Battery

This laptop has an average battery life of about 9 hours, having slightly less battery life compared to the Asus Chromebook Flip C434, which has a battery life of 10 hours. Since it contains a solid state drive instead of a traditional hard drive, saving power is easier. Other ways to save power include dimming the oled screen, and not pushing the CPU and RAM to their limits by opening too many programs, especially programs that require more processing.

Ports/expandability

This assortment consists of USB C, audio/ microphone combo jack, SD card reader, HDMI, and USB type A ports. While it’s a simple assortment of ports, those ports provide fast charging for various devices as well as a fast file transferring speed. It also provides fast wi fi and Bluetooth, which somewhat adds even more types of devices that the computer can be connected to, and is especially useful if there’s ever a chance the ports can’t function.

Build quality

Since it has a solid state drive, it has a slimmer appearance that’s almost as thin as an Apple Macbook Pro, and has a chassis made of aluminum to provide decent durability and protection. It weighs 5.5 Lbs., weighing significantly more than the Macbook Pro, which weighs 3.1 Lbs. One of the contributions to the overall weight is the size of the laptop screen, as there’s about a 2 inch difference between the Dell and that particular Macbook Pro model.

Value

While the laptop’s expensive, it’s expensive for more than just a couple of reasons: Aside from having a processor that gives the computer the capability of processing modern day games, there’s also the 1 TB solid state drive, 16 Gbs of RAM, and an IPS screen that displays a wide range of colors and provides sharp visuals. Most, if not all, of the components are high quality and provide an overall high performing experience.

Dell XPS 15 7590 Wrap Up
