Create with color
Display like no other: Take full advantage of HDR content’s superior dynamic range with Dolby Vision™, which can deliver colors never seen on SDR PC displays. Dolby Vision content can deliver highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are up to 10 times darker. Plus, the stunning VESA certified DisplayHDR™ 500-nit display on the optional 4K+ panel enables over 16 million colors that have more depth and dimension than ever before.See every detail: The optional 4K Ultra HD+ (3840×2400) touch display offers pinpoint accuracy for all of your computing needs. See the detail of every pixel in photos without needing to zoom in or see more content while browsing the web.Color that pops: Equipped with 100% Adobe RGB and 94% DCI-P3 color gamut, your screen delivers saturated colors while a 1650:1 contrast ratio allows you to see the brightest brights and darkest darks. And 500-nit brightness provides more clarity in bright light, like outdoors, while a 0.65% anti-reflective coating cuts the glare of a glossy screen.Easy on the eyes: Eyesafe® display reduces harmful blue light and maintains vivid color. It’s the first panel to intelligently manage light energy and the source, selectively reducing harmful blue light and dispersing it across the light spectrum.
Stellar in size
Precision manufacturing: 100% of the enclosure is sculpted by a CNC (computer numerical control) machining process. A high precision, machine-milled aluminum chassis creates an elegant design with high build quality that’s stronger and stiffer than magnesium or plastic.
Cool and light: The black carbon fiber palm rest is inspired by the aerospace industry allowing for maximum strength and minimal weight.
Superior screen: The latest Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 is strong, as well as impact and scratch resistant.
Diamond-cut sidewalls: Anodizing provides a superior, scratch-resistant surface, but here, edges are dipped a second time to further prevent damage from repeated plugging and unplugging of peripherals. Using this finish on the metal achieves the perfect color without using paint, which could chip away over time.
The finest details: Stainless inlayed logos are laser cut out of a sheet of stainless steel and dropped into the machined-cut outline by hand.
Elevated essentials: Elements like the display, keys and touchpad are all larger for an easier, more optimized user experience. The XPS features a massive display, a big, comfortable touchpad and an edge-to-edge backlit keyboard with large key caps for maximum productivity.
Easier to open: The new twin coil press fit hinge is designed to maximize the screen to body ratio and enable 4-sided InfinityEdge. The new hinge design makes it easier to open, while staying stable when you are using the touchscreen.
Revolutionary webcam construction: The new XPS 17 webcam is small (only 2.25 mm) and also better. A new 4-element lens uses more elements than a typical webcam to deliver sharp video in all areas of the frame, while temporal noise reduction uses advanced noise reduction, significantly improving video quality, especially in dim lighting conditions. Finally, the lens is assembled with precise machinery to ensure all points of the image are in focus.
Immerse yourself in sound
Serious about sound: Expand audio into an immersive 3D soundscape with our quad speaker design and Waves Nx® 3D audio for speakers. Any music, movie, or game plays with depth and width that seems to defy the laws of physics. The XPS 17 is the first-ever laptop featuring Waves Nx® 3D audio for speakers tuned by multi-Grammy Award® winning producer, Jack Joseph Puig.*
Mic check: Top-mounted mics provide for a better audio experience in Skype conference calls and for far-field Cortana, allowing you to talk to your laptop from up to 14 ft (4 m) away.
Ready when you are
Start in an instant: A built-in lid sensor allows you to open the lid and power up in milliseconds, no matter what power-state you are in.
You are the password: Choose between two secure, personalized ways to log on. Wake your system with Windows Hello as the infrared camera recognizes your face and unlocks your XPS with secure facial recognition technology. The fingerprint reader integrated into the power button lets you log on with just a touch.
Easy on-the-go: Sacrificing the essentials for a thinner body is unheard of. With four Thunderbolt™ 3 ports, one-cable connect for Dell docking, headphone jack and a full SD card slot you can count on high-speed connectivity, flexibility of power-in and transferring files from your camera on-the-go.
Work or play all day: You’ll experience the long battery life – up to 23 hours, 25 minutes on a Full HD+ model with a 97WHr battery when using productivity applications like Word or Excel or up to 13 hours, 8 minutes when streaming Netflix. On our UHD+ panel, get up to 14 hours and 8 minutes using productivity apps or up to 7 hours and 28 minutes of Netflix streaming.
