Just two weeks after unveiling its new Alienware gaming laptops at PAX West 2016, Dell has introduced a new portfolio of XPS and Inspiron laptops that ship with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update installed. The company’s new XPS 13 notebook comes with a nearly borderless screen that will make new Windows 10 capabilities really shine while the affordable Inspiron 5000 models continue to deliver good value in a thinner and colorful design.
The XPS 13 laptop
The company’s XPS 13 notebook features the new 7th Generation Intel Core processors, a borderless “InfinityEdge” display (available in Full HD or Quad HD) in a nice design that combines carbon fiber and aluminum. While the notebook measures 15mm at its thickest point, Dell claims that the Full HD model delivers up to 22 hours of battery life which is seems quite unprecedented for an ultrabook.
A few other highlights:
- New beautiful, Rose Gold color available in two configurations:
- Intel 7th Generation Core i5; 8GB memory; 256GB SSD; 13.3-inch FHD
- Intel 7th Generation Core i7; 8GB memory; 256GB SSD; 13.3-inch QHD+ with Touch

- New Killer 1535 Wireless-AC technology for strong and reliable WiFi connection

The consumer-focused Inspiron 5000 notebooks are available in 15-inch and 17-inch versions with an optional Full HD diplay (an optional touch screen is also available for the 15-inch model). Both laptops feature a slimmer design and will be available in broad selection of colors including Midnight Blue and Cosmic Purple.
