Addressing the next-generation of computing needs for consumers and commercial customers, Dell has announced performance enhancements to its flagship lineup of OptiPlex and XPS laptops and desktops.

These award-winning product families demonstrate Dell’s commitment to deliver the best computing experience with improved design and touch computing performance, as well as advanced security and manageability for the commercial PCs.

“We have taken outstanding products and made them even better with improved performance, sleek design and state-of-the-art security and management capabilities,” says Boitumelo Kgnore, Dell South Africa client product marketing manager.
“We’re constantly listening to customers and improving our leading edge products based upon their input. Through enhanced components and engineering, we’re providing customers with a great computing experience and helping them realise the efficiency and productivity benefits provided through improved performance.”

New Dell XPS systems feature performance and expandability enhancements over the previous generation for customers that demand the latest high-performance technology. The new XPS 27 All-in-One PC delivers one of the world’s most vibrant touchscreen AIO experience with an incredibly vivid Adobe RGB Quad HD display. Now customers can design, create or enjoy multimedia with brighter, truer colors.

For consumers seeking a versatile desktop with advanced performance, the XPS 8700 is built with speed, expandability and storage in mind. In addition, the award-winning XPS 12 convertible laptop is now designed to be faster and more efficient than before.

With 63% overall performance improvement, the XPS 12 is 1,6 times faster, and now has up to eight hours and 43 minutes of battery life – over two hours more than the previous generation.

The OptiPlex 9020 is the world’s most manageable Intel vPro enabled desktop and is Dell’s most powerful commercial desktop to date. Available in four form factors, including a versatile, compact AIO, it fits seamlessly into any office environment providing a new level of control and manageability paired with leading-edge reliability and security.

Additionally, the new OptiPlex 9020 can be cloud enabled with the Dell Cloud Desktop feature, a new fully incorporated desktop and application virtualisation technology powered by Dell Wyse WSM.

With Dell Cloud Desktops configured to be stateless and diskless, the capabilities of the OptiPlex 9020 can be shared to a number of virtual users in an extremely secure environment with centralised management and storage, while delivering the same look, performance, feel and function of a traditional desktop with an OS.

All of the PCs announced today are based on 4th generation Intel Core processors.
