Apple’s products are a class apart. While several companies try to compete with Apple, by launching products with similar features and capabilities, not many experience success. But someone has to keep trying! And that’s exactly what Dell is trying to do. Dell Inc, the American multinational company, is a successful brand in the laptop and personal computer market. By launching its latest range of laptops, the Dell XPS 15 is set to compete with Apple’s MacBook Pro and offers a plethora of amazing features and capabilities.
A Stunning 4K Display
XPS 15 offers a 15.6 inch display with a jaw dropping 3200 x 1880 resolution that generates a ppi of 238. The 4K Ultra HD touch screen display enables users to make the most of the numerous touch features and enhance their productivity. XPS 15 uses the latest display technology offering over 8 million pixels, which is 7 times the resolution of standard HD. The screen resolution offered is sharper and clearer than any other 15 inch laptop and has a brightness level of 436cd/m2, perfect for editing photos and for creating graphic designs. The XPS 15 also possesses a stunning 1000:1 contrast ratio that delivers rich, saturated and accurate colours in addition to 160 degree wide viewing angles. The screen is glossy and the close proximity of the glass to the underlying screen helps curb reflections.
Light Weight and Sturdy
The XPS 15 incorporates a sleek design; the laptop weighs approximately 2 kg and has a narrow width that maximizes mobility. The XPS 15 is made from machined aluminum construction that is precision cut from a single block of aluminum and offers a strong, robust chassis. The carbon fiber base is durable and thin while also being lighter and cooler to the touch. The edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass NBT display offers up to 10 times more scratch resistance than soda lime glass, and helps prevent scratches caused during handling, cleaning or wiping.
The XPS 15 is packed with powerful features that help users stay productive and entertained, wherever they go. The 4th generation Intel Core processors provide great performance. The Windows 8.1 OS offers an amazing touch experience that lets users interact naturally and seamlessly with content that matters to them. The optional NVIDIA graphic cards makes playing games and watching moves an exhilarating experience. The 91 WHr, 6-Cell Battery offers up to 11 hours of battery life and the 1 TB hard drive lets users store a gamut of content, from their work files to their favourite multimedia.
