Dell XPS 17 2020 specs

“After a near 10-year hiatus, the XPS 17 returns as the most powerful XPS laptop ever,” an official Dell blog proclaims.

“But it’s not just about muscle, the XPS 17 is also the smallest 17-inch laptop on the planet. The virtually borderless, 4-sided InfinityEdge display makes it smaller than 48% of 15-inch laptops available today, putting the XPS 17 into a class of its own.”

So there’s a lot of power inside this little machine, and it’s sure to be a big hit.

Dell‘s blog adds: “Designed to be the most powerful XPS laptop ever made, the XPS 17 features the latest 10th Gen Intel Core Processors and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics with Max-Q design.

“Packing this much performance into a laptop of this size requires engineering ingenuity to keep the system performing smoothly. Under the hood, we’ve packed a unique thermal design for increased fan airflow to fuel demanding projects.”

Alongside that, it will also have the option for a 4k screen for those who are looking to spend a bit more of their money on a new laptop.

The Dell XPS 17 9700 price hasn’t been confirmed yet, so it’s time for some guesswork. We’d assume it’ll be a bit more expensive than the Dell XPS 15 2020, so you’re probably looking at a base price of around £2,000 and a top end of possibly £4,000.
