Hi everyone! So I've been researching for a while and I'm down to three variations of the Dell XPS 15 laptops. Each machine has advantages over the others.
Which one would you guys say is the best overall?

I will be using my laptop for gaming, web surfing, watching films, college work etc. 
My games aren't too fancy so I don't necessarily need the GTX 1050. My main problem with the 9560 models is the 256 SSD!
 

-9550
Pros:16G RAM, 512G SSD, Ultra HD/ Cons: GTX 960M w/2GB GDDR5, smaller battery, refurbished

-9560 $1400
i7-7700HQ, GTX 1050 with 4GB GDDR5, cheaper price, brand new/Cons: 8G RAM, 256 SSD, FHD

56WHr battery

GTX 1050 is much more efficient and powerful than 960M. RAM and SSD are easily upgraded, GPU and CPU are not.

You can't add any more, but you could replace the SSD with a larger one

It's a bit of a waste though as you pay for the SSD in part of the price but then replace it so it has no use.

 

 

@OP, what games are you looking to play? The 960M isn't a bad choice, it can run most games at 1080p but you will have to sacrifice detail.
