In this article, I give you my DELL XPS 15 9510 (2021) review with specs included. Same physical design as previous year’s model (2020) but what’s new inside is Intel 11th gen CPUs which so far have actually been pretty good and Nvidia RTX 3050 and 3050Ti dedicated graphics.
So, we’re starting to talk about some serious performance here and I often feel like the XPS 15’s every redesign takes a couple of revisions before they really get to where Dell envisioned they would always be in terms of performance and thermals and stability and all that stuff.
Even better here, we have a 3.5 K OLED touchscreen display. So the XPS 13 got OLED now so does the XPS 15.
As ever, the beauty of the XPS line is the fact that you can get it starting at an affordable price tag. Granted, for enthusiasts is not the configuration that you’re probably going to want.
DELL XPS 15 9510 (2021) Specs
DELL XPS 15 9510 (2021) starts around $1200 to $1299 MSRP, a little bit lower in the United States, and that gets you a full HD plus display with a 16 by 10 aspect ratio (standard with XPS line) and a Core i5 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB SSD and only integrated graphics.
If you move up the line and spend around $1700-$1800 you’re getting into a Core i7, and more RAM, a bigger SSD, that sort of thing.
My OLED model is sort of a pre-configured higher interior so you can’t go with the Core i5 and get the OLED. It’s an Intel Core i7 11th-gen, 16 GB of RAM, and a 512 GB SSD, and that 3.5K OLED display for $2299. So, $2300 or less if you find it on sale and some retailers sell for less than Dell’s list price.
Given the fact that this is a premium unibody CNC aluminum machine with good specs and all that sort of thing that price isn’t bad for a nice OLED display on top of that and it’s a touch screen.
