Dell has announced a number of updates to its machines, including its mid-range of Inspiron laptops and all-in-one PCs at the Computex 2019. The company has also announced new additions to its 13-inch 5000 and 15-inch 7000-series models.
Dell has announced the XPS 13 2-in-1 laptops which will pack Intel’s 10nm, 10-series processors. Users will get an option of a dual-core Core i3-1005 G1, a quad-core i5-1035 G1, or a quad-core i7-1065 G6 CPU. The devices can be paired up with up to 32GB of DDR4 memory, and a terabyte of SSD storage. Users also have a choice of displays between a 1080p model with 500 nits of brightness and a 1,800:1 contrast ratio, as well as a 4K panel which supports HDR, a brightness of 500 nits, and a 1,500:1 contrast ratio.
The technology giant announced that the hardware will increase performance up to 2.5 times over the last generation Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. The display size has also increased by seven per cent, and the size of the laptop has also been cut down by eight per cent, DELL has improved the thermal management to create a cooler-operating system and the device’s battery life will now last as long as 16 hours, Dell claims.
The company’s latest models focused on "Adaptive Thermals," which is a series of algorithms that was first showcased on the Inspiron 7000 back at CES 2019. It used the machine's sensors to determine where it is in the world, and it will also be able to tell the difference between being on a table or on your lap and adjust the cooling accordingly.
Dell has not announced the launch of the new XPS 13 2-in-1, however, stated that the price will start at $1,000.
