Recently, I was introduced to Dell’s newest additions to their laptop offerings – the award-winning powerhouse XPS 15 laptop and the Inspiron 11 3000 family.
Let’s take them one at a time.
The Dell XPS 15
The XPS 13-inch laptop was so successful that it encouraged Dell to come out with the 15-inch laptop that has probably the smallest footprint in the 15-inch laptop range across models. That is because of the XPS 15’s Infinity Edge, virtually borderless, display. By maximizing screen almost to the edge, the XPS 15 body is smaller than most 15-inched models in this category. Yes it’s so thin at 11-17mm and lightweight at 1.78kg! That’s because XPS laptops’ top cover and base are precision cut from a single block of aluminum. A carbon fiber palm rest gives one that classy feel that is cooler to the touch.
The XPS 15 comes with the following specs:
* A 6th generation Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad Core processor
* NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics (2GB GDDR5)
* 8GB Dual Channel DDR4 2133MHz memory
* 256GB solid state drive
* Thunderbolt 3 (enables up to 8x the transfer speed of USB 3.0)
* Up to 17 hours of battery life on a single charge
For users whose work demands powerful graphics and processor-intensive features, the XPS 15 is it.
The XPS 15 retails currently at PhP 84,990 and is available at all Dell Concept Stores. It comes bundled with Windows 10.
The Inspiron 11 3000 Series
Very affordable at PhP 13,990 is the 11-inch Dell Inspiron 11 3000. At that price, most students and budget-conscious people will be able to afford a laptop that handles most office and school requirements.
The Inspiron 11 3000 series comes in Bali Blue, Tango Red, and Alpine White (not shown above). Some of its specs include:
* Anti-glare LED-backlit display
* 500 GB 5400 rpm hard drive
* Intel Celeron or Intel Pentium processor
* 2 GB memory (can be upgraded to 4 GB)
* Battery life up to 10 hours
The Inspiron 11 3000 series laptops are available at all Dell Concept Stores and come bundled with Windows 10.
