This summer Dell started showing off an upcoming laptop with a 15.6 inch with super-thin bezels, allowing the laptop to be a bit more compact than your typical 15 incher. The Dell XPS 15 with Infinity Display basically looks like a bigger version of the Dell XPS 13 which I reviewed earlier this year.
At the time, Dell wasn’t saying much about the specs for the upcoming Dell XPS 15 laptop. But now the folks at WinFuture have obtained more details about the notebook.
First up, it’ll be powered by an Intel Skylake processor with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics. Ther are options for 1920 x 1080 pixel and 3840 x 2160 pixel IGZO displays, and touchscreens are optional.
The new Dell XPS 15 will reportedly be available with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of solid state storage. The notebook has two USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader and HDMI port, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, and a Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) connector which you can use to connect VGA, Ethernet, or other adapters. Dell will also offer a docking station that can connect to the Thunderbolt port.
According to WinFuture, the Dell XPS 15 9550 notebook measures about 0.67 inches thick and weighs about 3.8 pounds, making it pretty compact for notebook with a big screen.
Just don’t expect it to be cheap: a top-of-the-line model is said to be priced at nearly $2,200, although there will be lower-priced options available.
