Both laptops are designed for productivity related tasks with the primary difference being that the D 16 has a full sized keyboard with a numeric keypad, a non-touch display and a more affordable price point in general while the 16s has a touch capable display, a smaller keyboard and an enviable Intel Evo certification.

Other mod-cons include fast WiFi 6, a fingerprint reader that doubles as a power button, a full sized keyboard with a numeric keypad that makes it great for number crunchers and a 1080P camera for video calls.
