Dell showed off upcoming versions of its XPS line of laptops on Thursday ahead of CES 2024, featuring new, larger sizes and AI integration. The new Dell XPS 13, 14, and 16 will come with Microsoft’s Windows Copilot keys for easy access to generative AI features.

Details on Dell’s three new XPS laptops

Dell’s new XPS laptop models are successors to last year’s XPS 13 Plus. The XPS 13 Plus was renamed the XPS 13, and larger XPS 14 and 16 models were added to the line.

Like the XPS 13 Plus, the designs of these laptops focus on smoothness and touch-sensitive surfaces. The row of touch functions above the keyboard controls both the media and function keys, while the touchpad integrates smoothly with the rest of the body thanks to the seamless glass. The display uses Dell’s modern InfinityEdge panels and includes OLED touch options, variable refresh rates, high-resolution options, and Dolby Vision.

The XPS 13 starts at $1,299 in the US and will be available soon, Dell said. That may soon mean between February and late spring 2024, because that’s when Microsoft said several partners will launch laptops with the Windows button for Copilot.

The Dell XPS 16 is the new high-powered entry in the XPS laptop lineup. Runs Intel Core Ultra processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs (up to GeForce RTX 4050 GPU). The Dell XPS 16 is suitable and officially tested by NVIDIA for 3D rendering, video editing, and live streaming, just like the Dell XPS 14 line. .

The Dell XPS 14 is 21% lighter than the XPS 16, according to Dell, but is still rated for high-performance editing, gaming, and streaming. The Dell XPS 14 laptop will start at $1,699.

New laptop models feature AI acceleration engine

As most device makers do these days, Dell is emphasizing that generative AI can run on its laptops, and on the device itself. Dell’s XPS line of laptops feature an AI acceleration engine integrated with a neural processing unit for tasks including photo editing. The new XPS line runs on Windows 11, which comes with the Copilot generative AI assistant for Windows.

Competitors to Dell’s XPS laptop line

Dell’s main competitor for its XPS laptops is Apple’s MacBook Pro line, which shares some of the same sizes and sleek looks. HP, Lenovo, Microsoft and Acer offer similar products.
