  • Description

    Thoughtful design.
    It’s a design that goes beyond beauty. Machined aluminum, bonded Corning® Gorilla® Glass and a silicone base are designed to bring you an experience that’s premium in every way. At less than 1" (23.2 mm) thin, XPS 15 is built to move.

    • Machined-aluminium: Your XPS 15 is precision-cut from a single block of aluminium, for a design that’s as tough as it is striking.
    • Corning® Gorilla® Glass display: The premium display, engineered for high brightness, features edge-to-edge bonded Corning® Gorilla® Glass, making it extremely durable.
    • Silicone base: A silicone base doesn’t just look great; it makes your XPS 15 feel cooler to the touch as well.
    • Magnesium palmrest: Enjoy the smooth feel of XPS 15’s magnesium palmrest, coated with velvety soft-touch paint.

    More to see.
    Enjoy crisp, bold video playback on a 15.6" Full HD (1080p) display with 350-nit brightness.

    • XPS 15’s sharp graphics and vivid colors are perfect in any lighting situation. The 350-nit display is up to 75% brighter than standard laptop display (typically 200-nit), so you can enjoy a Full high-def entertainment experience even when you’re catching some sun.
    • Let XPS 15 be your new creative workspace. Browse multiple web pages and even run applications side by side. A Full HD display contains almost twice as many pixels as a standard definition (720p) display, so you get finer details, lines and edges in a generous viewing area.
