These are the Best cases for Dell XPS 17: Case Logic, Tomtoc, mCover, and more

The Dell XPS 17 is one of the most premium 17 inch laptops around. Re-introduced last year after almost 10 years since we saw a large 17 inch XPS, the new model comes with a high-quality aluminum chassis, ultra-thin bezels, and powerful hardware making it great for all sorts of users. The latest-gen XPS 17 9710 model comes with the 11th-gen Intel Tiger Lake-H processor options available with up to an octa-core Core i9-11980HK paired with up to 64GB of DDR4 memory and a 4TB PCIe M.2 SSD. For graphics, there’s the option of going for standard Intel UHD or NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3050 (4GB) or an RTX 3060 (6GB).


The 17 inch display is available in a standard FHD+ (1920 x 1200) resolution non-touch, or a UHD+ (3840 x 2400) resolution touch panel, both offering 500 nits brightness. Other notable features include four Thunderbolt 4 ports, an SD card slot, Wi-Fi 6, Windows Hello face recognition and a large 97Whr battery. Dell has also confirmed the entire XPS range, including the XPS 17, will be eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 11 once it’s available for the general public later this year.
