Dell was quiet on dates and availability for their refreshed XPS 15 (9560) with GTX 1050 video card and 7th Generation Intel 'Kaby Lake' processor. We did hear a vague "by the end of the month" when we spoke with them at CES, but that is now getting clearer as their site is now taking orders.
So far, just two variants are being offered with the non-touch (Full HD) and touch (4K UHD) both with Core i7 processors. Users can configure the storage a bit, but not yet with the more affordable rapid-hybrid storage system.
Starting at $2,249 you can get a Core i7, GTX 1050, 1TB SSD, 16GB of RAM, and 4K display. For $1,749 that drops to a 512GB SSD with the Full HD display. If ordered today, those devices should ship within 16-20 days according to Dell. However, there could be some delays as production comes online.
Many more SKUs are expected in the coming weeks bringing the bottom price down to $999 for the Core i3 version with hybrid storage. Additionally, the Microsoft Store will likely carry two versions of the laptop at a later time in addition to Best Buy.
Update: Dell has updated their buy page now with all SKUs and configuration options!
For those outside the US, you can also order the new XPS 15 starting in about two weeks.
We'll be reviewing the new XPS 15 (9560) in the coming weeks when Dell makes the device available to reviewers. For now, you can read our full write-up on what's new with this latest iteration on my favorite 15-inch laptop.
Thanks, Tom O., for the tip!
