+18 More reasons for
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
Like most of the other many processor core portable PCs that have been around for a similar time to the XPS 15, the DELL XPS 15 has a full-size keyboard.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The DELL XPS 15 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most portable PCs of this type and age. In addition, this portable PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.
This portable PC's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all many processor core portable PCs that have been around for more than two years.
A 133MHz processor memory clock speed is the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across comparable types of portable PC.
SSD Storage Medium
The DELL XPS 15 has an SSD storage medium which is better than most portable PCs of this spec and age. Most many processor core portable PCs that were released around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium across all similar spec laptops that came out around the same time as the XPS 15.
The worst storage medium amongst comparable types of notebook PC is HDD.
