Today, Dell introduces its refreshed XPS lineup, a redesigned XPS 15, and brand new XPS 17 in the last ten years. Designwise, both the laptops look somewhat similar to the XPS 13, which the company announced this year at CES.
The devices have reduced bezel and a webcam with an IR camera in the top bezel. There are two more noticeable design updates – one is USB 3.1 Type-C ports, and the other one is 16:10 15.6-inch display. The company made the 16:10 screen possible by extending the screen and eliminating the bottom bezel. The XPS 15 has a screen-to-body ratio of 92.9%, whereas the XPS 17 has 93.7%. The PCs come in two resolution variants – more than 4K display with a resolution of 3840×2400 and a regular FHD (1920 x 1200) display. Consumers can choose any of the two.
For performance, both PCs are geared with 45W 10th Gen Intel H-series processors (up to Core i9-10885H) with up to 64GB of RAM and 2TB of storage. The XPS 15 offers NVIDIA Ge-Force GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q for max GPU option, whereas the XPS 17 has RTX 2060 for GPU. The company put dual opposite outlet fans, which increases the airflow by 30% and used GORE Thermal Insulation to keep the system cool.
Moreover, the Dell XPS 15 comes with 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, and an SD card reader, whereas the XPS comes with an extra two Thunderbolt 3 ports.
The starting of the XPS 15 is $1299.99 and already available for purchase while the XPS 17 will be available in summer at a start price of $1499.99.
