Dell unveils exciting new lineup running Microsoft Windows 8
At the media appreciation night held in Makati City, Dell Philippines its new portable computing lineup which touts features that take advantage of recent advances in technology. Powered by Microsoft Windows 8, these are the new Dell Latitude 10 tablet computer, Dell Latitude 6430u notebook computer, Dell OptiPlex 9010 all-in-one desktop with touch, and the Dell XPS 12 convertible tablet computer. Each of these models are tailored to suit the user’s different needs.
It is interesting to note that the mobile variants are a lot lighter and thinner while offering more batter power, which is a very important consideration for modern mobile devices. They also come with Dell Philippines on-site support, which we previously covered in the Dell XPS 12 launch. The event was hosted by Chi Bocobo. The program featured Dell executives headed by Dell Country Manager Chris Papa. Microsoft Philippines was also in attendance.
The Dell Latitude 6430u notebook is a tough, high powered notebook computer aimed at business users on-the-go. Dell crafted this machine with the knowledge that many employees do not treat their company issued machines as carefully as they would their personal units. The Dell Latitude 6430u is made to pass a broad set of the United States Military’s 810G standard tests – you know, drop tests, extreme temperatures, humidity, fungus, and rain. This is one tough baby. Prices start at US$1,508 (~61K PHP).
The Dell Latitude 10 is a 10-inch tablet PC that runs on Intel Atom 1.8GHz processor with a 64GB SSD hard drive. The 10-finger multi-touch Gorilla Glass screen is beautiful, plus the fact that it runs Windows 8 renders netbooks almost obsolete. I use the word almost because it also costs double at US$768 (~31K PHP). The only thing missing would be 3G/mobile phone capability and Windows tablets like the Latitude 10 will give mobile Android/iOS/WinMo devices a run for its money.
Of course, you all know about the Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook, the stylish convertible which we covered extensively in this blog. We have been a fan of the XPS 12 Ultrabook since it was unveiled. Running Windows 8 on 3rd Generation Intel processor, Intel HD4000 graphics and 256 GB SSD storage, this machine is a beast for such a portable device. For more details on the Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook, check out the full article.
Finally we have the Dell OptiPlex 9010, which is basically your next generation desktop. It sports a multi-touch screen and sports the highest technical specs – quad core 3.3GHz processor, up to 32GB RAM, a separate video card – everything you could look for in a high end desktop computer. Entry level models cost only 48,885 PHP.
