Looking for the best Windows laptop available on the planet? That’s gotta be the Dell XPS. They’ve remained as the leader and platinum standard in ultrathin powerful devices, and it’s been a couple of years. Companies like ASUS has tried to unseat them with the likes of Zenbook, or HP with their Envy line of notebooks but neither comes close.
This 2020, Dell is expanding their leadership with the latest XPS 15 and 17 and have again raised the bar – releasing ultrathin 15″ and 17″ with gorgeous designs yet packed with powerful internals.
The bad news is, Dell laptops in the Philippines cost an arm and a leg. Brands like Acer, Lenovo and Asus have more or less tried to come close to US SRPs (where prices are heavily subsidized and/or are cheaper due to less tax and less distribution costs) but dell, for some reason, is around 50% more in price when landed and we don’t know why.
But still, if you were looking for the best – then you were already prepared to shell out an insane amount of cash. And at the very least, you’re still paying 30% less than what you’d pay for an Apple Macbook with similar specification.
