I bought a new XPS 15 9560 a couple of weeks ago. I can confirm that it is a beautiful laptop, with all-day battery life (if you don't play games lol), great performance for battery life, a damn comfortable keyboard, a beautiful display (with touch too), and a fingerprint sensor (at least on my model).


Thunderbolt 3 is beautiful on it as well. I don't have a current use for it yet, but I'm looking forward to using it.
