The new configurations are welcome, if expected, information. The XPS 15 and XPS 17 are consistently a number of the top models of their categories, focused on users who wish to mix powerful specs with the pinnacle-notch build quality and don’t thoughts paying well over $1,000 for the privilege. That said, Dell has continuously had issues cooling those chips in such thin chassis (the 15-inches, in particular). Prospective buyers can also need to watch for early reviews to see if the brand new 15-inch can keep the Alder Lake chips at affordable temperatures.
The Dell XPS 15 begins at $1,449, and the XPS 17 starts at $1,849.
