    O dear, what a decision to make, assuming you are looking at the top spec of each!

    9500:

    Newer
    Bigger screen
    Smaller
    Better dGPU

    7590

    Bigger battery
    USB and HDMI ports
    Delete button where it should be
    8 core processor
    Cheaper

    Make your choice!

    You do know the i7-10875H is 8 core right?

    Well I am sure they will release an 8 core version of it in the UK eventually. Not that I think the XPS can cool an 8 core anyway...

    If it had the 8 core i9 it might take some of the pain from the lack of ports.

    I'm curious but when does dell get rid of selling the 7590 on their site based on experience? Example when they went from the 9550 to 9560 and then 9570. Because don't they almost always sell only 1 model? So when they were selling the 9560, you could still buy the 9550? So once they start selling 9570, that means no more 9550 can be bought new?

    The 9500 can be charged from either side via USB-C. That is something I'm envious of as a 7590 owner, besides the 16:10 display. The 9500 got rid of the inverted T arrow keys, at a time when Apple moved back to them. The WiFi card is soldered on in the 9500, unlike the 7590. The 9500 has more bandwidth, with an additional TB3 port. Speakers are in a more optimal location. And to be really picky, I've noticed the 9500 got rid of the next and back media keys.

    Would be interesting to know how long the 7590 will be available. For those who dont like dongles, its the choice.

    Curious but for the dell 9500... if you had a dell pw7015l powerbank, would that work for it? I see on the video, it uses usb-c to charge. I mean it does have a charging port like the xps 15 9550 right?

    No, the powerbank you state has the barrel style power connector. The 9500 only supports USB-C slow charging.

    The USB output would not charge as its 5v only.

    The 9500 also supports full speed charging using a non standard charger with a USB-C connector.

    For anyone who is confused, the USB-C spec has a maximum 100W output, so dell made a 130W charger with a USB-C plug!

    Which begs the question, why doesn't someone make a barrel to USB-C adapter for the older charger!

    OMG, they do
