With Intel releasing their 9th generation 45W chips, such as the hex-core 9750H being released, and Nvidia releasing the RTX Cards, alongside the 1650M / 1660M GTX to replace the 1050M and it's variants by April, it seems as though it's prime season to see some huge refreshed for these laptops. What are your expectations? What are your wishes? What's the news? I'm really hoping for, out of all the notebooks, a more in-depth refresh of the XPS 15 and Aero 15x respectively, but for different reasons. I think the Aero 15x can benefit the most from an external refresh while the XPS 15 can benefit the most from an internal refresh. I think the Aero 15x is the strongest laptop on the market in terms of performance-per-dollar and thermal management. But it's not controversial to say that it is 5-6 years behind it's competitors in design. While it is certainly competitive in terms of footprint and weight, it's industrial design reminds me of the old dells from yesteryear, and the ugly AERO & Gigabyte logos need to be reconsidered. It's panelized construction feels cheap, and the keyboard and trackpad leave a lot to be desired. The Dell XPS, aside from the MacBook Pro, in my opinion is, is the gold-standard in terms of build-quality and overall design. That's really saying something as the design hasn't changed since 2015, and competitors this latest generation have just begun to catch up. Where it falls behind it's competitors, however, is performance-per-dollar and thermal management. I really wouldn't mind the lack of performance-per-dollar if Dell was that much ahead of other notebooks in terms of battery life, dependability, or features, but they aren't. If they kept the same industrial design, while improving the thermal management, and surprise us with a huge new feature such as an RTX option or 500-nit 4K OLED Display that doesn't cost $500, they would lead the class again.
