Dell XPS 15 2014 Edition (9530) Review

Lisa Gade reviews the Dell XPS 15, 2014 revision with 4th generation Intel Haswell CPUs and optional NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M graphics. The XPS 15 is one of the few ultraportable powerhouse laptops with full mobile CPUs rather than slower Ultrabooks CPUs, and it weighs 4.4 lbs. This is a 15.6″ Windows 8.1 machine with your choice of full HD or QHD+ 3200 x 1800 gloss touch screen displays and it’s available with quad core i7 CPUs, making it ideal for serious computing needs like video editing, 3D work and compiling large programs. The laptop has the usual XPS look with a metal lid, carbon fiber bottom and soft touch black interior with backlit keyboard. The price starts at $1,599, but the more desirable model with quad core CPU and QHD+ display is $1,999. Our model with a 512 gig SSD and bigger battery sells for $2,349.

  1. Hey Lisa i still use this in 2018, i bought it in 2015. I'd love to see a video on how the 2014 Xps stacks up against the 2018 one and which upgrades could be made to boost the 2015 XPS' performance

  2. Lisa is good but she makes mistakes is her descriptions and seem to forget what she says I minute she loves Dell keyboards and then she goes on to criticize them even with Eps 15 models, saying she has trouble with the Dell keyboards.  why just not say some of the models???

  3. I sold my 3200*1800 dell to buy a 15in macbook pro because of the scaling issue. I couldn't stand the small menus. Solidworks, Photoshops… even menus in pdf files are too small to read. I'm hoping that windows 10 doesn't have this issues.

  4. Really looking forward to a XPS 15 9550 review from you. I'm worried about the battery life in the even thinner smaller model.

  5. I asking about this laptop if I want used it to run virtual machines like vmware. I mean more than 4 or 6 machines at same time.

  6. Продам абсолютно новый ноутбук Dell XPS 15 9530. 
    Гарантия 2 года. Гарантия начинает действовать после активации.

  7. For the price, and considering this thing is still in the Dell lineup I still think it should have a 960M or something. Pushing that many pixels with a crusty old 750M? SMH :{

  8. Hey Dell owners, I made a Dell XPS 15 (9530) Fan / Forum group. Please join if you have a Dell XPS 15

  9. Don't buy if in Europe. (Made in poland).
    Mine had service man out 4 times. 
    The last call was made the day before the warranty ran out.!
    They can not get the heat right so the graphics card basically melts something inside. 

    They are great form factor but they went cheap on the 'how to get it all in there'  bit.
    I've had 2 mother boards and 2 graphics cards. Finally ended up with no bluetooth, no ssd boot drive and only one working usb slot.
    Warenty had run out and I was just fed up. Reviewer didn't have them long enough to see the problems 4 weeks later.

  10. What can play PvZGW?
    If this cant… don't think id loke to just play from home. We go on the road from city to city doing presentations for our business but i have been told to relax a nit and have time to "relax". I got PvZGW as a birthday present but don't play it very often because we are on the move. So i am looking for laptop that is good for video editing, business and can play games like PvZGW. Can anyone help us..?😞
    Thank you if you can, we really appreciate it.☕

  11. I ordered this laptop on December 25th from Australia. Got it after going through TOLL delivery guys. I had to pick it up myself. In less than a month the laptop randomly refuses to boot. Power button lights up within 10 seconds showing nothing on screen/responding to BIOS/Diagnose key presses it shuts itself down. Called DELL technical. They told someone will get back within 1 or 2 working days. Still waiting.

    Funny part is I got spammed by calls from Malaysia saying they are from DELL. How come they could fix my notebook from Malaysia? Call was disconnected.

    I will never buy a DELL ever again.

  12. Thank you for an awesome review, I've got myself this laptop in top spec and I am super happy. Thank you one more time
