Written By published May 14, 2020

If you’re in the market for a new PC, take note: Dell has announced new devices that deliver larger screens, long battery life and enough power to stream your favorite shows, edit photos for Instagram, render 4K videos for YouTube or create original sounds and textures on your Digital Audio Workstation.

Dell has redesigned the XPS 15 and introduced a new XPS 17 with larger screen sizes so you can see and do more, thanks to virtually borderless, four-sided InfinityEdge displays and new hinges. Whether you’re creating content or consuming it, the XPS systems will meet your needs with immersive visuals.

After a near 10-year hiatus, the XPS 17 returns and it’s leveled up with the latest 10th Gen Intel Core Processors, up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics with Max-Q design and 19 hours of battery life to keep up with demanding projects, gaming and VR. It’s also got a thermal design that increases fan airflow and delivers higher sustained performance.

The redesigned XPS 15 has a larger 16:10 display and new speakers, striking a balance between power and portability to fuel content creation at home or on-the-go, with the latest 10th Gen Intel Core Processors, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics with Max-Q design and up to 25 hours of battery life.

If you choose the Creator Editions of these devices, you’ll find configurations built with tools that speed high-resolution video editing and graphic design processes.

So many of us are on video calls these days, and on these devices those calls are supported by Dell’s smallest ever HD webcams discretely hidden at the top of the displays. You’ll come across loud and clear thanks to top-mounted mics with advanced echo cancellation and noise reduction technologies.

Running late to virtual hangouts with friends and family? The XPS family helps you log on quickly using Windows Hello – a fingerprint reader built right into the power button – so you can safely unlock your PC and get to visiting without entering a password.

The XPS 15 starts at $1,299.99 and is available in the U.S. and Canada now and across participating European and Asian countries later this week. The XPS 17 starts at $1,499.99 and will be available in the U.S., Canada and participating European and Asian countries this summer.

With Dell Mobile Connect – available to download for free from the Microsoft Store – Android and iOS users can make calls, send texts, fully mirror their phone screen to use apps, and get notifications and drag and drop files between their phone and XPS. It’ll come pre-installed on all Dell consumer systems this spring.

And if you want to move important and hard to replace data and files from any Windows-based PC to your new Dell XPS, you can use Dell Migrate, a new, simple, do-it-yourself tool that will get you up and running fast. It starts at $39 and is now available in the U.S.
