Intel just released their latest 8th Generation mobile processors, code named “Coffee Lake-H”, some with 6 cores, and an i9 version that Intel claims can provide “the ultimate content creation experience” in a laptop. Several laptop manufacturers also announced new models with these chips, including an updated XPS 15 from Dell. The XPS 15 has gained a strong reputation as a photographer’s mobile Windows workstation (John Shaw uses one), and this model (9570) raises the bar even higher. All tool choices are compromises, but if one is looking for a powerful 15” Windows laptop with a screen covering the Adobe RGB color space, high-end discrete graphics, very fast storage, lots of RAM, and only weighing about 4.5 pounds, this is definitely one to consider.
