Lisa Gade reviews the Dell XPS 17 (9700), the new 17” model in the XPS lineup of premium laptops. Though the footprint isn’t much bigger than the already compact and slim XPS 15, Dell managed to pack a 17” IPS class 16:10 aspect ratio display. It’s available with a full HD+ or wide gamut 4K+ display, both rated at 500 nits with HDR 400 support. The notebook runs Windows 10 on Intel 10th gen, 45 watt CPUs up to an 8-core i9. It’s available with NVIDIA RTX 2060 Max-Q or GTX 1650 Ti dedicated graphics. It has an MS Precision trackpad, white backlit keyboard, 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports, Wi-Fi 6, upgradable RAM and M.2 SSDs and two forms of biometrics. It’s geared toward content creation and consumption, though it can handle some gaming too.
