Dell presents updated XPS 15 notebook
The rumored new version of Dell’s XPS 15 notebook, which we discussed yesterday, has been officially unveiled earlier than expected. The good news is that the new notebook does impress!
The new XPS 15 will become commercially available on October 15, as previously reported. The notebook will have two versions with both of them having 15.6-inch displays. The first version will offer Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels, 141 ppi) on a display with 170-degree viewing angles and a 1200:1 static contrast ratio, while the second version will treat your eyes with Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels, 282 ppi), 170-degree viewing angles and the same static contrast ratio of 1200:1. The Full HD notebook will come with a discrete GeForce GTX 750M graphics card with 2 GB of memory, while the Ultra HD version will offer more 3D power thanks to a discrete GeForce GTX 960M video card with 2 GB of VRAM.
Inside the new XPS 15 notebook will have an Intel Core i5 or i7 Skylake processor, up to 8 GB of RAM, a single SSD with up to 256 GB of capacity, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. Unfortunately all other tech specs are unknown but we do know that the XPS 15 will ship with Windows 10 Home 64-bit. The new notebook is also just 0.67 inches (1.7 cm) thick and weighs less than 4 pounds (1.8 kilograms), which makes it ultra portable as well.
Unfortunately the new Dell XPS 15 is a high-end notebook that will not cost pocket change. In fact Dell plans to charge USD 2200 for the top edition of this new notebook but there will also be several other versions that will be more wallet-friendly.
