  • Dell XPS 15 9530 8-month review

    So I’ve been using a Dell XPS 15 9530 as my daily (and nightly!) driver for the past 8 months.  I have the top-end version (3200×1800 touch, Core i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD) It’s not the perfect laptop, but it’s damn close.  I primarily use it for work, which is to say I use Windows, […]
