In an attempt to take on Apple MacBook Pro and Microsoft Surface Book 3 line-up, Dell has redesigned the XPS 15 and introduced an all-new XPS 17 laptops with larger screen sizes so users can see and do more.
As far as the new XPS 17 from Dell is concerned, the XPS 17 returns as the most powerful XPS laptop ever after a 10-year hiatus. Claiming that the XPS 17 is also the smallest 17-inch laptop on the planet, Dell notified, “The virtually borderless, 4-sided InfinityEdge display makes it smaller than 48% of 15-inch laptops available today3, putting the XPS 17 into a class of its own.”
Dell XPS 17 features the latest 10th Gen Intel Core Processors and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics with Max-Q design. Under the hood, the company has packed a unique thermal design for increased fan airflow to fuel demanding projects.
Now coming on to the redesigned XPS 15, Dell asserted that it is the smallest 15.6-inch performance class laptop. However, the laptop has got an immersive audio-visual experience with a larger 16:10 display and new up-firing speakers.
With the latest 10th Gen Intel Core Processors, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics with Max-Q design and up to 25-hour battery life, Dell claims, “you can easily stream your favourite shows, edits photos for Instagram, render 4K videos or create original sounds and textures on your DAW.”
In addition, the XPS 15 and 17 laptops by Dell are crafted from two pieces of machined aluminum, so they are lightweight, yet strong and durable for users who need to travel often. Beside this, Dell also designed a new hinge to make room for the new 4-sided InfinityEdge display. The XPS 15 and 17 laptops are equipped with Eyesafe display technology reduces harmful blue light while maintaining the vivid colour.
Moreover, Dell claims that its smallest ever HD webcam is discretely hidden at the top of the display. The users will also come across top-mounted mics with advanced echo cancellation and noise reduction technologies.
The XPS family features Windows Hello – a fingerprint reader built right into the power button – so you can safely unlock your PC and get to visiting without entering a password. This will ensure that users join virtual hangouts with friends, co-workers and family on time.
What’s more interesting is that Dell XPS 15 and 17 laptops features Waves Nx 3D audio for speakers tuned by multi-Grammy Award winning producer, Jack Joseph Puig. “On headphones, Waves Nx can track your head movement to align the direction of sound to your visual point-of-view, and on speakers, Nx headtracking puts you in the best seat of the house,” Dell claimed in a blog post.
