Do you think we'll get a fall refresh of XPS17?

I'm fairly certain I'm going to buy XPS17 but with Intel, nvidia, and usb4 teasing it's one of those years with lots of reasons to wait

Do you think we'll get a refresh in the fall?

I was interested in the Lenovo X1 extreme gen3 later this year, but now that this is out, I think I might get this next. Especially since they recently increased the travel distance of the keyboard, it's still not thinkpad keyboard worthy, but it might just be good enough while everything else about this machine will make up for the difference. This XPS 17 looks like a dream machine.

I'm hoping that nvidia parts will be drop in, and that Intel will make platform savings worthwhile for Dell.

Lots of rumors of an 11 gen tiger lake 8c chip but not until spring. I'd expect a refresh then, and probably not before.

Intel said we would get like 100 laptops by the end of the year.
If it's drop in I don't expect Dell to give up the crown

Dell is not going to use Tiger Lake U (low power) processors in the XPS 17. Intel is planning to launch the more powerful Tiger Lake H series of processors in Q1 of next year. That's when Dell might refresh the line.
