5 Cool New PCs In Dell's XPS, Inspiron And Gaming Lineups

Dell's Spring Launch

As we head into spring, Dell is refreshing many of its popular PCs aimed at productivity, entertainment and gaming. New launches in the XPS, Inspiron and Alienware lineups are arriving now, while Dell is also unveiling new branding for its Inspiron gaming laptops. Improved designs, better performance (with a big focus on graphics) and enhanced portability are among the major themes of Dell's next wave of PCs.

What follows are five cool new PCs that Dell is launching this spring.

XPS 15

While the new edition of the XPS 15 will use the same chassis as the previous model, the 15.6-inch laptop will get a big boost in horsepower with six-core, eighth-gen Intel Core processors (up to Core i9) and discrete Nvidia GeForce graphics (up to GTX 1050Ti). Dell says the new XPS 15 also remains the smallest 15.6-inch performance laptop — with a body equal to a typical 14-inch laptop, thanks to the minimal bezel "Infinity Display." The new XPS 15 weighs 4 pounds and offers battery life of up to 21.5 hours, which Dell says is the longest battery life for a 15-inch laptop on the market. For the display, the XPS 15 offers a 4K/UHD model (3,840 x 2,160 resolution), as well as an FHD (1,920 x 1,080) version.

The new Dell XPS 15 will be available in May with a starting price of $999.

Inspiron All-In-Ones

Dell is launching several new Inspiron all-in-one models, including the new Inspiron 24 5000 AIO (pictured). The PC features a 23.8-inch FHD display with a minimal bezel, which is available in both touch screen and non-touch configurations. The AIO also includes optional Nvidia GTX 1050 graphics, up to 32 GB of RAM, compatibility with Intel Optane memory, a pop-up webcam and an articulating stand.

Meanwhile, the new Inspiron 27 7000 AIO offers the same optional Nvidia graphics, articulating stand and up to 32 GB of RAM, but stands out with its optional 4K/UHD 27-inch display. Both Inspiron AIOs feature SmartByte streaming technology for enhanced video streaming and video conferencing.

The new Dell Inspiron 24 5000 AIO has a starting price of $849.99, while the new Inspiron 27 7000 AIO has a starting price of $999.99. Both AIOs will be available in late May.

Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 Special Edition

Dell is debuting a Special Edition of the Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 featuring an "Abyss Black" finish. The convertible laptop offers a 4K/UHD touch screen, discrete Nvidia graphics (GeForce MX130) and SmartByte streaming technology. The Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 Special Edition also includes eighth-gen Intel Core processors, Windows Hello facial recognition login and an included Dell Active Pen, and the laptop weighs 3.83 pounds.

Alienware 15 & 17

Dell says its new Alienware 15 and 17 gaming laptops offer enhanced performance along with a body that includes improved materials and thermal solutions. The laptops offer up to Intel Core i9 K Series processors, support for graphics cards from Nvidia or AMD and an optional Alienware Graphics Amplifier. The Alienware 15 and Alienware 17 (pictured) also introduce premium materials — anodized aluminum, magnesium alloy, steel-reinforcements and copper thermal management. Additionally, the new laptops include an improved keyboard with support for n-key rollover, 2.2mm of key travel and reinforcement with a steel back plate.

Dell has re-branded its Inspiron gaming line as the "G Series," and the company is introducing several new models including the G5 15 (pictured). The 15-inch laptop features Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, up to six-core eighth-gen Intel Core processors, dual fans and a thickness of just under an inch. Other new G Series models will include the 15-inch G7 15, which offers up to eighth-gen Intel Core i9 processors and a UHD display, as well as the G3 15 and 17, which include Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 or 1060 graphics.
