Dell XPS 17 review (2020): So. Much. Screen.


Dell's largest XPS laptop in years is appealing to anyone who demands the most performance possible and an enormous screen. It's a bit hefty, but still far smaller than 17-inch laptops from years ago.

Gorgeous 17-inch screen ; Most powerful GPU in an XPS ; Great performance all around ; Strong battery life

Heavier than competing big screen laptops ; Could use a lot more ports

Designed for light- to middleweight creatives, this 17-inch laptop is tops when size matters.

Dell XPS 17 (2020) review: heavy hitter


Power by the pound.

Large, excellent screen ; Good keyboard and touchpad ; Compact (for a 17-incher) ; Impressive power

Heavy ; No USB-A ports ; Bad webcam

The Dell XPS 17 is really heavy — about five and a half pounds. But you’re only likely to see life-changing improvements if you’re often doing tasks that take full advantage of the powerful chips: the Core i7-10875H and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Max Q.

Dell XPS 17 (9700) Review


Roomy 17-inch display with option for 4K-resolution panel ; Relatively compact for a 17-incher ; Comfortable keyboard, gigantic touchpad ; Four Thunderbolt 3 ports and SD card reader ; Excellent audio quality ; Available Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060...

Expensive as configured ; Occasional coil whine ; Even when plugged in, slight power drain during intense gaming sessions ; No USB Type-A ports

The 2020 resurrection of Dell's XPS 17 is a bold, sleek laptop with a gorgeous 17-inch display, long battery life, and serious computing power.

2020 Dell XPS 17 9700 review: 17 is greater than 15


The Dell XPS 15 has been one of our favorite laptops for a long time now but the Dell XPS 17 proves that 17 is greater than 15.

The XPS design is industry leading ; Like the XPS 15, the XPS 17 display is amazing and BIGGER! ; Performance is outstanding ; Great sounding speakers, maybe the best on a Windows laptop. ; Outstanding battery life ; Basically no bezels helps to shrink...

May be a bit heavy for some ; Price may be an issue for some ; Basic webcam

The Dell XPS 17 2020 has the following features and specifications: I was very impressed with the Dell XPS 15, but this XPS 17 is bigger and better. If you can pony up the extra cash for the XPS 17, then I highly suggest it. The display’s extra space...

Dell XPS 17 review (2020)


The Dell XPS 17 is the most elegant 17-inch laptop you can buy, with blistering CPU and graphics muscle packed into a slim and attractive design.

Stunning, immersive display ; Impressive CPU and graphics power ; Comfortable keyboard ; Attractive, slim design

Can get expensive ; Weak webcam

The XPS 17’s big power and display also comes with a big price, especially if you’re adding in a 4K display and RTX graphics. If you don’t need as much real estate or graphics muscle, the smaller XPS 13 ($999 starting) and XPS 15 ($1,299) are both...
