Dell Refreshes XPS 15, 17 Laptops

Dell has upgraded two of its flagship laptops, the XPS 15 and the XPS 17, with both available from today.

Rather than give these two workhorses a design upgrade, Dell has opted to just beef up the components, with both laptops featuring 12th Gen Intel Core H-Series processors, up to i9k and DDR5 memory, with NVIDIA GeForce 30-Series graphics optional if you intend to do a lot of gaming or video processing.

The XPS 15 (above) sports a 15.6-inch, 4K touch screen, with 500-nit screen brightness. Both machines offer 64GB DDR5 Dual Channel at 4800MHz, and up to 4TB of storage, with the option to up another 4TB.

The XPS 17 (below) is a slightly more powerful machine, with a stunning 17-inch 4K display, and can be bolstered with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 6GB GDDR6.

To be honest, the difference between the two are slight, and the XPS 17 seems like it would be best for memory-heavy, and graphic-heavy work, like video editing, gaming, sound production, and the like.

The XPS 17 has a more powerful battery (97Whr vs 56 or 86 in the XPS 15), and sports four Thunderbolt 4 slots rather than the XPS 15’s two.

Both machines support Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, and have identical audio set ups: MaxxAudio Pro and Waves NX 3D audio, Quad-speaker, 3.5mm audio, and a dual-microphone array.

Both models, with the various options, are available from today. The XPS 15 starts at $3,499, while the XPS 17 sells from $4,999.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics option on XPS 17 is scheduled to arrive in Australia in April, and isn’t currently available, so if you want that oomph, you’ll have to wait a few weeks.
