Product Description

After 10 years, the Dell XPS 17 returns as the smallest 17-inch laptop in the industry at launch. Its gorgeous 4-sided InfinityEdge display with 16:10 aspect ratio makes it smaller than half of the 15-inch laptops on the market.
Thanks to Dell's unique thermal solution, the XPS 17 manages to drive the latest 10th-gen Intel Core processors and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics.
Machined from two pieces of aluminium, the XPS 17 is lightweight yet strong and durable. The new hinge design works in concert with the 4-sided InfinityEdge display. With up to UHD+ (3840x2400) resolution, the display on the XPS 17 is equipped with Eyesafe technology that reduces blue light emission. It is topped by the smallest HD webcam discretely hidden in the bezel.
Along with XPS 15, the XPS 17 is the first laptop to feature Waves Nx 3D audio.
