After many years of not having a laptop for photography travel and being schooled many times by trip leaders for not having one, I finally broke down and purchased a new laptop. I waited for the MacBook Pro 15 inch version but was not liking it.
After being with John Shaw for a couple of weeks last summer and lusting over his Dell XPS 15 inch and a co-traveler at Yellowstone last month same laptop, I decided what am I waiting for!
After a large sum of money I found what I wanted. Here are the specs:
Dell XPS 15 New version for 2017
- 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ Quad Core Processor (6M cache, up to 3.8 GHz)
- Windows 10 Pro 64-bit English
- 32GB DDR4-2400MHz
- 1TB PCIe Solid State Drive
- NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 with 4GB GDDR5
- 15.6" 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) InfinityEdge touch display
- Killer 1535 802.11ac 2x2 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1
- Battery 97WHr
I feel good with the purchase and I hope it is all worth it and it last many years. It will remind me when I pay off the credit card bill next month.
