Dell’s 2024 lineup, including the new XPS 14 and XPS 16, has leaked online

A new leak shows us that it is Dell 2024 line-up ready for the traditional CES in Las Vegas, including the all-new XPS 14 and 16 models, as well as new Alienware laptopove.

As we approach the end of the year, CES 2024 is getting closer, and with it comes a ton of new information about premium laptops from all PC manufacturers. However, Dell experienced a leak of its CES laptop lineup a little earlier, giving us a glimpse of what the company has planned for the coming year when it comes to their flagship products. Most notably, the XPS line is experiencing significant changes after several years of stagnation, with the introduction of the XPS 14 and XPS 16.

Dell Laptop Lineup for 2024 – XPS 13, 14 and 16

First, we have before us the new XPS family, Dell's most famous product line. Leaks coming our way od Windows Report-a, indicates that the XPS 13 will receive a “mild refresh”, keeping the same design as the previous model. It should be noted that XPS 13 it wasn't updated for 2023 because Intel didn't produce a 9W processor to replace the one used in the 2022 model, so even a simple improvement in specs is good news.

Now, when it comes to Dell's 2024 lineup, we're going to pay attention to some new models that we didn't expect. The report, somewhat strangely, indicates that this is some sort of refresh of an existing product, although as far as we know, there has been no Dell XPS 14 model until now. The laptop looks similar to the XPS 13 Plus, but this new model is said to feature the latest Intel processors and Nvidia GPUs, something you could previously get with the XPS 15.

Finally, there's the XPS 16, another brand new member of the lineup, which appears to replace the XPS 17 of previous years. All that is mentioned is that this model will feature the upcoming Intel Core Ultra processors and Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 series graphics, making it the most powerful of all in the XPS family.

The Dell XPS 14 and XPS 16 seem to follow a very similar design language, finally modernizing the look of Dell's larger laptops. Although the company introduced the all-new XPS 13 and 13 Plus in 2021, the XPS 15 and 17 have looked the same for several generations, so this is a clear change of pace. Sorry, design.

Alienware gaming laptops get a refresh in the form of Intel Core Ultra H processors and Nvidia graphics

Dell's 2024 lineup also includes new ones Alienware gaming laptops, which are mostly refreshments. The new series includes the Alienware m16 R2, m18 R2 and x16 R2, all successors to laptops launched in 2023.

The new 16-inch models will feature Intel Core Ultra H processors and Nvidia graphics, as you'd expect from them, although it looks like the Alienware m18 R2 will use processors that don't carry the new Core Ultra branding.

It is likely that the company will use Intel's HX-series processors, which are based on desktop parts, and therefore on the Raptor Lake Refresh, which was launched a few weeks ago. This setup does not yet use Intel's new branding.

One thing mentioned in the report is that the Alienware m16 R2 (and presumably other models as well) will have a “Stealth Mode,” which, according to the report, “seamlessly transitions from gaming to productivity.” Based on the name of the feature, it seems that this could mean slowing down the processor and GPU to keep valve noise down when the laptop is used for less demanding tasks. However, there is no clear indication in either direction.

There are also new monitors and peripherals

Finally, according to the leak, Dell's 2024 lineup will also introduce new monitors and accessories at CES 2024. We'll see the Dell UltraSharp 40 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor, a “super ultrawide” monitor with a 40-inch screen and 32:9 aspect ratio. As the name suggests, it looks like you can use the monitor as a hub for peripherals connected to your PC, and there are even front-facing ports below the screen to make it easier to connect accessories.

Most of the remaining products come from Alienware, starting with the Alienware 27-inch 360Hz gaming monitora, whose name speaks volumes for what it brings. It uses a Quad HD QD-OLED panel, which means you can expect one of the best HDR experiences on the market, along with vibrant colors and true blacks. Then there's the Alienware 32 4K QD-OLED monitor.

This 32-inch panel comes with a very sharp resolution and ultrawide (21:9) aspect ratio, and also uses QD-OLED for the same premium HDR experience, including support for Dolby Vision HDR. It also supports HDMI 2.1which allows you to take advantage of all its features with the latest PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

Finally, there's the new Alienware Pro Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Bundle for gamers. The keyboard has a 75% design, while the mouse weighs only 60 grams, so this should be a reliable solution for gamers.
