The CPU is a 2.3GHz i5-2410M heading above the CPU, 2.3 GHz Core i7-2820QM, costs $ 500 extra. RAM can be upgraded to 8 GB of the base of 4 GB for $ 120. A choice of 256 GB SSD is available for $ 600. GPU options are limited: either the Nvidia GeForce GT 525 million, or GT 540M, with double the memory, for an extra $ 100. TV tuner will cost $ 50.

Our configuration came with a quad-core 2.0 GHz Intel Core i7 CPU 2630QM, costing $ 175 over the CPU core. This is one of the new Intel processors Sandy Bridge in 2011. In our benchmarks, the performance was excellent and much better than last year's dual-core i5 - not surprising since it was a generation processor and an option to the lower end of the processor. But even against other laptops in 2011 with Sandy Bridge Intel next-gen, he more than held its own to make a significant jump in speed compared to last year's Intel CPU. We drove several windows CPU-intensive tasks and experienced almost no slowdown, even slots blowing hot air from time to time.
Graphically, the XPS is a step up from an already solid performing 2010 version that we reviewed. Nvidia GeForce GPU 525 million Optimus automatic switching has 2 GB of video memory; Unreal Tournament III ran at 53.1 frames per second at full 1920 x 1, resolution of 0.080 pixels, and 81.5fps at 1,440 x 900 pixels with the parameters average. Our benchmark for Street Fighter IV in full screen and full-HD resolution played perfectly on a 59.8fps butter. As you might expect from a more expensive laptop, it is more than capable of playing games on his pioneering HD screen.

The nine-cell battery that comes with our XPS 15 (an additional option for $ 40) makes a difference, a time of 4 hours and 2 minutes with our video playback test battery drain. It is a solid number for a laptop as powerful, but it's still a couple of hours of escape from the 15-inch MacBook Pro. On the other hand, is a great improvement in 2 hours and 26 minutes we reached the XPS past 15 years with a standard six-cell battery. Without having tested the XPS with a standard six-cell, it is difficult to say how much of the benefit comes from the larger battery and what is the result of a more efficient Intel processor.

Dell includes a one-year warranty with the house XPS 1915, expandable up to four years more, $ 290 Dell website, or four years accidental damage protection for $ 410. Dell's Web site offers a 24-7 toll-free telephone and Internet support, including software drivers and guides that are easy to find.
