> Dell zeroes on workforce productivity in its new releases of devices in the Vostro, Latitude and Precision series
Generation Core i5 processor, offering up to 16GB memory, a discrete graphics processing unit (GPU) with 4GB worth of GDDR5 video memory, and with a choice of a 1TB hard disk drive (HDD), 256GB solid state drive (SSD), or an optional dual HDD and SSD drive. For those who want something a little more affordable, there’s the Vostro 14 3000 ( right). Like the Vostro 14 5000, it is also a 14in laptop that looks good and portable.
The main difference is in its hardware. It uses Intel’s 7th Generation Core i3 processor, and can also be equipped with a HDD of up to 1TB, and has multiple graphics options which include a discrete GPU with 2GB worth of GDDR5 memory.
To add a little versatility to the mix, Dell also has the Latitude 13 3000 2-in-1 ( far left), which is a device that can work in four modes – laptop, tent, stand and tablet.
It is also incredibly sleek due to its brushed aluminium design. This
convertible is equipped with a 13.3in Full HD Truelife LED-Backlit touch display, Intel’s 6th Generation Core i5 processor, and can be fitted with up to 16GB worth of DDR4 RAM, Intel HD Graphics 520 and an SSD of up to 512GB. Last but not least, Dell also unveiled the latest Precision Tower 5810, 7810 and 7910 workstations that come with Virtual Reality-ready solutions, providing users with an optimal virtual reality (VR) experience, be it for consuming or creating VR content. These refreshed desktops also now come with new Intel Broadwell EP Processors that have better performance when it comes to professional modelling, analysis and calculations. Other upgrades include the latest professional graphics technology from AMD and Nvidia, and Dell Precision Ultra-Speed PCIe drives that are four times faster than standard storage solutions and can be fitted with up to 1TB of DDR4 memory. When it comes to pricing, the Vostro 14 5000 comes in at a starting price of RM2,630, the Vostro 14 3000 is priced at RM2,194, and the Latitude 13 3000 2-in-1 is RM3,499. Meanwhile, the retail price for the ‘VR Ready’ Precision Towers starts at RM5,483 (not including VR solution). For more, visit the Dell Malaysia website.
