One of the most universally acclaimed notebook lineups in the current computing era, Dell’s XPS range, is being updated for 2020, Dell announced earlier today as part of its latest CES appearance.
The development is completely unsurprising, but the fact that the newest annual refresh is already official and on its way to the market underlines a welcome feeling of urgency on Dell’s part. Especially since the improvements it offers go way beyond CPU serial numbers and other such trivial things.
Not that having a year newer CPU is irrelevant, but let’s face it, the average user experience will on a $1,500 notebook from 2020 will be indistinguishable from the one on a $1,500 notebook from 2019. That figure is just for reference, mind you, as actual pricing details will heavily depend on the exact configuration you’ll be willing to pay for.
This year’s range still starts at $1,000, as is usually the case. Of course, the 10th-generation Intel CPUs are the brains of the new notebooks, but they aren’t as attractive to look at as the new InfinityEdge design that takes Dell’s bezel-less laptop concept to even finer margins.
So much that Dell claims this is first “virtually borderless” portable computer in the history of the industry. Dell is already accepting pre-orders for both the XPS 13 and XPS 15 and is currently targeting complete global availability by the middle of February.
