Which dell laptop to choose for a Dell WD15
Technically, you can use other systems with WD15.
At the very least, you want a system with a USB-C port that supports video output (or DisplayPort Alt Mode).
If you want to charge your system from WD15, then you need a system that charges from your USB-C port, and not all systems do this.
Then there is the question of how many watts your system needs.
If it is 60 watts or less and the system supports USB-C charging, you should be fine.
If the system needs more than 60 watts, it must be a Dell system (WD15 only provides up to 60 watts for non-Dell systems).
In some cases, to charge more powerful systems you need to make sure that your WD15 has a higher watt adapter.
Finally, systems that are not on the actual compatibility list may not be able to use the WD15 built-in power button or upgrade to the WD15 operating system, even if all else fails.
