Dell XPS 15 7000 series laptop

Quick Description

This laptop excels at performing away from the desk thanks to its massive battery, compact design and high-end hardware.

Sadly, being close-packed prevents this laptop from maintaining top performance for extended periods before overheating and slowing down as a damage-prevention measure.

Still, that battery endurance is an appealing feature. If you sometimes need extra horsepower away from the desk, but not usually for long periods, this laptop could be just what you need. It also won't look out-of-place in most meeting rooms, while a Gaming PC probably would most likely stand out while being bulkier.

Other Considerations

Here are a few things about this laptop which could come as a surprise. For each point, you will find how to fix it (if it's an issue) and how much to budget for it. Not every point below will be a concern, but hopefully, we can keep your surprises to a minimum.

No Optical Drive. If you still use CDs, DVDs, or Blu-Ray disks on a regular basis, you will need an external drive to read them with this laptop.$30+

No Number Pad. If you primarily work with numbers, the lack of a number pad on this laptop could be inconvenient. You have the option of using an external number pad to remedy that, especially if you only need it on occasion.$20+

Assuming you are starting over fresh, you can expect to spend $20 on accessories.
