Dell XPS 17 (9720) review: Almost all the right improvements


The Dell XPS 17 9720 retains all the best qualities of its predecessor while upgrading to 12th-gen Intel CPUs. It's the 17-inch laptop to beat.

Outstanding build quality Streamlined good looks Thin and light Excellent productivity and creative performance Solid midrange gaming performance Superior IPS display Great keyboard and touchpad

Expensive Limited collection of ports Some thermal throttling

“The Dell XPS 17 9720 is fast, thin and light, and lasts surprisingly long on a charge. Toss in a superior IPS display and you have a highly portable creative workstation.”

Dell XPS 17 (9720) Review


Maintains earlier version's slim, classy design ; Beautiful 4K touch-display option ; Strong overall performance with new 12th Gen Intel CPU ; Graphics options up to GeForce RTX 3060 ; Four Thunderbolt 4 ports

Pricey as configured ; No OLED screen option ; Subpar 720p webcam is disappointing for the price ; USB-C ports only

The updated 2022 Dell XPS 17 adds Intel’s latest 12th Gen "Alder Lake" CPUs to its winning design, amping up this already impressive laptop. It remains one of our top picks among 17-inchers.

Dell XPS 17 (2021)


Is the latest iteration of the Dell XPS 17 the best option for demanding creatives, and is it better than the Apple MacBook Pro 16?

Great-looking, sturdy chassis ; Fantastic high-resolution touchscreen ; Good everyday creative power ; A crisp, comfortable keyboard

Other processors are faster ; Not the best port selection ; Expensive ; Middling battery life

As usual, the Dell XPS 17 looks superb, and it has a sensational display, good keyboard and plenty of power. Dell could certainly have gone further with the design, though, and you’ll find some missing features – and a hefty bill if you want beefier...

Dell XPS 17 9720 (2022) Review: Creative, With a Side of Gaming


The big screen, powerful hardware and minimalist design recall the best parts of Apple's old 17-inch old MacBook Pro.

Big, high-res screen ; Enough graphics power for creative and mainstream gaming ; Slim design for such a large laptop

Low-res webcam ; Minimal ports
