    I just ordered an xps 15 but core i5, gtx 1050. I still want to use it for photoshop and light animation work. I wonder if it would still be good enough. In Germany prices are much higher than the US for the same specs!! crazzee

    If you are an audio creator, DO NOT BUY the XPS 15. A lot of it's models
    have a terrible DPC latency (look it up), which results in random
    crackling and popping in the audio, making it unusable if
    creating/recoding music, podcasts, watching YT videos, etc. I had this
    issue on my first model (XPS 15 9570), and sent it back when I noticed
    the issue, my replacement model has the same issue and Dell says THEY
    KNOW ABOUT THE ISSUE, BUT CANNOT FIND A FIX ANYTIME SOON. I hope this
    will help <3

    Ok some guys are complaining about that MacBooks doesn’t have powerful gpus as compare to windows laptops. Its true but keep in mind these windows laptops with powerful gpus will never give you the full performance while running on battery power. You must plugged in, in order to get the full performance. May be its the same case with dell xps 15. And trust me it is a big deal. The reason is gpus draws a large amount of current which battery cant deliver.Macbooks always gives full performance even on battery power. One must do some research before buying windows laptop.

    In 5 years the DELL XPS will be less usable because of driver issues. Macbook Pro will run smooth for 10 years without even having to think (just update in the Apple Store and you are done). To say it all, the DELL comes new with driver problems linked to the Wireless card (killer) that you have to solve with software and driver update. This is the difference. I'll invest my money on a Macbook Pro because it will last longer without problems.

    I'am really not an Apple Fanboy, I have exactly no Apple device but I think this comparison is very undetailed. Cause these Laptops are not even made for playing Fortnite. These devices are made for heavy ass workloads on the go. And I think if you use them right, they are both beautiful devices.

    The fact is, if you buy an Macbook you should definitely go with FCPX to produce Videos. This combo smokes the most WIN Desktop PC's and is in my Opinion the reason for the heavy price tag.

    If you want a cheaper laptop with better hardware but less optimized programms, go with the Dell and use CC.

    In the end its question of taste, cause moneywise there are not that much differences. I mean 3,5k Mac with 300€ FCPX vs. 2k Dell with 65€ a Month for CC is after 3 years 2340€

    Just pic what you comfortable with 🙂

    Hope I could clear up these beef a little 😀

    One thing to remember about the MacBook is you cannot upgrade the computer, and if it goes down, then it all goes down, at least with the Dell XPS you have upgrade option, and backup option, for me it's the Dell XPS, just a better computer full stop compared to a Mac, and this is coming from an Apple Fan boy of 20 years, maybe it's time for me to switch. Scary!

    Dell XPS 15. An engineering lemon riddled with hardware issues that cannot be fixed. I bought an XPS 15 in March and to this day have not been able to use it for work. Issue one, failed SD Card reader. 20 hours of my time diagnosing with Inept repair teams, they issued and RMA. Shipped it to Dell RMA center. A month later, I get it back. They replaced the memory board a long with all updates and bios. My XPS was sent back with a fail d fingerprint reader and a cooling fan that runs on high constantly. Another twenty hours of my time spent working with overseas technicians who clearly do not speak the US version of English. Now they want to send a technician out to waste more of my time.

    Never again Dell products of any kind. Not For business. Not For business recommendations.

    I am waiting for Tuesday when their business center opens up and I can demand a full refund. To be fair, I should charge Dell $175/hr for my time spent baby sitting on the phone training their techs.

    Dell is the poster child of a mature US company with terrible engineering and fails outsourcing support.
