Hey people!

So I was really thinking about getting the Dell XPS 15 with 4k screen. I really love the looks and stuff and it seems like a really nice computer. But I started to dig deeper into when it came out and when there are more laptops coming out because I obviously don't want to buy a laptop which will be refreshed and be better for the same price next month, or the one after you know?

So I found out that today that Microsoft showed the new Dell XPS 15 with the XPS 13 design on Computex as a machine that's really made for Windows 10.

I was hoping you guys could give me your opinion on getting the XPS 15 right now or wait a few months till the refresh comes out because I am really hoping it will have a better graphics card.

Altough I like the design of the current XPS 15 better than the one of the XPS 13 (2015).

So I am in kind of a dilemma, please help me out guys?:)

Kind regards,
Qwizh

Also: does anybody have any idea about what specs are going to be like in the newer XPS 15?

The newer XPS 15 is likely to have Intel's yet to be release 6th generation Skylake Core i5 / i7 CPUs since their release is expected to coincide with the release of Windows 10.

There are no concrete information yet regarding the performance of Skylake generation CPUs. But since Skylake is a total new architecture people are hoping it will provide a 10%+ processing performance increase over Broadwell (assuming the same clockspeed). The 2nd generation Sandy Bridge Intel CPU was the last time there was a 10%+ performance increase in processing power.

As for the integrated graphics core, I expect Intel will continue the trend of around a 20% in iGPU performance increase that has occurred with every new CPU generation after Sandy Bridge.
