Looking for a new laptop before January

I've got my eye on the Dell XPS 15 with the following specs:

CPU: Skylake Core i7-6700HQ
Memory: 8GB 2133Mhz DDR4
GPU: GTX 960M with 2GB GDDR5
Display: 15.6" FHD (1920x1080) InfinityEdge non-touch
Storage: 256GB PCIe SSD
Battery: 84Whr
Cost: $1850 + tax

Is this a good choice? Is there anything comparable? I love the display and small form factor for a 15" laptop. I'll mainly need it for school doing online courses, research, and word processing. Would also like to be able to use it for some lighter indy style games from Steam.

Anybody own this one that can weigh in on quality or other recommendations? Thanks in advance!

I should add that my budget is under $2000 before tax, if there are other recommendations out there in that ballpark

I am also in the market for a laptop but my budget is less then $1500. I am leaning more towards xps 15. Hopefully there are good deals on black friday.
Other laptops i am considering are Acer Nitro, Lenovo Y700.

One last attempt to revive this topic looking for recommendations and then I'll let it die
