Even with a 1TB pcie SSD, I can’t justify $1k price tag for a sixth generation Intel processor in current year. What’s going on?

It’s an XPS. It can’t be compared to the Inspiron series. The form factor and build quality basically make it a windows MacBook pro

What kind of screen does this have? It says 4K in title but says 1920 under display resolution. Also, what kind of backlight tech is driving the display? Is it LED or WLED?

I’m with you, there. 1080P <> 4K. What’s the truth out there? :slight_smile:

Closest on Amazon…

I second that inquiry. Oh ~Moderator~…can we get a confirmation on the display resolution?

Curious which it is since Dell has the 9550 listed as: with Full HD or the optional UltraSharp™ 4K Ultra HD.

Also 15" lappy having 4k seems like overkill? Or is it just me?

Resolution is 3840 x 2160. Backlight is LED.

Stuff will be updated in just s bit.

How will VR work with this?

Nvidia is setting the minimum requirements for its VR Ready program at a GeForce GTX 970 for desktop PCs and a GTX 980 for notebooks

Something like this would work at the same price point
Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming

Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop this one is better for about $100 more

Thank you!

This isn’t a bad deal at all with the 1Tb drive.

The current gen with the i7, 16Gb, and 512Gb NVMe disk is on sale at the MS store for $1499.

I have the 9560 UHD/32Gb/1Tb model and love it. My only gripe is the glossy screen. I’ve ordered a matte/AG screen filter for it to see if it improves things, but the rest of the laptop is awesome.

All of the 4K/UHD models come with the 97w/Hr battery, so you’ll get decent battery life. (4-5.5 hours general office apps, web browsing, etc.).

I’m not a gamer, so can’t comment about suitability for gaming.

edit: the battery size mentioned above is for the 9560- the 9550 may be different, but two different sizes are mentioned in the post here, so would probably want to confirm which it is.

I have this in the i5/16GB/256GB/UHD configuration.

I’m still very happy with it. I use it to play games when I’m not on my main rig and it keeps up for the most part with games on medium or lower settings and on a lower resolution.

Can you buy extended warranty from Dell with this like on a new one??

I have this exact laptop, and I paid $2100 for it in 2016. It’s by far the best laptop I’ve ever owned, and it feels like a direct competitor to the Macbook Pro. Very powerful, very capable, BEAUTIFUL screen. $1k for this is a steal.

As this is 3rd party refurbished, I’m gonna say no.

We do have a link to a SqTr warranty at the top of the features.

Any knowledge on the keyboard and mousepad? From the pic, it looks like one of the sucky cheapo keyboards that are so popular today…
I guess the mousepad needs no comment… Sucky integrated buttons…
Why are we not getting quality input accessories when we’re paying $1k?
Is it too much to ask for good internals, good visuals, AND good keys?
Sorry… Rant over… Not anyone’s fault here.

I have an XPS 13 from the same year (looks exactly the same keyboard/trackpad wise). No complaints about the keyboard… Feels good to type on and has good key-travel. Springy and responsive. Overall very pleased over the last year of use.

Mouse pad is absolute garbage though. Buy a mouse. This trackpad should only be used in emergencies. Sometimes I use the touchscreen instead. Seriously.

Both of those are only 256 ssd. this is 1tb ssd. Per Cruical the price diff is approx $180 for the larger ssd. so now you are up to $280 difference. This isnt a bad deal
Costco has a closer comparables/options for $1200-$1300, new vs refurb…Id spend the $200
