Which one should I go with?
Dell Inspiron 15 7000
Dell XPS 15
Here’s what I’ll be doing: Schoolwork, Web browsing, Microsoft Office usage, checking emails, gaming
The Dell XPS 15 would be better for school work. The Dell Insprion 15 (Gaming, I assume) is big, heavy, has a shorter battery life, and makes it look like you're gaming even when you're using the calculator app.
I’m specifically looking at the Dell XPS 15 9560 and the Dell Inspiron 15 7559
iirc the Dell XPS 15 9560 has a Killer Wireless AC 1535 WiFi adapter in it which is not too good. I have read horror stories of that WiFi adapter making people’s WiFi networks completely unusable
Completely unrelated, but how good is the Alienware 15? I’m thinking of getting that instead of the XPS 15
AW 15 R2, R3, or R4, and at what price?
The Alienware 15 R3
I'd go with the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 because of the gpu
Nah, would rather go with the XPS 15 because of its long battery life
According to the specs page the Dell XPS 15 9560 even though it’s not a gaming laptop, has a GPU it (a GTX 1050)
It’s also lighter than the Inspiron 15 7000
I honestly agree with tan3xx. You will be sorely disappointed with a 1050 if you actually plan on gaming. If you only play, say, csgo, go for it. But if you want to play any new titles it's not going to work. I doubt pubg would even be playable.
EDIT: I know this is a bit late.
well have fun running games with low fps
It turns out the specs of the inspiron 15 7559 are actually worse. (i7-6700HQ and GTX 960M)
So that probably means even lower FPS
Well what laptop should I go with and if I want to do schoolwork and gaming
Apparently the Alienware 15 R3 has better specs but a smaller battery
Yeah go for the XPS. Gaming laptops follow the trend of not lasting long, not being durable, or having a terrible battery life. However, if you are on a budget than the XPS is not for you.
To be honest, I haven’t decided what games I’ll be playing on the laptop
