By my signature below, I acknowledge that I have read and agreed to all of the following statements for checking out a laptop computer from Northwestern Regional Library. The unit we reviewed was a regular XPS 15 laptop, not the 2-in-1 version. Otherwise it had most of the top specs for the model, including the excellent 4K Infinity Edge touchscreen display.

The XPS 15 can do it all. The unit I reviewed was an ode to the kind of excess that seems wasteful to some and necessary to others. But it sure is nice to fire up The Witcher 3 in between meetings.

I'm not sure when that will change, because I doubt I'll ever haul around a inch display.

I tested Netflix, Skype, the Chrome browser--all faster. I know some readers have told me they could never use an iPad because they do web programming, video editing, or play high-end computer games, and I understand those reservations.

With each passing year a tablet becomes more like a laptop anyway, especially in terms of raw processing power. Still not convinced?
I understand. It took me about three years of using an iPad during meetings to realize it makes me more productive. I also never use a laptop at home anymore.
