Dell launches new Windows 10 devices with Skylake processors

Looking to upgrade your PC? Now might be a good time

Ranging from All-in-One desktops to sleek XPS notebooks, there’s bound to be one that suits your needs if you’re currently shopping for a new PC. 

It’s a great time to upgrade too, especially since Dell’s lineup all come with Intel’s latest Skylake 6th Generation Core processors and have Windows 10 pre-installed. That means they’re not just thinner, lighter, and more powerful than before, they’re more secure too. 

We saw the new devices for ourselves at Dell’s “The Incredible” product showcase in Kuala Lumpur, and yes, there was more than one reference to the popular animated movie, with superhero imagery all around. 

For premium buyers

Dell’s top-end laptops have just gotten a refresh. From RM8499 for the XPS 15 and RM4999 for the XPS 13, you’ll need to shell out extra if you want to get your hands on these beasts built from aluminium and carbon fibre.

Compact, lightweight, and undeniably sleek, they even come with amazing displays that sure grabbed our attention. Virtually bezel-free, the new XPS laptops’ InfinityEdge displays are simply beautiful, and allow the laptop chassis to be more compact than other laptops with similar screen sizes.

The XPS 15 is definitely the more impressive of the two, utilising 4K resolution to devastating effect on its edge-to-edge screen. Of course, they're not just pretty faces – Dell’s equipped both of them with the latest graphics and processors, with improved battery life to boot.

For the home

If you’re still in the market for a desktop, you might as well make it an All-in One. They take up less space, pack decent power, and will take care of your home entertainment needs. Dell’s got their new Inspiron 24 7000 (from RM5499) and 3000 (from RM3399) Series units to pique your interest. 

Both can be tilted at different angles for you to tweak the viewing angle on their 24in Full HD wide-angle displays, and have a wide range of connectivity options for compatibility with other devices. 

The main difference between the two is that the 7000 Series has a 3D camera with RealSense technology and Windows Hello, which can be used for you to interact with the desktop in additional ways. 

For versatility

Much like other 2-in-1s in the market todayThe Dell Inspiron 13 and 15 7000 Series 2-in-1 PCs rotate between tablet, laptop, tent, and stand modes to support a variety of usage scenarios. Sporting brushed aluminium bodies, upgraded hardware, and impressive battery life, the Inspiron 15 7000 Series 2-in-1 (from RM3899) comes with a 15.6in display, while the 13 7000 2-in-1 (from RM2899) with a smaller screen debuts in a new design. 

For gamers

Alienware laptops too expensive for your tastes? The Inspiron 15 7000 Series (from RM3999) Notebook offers a great alternative, and is capable of handling spec-intensive tasks such as multimedia editing and gaming. 

That’s thanks to its 3GB of GDDR5 discrete graphics from Nvidia, optional 4K UHD touchscreen, and 74Whr battery for optimum portable gaming and productivity. 

For casual users

The Inspiron 14 and 15 5000 Series laptops (from RM2699 and RM2699 respectively) are the typical workhorses, fulfilling basic PC needs for those who just want a simple laptop. Taking the no-frills approach, they’re both equipped with high-res displays, sturdy keyboards, and exceptional battery life.
