The new releases follow a number of other Dell products released in the past couple of months, including the Dell G Series gaming computers in June and the XPS 15 and XPS 17 laptops in May. 

While the XPS 15 laptop and Dell 5G Gaming Desktop were both announced previously, Dell confirmed availability and pricing on Thursday. The XPS 15 laptop is now available in the US, Canada, and across participating European and Asian countries, starting at $1,300. The Dell G5 Gaming Desktop is available now in the US and Canada beginning at $700, according to a blog post. 

Building upon its previous announcement of the XPS 15 laptop, Dell introduced a new color variant. This summer, for an additional $50 across select configurations, the device will also be available in frost machined aluminum with an arctic white woven glass palm rest.

However, the brand new desktop and monitors are particularly intriguing. Here are details into those latest releases, according to the blog post and fact sheets:
