There’s no doubt the AI PC revolution is here. We’re as excited now about the future of the PC as we were when Michael founded the company 40 years ago. New transformative AI experiences will bring enhanced productivity and efficiency to the hands of consumers and professionals alike. Those with an AI PC will never look back, and everyone will want to be part of the action. We’re here to lead the way.

As part of the Dell AI Factory’s growing AI devices and infrastructure offerings, Dell expands its broad portfolio of AI PCs and workstations with the leading number of Copilot+ PCs powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon® X Elite and Snapdragon® X Plus.[1] The brand-new class of devices transforms your AI PC experience with extraordinary performance and battery life, upleveled productivity and powerful security. Our five new laptops, XPS 13, Inspiron 14 Plus, Inspiron 14, Latitude 7455 and Latitude 5455, offer a range of consumer and commercial options that deliver exceptional speed and AI performance to elevate computing and simplify tasks. So, whether you’re a business professional looking to spend more time on strategic work and less time on tedious to-dos, or whether you’re a student looking to prioritise your studies while being untethered to a desk, we have you covered.

With AI processing locally on the device across the custom-integrated Qualcomm Oryon™ CPU, GPU and neural processing unit (NPU), Dell’s new AI PCs offer:

·       Groundbreaking battery life, so you can search, create and communicate without a worry.

·       45 trillion operations per second (TOPS) of performance on the NPU, so you can run AI tasks more efficiently.

·       Instantaneous results when searching your own content using on-device Copilot. This means you don’t need to worry about an internet connection or the cloud, making tasks more seamless, accessible and secure wherever you work or play on your Copilot+ PC.

Amplified creativity

Built for AI, XPS 13 is our first XPS to feature Copilot+ powered by Snapdragon X Elite. The already iconic laptop now has powerful on-device AI that delivers cutting-edge responsiveness and impressive speed for navigating demanding workloads and freeing up time to be more creative, all the while extending time away from the outlet. XPS 13 is our thinnest[2] and lightest XPS and now has all-day battery life with up to 27 hours,[3] suitable for everyday productivity and content creation.  

Consumers can also choose from two new Inspiron AI laptops with exceptional battery life, ideal for students and multitaskers. Both Inspiron 14 Plus (available in ice blue) and Inspiron 14 (available in titan grey) are crafted with light weight, low emissions aluminum and are energy efficient with EPEAT Gold rating.[4]

Unmatched productivity for the business professional

You can operate efficiently and smoothly throughout the day without needing to charge, staying productive no matter where you work.

As our thinnest Latitude laptop ever,[9] team members have the mobile form factor they need for productivity at the desk or on-the-go. The all-aluminum chassis is built with a combination of low emissions and recycled aluminum.[10]

·       The Latitude 5455 packs performance in a mainstream AI business laptop option with a 16:10 FHD+ display and dual speakers. Multiple layers of hardware and firmware security features also protect your Latitudes, from rigorous controls at the supply chain to deep defenses at the BIOS level.
