New Dell Precision, Inspiron, XPS products coming soon
Dell announced the upcoming launch of new Dell Precision, Inspiron and XPS products. These include the Precision 5000, Precision 7540, Precision 7740, XPS 13, XPS 15 and new Inspiron PCs.
Dell has announced its new mobile workstations -- Dell Precision 5000, 7540 and 7740 -- and its new additions to the XPS line -- XPS 13 2-in-1 and XPS 15 -- as well as new Inspiron PCs.
Dell Precision workstations are independent software vendor certified and equipped with Dell Precision Optimizer software, which automatically tailors the system's settings to get the best software performance from the workstation.
The new XPS and Inspiron products are a result of improvements and details consumers have asked for, Dell claims.

The 5540 has up to 4 TB of storage and up to 64 GB of memory. According to Dell, this was to enable users to access, transfer and store large 3D, video and multimedia files.

XPS 13 2-in-1
The XPS 13 has an InfinityEdge display in a 16:10 format, offering an edge-to-edge screen and a 7% larger viewing experience. Dell's smallest laptop camera is located at the top bezel, a change Dell claims was among its most requested. The new display has full high-definition (FHD) plus and UHD+ options, as well as an HDR 400-certified UHD+ panel and Dolby Vision.
Additionally, the XPS 13 has added Eyesafe, a display option that helps reduce potentially harmful blue light emissions. However, Dell claims this will not impact the color gamut performance.
The XPS 13 has an actively cooled 15-watt design for up to 2.5 times more performance than the previous generation, according to Dell. The laptop is also Dell's first that uses Intel's 10th Gen Intel Core processors and features adaptive performance based on the latest Intel Dynamic Tuning Technology.
This new generation is 8% thinner than the previous one and is built using computer numerical control (CNC) machined aluminum, black carbon fiber or arctic white woven glass fiber palm rests, and Gorilla Glass 5 for durability. Additionally, the touchpad was enlarged, and there is an edge-to-edge MagLev keyboard and a new hinge design.
The XPS 13 will be available in July, starting at $999.99.

The power button is incorporated within the keyboard and fingerprint reader to allow room for a full number pad. The new Adaptive Thermals of the Inspiron 15 detects if the laptop is on a lap or a desk and adjusts the thermal profiles accordingly.
There are dual heat pipes, fans and a drop-hinge, all features Dell says will help keep the system cool by exhausting heat out of hidden vents in the hinge.
