I'm always in these posts asking if they're good for lightroom and photoshop, but I've heard awesome things about the dell xps series. But I've still got probably tech pleb questions, so:
For my uses (photo editing) will I wish I had the i7 and not i5? And can I expect long term longevity from the XPS series?
I have this laptop. I'd say it depends on your specific needs for photo editing. If you are looking for sheer processing and rendering speed there are better option (desktop, honestly). However, the screen is exceptional which is a big factor and i believe it is very color accurate. In that sense it might be among the best options for a laptop.

I mostly batch edit with presets in lightroom. I've heard whether you have images saved to an SSD or spinning hard drive and whether or not you use previews in lightroom makes a difference in how things load?
I have an old $400 (in 2013) refurbished lenovo K450 desktop with i5-4430, Nvidia GT630 and 8gb ram that can be prone to crashing but can still the job done with 10-18 megapixel files. I could upgrade ram and maybe throw in an SSD and keep using it, I just rarely do because I used a chromebook for college and now I'm kind of obsessed with working in bed or on the couch. But I should probably just suck it up? Or get another, better, desktop.

I was thinking I could plugin my external monitor (which is a 24" dell and I love it, though the glare for editing can be a PITA) to this and have the best of both worlds? I was also hoping to upgrade my camera next and I am worried how my current system will handle 24 megapixel files. They're not a ton bigger but still.

Be aware that the thunderbolt 3 port on this laptop uses only 2 PCI lanes thus limiting its potential somewhat. I do not think this is a deal breaker by any means but just FYI if you are looking to use the full TB3 capabilities (e.g. external gpu).

Are there still QC issues with these? The Amazon reviews don't look favorable.

Youre describing a gaming laptop. This isnt meant to be a gaming laptop. A thick 1060 that weighs 6 pounds and has a 3 hour battery life vs a thin xps 15 with a 1050 which is multiple times less power consuming and not meant for heavy gaming. This is an extremely great deal for a user looking for this type of laptop. You looking for a gaming laptop with a 1060 doesnt make this a bad deal.
right? these days people simply aren't satisfied with anything less than a sub-$1k desktop replacement that's thin & light enough to let them keep their desktops. lols.

ultimately, whether or not his deal is worth it is based on a) how significant of an upgrade it is from your current laptop and b) the cost of comprable machines using metrics like specs and build quality.

it's 50% common sense and 50% subjective opinion based on individual need.

I think one 8gb, since I believe you can get it up to 32gb

edit: another poster corrected me, it's 2x4gb

You're actually contradicting yourself, I already said if you're buying the look and the beauty of the laptop as well as the brand then this acually worth the money but you if you are someone like me who wants to get his money for the best possible laptop in terms of power and features then this laptop does not woth the money you can get i7 and1060 gpu for the same price or cheaper than this.
What kind of training did you do in order to become a master troll? You technique is uncanny

I use a XPS 15 for editing photos with a 24mp slr. Few thoughts for your use case:
- 4k screen after adjusting for colors is great for color sensitive work
- msata is markedly faster than a hard drive for lightroom and allows for a larger battery on the device
- 16gb ram is more important than the processor for photoshop/lightroom use

I would pass on this deal and look around for a 9550 or 9560 for 1000-1100 refurbished with a I7, 512 ssd, 16gb ram with a 4k

Its not the Brand name and look yoyure buying this laptop for, its the extremely well put together build quality. XPS models are built really well and built to last.
