Dell is now offering new XPS 15 and XPS 17 series laptops with Intel's Sandy Bridge processors. These systems offer a chiclet keyboard design, discrete graphics from NVIDIA with Optimus support, Full HD screen options, optional 3D support (only for the XPS 17) and several other novelties.

The XPS 15 starts at $1,049.99 for a system with the Intel Core i7-2620M (2.7GHz), NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M graphics, 4GB DDR3, a 500GB HDD, and a 720p WLED-backlit screen, while the XPS 17 starts at $899.99 with the Intel Core i5-2410M (2.3GHz), NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, and a 900p LED-backlit screen.
