Inspiron 14 Plus has the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, while the Inspiron 16 Plus offers the optional higher-end NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060, making it ideal for photo and video editing. The latter will also let users take advantage of different NVIDIA Studio tools, such as Broadcast and Canvas apps.
As for the storage, both get up to 2TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD. The RAM capacity of the two laptops, on the other hand, has a big difference. The bigger laptop gets up to 64GB DDR5, while the Inspiron 14 Plus has 40GB DDR5.

In particular, Inspiron 16 Plus has a 16-inch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio active area and a 3k resolution.
Other details worth mentioning about these two new laptops are their built-in FHD webcam with temporal noise reduction and wide dynamic range, dual microphones with echo cancellation and AI-based noise reduction, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, and ComfortView Plus hardware.
