The Sun (Malaysia) - - TECH TODAY -

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.
