Dell’s XPS lineup comes very close to the MacBook Pro in terms of build quality, trackpad, and other aspects. It is one of those premium notebook lineups that takes a huge leap in performance and features with every iteration. Now, it appears that the next 15-inch XPS model is going to be a delight for content creators, creative professionals and those bent on media consumption.
Powered by Intel’s 8th-Generation Processors, the Next Dell XPS Model Is Expected to Kill in the Resolution Department
For a 15-inch notebook to tout a 5K display, it would mean a resolution of 5120 x 2880, making it the highest resolution-touting notebook. Though the 2017 MacBook Pro provides support for 5K monitors thanks to its Thunderbolt 3 throughput, its own display does not resonate as many pixels as Dell’s upcoming machine.
Unfortunately, if you take a look at the base model of the 15-inch version of Dell’s XPS lineup, it will set you back by $1,999. The new model will most likely come armed with Intel’s 8th-generation processor, and if the chip manufacturer can introduce a more powerful SKU meant for notebooks, this particular laptop will probably get that upgrade.
Battery life is going to be a concern, so Dell might incorporate a 100Wh cell, which is the legal limit you can carry on flights.
