Additionally, the company brought the Vostro 13 5000 and Vostro 15 7000 specifically for enterprise customers.
Starting with the new Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, the new device comes with an InfinityEdge display that is in 16:10 format and offers an edge-to-edge screen viewing experience. There are options to pick full-HD+ and UHD+ panels, where the top-end models have HDR400 certification and Dolby Vision. Dell has also provided an Eyesafe display technology to reduce potentially harmful blue light emissions to some extent.
Unlike the fanless design on previous XPS 13 models, the new XPS 13 2-in-1 has an actively cooled 15W design that is touted to increase the performance by 2.5 times over the previous generation. There is also a re-engineered thermal design that enables an 8 percent thinner build than the previous XPS 13 model. Moreover, the machine carries Intel's 10th generation Core processor with Intel Dynamic Tuning technology.
Dell has provided an edge-to-edge MagLev keyboard, larger touchpad than the previous generation, and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The new XPS 13 2-in-1 also has premium materials, including CNC machined aluminium with high polished diamond cut sidewalls, as well as black carbon fiber or arctic white woven glass fibre palm rests.
If you're impressed by the latest XPS 13 2-in-1, Dell has brought the new XPS 15 as its flagship notebook with a compact presence. The machine features UltraSharp 4K UHD (3840x2160 pixels) InfinityEdge 15.6-inch display with optional touch support.

In terms of its build, the new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is designed with magnesium alloy and includes new Adaptive Thermals that are claimed to adjust the thermal profiles on the basis of whether the laptop is on a lap or desk. Dell has also provided dual heat pipes, fans, and a drop hinge design. Moreover, the power button on the new Inspiron 15 7000 is available within the keyboard and fingerprint reader.
Dell has also introduced the new Inspiron 13 5000 notebook that has a 13-inch display, aluminium-made body with diamond cut edges around the touchpad, and contemporary colours - namely Platinum Silver and Iced Lilac.
