Dell just announced their desktop PC, laptop and monitor line-up for 2017, which includes the world’s first horizontal smart workspace with touch, totem and pen capabilities called the Dell Canvas. Other highlights include the world’s smallest 13-inch 2-in-1 laptop with InfinityEdge screen, a 32-inch 8K monitor, a sleek looking all-in-one desktop PC with high quality audio, a VR-read mobile workstation, and a wireless charging 12-inch laptop.
Dell Canvas (pictured above) presents a new category of smart workspace technology that expands creative productivity for content developers and designers. The 27-inch QHD smart workspace can be used at an angle or flat on a desk so professionals can create, communicate and express their thoughts and ideas as naturally as they do with pen on paper. For example, through the use of touch, digital pen and totems, the Dell Canvas turns drawings into part of the digital workflow and enhances collaboration. Developed in partnership with Microsoft Corp. and powered by virtually any Windows 10 device, Dell Canvas plugs seamlessly into software solutions from partners including Adobe, Autodesk, AVID, Dassault Systems, SolidWorks and Microsoft to unleash the creative genius in everyone.
Dell is adding the XPS 13 2-in-1, the world’s smallest 13-inch convertible 2-in-1 laptop. It offers a 360-degree hinge for multiple productivity and viewing options using Continuum, up to 15 hours of battery life and eye-popping clarity with a gorgeous QHD+ (5.7M pixels) InfinityEdge touch display — another first for a 2-in-1. The fan-less design keeps it silent and the quick-booting solid state drive has it up and running in seconds. And for business customers, the XPS 13 2-in-1 can be configured with 7th Gen Intel Core vPro processors and Dell BIOS and manageability software — all backed by Dell’s global ProSupport services.
Also, Dell has updated the XPS 15, the smallest 15.6-inch laptop on the planet, with 7th Gen Intel Core processors, NVIDIA Pascal architecture — GeForce GTX 100 graphics and a fingerprint reader for password-free logins via Windows Hello with the swipe of a finger.
The new XPS 27 AIO, and its Precision business sibling, crank sound to a whole new level with built-in audio quality that previously required an external sound bar. With full frequency range high-fidelity audio built in, they deliver the best sound available in an AIO with 10 speakers pumping out sound at 50W per channel thanks to the help of Jack Joseph Puig, Grammy award winning producer and director of creative innovation at Waves Audio. The viewing experience is equally impressive with a beautiful 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) edge-to-edge touch display supporting 100 percent Adobe RGB color gamut. The Precision AIO delivers more performance options with Intel Xeon processors, AMD Radeon Pro graphics capable of powering VR and outstanding reliability with ISV certifications for top programs like AVID and SolidWorks, as well as leading security and manageability software.
The Dell Precision 7720 mobile workstation is Dell’s first VR-ready mobile workstation designed specifically for VR content creation. It’s Dell’s most powerful mobile workstation, thanks to the latest 7th Gen Intel Core and Intel Xeon processors and NVIDIA Pascal Quadro professional graphics. And since it’s a mobile workstation, creators can now develop VR content from anywhere they find inspiration.
The Dell UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD 8K Monitor is the world’s first 32-inch 8K resolution display. It has more than 1 billion colors, 33.2M pixels of resolution, 100 percent Adobe RGB and sRGB color gamut and an unprecedented 280 ppi — which is four times more content than Ultra HD 4K resolution and 16 times more content than Full HD. Monitors offering this extreme level of resolution and Dell PremierColor clarity and gradation are important in commercial fields where in-depth image zooming is critical—such as photo and video editing, medicine and diagnostic research, and oil and gas exploration — all among the early adopters of this technology. Plus its near borderless display gives customers 32 inches of screen real estate in a highly compact package.
Additionally, Dell is announcing several new monitors with its new HDR feature to enhance the visual experience through a wider range of colors for exceptionally vivid images, higher clarity with visibly vibrant textures and increased contrast to capture a multitude of natural shades and hues. New monitors with the HDR feature include: the Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor with a contemporary design, the world’s thinnest profile in its class, InfinityEdge display, Quad HD technology and USB Type-C connectivity as well as the Dell 24 and 27 InfinityEdge Monitors, which also feature dual 6W external speakers professionally tuned by award-winning Waves Maxx Audio.
Wireless connectivity has been widespread in notebooks for years, but there’s one wire that has always remained in the equation—the power cord. Dell will deliver a true wireless experience by incorporating WiTricity magnetic resonance wireless charging technology in the 12-inch Latitude 7285 2-in-1 available later this year. When combined with a charging mat and WiGig wireless dock, users can take the Latitude 2-in-1 with them without disengaging any wires or a physical dock. And when they return to their desk and set the 2-in-1 on the charging mat, it begins charging, automatically reconnects to the WiGig dock and content appears on the external display. More information about the Latitude 7285 2-in-1 and wireless charging will follow at Dell EMC World in May 2017.
Dell’s line of XPS, Inspiron and Alienware consumer devices and OptiPlex, Latitude and Precision commercial products get upgraded with 7th Gen Intel Core processors, USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity options and updated professional graphics from NVIDIA and AMD. Dell is also refreshing its monitor lineup, continuing its global leadership in displays.
Products built for business also feature 7th Gen Intel Core vPro and Xeon processors and new ultrathin notebook and 2-in-1 designs—reflecting customer demands for thin and light professional products that don’t compromise on productivity, security and manageability. For example, Dell expands its leadership in workstations with the Precision 5520, the world’s lightest 15-inch mobile workstation and a darling among creative professionals. The Latitude 7000 Series Ultrabooks and an award-winning 12-inch Latitude 5000 Series 2-in-1 are also added to the lineup. This detachable 2-in-1 weighs less than 2lbs, features a unique auto-deploy kickstand that extends up to 150 degrees for multiple viewing angles and has multiple connectivity options.
For desktop lovers looking for space-saving designs, Dell has redefined the desktop experience with the new OptiPlex 5250 AIO and an updated line of OptiPlex small and micro form factor desktops. These sleek products provide full desktop performance and productivity in compact chassis that can be mounted behind corresponding displays with our innovative AIO stands or under a table to free up desk space. Perfect for pairing with a desktop or laptop, new monitors also include the Dell 24 Monitor for Video Conferencing, which features a two megapixel Full HD IR camera with privacy shutter, noise-canceling microphone and dual 5W speakers built in, and the Dell 24 Touch Monitor.
