Dell has launched its new Windows 8 range in Malaysia, which includes touch-enabled devices such as the convertible XPS 12, to offer a more intuitive computing experience, said the computer firm.
Speaking on 6 November 2012, Dell Sales Malaysia general manager, consumer business, Khoo Teng Guan, said that Dell is making available three new PCs in its portfolio: the XPS 12, XPS One 27 and Inspiron One 23. Further, Dell is also offering Windows 8 as an option on its current XPS and Inspiron brands.
"Dell and Microsoft have strived to make technology more accessible and intuitive for more than two decades and the introduction of new Dell PCs and Windows 8 software is another important milestone in this journey," said Khoo. "Dell remains on the forefront of designing the industry's best range of PCs to meet the diverse needs of its customers - whether businesses concerned with security and manageability or tech-savvy consumers interested in a new device for both personal and business use. Dell's exciting new XPS product portfolio addresses this diverse set of needs and is a key catalyst in making exciting new touch-based computing experiences a reality."
He said each product in the Dell XPS portfolio "combined both the design desired by consumers and the security and manageability features required by businesses" and would help to meet the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend.
"[For instance,] the XPS 12 is two devices in one: a fully-featured, full-powered laptop that easily becomes a fully-featured touch-powered tablet," said Khoo. "The unique flip hinge touchscreen display is elegant and innovative and easily transitions between laptop and tablet mode with a simple flip. When in tablet mode, the display completely covers the keyboard, protecting it from dirt and spills. The full HD display provides 90 percent more pixels than a standard HD display for an exceptionally crisp reading and viewing experience."
The award-winning XPS One 27 All-in-One is designed for creative enthusiasts with a super high resolution display and performance graphics for multimedia creation and entertainment," he said. "The gorgeous, space-saving design features a 27-inch Wide Quad HD Display, which has 78 percent more pixels than a full HD display, and an articulating stand that tilts the display to a 60-degree angle, providing additional options when using the touchscreen interface. Whether one is designing a digital masterpiece or experiencing HD entertainment, the XPS One 27 delivers the power, sound, graphics and pixels for a brilliant multimedia experience."
