XPS 15 or Surface Book 2

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking to get a laptop by the time school starts but actually buying it now or soon, I'm debating between the Surface Book 2 (i5 8th gen, 8gb of RAM and 256gb ssd) or the Dell XPS 15 (i7 8750H, 16gb RAM, 1050ti and 512gb ssd)

Now clearly spec wise it should be obvious to me but I'm planning on running programs like premiere pro, after effects and photoshop, I need something with an all day battery and I'm really interested in the functionality of a tablet and the surface pen.


Thoughts? Ideas? I need to know what you guys can suggest me that'll last me a full school day and be able to run the programs I've talked about above..

This has been discussed a couple times here over the last few months and the answer is usually something like - Try both and go with the one you like most.

If you need a tablet with a pen, then the surface isn't bad (ipad is better) but you need to try them out to see what works best for you.  People who ask about this either settle for something that will do it all, or end up getting 2 devices.

The XPS is obviously way more machine, but if you don't need it, the then pro would be a better choice.

EDIT - I mean the surface would be a better choice.

Neither are good options IMO


If you want tablet+pen, I'll suggest buying laptop and tablet separately

Feel free to ask for recommendations if you're looking for a new lappy!
