Dell just announced its refreshed XPS 15 and XPS 17 Windows laptops featuring Intel’s Alder Lake-H 12-gen processors. There are three new CPU options: Core i5-12500H, Core i7-12700H and Core i9-12900HK. The new laptops also get upgraded DDR5-4800 RAM configurable up to 64GB while storage is still of the PCIe4 x4 SSD variety and is capped at up to 4TB. The rest of the spec sheet and design are identical to last year’s models down to the black and white color finishes.
You get a choice of a 3840 x 2400px IPS touchscreen option on both sizes as well as good-old 1920 x 1200px non-touch versions. The 15-inch model can be configured with an OLED display of 3456 x 2160px resolution. You can configure the laptops with Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPUs for the base 15-inch model, all the way up to an RTX 3060 for the 17-incher.
The new 2022 Dell XPS 15 starts at $1,449 for the Core i5 CPU model with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. XPS 17 starts from $1,849.
