The 17-inch is back after several years
Dell updates its XPS laptops with the redesigned XPS 15 and the new XPS 17. Both laptops ditch legacy ports for USB-C ports a la MacBook and have displays with a 16:10 aspect ratio.
The XPS 15 2020 is the model’s first major redesign in five years, now sporting a bigger 15.6-inch display, 10th-gen Intel processors, and optional GTX 1650Ti Max-Q discrete GPU. The XPS 15 2020’s new display trims down the bottom chin further and has either 4K or Full HD display options. Configurations include up to an i9-10885H processor, up to 64GB RAM, and up to 2TB of internal storage. For the ports, you get a USB-C 3.1 port, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, and a full-size SD card reader. Dell claims that even at 18mm thin, the XPS 15 2020 can last up to 25 hours for the Full HD model.
On the other hand, the XPS 17 is the first 17-inch model Dell has launched for quite some time. Dell claims that despite having a 17-inch display, the XPS 17 is almost 50% smaller than most 15-inch laptops in the market today. Configuration options are the same with the XPS 15 2020, though you can opt for an RTX 2060 GPU on the XPS 17.
The XPS 17 has a custom vapor chamber to keep the internals cool even at full loads. For ports, you get four Thunderbolt 3 ports and a full-size SD card reader. It also has an impressive footprint with its 19.5mm thin chassis and 4.65 pounds starting weight.
Both laptops will be available this summer. The XPS 15 2020 starts at $1299.99(~Php 65.5k), while the XPS 17 will start at $1499.99(~Php 75.6k).
