Dell has recently announced a wide range of laptops, however, the most interesting one has to its new content creator-oriented Inspiron 16 Plus. Powered by power Intel Tiger Lake-H processors and new NVIDIA Ampere dGPU solutions, these laptops give great display and thermals for creators to get the max out of it.
First off, we have a 16-inch 3K (3072 x 1920) display with Dell’s much-loved 16:10 aspect ratio. This helps to enlarge the active area of the screen by 11% while only increasing the dimension of the device 5% compared to last-gen.
You have a high-quality display that offers a 10-bit color depth, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 100% sRGB color coverage, and 300 nits of peak brightness.

However, Dell was not specific about the CPU, but you can safely expect the Core i7 variant to be included. Then you have the option of opting for a powerful discrete GPU in the form of a GeForce RTX 3060.
On the thermal front, you have 3 fans and 5 heat pipes of the RTX 3060 variant while all other configurations come with 2 fans and 3 heat pipes while all configurations featuring 4 vents. For RAM, you can upgrade up to 32 GB DDR4-3200 RAM, however, you have only one M.2 PCIe NVMe slot that supports up to 2 TB capacities.
On the ports & connectivity front you have 1 x Thunderbolt 4 and 2 x USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 connectors, HDMI 2.0b video output, SD card reader, and a headphone jack. You do get Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and an optional fingerprint reader, whereas you have an HD webcam with a shutter slider.
