That because xps 15 is 3.9 lbs which is lighter than the MSI. Maybe you should go back to 2nd grade to learn how to compare two numbers. Lol.

XPS 15 with core i3 7100H starts from 4lbs. May be you should learn how to read english so that you can read the specs properly.

Average IPS panel, slightly better than cheap gaming laptop's IPS screen.

You think having an i7 or i3 make a difference. The 2 in 1 is the heaver one.

For those comparing the XPS15, should also note the XPS15 is much smaller overall in every dimension. For me, that's a huge deal.

Also I see that Newegg's specs are all over. The promo picture slide shows .8" thin 5 pounds and newegg's specs show .76" 4.59 pounds.

Prefacing I'm only discussing choosing between the two options mentioned. I don't necessarily recommend either because I don't know what you need it for, which usually dictates the best computer for you.

The Dell computer is spec'd better for more serious gaming. Dell also has a 74whr battery vs Asus 47whr battery (of note: Asus compensates by being able to charge 60% in 49 min). Dell's is almost a 6lb computer vs Asus 4.4lbs.

The Asus can game but you're not going to get AAA gaming without sacrificing. Example: Fortnight is recommended for at least the 1050ti.

So if you're intending gaming that has less than AAA intense graphics, more mobility, and are ok with shorter battery life in exchange for quick charging - go Asus. If you're needing AAA gaming specs, then the Asus likely won't cut it.

My 2 cents on Dell - I personally would typically recommend to avoid them and HP unless the specific model you're looking to purchase has proven to be reliable in the market. Don't get me wrong, some people have a lot of luck with them, but I seriously don't understand how hahaha. My last workplace used Dell as their computer provider. I've had 1 personal and 3 work laptops. Both my sister and mother have had personal Dell laptops. Out of those 6 laptops, only 1 of my work laptops performed as it should. Before warranty on each - 2 had external structure failures; 1 had external structure failures, massive amounts of dead pixels, and a faulty board causing DVD/R issues; 2 others had faulty boards causing charging issues. And I'm not hard on my laptops lol. I'm on my 7 year old VAIO right now (yea, those things that don't exist anymore ha ha). It's still all original and I even gamed GW2 on it just yesterday just to see if I could.

The specs are only as good as the company that housed them together and standing behind their quality.

That's just my 2 cents on it though.
