A good writer can order more than 70 words per minute without facing any issues. The keyboard deck is quite firm, durable, and long-lasting. Amazingly, the Dell XPS 17 is outfitted with a 3.5 x 6-inch touchpad which has magnificent palm repudiation.

For this purpose, the Dell company introduced the base model of this laptop with a 4 GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q integrated graphics card. The laptop has integrated UHD graphics as well for such times where the users aren’t doing any photo or video editing.

Another interesting fact about Dell XPS 17 in its extended version. The extended model has introduced GDDR 6 NVIDIA GeForce 2060 GPU with Max-Q design.

I enjoyed all the graphic features of this machine on Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Corel Draw. This product can produce up to 110 frames-per-second at 3840 x 2400, based on my experience.
