Dell announced at the Dell Future Workplace event a new lineup of commercial devices powered by the latest 7th Gen Intel Core processors.

Designed with the future workforce in mind, Dell’s line of OptiPlex, Latitude and Precision commercial products have been upgraded with the 7th Gen Intel Core processors, USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity options and professional graphics from NVIDIA and AMD.

“At Dell, we understand that the workforce of today is highly mobile and interconnected. We’re constantly striving to deliver the best user experience and performance for all of our customers – no matter which product line they choose," said Rakesh Mandal, Director & GM, Client Solutions, South Asia and Korea, Dell.

“With our latest line of commercial products, we’re helping people collaborate more seamlessly, be more productive and create new immersive experiences at the workplace.”

The 12" Latitude 5285 2-in-1 weighs under 1kg and features a unique auto-deploy kickstand that extends up to 150 degrees for multiple viewing angles.

The desktop experience has been updated with new OptiPlex small and micro form factor desktops. These products provide full desktop performance and productivity in compact chassis that can be mounted behind corresponding displays with all in one (AIO) stands or under a table to free up desk space.

What began as the Dell smart desk concept in 2014 has evolved into the Dell Canvas—a new category of smart workspace technology that expands creative productivity for content developers and designers. The 27" QHD smart workspace can be used at an angle or flat on a desk so professionals can create, communicate and express their thoughts and ideas as naturally as they do with pen on paper. For example, through the use of touch, digital pen and totems*, the Dell Canvas turns drawings into part of the digital workflow. Developed in partnership with Microsoft and powered by virtually any Windows 10 device, Dell Canvas plugs seamlessly into software solutions from partners including Adobe, Autodesk, AVID, Dassault Systems, SolidWorks and Microsoft.

Launched in Singapore earlier this March, the world’s smallest 13" 2-in-11 offers a 360-degree hinge for multiple productivity and viewing options using Continuum, up to 15 hours of battery life2 and clarity from a QHD+ (5.7M million pixels) InfinityEdge touch display—another first for a 2-in-1.

The fan-less design keeps it silent and the quick-booting solid state drive has it up and running in seconds. And for working professionals, the XPS 13 2-in-1 functions as a business laptop with security features and can be configured with 7th Gen Intel Core vPro processors, Dell BIOS and manageability software—all backed by Dell’s global ProSupport services.

Some AIO PCs on the market today treat the audio experience as an afterthought. Co-created with Jack Joseph Puig, Grammy award-winning producer and Director of creative innovation at Waves Audio, the new Precision 5720 AIO has full frequency range high-fidelity audio built in, to delivers the best sound available in an AIO with 10 speakers pumping out sound at 50W per channel.

The viewing experience features a 4K Ultra HD (3,840 x 2,160) edge-to-edge touch display supporting 100% Adobe RGB colour gamut. The Precision 5720 AIO delivers more performance options with Intel Xeon processors, AMD Radeon Pro graphics capable of powering virtual reality (VR) and outstanding reliability with independent software vendor (ISV) certifications for top programs like AVID and SolidWorks, as well as leading security and manageability software.


All products are available through Dell and its authorised partners.
