Dell has been a stalwart of the home computer space for years, with over three decades of experience in manufacturing and selling PCs and laptops. If you’ve been eyeing up its models with a view to picking up a new laptop, you’ll note that its range is exhaustive – there’s Inspiron, XPS, and the G Series, not to mention Chromebooks and its gaming-devoted Alienware models.
Dell has received a lot of praise for its line up, not least for its XPS range, which many point to as the company’s answer to the Apple MacBook. It’s not hard to see why – the XPS merges style and power, producing a fast, desirable laptop.
