Dell has decided to introduce big changes to its XPS lineup so the company will be releasing a redesigned version of XPS 15 and a new XPS 17. In the new models, the legacy ports have been replaced with USB-C and they will feature 16:10 displays across the main XPS laptops.
After five years, Dell has updated the XPS models and the most significant changes can be found in XPS 15. A bigger 16:10 inch display, Intel’s latest 10th Gen processors and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q graphics will be available in the new laptop.
The new model will be able to support a 16:10 aspect ratio just like Dell’s older XPS 13 model. You can either choose a more than 4K display (3840x 2400) or a regular FHD (1920 X 1200) model because both will include a tiny top-mounted webcam. You’ll also be able to configure the XPS 15 with up to Intel’s Core i9 10885H 45W chip, 64GB of RAM, and 2TB of storage.
Along with this, two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports, a regular USB-C 3.1 port, and a full-size SD card reader will also be present in the laptops. The overall profile of the laptop looks much thinner than its predecessor XPS 13 and Dell has also promised “the longest battery life of any 15-inch laptop.”
The XPS 15 model is available for $1299 and the shipping will start today.
As for XPS 17, Dell has described it as the “most powerful XPS laptop ever,” and for a model of 17 inches, it looks quite small.
“The XPS 17 is the smallest 17-inch laptop on the planet,” claims Donnie Oliphant, Dell’s marketing director of XPS products.
It has almost all the same features as XPS 15 but further details will be available as we get closer to the release date which will be sometime in late summer. The laptop will be available for $1499.
