The new Dell laptop includes a carbon fibre composite palm rest and, like its predecessor, an aluminium chassis. A 4K+ LCD panel with 500 nits of peak brightness and an FHD+ alternative with incredibly small bezels and a 93.7% screen-to-body ratio will be the two screen options for the laptop. The former boasts 94% DCI-P3 colour gamut coverage and DisplayHDR+ certification, which is an upgrade from the other laptops from Dell.
The first model in the series will be the most advanced, including a Core i9 processor and GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card. The Dell XPS 17 9730 is also compatible with the latest 13th Gen Intel Core processors, including the i9-13900H, i7, and i5.
Because they operate a little bit cooler than IHX CPUs, Raptor Lake processors are perfect for laptops in the XPS class. The processors are capable of supporting 4TB PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD and up to 64GB of RAM. The GeForce RTX 4000 series graphics cards have an output of 60W, which is considered entry-level.
The Dell XPS 17 9730 laptop has an SD card reader, a 3.5mm audio jack, and four Thunderbolt 4.0 ports. A 97Wh battery inside the laptop supports 130W fast charging over USB-C. Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity are supported by the laptop.
Price & Availability
The cost of the Dell XPS 17 9730 laptop starts at $3,749, and they are offered in only a few countries for now. Lower hardware options of the Dell XPS 17 9730 will be made available later this year by Dell. More details about the global availability of the laptop will be made public soon.
