Dell draws the curtain open for its new Windows 10 products and the PC.com team gets a chance to take a look at them firsthand today.
Themed “The Incredible,” the showcase featured a slew of devices armed with the 6th Gen Intel processors, Skylake, and of course the Windows 10. Dell has collaborated with Intel and Microsoft to bring the best of Windows 10 to its users.
Jarebb Chua, Country Manager, Consumer Business of Dell Singapore and Malaysia, says: “Dell is among the first OEMs to partner with Intel and Microsoft to bring customers the latest industry designs and technologies.”
Sumner Lemon, Country Manager at Intel Malaysia and Singapore adds: “From desktops to personal computers and 2-in-1s, the 6th Gen Intel Core Processor has enabled manufacturers to create the thinnest, lightest and sleekest designs ever.”
The devices unveiled today are the XPS 15 and 13, an expanded Inspiron series and the new Vostro 14 5000 Series.
The XPS 15 is probably the highlight of the day with its 15″ virtually borderless InfinityEdge display. Dell uses the same innovative display design on the award-winning XPS 13 to squeeze in 15.6″ display of the XPS 15 into a form closer to the size of a 14″ laptop. You can upgrade, depending on your budget, and equip your PC with UltraSharp 4K Ultra HD that gives an incredible 8 million pixels at 282 ppi. On top of that, it is 11-17mm thin and can weigh as light as under 4 pounds (1 pound = … gram).
Both XPS 15 and 13 feature carbon fibre and machined aluminium to give a premium and ultralight construction and you can get it with the Corning Gorilla Glass NBT options if you buy the laptop with touch display.
Among the expanded Inspiron series, Dell endows the Inspiron 24 7000 Series All-in-One with a 3D camera, Windows Hello and Intel RealSense technology to give buyers an immersive and intuitive experience using the laptop. The device also has an articulated stand, which allows the screen to be tilted 65 degrees or even laid flat according to your viewing preference.
Furthermore, the Inspiron series includes a 2-in-1 device named Inspiron 15 7000, which displays a new design for hybrid laptops. It has curved edges, a metal palm rest and a diamond cut touch pad. You can rotate it into a tablet, laptop, tent mode and stand mode. The device also combines beauty and strength with its brushed aluminium body and remarkable battery life.
Dell seems to be set on catering to every consumer market with its latest creations. Gamers are not missing out because Dell’s Inspiron 15 7000 performance notebook is designed with gamers and young people in mind. Get first rate gaming exploits with 4GB GDDR5 performance class discrete graphics from NVIDIA and a 4K UHD touch option. It will give users multi-usage high performance laptop for school work, multimedia and gaming needs at just the right price of RM3,999, available from mid-October.
Another addition to the Dell family is the Vostro 5000 Series notebook, which has 14″, 19mm thin display for working professionals, who look for fast processing power and no-nonsense business features to get their work done. You can get maximum productivity out of the device with nine hours of battery life. If you want richer graphics applications or uninterrupted multi-tasking, you can opt for built-in discrete graphics from NVIDIA with up to 2GB memory and up to 8GB of high-speed RAM.
We can expect more enhancements from device manufacturers to complement the new Windows 10, so that users can take full advantage of the new software. For now, Dell seems to be ahead of the game with the oodles of new devices it has just launched.
