Dell Redesigns XPS 15, Unveils All-New Supercompact XPS 17

From PC Mag: Dell today launched the latest version of its XPS 15 laptop and unveiled the XPS 17, a sleek and compact 17-inch addition to the XPS family.

The XPS 17 adds a truly giant-screen option to the line, while retaining the XPS's signature premium compact design. The XPS 17 will roll out sometime this summer at a starting price of $1,499.99, with the specific date yet to be determined.

Meanwhile, the XPS 15 is getting a full-on overhaul, with the latest components from Intel and Nvidia joined by a new, highly color-accurate display that is nearly bezel-less. The new-for-2020 XPS 15 is available today starting at $1,299.99.

As the new XPS on the block, the XPS 17 is the more intriguing announcement of the two. It will be super-slim for a 17-inch laptop, at just 0.77 inch thick, and plenty portable at 4.65 pounds. Dell claims this is the smallest 17-inch laptop available, in terms of volume. (By weight, it's not close to the lightest; LG's Gram 17, which we tested earlier this year, comes in just under 3 pounds.)

As for the XPS 15, it will also benefit from Intel’s 10th Generation Core processors. (We last tested the XPS 15 in the fall of 2019 in an OLED-screen version.) Like the XPS 17, you can choose among Core i5, Core i7, and (later on) Core i9 options.
