where did you get those light bulbs?





Benjamin Sandoval 

Sometimes I feel reviewers just do this to show how much free stuff they get πŸ€”

Sandu Ioan Iulian 

Good video, very nice explained but that frustrated me because I can't afford what I want. :)

So much expensive for the european market !

Laptop God!!!

Sinan Akkoyun 

Duuude that cuts

Caleb Verbrugge 

No hp spectre x360? Yikes


No one gonna talk about those awesome cuts?

YS Entertainment 

Thank God for not mentioning any hp laptop, they're hands down the worst laptop out there.

YS Entertainment 

I've been thinking of buying the xps 15 since December but the reviews on amazon are disappointing.

Houston Observer 

What about trackpad and comfort of use between these? If you're using their built in trackpad (mouse) some are horrible devices.

MSI GS65 vs Dell XPS 15

Which one is the best for Revit and other 3D and render software?

Hocus Smokus 

No Windows machine can compete with the Apple laptops. You're way too focused on specs rather than usability.

AZ Bear 

would like to see an update and for laptops <$1100.00 or $1200.00

Dell XPS15 needs to be taken off the market until " thermal" problem resolved & by "thermal", I'm referring to their battery expanding, pushing the touchpad up so it's unusable (or battery exploding)

I'd really like to know how the new updated Macbook Pros are now in comparison to the laptops he presented.

Hi dave , i am looking for a laptop for my industrial design work like 3d modelling , rendering , and videos on primiere pro and other adobe editing softwares . Am trying to be extra careful with the money is spend and i am torn between few options.

I want my laptop not to overheat , run for longer period of time without crashing , be faster in performance. (looking at 16 gb i7 8th gens and amazing graphic and cpu)

I shortlisted:

Dell XPS 15 9570 OR 9575 - i7 16 gb 8 th gen , nvidia gtx 1050ti 4 gb

Microsoft surface book 2

Acer predator helios 300 - nvidia gtx 1060 6gb

Asus rog strix scar 2

Dell precision 15 7730

p.s I am a total non gamer . I dont care about the portability much.Any suggestion would be of great help.I watched all of your videos and am still confused cause i dont game and i have doubts.

I'm currently in the market for a new laptop, and I'm down to the XPS 13 9370 and the LG Gram 13Z980-U.AAW5U1. You've done a video on both of these or a slightly different model, so if you have a recommendation, it would be greatly appreciated. I don't need too much power so just the i5 will be perfectly fine, I'm mainly looking at the other aspects of the laptops such as weight, build quality, etc. Since you've used both these devices, I'd thought you might have a good recommendation. Thanks!
