According to Dell, the XPS 17 was designed as the “most powerful XPS laptop ever” and equipped with the latest 10th generation Intel Core processors and NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 graphics with Max-Q design. The beefy notebook also needs an effective heat dissipation system, and the company uses a patented double opposite exhaust fan for more airflow and improved temperatures. With so much power, most large laptops have a disappointingly short battery life. Dell is aiming for “up to 20 hours on FHD +”
If a 17-inch screen is too much of a good thing for you, the redesigned XPS 15 may be faster. Dell similarly claims that it is the “smallest 15.6-inch laptop in the performance class” and looks exactly as you would expect. Like the rest of the 2020 XPS series, the 16:10 screen of the 15-inch version is surrounded on all sides, including the bottom, by a minimal bezel. You can get it with a Full HD + screen or upgrade to the 4K UHD + with similar specifications to the 17-inch version.
Just like the larger model, the XPS 15 is equipped with 10th generation Intel Core processors (i5, i7 or i9) and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650Ti graphics. Dell is more ambitious in terms of estimated battery life. The new XPS 15 lasts up to 25 hours on FHD +.
