Dell’s new XPS 15 and XPS 17 laptops have razor-thin bezels, tons of power

Dell’s XPS laptops have been among the best for years, but, until now, the 15-inch model had a very obvious sore spot: a massive bottom bezel.

Now, with the updated XPS 15 and the all-new XPS 17, that issue is gone. (The XPS 13 was “fixed” with thinner bezels earlier this year.) Both laptops have very thin bezels all around, which means the 15.6-inch and 17-inch displays could fit in a smaller chassis — so small, in fact, that Dell claims these are the smallest laptops in their class. The company claims that the XPS 17 is smaller than roughly half the 15-inch laptops available today, which should make it attractive to users who want a 17-inch laptop but were intimidated by the size.
