Written By published August 28, 2018

This week at IFA, Dell introduced several new devices, including the Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1s, 7000 2-in-1 laptops, the Vostro 14 and 15 5000 and premium 27 USB-C ultrathin displays and entry-level SE monitors.

It also refreshed its XPS line with updates, including Intel 8th generation processors with the XPS 13 2-in-1 and a new XPS 13 i3 configuration.

Select XPS and Inspiron products provide a Cinematic experience at your fingertips with incredible color, streaming and sound.

All of the models use Modern Standby for instant-on performance, which means you can resume and log in with just one touch using Windows Hello and the optional SSO fingerprint reader on the power button.

With far-field Cortana functionality, on select XPS and Inspiron 2-in-1s, you can work with your digital assistant from across the room.

The new Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1 (5482) is ready for anything, with 8th generation Intel Core processors, up to 16GB of DDR4 memory and high-end storage options such as PCIe NVMe SSDs, dual drive configurations and/or Intel Optane Memory.

A USB Type-C port supports DisplayPort and Power Delivery, meaning that the port can be used to hook up to external monitors, charge the laptop, and transfer data – all through the same port.

It’s also got a smaller footprint and sleek look thanks to a narrow border that keeps the focus on the IPS, Active Pen compatible touch screen. A redesigned thermal flow moves hot air out through hidden vents in the hinges and away from you and the system. You’ll also find the palm rest is made of cool aluminum, with an available upgraded brushed finish with diamond cut edges.

Available starting at $599.99.

A new, miniaturized, four-element lens webcam offers improved performance and utilizes Temporal Noise Reduction that greatly increases image quality in low light.

These also have 8th generation Intel Core processors and up to 16GB of DDR4 memory, but they come standard with PCIe NVMe SSDs.

The 17 7000 2-in-1, which has a 17.3-inch FHD IPS touch screen, also comes standard with the NVIDIA GeForce MX150 for an added boost in graphical performance and a numerical pad for easy number crunching.

Also safeguard your business with hardware TPM (Trusted Platform Module) 2.0, which provides commercial-grade protection and storage for encryption keys to verify your device. Together with BitLocker, you can configure your security settings.

These laptops also reduce power consumption by automatically switching the system to battery power during certain times of the day, even if the system is plugged into a direct power source, through Peak Shift.
