And now that it’s here, we get our first tryst with devices like XPS 13 ultrabook, something which can give the MacBook a tough fight; and then, there is Venue 8 7000 Android-powered tablet which matches up to levels of Samsung and Apple.
It’s not easy to nominate Dell’s name when the competition is spread across highly competitive yet monopolized high-end ultrabook segment, but XPS 13 is no slouch itself. First thing that you’ll notice with the XPS 13 is the apparent size differentiation, wherein they have managed to fit a 13-inch display (with almost zero bezels) on 11.6-inch device.
That’s not all; XPS 13 gets a 13.3-inch display with 3200x1800p resolution but misses out on meaningful graphics unit to support this sort of power. Under the hood, you get variants powered by 5th gen Core i3, i5 or even the i7 unit with option of 4GB/8GB RAM paired along. Weighing at just over 1.3 Kgs, XPS 13 has all the attributes to become a crowd favorite. Besides, the 12-hours battery life is just another sweetener to device. This device is now available across the country at a starting price of Rs 70,990.
Next on Dell’s agenda has been the much-vaunted and supposedly world’s slimmest tablet Venue 8 7000, which was announced earlier this year. Available from next month for Rs 34,990, the slate is vying for space in the Samsung-Apple arena that gets as tough as possible.
Specs-wise, the Venue 8 7000 Tablet comes with a 8.4-inch 2560x1600p display running on Android 5.0 Lollipop version and packs an Intel Atom quad-core CPU with 2GB RAM. It offers storage support up to 512GB via microSD slot. The tablet, which weighs 308 grams, is also one of the first to sport the Intel RealSense camera which has been pegged to deliver ultra-detailed images. With 5900mAh battery, it would be hard to suggest the life of device when it’s fully charged.
In addition to these, Dell has also announced new range of Inspiron notebooks and 2-in-1 convertible among others.
