Newest Dell XPS Lineup Brings the Upgrades

Today, Dell officially unveiled our new line-up of XPS devices, including the first virtually borderless InfinityEdge display in a 15-inch laptop, first 4K Ultra HD display in a 2-in-1, improved performance in the world’s smallest 13-inch laptop and more.

Personally, I’m very happy these products are now available, because as the manager of our @Dell account on Twitter, it has seemed like not a day went by that someone on the social network didn’t ask us when the new XPS 15 would be here! Luckily, several of our fans have a great sense of humor, and here is a sample of their creativity that kept me entertained:

It has been a long wait since June when our partner Microsoft gave the audience a sneak peek at the new XPS 15 at its Computex keynote. Those who were tweeting us longed for the XPS 13’s unique 4K Ultra HD InfinityEdge display in a 15-inch laptop. But, the four and a half months since that preview is only a fraction of how long Microsoft and Dell engineers have been closely collaborating. They’ve worked hard to ensure that the XPS family of PCs represents the top-of-the-line features and experiences, in terms of what Windows 10 PCs can do.

Customers are also involved in every step of the product development process, and many of them let us know that they wanted improved performance in our XPS 13. While they loved the virtually borderless InfinityEdge display, they also craved more memory, and you can now get 16GB of RAM on this award-winning laptop. Road warriors can continue to enjoy the portability of this 13-inch laptop in an 11-inch frame, along with an even longer battery life.

But, the XPS 15 and XPS 13 aren’t the only two new and improved members of this family. The new XPS 12 2-in1 has an innovative design that lets you easily switch between laptop and tablet with one hand. It’s also the only 2-in-1 device with a 4K Ultra HD display option that gives you 6 million more pixels than a Full HD display, as well as high resolution cameras – 8MP world-facing, 5MP user-facing.

And, finally, if you saw my recent post about how we’re finding new life for carbon fiber, you’ll know I’m also happy to see that these XPS laptops are among our most environmentally friendly ever – in both product and packaging. XPS laptops are designed with smarter materials so that we avoid materials of concern including cadmium, lead, hexavalent chromium, mercury, some phthalates; and, they are all BFR/PVC-free. And, all XPS notebooks also ship in recyclable, compost-friendly packaging, including our highly renewable bamboo trays.

Smart materials and design, paired with the recent Windows 10 rollout, the latest chips from Intel, vibrant display technologies, top connectivity options including Thunderbolt 3 and more, all mean I think you’ll agree these XPS laptops are worth the wait!
