Dell XPS 17 2020 review: Design

This laptop borrows the design of the smaller XPS 15 and XPS 13, making it among the most elegant 17-inch laptops on the market.

It has all the outstanding design features of the XPS series, such as the silver aluminum exterior, a nearly bezel-less display, and a comfortable soft-touch deck. The interior is black, which is great, but it could be more beautiful if it were Arctic White color like the XPS 13.

The Dell XPS 2020 measures 14.74x9.76x0.77 inches and weighs 4.65-5.53 pounds. It feels heavy but impressively thin for a laptop at its size. It is just a little larger and heavier than Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro.

The laptop houses four USB-C ports that double as charging ports and offer DisplayPort compatibility. There are an SD Card reader and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device is shipped with a USB-A adapter and an HDMI 2.0 adapter.

Dell XPS 17 2020 screen

The 4-sided InfinityEdge screen leaves out the thick bottom bezel to feature a seamless, nearly all-screen display. This design delivers a 93.7% screen-to-body ratio, which is ideal for multitasking and watching films.

The display of the Dell XPS 17 (2020) delivers satisfying deep black shades, making it easier to read on-screen text. With minimal bezels, you will have a better experience when working in the split-screen mode.

For film watching, you will be served with vibrant colors, great detail, and high contrast that make images pop out.
