Chris Sutphen, Global Product Marketing Director 

Over the last few months, most of us have been getting reacquainted with our PCs at home. We know that having the right PC, complemented by the perfect monitor and accessories, can empower you to accomplish anything you throw at it: the power to create, work, play and communicate without limits.

After unveiling our newest XPS notebooks in May, it’s no surprise that we’re bringing that same power and style to our new XPS Desktop – adding to our award-winning XPS family in stride, and just in time to meet the new S-Series monitors.

Meet the new XPS Desktop, designed with power and purpose

Redesigned from the ground up, the XPS Desktop returns as the most powerful XPS system ever built. Powered by the latest 10th Gen Intel® Core™ (up to i9K) Processors and up to NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2070 SUPER™ graphics, it’s equipped with high-end performance features to fuel hardware intensive tasks, creative workflows, gaming and virtual reality.  

The new XPS Desktop packs amazing performance into an even smaller form factor than previous generations (19L vs. 24L) and offers plenty of expandability options with a tool-less chassis, so you can continue to improve your PC over time. It includes up to a 500W power supply to support up to 225W graphics, four storage bays and three expansion slots — a solid base for future computing needs. Our engineers designed this system to maximise performance and airflow from the open architecture. Thermals are enhanced with voltage regulator cooling, strategic venting placement and high RPM fans to maintain adequate airflow.

Designed and validated for hobbyist content creators as part of NVIDIA’s RTX Studio program and backed by NVIDIA Studio drivers, the XPS Desktop delivers the performance and reliability you need to bring any at home creative project to life. To make the selection process easy, configurations labelled as “Creator Edition” have been carefully chosen for those who aspire to cultivate their digital content creation skills – whether that be in photography, graphic design, music production or beyond.

Taking cues from fan favourite design elements of the new XPS 13, XPS 15 and XPS 17, the XPS Desktop features a modern and minimalist design in the Night Sky colour that fits perfectly into any home or office environment.

Enhance your home entertainment experience with the new S-series monitors

We’re introducing new S-series monitors featuring a sleek, new design in Platinum Silver. Whether you are streaming your favourite shows, leisurely gaming or complementing your home office setup, these monitors are available in sizes from 27” to 32” with integrated speakers, 99% sRGB colour coverage and AMD FreeSync™ technology.

Enjoy sharp and immersive visuals with the Dell 32 Curved 4K Monitor (S3221QS), which comes equipped with dual 5W speakers tuned for an enhanced audio-video experience. And for those looking to elevate their creative experiences at home, the Dell 27 4K Monitor (S2721QS) and Dell 27 QHD Monitor (S2721DS) feature IPS technology for vibrant colours across any angle.

Finally – and for the first time ever – Dell Premium Panel Exchange[i] is now available on the new S-series monitors during the limited hardware warranty period[2] to ensure bright pixels do not distract from your viewing experience.

Level up with the new G5 Gaming Desktop and XPS 15 in frost

In case you missed it, last month we announced the new G5 Gaming Desktop which is now available for purchase today. Compact, easy to expand or upgrade with tool-less entry, the G5 makes it easier to game in a smaller space like a bedroom or office. This gaming-first PC was designed for gamers of all levels and offers strong performance and smoother gameplay with Intel’s new 10th Gen Core CPUs. You can enjoy stunning 1080p gaming with lightning quick responsiveness through VR-capable NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX/RTX or AMD Radeon™ RX 5600 graphics cards.

We’re also pleased to announce that for the first time, the new XPS 15 will offer an additional colour variant — frost machined aluminium with arctic white woven glass palm rest (pictured above) across select configurations, available this Winter.

Welcome the new XPS 15 and 17 with a virtually borderless, 4-sided InfinityEdge display. (Check out 360° view of XPS 15 and XPS 17)

Often imitated. Never duplicated. Highly anticipated. The new XPS 15 and XPS 17 are here!  We’ve redesigned the XPS 15 and introduced an all-new XPS 17 with larger screen sizes so you can see and do more.

While these new additions to the XPS family offer beautiful new designs and the latest technology innovations, there’s much more to XPS than meets the eye. It’s every little detail that makes up the entire XPS experience.

Introducing the new XPS 17

(Check out an augmented reality demo of XPS 17 using your iOS or Android phone)

After a near 10-year hiatus, the XPS 17  returns as the most powerful XPS laptop ever1 But it’s not just about muscle, the XPS 17 is also the smallest 17-inch laptop on the planet2. The virtually borderless, 4-sided InfinityEdge display makes it smaller than 48% of 15-inch laptops available today3, putting the XPS 17 into a class of its own.

More power for your creative projects

 Intensive projects, gaming and VR are no match for XPS 17

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 airflow4 to fuel demanding projects.

Meet the redesigned XPS 15

(Check out an augmented reality demo of XPS 15 using your iOS or Android phone)

The redesigned XPS 15 is the smallest 15.6-inch performance class laptop5. But don’t let this compact footprint fool you! It’s got an immersive audiovisual experience like no other in its class, thanks to a larger 16:10 display and new up-firing speakers.

XPS 15 strikes 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-hour battery life6, you can easily stream your favourite shows, edit photos for Instagram, render 4K videos or create original sounds and textures on your DAW.

New experiential features extended across XPS 15 and 17

Masterfully crafted from premium materials like CNC machined aluminium and aerospace-inspired carbon fibre. (XPS 17 pictured above)

The XPS 15 and 17 are crafted from two pieces of machined aluminium, so they’re lightweight, yet strong and durable for folks on the move. We also designed a new hinge to make room for the new stunning 4-sided InfinityEdge display.

Stunning colour accuracy

100% Adobe RGB and 94% DCI P3 colour gamut delivers saturated, bright and accurate colour

Whether creating content or consuming it, the XPS systems have your back with immersive visuals. Optional 4K Ultra HD+ (3840 x 2400) resolution provides pinpoint accuracy, precise detail and sharp images. And the XPS equipped with Eyesafe display technology reduces harmful blue light while maintaining the vivid colour you need to deliver your best work.

Ready to collaborate securely

Designed into the new XPS is MaxxAudio® Pro by Waves, the suite of studio-quality audio and voice optimisations

Our smallest ever HD webcam is discretely hidden at the top of the display, ready at your command for video meet-ups and virtual get-togethers. You’ll come across loud and clear thanks to top-mounted mics with advanced echo cancellation and noise reduction technologies.

To make sure you’re not running late to virtual hangouts with friends and family, the XPS family features 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.

Surround sound 3D audio

XPS 15 and 17 audio architecture are tuned by multi-Grammy Award® winning producer, Jack Joseph Puig

XPS 15 and 17 are the first-ever laptops7 featuring Waves Nx® 3D audio for speakers tuned by multi-Grammy Award® winning producer, Jack Joseph Puig. On headphones, Waves Nx® can track your head movement to align the direction of sound to your visual point-of-view, and on speakers, Nx® headtracking puts you in the best seat of the house.

Unleash your creativity

Laura Lawson Visconti, Professional Photographer

XPS 15 and XPS 17 badged with Creator Edition on Dell.com have been carefully selected to support hobbyists and creative enthusiasts using their laptop for content creation. Laura told us, “Editing on my XPS 15 has been a game-changer due to the speed and portability of the laptop. I take it everywhere with me!” These configurations are built with creative tools that speed high-resolution video editing and graphic design processes. Colby Brown, pictured below, stated: “For me, the XPS name represents performance, reliability and portability. Core elements that any photographer or creative needs in order to focus on what we do best…creating amazing content!”

XPS sustainable packaging becomes more recyclable

Every XPS 13, 15 and 17 arrives wrapped in a gift-box style package made from sustainably sourced materials (XPS 13 pictured above)

On a planet with almost 8 billion people, every action we take makes an impact. Dell has set a goal of using 100% sustainable packaging by 2030, made from recycled or renewable material. We have eliminated foam and single-use plastic bags8 with the new XPS family, getting us steps closer to that Moonshot Goal. You can toss the entire XPS box in the recycling bin without thinking twice since it contains recycled ocean-bound plastics, locally recycled plastic, sustainable materials and recycled corrugate.
