Dell Describes it XPS 17 as the "most powerful XPS laptop ever". “The XPS 17 is the smallest 17-inch laptop on the planet,” claims Donnie Oliphant, Dell’s marketing director of XPS products. It’s even designed to be smaller than nearly 50 percent of all 15-inch laptops that exist in the market today.
The 17-inch display is available 4K (3840 x 2400) and FHD (1920 x 1200) panel options with the small HD webcam up top. Like the XPS 15, the larger XPS 17 can be configured up to Intel’s latest 10th Gen Core i9 45W processors, 64GB of RAM, and 2TB of storage.
Dell is also offering either Nvidia’s GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q or the more powerful RTX 2060 for discrete GPU options on the XPS 17. At a height of 19.5mm and a starting weight of 4.65 pounds, it could make the XPS 17 an interesting option for those wanting to play some games on the go or creators looking to utilize the GPU options and 45W CPU performance for video editing and more.
Dell has also added a new thermal design to the XPS 17 to improve airflow, and it involves a custom vapor chamber to keep chips cool during load. There are four USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports and a full-size SD card reader.
Dell’s new XPS 17 will be available in the summer, priced at $1,499.99.
