Dell announces new XPS 15, XPS 17, and Alienware laptops with 10th Gen Intel chips and InfinityEdge displays

Today, Dell announced a number of new XPS and Alienware laptops. The Dell XPS 17 and XPS 15 are the company’s newest high-end laptops. They feature USB-C ports and 16:10 “InfinityEdge” displays. Alienware is Dell’s gaming brand and m17 and m15 include the 10th Gen Intel chips and updated graphics.

Dell XPS 15 & XPS 17

The Dell XPS 15 is a massive redesign of the popular laptop. The most striking feature is the 15.6-inch (available in 4K and FHD), 16:10 InfinityEdge display. The aspect ratio allows for more vertical space, which is really nice for web browsing, and it has very thin bezels on all sides. Another big feature is the addition of two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports and one USB-C 3.1 port. Dell is going all-in on USB-C and ditching USB-A and HDMI.

Other specifications for the XPS 15 include Intel’s 10th Gen Core i9 10885H 45W chip, 64GB of RAM, and 2TB of storage. Dell says the laptop can get up to 25 hours of battery life on the Full HD model. The XPS 15 is available today for $1,299.

The Dell XPS 17 is much like the XPS 15, but obviously it has a larger 17-inch 16:10 display. Again, it has very small bezels and you can opt for 4K or FHD resolution. Despite the large display, Dell calls this the “smallest 17-inch laptop on the planet,” due to the slim bezels and thin body.

Like the 15-inch model, the XPS 17 features Intel’s 10th Gen Core i9 45W processors, 64GB of RAM, and 2TB of storage. The XPS 17 can also be equipped with either NVIDIA’s GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q or the more powerful RTX 2060 GPU. The 17-inch model has four USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports. It won’t be available until later this summer for $1,499.
