Back at CES 2022, Dell unveiled the XPS 13 Plus, emblematic of our forward-looking vision—a sleek, contemporary device crafted with simplicity as its essence. The design captivated attention, earning accolades and describing it as elegant, stylish, stunning, and breathtaking. One particularly cherished mention dubbed it as “the future is here.”
This audacious design has permanently transformed the identity of the XPS brand just in time for CES 2024. Now, we’re streamlining the design language across our entire XPS lineup. Dell is introducing new screen dimensions with the XPS 16 and XPS 14, and we’re reimagining the XPS 13 Plus as the XPS 13. These three laptops share features that minimize distractions, emphasizing productivity at its core.
The fresh XPS designs adopt a minimalist approach that elevates the brand. Crafted from CNC machined aluminium and Gorilla Glass 3, available in Graphite and Platinum hues, the portfolio boasts a striking, unconventional appearance. Key components enhance the laptop experience: a touch function row for seamless switching between media and function keys, a glass touchpad with haptic feedback, and larger keycaps for a comfortable typing experience.

Unveiling the New XPS Portfolio
Dell revolutionized the engineering of narrow bezels to shrink the footprint and expand screen real estate. Now, welcome the immersive 16- and 14-inch screens. The XPS 16 and XPS 14 prioritize portability without compromising on performance or design.
The XPS 16 leads the portfolio, boasting supercharged performance for demanding workloads. Equipped with the latest Intel Core Ultra processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs (up to the GeForce RTX 4070 GPU), the XPS 16 delivers up to 80W of sustained performance. Perfect for intensive tasks like video editing or testing AI software, it ensures a seamless and rapid experience.
Blending performance, design, and portability, the XPS 14 caters to those craving flexibility in their workspace. 21% lighter than the XPS 16, yet offering robust performance, it supports optional NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs (up to the GeForce RTX 4050 GPU), allowing effortless editing and playback of high-resolution videos. With extended battery life, it’s a refined companion designed for mobility.
Both XPS 16 and XPS 14 are validated by NVIDIA Studio, delivering top-tier performance for creative tasks like 3D rendering, video editing, and live streaming, while providing exclusive access to the Studio AI-powered suite of tools and enhanced stability with NVIDIA Studio Drivers.
XPS 13, Pioneering the Trend The XPS 13 sparked our design revolution, establishing our future vision with its iconic design. Starting at a mere 2.6 lbs, it stands as Dell’s thinnest and lightest XPS, ensuring portability wherever you go. The renewed laptop offers three new display options (FHD+, QHD+ touch, and 3K+ OLED touch), catering to diverse visual needs, from everyday tasks to high-resolution content creation. The XPS 13 serves as the ideal multitasking machine, balancing school, work, personal projects, or entertainment effortlessly.
AI and Generative AI (GenAI) are spearheading the latest wave of innovation, unlocking new possibilities in PC technology. It’s exhilarating to witness PCs integrated with AI acceleration—something we hinted at earlier, but let’s delve deeper. Powered by Intel Core Ultra processors, the new XPS lineup incorporates a built-in AI acceleration engine, featuring an NPU (neural processing unit). This innovation enables the PC to leverage the appropriate computing engine for specific workloads, enhancing tasks like photo editing in Adobe Lightroom, and speeding up processes while preserving battery life.
The laptops come equipped with Copilot in Windows 11, harnessing AI capabilities to streamline daily tasks effortlessly. The portfolio includes a dedicated Copilot key, simplifying access to your everyday AI assistant, and ensuring uninterrupted workflow.
Sustainability at Its Core
Dell remains committed to integrating more sustainable materials in both its products and packaging. The new XPS family incorporates the highest level of sustainable materials to date, designed with recycled aluminium and low-emissions aluminium sourced from renewable energy for the first time. This significantly reduces the material’s carbon footprint by up to 89%.
Packaging for XPS laptops comprises 100% recycled or renewable content, aligning with our ambitious 2030 Advancing Sustainability Goals. The new XPS family is registered EPEAT Gold and complies with EPEAT’s stringent climate criteria, earning the EPEAT Climate+ Designation, embodying the industry’s best practices for decarbonization.
